After years of being estranged to her family, actress Gretchen Barretto finally takes her move to reunite with her family in the wake of her father.
The moment was captured by Gretchen’s sister Claudine on Instagram Thursday, where Gretchen was seen embracing her mother, Estrella.
The touching reunion was even witnessed by President Rodrigo Duterte, who also paid his respects to the bereaved family.
“And then, We are Complete. @gretchenbarretto im so Proud of u. I admire & luv u more today,” Claudine wrote in her Instagram post.
In another post, Claudine captured the moment Duterte arrived at the wake. According to the actress, the President was joined by his former aide and now Senator Christopher “Bong” Go, along with presidential spokesperson Secretary Salvador Panelo.
It can be remembered that in 2013, the Barretto family’s feud made headlines after Barretto’s mother, Estrella “Inday” Barretto, called Gretchen “evil” and a “liar”.
During that time, Gretchen sided with Raymart Santiago, Claudine’s ex-husband, over Claudine’s alleged use of illegal substances.
At that time, there were rumors that Gretchen and fellow sibling Marjorie were ganging up on their sister, Claudine, prompting Inday Barretto to disown Gretchen.
After feuding for years, Gretchen and Claudine reconciled early this year.
It remains unclear what led to their reconciliation.
