An inside look into Joshua’s 'prom-posal' for Julia

Amidst everyone’s expectations that Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto would attend this year’s much-awaited Star Magic Ball together, the young actor felt he needed to show his special lady how loved she is. 

“Feeling ko naman, kahit ‘di ako tanungin, magiging partner ko pa rin siya (Julia) sa Ball. Kaya lang, ang pangit naman nun sa side ni Julia - gusto ko rin ma-feel niya na tinanong siya, ‘yung effort, ‘yung effort ‘yun eh,” Joshua shared in an interview with PEP. 

Joshua said that it didn’t matter whether he did something simple or extravagant. “Kung may effort ka, masasabi mong mahal mo ‘yung tao na ‘yun,” he said. 

If you haven’t seen the simple yet extremely sweet “prom-posal” that made everyone go wild and wishing for their own Joshua, here it is: 

As shown in the video, Julia was very touched by Joshua’s surprise, and with that, he said, “I’m happy na napasaya ko siya. ‘Yun lang naman ang importante sa akin, ‘yung mapasaya ko siya.” 

Joshua shared how he came up with this idea, stemming from Julia’s love of children. 

“Kumuha ako sa Children’s Joy Foundation ng mga bata na kumakanta,” he explained, answering the unspoken question as to where he got a group to serenade his lady love.

“May pinaaral akong kanta sa kanila (Ed Sheeran’s 'Perfect'), tapos ‘yung placard na hawak nila, pinagpuyatan namin ‘yun.” Joshua shared that bought the materials himself - the cardboards, illustration boards, cartolinas - and with the help of the kids, managed to make all the placards that say “WILL U BE MY DATE?” 

But despite the sweet gestures of love between the two, Joshua affirmed that they are still in no rush for an official relationship. “Sinusulit namin kada oras na dumaraan."

“Saka nag-iipon pa ako,” Joshua added. “Lakas ng loob, lakas ng puso.”
