On March 6, 2021, a day before Gerald Anderson's 32nd birthday, he and girlfriend Julia Barretto were spotted doing relief work for an Aeta community in Iba, Zambales. The Department of Tourism shared photos and details of the program where 300 Aeta families at the Lupang Pangako Resettlement Area received basic commodities like canned goods, instant noodles, and hygiene supplies.
The couple has been low-key about their participation in the event until recently. Yesterday, March 17, Julia shared two photos of her and Gerald at the relief ops. In her Instagram Story, she sweetly wrote, "thank you for sharing your [world] with me @andersongeraldjr [heart emoji]"
Gerald reposted the story and captioned it with, "Doing our little part [heart emoji]"
Gerald is no stranger to these kinds of outreach programs and is in fact a Lieutenant Commander of the Philippine Coast Guard Auxiliary unit. In November 2020, Gerald and his unit were sent to Cagayan and Isabela for relief operations due to typhoon Ulysses.
The Kapamilya actor confirmed his relationship with Julia when his tell-all interview with Boy Abunda dropped on March 5. Since then, they've posted about each other on their respective birthdays—Gerald's on March 7, and Julia's on March 10.
