23 Aug – After several failed high-profile romances, Gerald Anderson declared that his new girlfriend, actress Julia Barretto is the one for him.
In an interview with Boy Abunda on the latter's talk show last week, the "Init sa Magdamag" actor stated that he would marry the actress if it were only up to him.
"But maybe because she's still very young and she still has a lot to offer to our industry, and she still has a lot of talent to show the audience, I don't want to get in the way of that," he said.
It is noted that Julia is eight years younger than Gerald, who turns 32 this year.
"If I had my way, of course, we haven't met our quota," he added.
The two announced their relationship in March this year, more than a year after his very public and messy breakup with Bea Alonzo, who accused him of ghosting her. It sparked speculations that the actor had cheated on her with Julia, his co-star in "Between Maybes".
"If only I could change what had happened, but it's hard," Gerald said to Abunda about the breakup. "It's done. I've made mistakes. We both made mistakes. I really pray, I really hope she will find it in her heart to forgive what happened, forgive me."
Bea is now dating actor Dominic Roque.
