In an interview with PEP recently, Juliana’s mom, actress-turned-politician Lucy Torres, revealed that Andres had actually asked his father, legendary actor Aga Muhlach to call Juliana’s father, another film legend Richard Gomez, to ask for his permission to take her daughter to the event. Aga and Richard have been friends since the early aughts.
Lucy explained, “ I think it was election day, or the day after, we were in Ormoc and Aga called up Richard. Basically Aga was asking if Andres could call up Juliana for his prom."
Andres and Juliana didn’t exactly seem close prior to their prom date, Lucy added.
She said, “You know, we would see them in restaurants and functions here and there... and the kids probably have common friends, but they study in different schools so they never really got the chance to hang out."
It is of note that Juliana was last linked to “Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky Season 7” alum Marco Gallo. He confirmed their split last year.
