Today, March 10, is Julia Barretto's 24th birthday and, of course, her close-knit family were the first ones to greet her on this special day. On Instagram, Julia's mom Marjorie Barretto shared stunning photos of Julia's photoshoot with BJ Pascual and capped the post with a heartfelt birthday message. "I feel this peace in my heart as we celebrate your birthday today," she wrote.
Marjorie continued the caption by focusing on the ~happiness~ her daughter has been radiating: "I feel your happiness, Jul. The happiest I have seen you in years. And that is my answered prayer. For always and forever you have me, behind and beside you. Happy Birthday to my daughter, my friend, my heart, and my life. We love you so much."
Julia's older sister Dani Barretto-Panlilio also greeted her Insta and, just like her mom, pointed out that Julia is at her "happiest" right now. "To my original baby and #1 fan, hahahaha happy happy birthday, my Juju bear!! Seeing you at your happiest makes my heart so so so happy. That's all I ever wanted for you. Thank you for being an amazing Daughter to mom, sister to us, and Auntie to Millie. May this year bring you more blessings and never-ending happiness. I'll always be here for you no matter what. I love you so so so much!"
It should be noted that Julia recently went public with her relationship with Gerald Anderson just last week. In fact, he also celebrated his 32nd birthday a few days ago on March 7. Julia posted their first official photo on her Insta and lovingly greeted him with the caption: "Every day I celebrate you, but today I am extra grateful. Happy birthday, my love, I am SO PROUD OF YOU."
