Gerald Anderson decided to celebrate his 32nd birthday doing relief operations for the Aeta community together with the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG), World Vision Philippines, and his now confirmed SO Julia Barretto.
The Department of Transportation Philippines (DOTr) shared all the deets about the actor doing relief work for about 300 Aeta families at the Lupang Pangako Resettlement Area in Barangay San Agustin, Iba, Zambales on March 6, 2021, a day before his actual birthday. The area was built by World Vision Philippines in 1993 as a dedicated haven for displaced Aetas in Botolan, Zambales.
Residents of the place received basic commodities like canned goods, instant noodles, and hygiene supplies during the operations.
Gerald thanked World Vision Philippines and the PCG for the help they provided during the initiative. He currently holds the Lieutenant Commander rank (LCDR) in the Philippine Coast Guard Auxilliary (PCGA).
"Nagpapasalamat ako kasi kasama ko kayo sa birthday ko. Sana nakapagbigay ng kaunting saya sa inyo ang pagbisita namin dito. Hiling ko rin na maging 'partner' kami ng komunidad na ito sa mga susunod pang pagkakataon."
Gerald also recently clarified his relationship status with Julia in a tell-all interview with Boy Abunda. When asked if his Between Maybes co-star is a source of happiness for him—and his heart—right now, he answered, "Very happy, Tito Boy. It's a yes."
Julia also made it IG-official by posting a sweet birthday greeting for her beau. The actress shared a sweet photo of them together at the beach with the caption: "Every day I celebrate you, but today I am extra grateful. Happy birthday, my love, I am SO PROUD OF YOU."
