Christmas is really a time to fix broken bridges and heal wounds. Especially for the traditional Filipino family, it is the best time to renew and reconcile relationships.
As much as we are all aware, they have these rough times as father and daughter. But truly, blood is thicker than water. Julia with Claudia and Leon were spotted with their father and their half-brother.
As far as we can remember, last 2018, Dennis revealed, “Si Julia, medyo matagal na kaming hindi nag-uusap nun, mga April yata. Busy lang, saka nagkaroon din kami ng konting tampuhan din niyan lately.” Seemingly, all is well in between them now.
Fans and followers of Julia were delighted upon seeing their photos and cute short videos during their family bonding.
Claudia shared photos of them together while eating in a restaurant.
She captioned her post, “Christmas dinner”. Tagging her ate Julia Barretto on her post.
While Julia, on the other hand, shared a cute short clip on her Instagram stories and captioned it “Boomerang”. The video shows Julia’s funny side with her younger stepbrother and dad Dennis.

Recalling, the last big issue with Dennis and Julia is when she wanted to remove her family name Padilla and turn it to Barretto. This first surfaced in 2014 and during an interview, although hard, if removing his family name from her daughter’s name will make her happy, he will accept it.
Dennis said then, “Siyempre pag mahal mo ‘yung anak mo, ang una mong iisipin… Pag ang sinabi niya sa akin, ‘Yeah, Pa, it will give me peace’ o ‘magiging maligaya ako,’ papayag ako.”
Meanwhile, here are some of the reactions from, the netizens:
