Julia Barretto turns 18
Teen star Julia Barretto celebrated her 18th birthday on March 10 with a stunning celebration held at the posh Makati Shangri-La Hotel Ballroom. The special event appeared to be a meeting of clashing sides of her family in one setting.
The celebrant looked exquisite and radiant as she arrived donned in a red Michael Cinco creation.
During the event, Julia’s father Dennis Padilla made it to her special day. Padilla who has been estranged from her mother, Marjorie Barretto said that Julia will always be his baby girl. Among Julia’s guests were her maternal grandparents Miguel and Inday, who scolded Marjorie publicly in 2013; and her aunt Claudine, with whom the grandparents backed up during the heightened argument among the Barretto siblings.
Gretchen Barretto, also Julia’s aunt earlier said she would not be able to attend her debut since she will be flying to London to see her daughter and celebrate her birthday. Gretchen turned 45 last March 6.
Apart from the controversial Barrettos, other A-list stars were present in the highly anticipated event. Kapamilya stars Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla, Rayver Cruz were spotted in the celebration giving Julia birthday wishes as she enters the life of being a lady.
Julia’s coming out party, will air in full on March 29 on ABS-CBN’s "Sunday’s Best."
