Who is Coco Martin‘s real-life girlfriend? Reports suggest the Filipino actor is dating a fellow actor, Julia Montes.
Julia, 27, has been consistently linked to Coco Martin, 40 since they first worked together in the 2012 drama series Walang Hanggan.
The two have neither confirmed nor denied the issue, although Julia would occasionally post about Coco on her Instagram account, either to greet him on his birthday or show support for his acting projects.
Their love lives have been evident and opened to the public as they flaunt and show support for each other on their social media accounts.
The two are affably called by their fans as “CocoJul”.
Julia Montes surprised her fans and followers on Wednesday, November 24, when she shared photos of her and her rumored boyfriend, Coco Martin.
The photos, which she uploaded on Instagram, show her and Coco relaxing on the beach while wearing motorcycle gear.
“Today is a great day to smile and be happy,” she captioned the snaps.
As of this writing, more than 100,000 have “liked” Julia’s post, with thousands of netizens, including their fellow celebrities, expressing their admiration and happiness for the rumored couple.
“Walang kasing ganda,” wrote Dimples Romana. “AHHHHH,”
Maxene Magalona simply wrote, followed by a string of heart eyes emojis.
Meanwhile, Miles Ocampo, Joseph Marco, Dawn Zulueta, Isabel Oli, Jessy Mendiola, and Teresa Loyzaga all left heart emojis.
Just recently, Julia also delighted fans when she wrote a touching birthday message for Coco as he turned 40.
In her post last November 1, she wrote: “Sa taong sobrang magmahal sa kapwa, kaibigan, pamilya at sa trabaho. ‘Wag mong kakalimutan na biyaya ka sa lahat ng taong natutulungan at nakakasama mo.”
“May the joy that you have spread come back to you not only on this day but throughout the rest of your life. Mahal ka namin. Happy birthday!”
They were also spotted together in Boracay earlier this year, just weeks before Julia admitted in an interview that she is in love with someone who is also from the entertainment industry.
“Actually, hindi ko kasi siya sasabihing secret. We just chose this path kasi we both believe na, ‘Ang atin, atin. Pumasok tayo sa trabahong ‘to na magulo. ‘Wag na nating paguluhin pati ‘yung atin,'” the actress was quoted as saying.
“There’s nobody…It’s just a personal choice. Personal choice namin ‘yun. And for us kasi talaga, naniniwala kami ‘pag ano kasing nandiyan, sisirain. ‘Pag hindi kayo, ‘pag magka-love team kayo, gustong maging kayo. ‘Pag kayo, pagsisirain kayo. So, might as well, “O, anong alam niyo?’ Okay, kung anong alam niyo, okay po. ‘Yun na lang.”
Recently, the couple, also known as “CocoJul”, reunited on television through FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, as part of the show’s sixth-anniversary celebration. Their reunion comes six years after they were last seen on TV via Wansapanataym: Yamishita’s Treasures in 2015.
Currently, the two are also gearing up for their reunion film. The movie was shot in Pola, Oriental Mindoro early this year and is reportedly being helmed by award-winning director Brillante Mendoza.
Coco Martin and Julia Montes are not engaged nor married yet. The two got married in the phenomenal TV series, ‘Walang Hanggan’.
Julia Montes and her boyfriend Coco do not have a child together but they are godparents to Baby Felize. Julia also attached a message on her present. “To our inaanak Felize, Welcome to the Christian world. May God protect you always and know that you are one lucky baby to have your parents.
Julia Montes admitted she is in love in an interview in 2021
Julia Montes is not one who speaks openly about her love life but in a rare interview, the actress admitted that she is in love right now.
“Actually, hindi ko kasi siya sasabihing secret. We just chose this path kasi we both believe na, ‘Ang atin, atin. Pumasok tayo sa trabahong ‘to na magulo. ‘Wag na nating paguluhin pati ‘yung atin,'” Julia said in an interview with G3 San Diego for Mega Entertainment’s latest issue, released this Thursday, July 1.
“There’s nobody…It’s just a personal choice. Personal choice namin ‘yun. And for us kasi talaga, naniniwala kami ‘pag ano kasing nandiyan, sisirain. ‘Pag hindi kayo, ‘pag magka-love team kayo, gustong maging kayo. ‘Pag kayo, pagsisirain kayo. So, might as well, ‘O, anong alam niyo?’ Okay, kung anong alam niyo, okay po. ‘Yun na lang,” she added.
When asked in her Mega interview why she personally wants to stay silent about her love, Julia stressed that she has been an open book all her life.
“Siguro kasi sa buong buhay ko, hindi ako selfish. This time, gusto ko ‘yung akin, akin,” she said.
She also said that she didn’t want pressure from other people when it came to her love life, as she got candid about the pressure of growing up in the spotlight.
“Growing up, ang dami ng pressure. Pero ‘yung lumaki ka sa children’s show na parang siyempre lumalaki kaming may mga pressures, gusto ko sa aspeto ng buhay ko na ‘to, walang pressure,” Julia, who made her showbiz breakthrough via the kiddie gag show Goin’ Bulilit, said.
“‘Yung taong involved, ako, ‘yun lang ‘yung… ‘yun lang ‘yung importante, ‘yun lang ‘yung–’yun lang ‘yung nagma-matter. Walang opinions ng ibang tao kasi hindi naman natin lahat mape-please. And that’s my point of view na parang ‘wag na natin stress-in ‘yung sarili natin sa labas. Ito ‘yung atin so let’s just be happy and enjoy,” she added.
According to Julia, it was through her current relationship that she has learned to be more expressive and open.
“Siguro ‘yun pala ‘yung pakiramdam na inaalagaan ka naman. Hindi lang ikaw ‘yung nagbibigay ng love. Meron ka nang nare-receive na love. Mas naging expressive ako. Mas expressive ako sa mga bagay na emotions, especially when it comes to the aspect of love –’yung, ‘I miss you,’ ‘I love you,’ ‘yung hindi na ako nahihiya to take care of somebody. Dati kasi meron pang, ‘Baka isipin naman masyado akong ano.’ Or sa family ko, minsan–dahil nakalakihan namin na hindi kami sweet, ngayon mas sweet ako dahil sa love. So, ang laki ng difference,” she said.
Meanwhile, when asked what would be her answer if the one she loves proposes to her tomorrow, Julia exclaimed: “Yes, of course!”
“I will not protect it naman if hindi,” she added.
