On the night of Joshua Garcia's birthday on October 7, Julia Barretto posted on her Instagram account a long and heartfelt message to the one who was there for her during difficult times: Joshua Garcia. The message is accompanied by a video montage of her and Joshua, with Karen Carpenter's "You" playing along.
She began her message by saying, "In the midst of all the judgments, the unkind words thrown at me, in the midst of all the hate and those who doubted me and my heart. There was you."
Julia thanked Joshua for sticking out for her even when many people doubted her. She calls her love-team partner "the real lucky charm." She ended the greeting with, "Thank you for being you. Happy Birthday."
Just when we thought JoshLia couldn't get any cuter with that birthday salubong video, they gave us a beautiful open letter.
Here's the full text of Julia's message:
"In the midst of all the judgments, the unkind words thrown at me, in the midst of all the hate and those who doubted me and my heart. There was you. You believed in me. You understood me. You embraced my soul. You saw the good in me and continue to bring out the best in me. You bravely and proudly call me your lucky charm despite the others who think otherwise. You protected me, cared for me and loved me for all that I am. You make me a better person, baba, and I am so glad to have found my way to you. You are the real lucky charm. Today (and everyday), you deserve to be celebrated because there is absolutely no one like you. Thank you for being you. Happy Birthday."
