In fact, the paparazzi shots of the two spread like wildfire on March 21 as they arrive at a local airport.
Netizens described that they are clad in couple’s white polo shirts, their hats matched the colors of their pants, the guy in black and the lady in brown.
Although they were wearing face masks and face shields, Coco and Julia were still recognized by those who saw them. They said that both of them are bound to Boracay.
According to Julia’s fan page on Instagram: “Coco and Julia spotted in Boracay! This made my heart jump for joy and happiness. Enjoy your vacation our dearest Cocojul.”

In another Instagram fan page of the actress, it was mentioned that it was a post-birthday celebration getaway of the long-time rumored couple.
Julia’s birthday was on March 19, she turned 26.
The photos went viral online as netizens passed it on social media.
The news about the relationship of Coco and Julia have been circulating for quite a long time. In August 2016, Julia did not deny Coco as the closest man in her life.
She said, “Flattered naman po. Kasi kahit ako, kapag ako natatanong, siya naman po ang close ko, siya rin ang…”
Asked what if the King of Primetime Teleserye woos her, what is his chance?” The actress answered, “Kapag nandun na po, saka na po ako sasagot. Ang hirap ng mga tanong niya, ang hirap mag…
“Ang tagal na naming malapit sa isa’t isa, wala pang “Walang Hanggan,” may napagtrabahuan na kami before.
“Then, nagkatrabaho ulit kami sa “Ikaw Lamang” at “Once Upon A Time.” During that time, they have known each other for three years.
In October 2016, Cornerstone Entertainment, Inc. announced that they would be managing Julia’s showbiz career.
Talks went around that it was Coco who urged Julia to leave Star Magic, the talent arm of ABS CBN so that they could be open about their relationship.
Both Coco and Julia were under the management of Star Magic, however, Coco is now under the care of Boby Arboleda.
Time went by and still, both Coco and Julia are still mum about their relationship.
In December 2017, there were rumors that Julia and Coco parted ways.
In January 2018, during the grand presscon of “Asintado,” where Julia played the lead role in the afternoon series of ABS CBN, the actress was asked why the issue about her and Coco could not stop.
The actress’ simple reply, “Kasi siguro, close talaga kami. Hindi lang siya naging close dahil lang sa trabaho, kasi prior nga, lagi naming sinasabi before pa, nagkasama na kami.
“Hindi siya yung, parang, after work, wala na. May communication pa rin.”
And if Coco could be a perfect boyfriend, Julia smilingly commented, “Maano siya, maalagang tao, mabait, mapagmahal. So, kung as a boyfriend, yes.”
Julia gives birth to her daughter with Coco?
Then on April 1, 2019, another news broke out that Julia gave birth to her child courtesy of Coco. According to the news, Julia gave birth on the latter part of March at the Cardinal Santos Medical Center in San Juan City.
This was cemented by a blind item on Facebook from a showbiz insider also on April 1.
Some industry insiders confirmed that Julia, indeed, gave birth and Coco is the father of her child.
The news continued to heat up about Coco and Julia’s child when netizens noticed a post where there was a feeding bottle on the background of Coco’s photo on Instagram on December 25, 2020.
But up to this time, fans of Coco and Julia are still waiting for them to admit their relationship and their child.(ECDiao/MTVN)
