PHOTOS: The growing family of Nguya Squad

The Nguya Squad just keeps on growing - and we're loving every single one of them!

The showbiz clique is made up of Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla, Ria Atayde, Marco Gumabao, Khalil Ramos, Gabbi Garcia, Patrick Sugui, Aeriel Garcia, Joe Vargas, and Bianca Yanga, and we noticed that there have been three faces who've been hanging out with them more often, and who share the same love for food and travel.

While there has been no *formal* welcome for these three new recruits, it's safe to say they're officially part of the squad with their presence in their recent gatherings. Scroll through to get to know more of them below:

Joshua Garcia

We first saw Joshua joining KathNiel in a badminton match last March, and appearing on Kathryn's Instagram Stories from time to time.

Months later, he went out on a camping trip with some of the Nguya Squad members followed by a golfing session with Daniel, a fun night out, and most recently, a beach trip, all with the Nguya Squad.

More than finding a new group of friends, Joshua said he is most thankful for the squad for saving him "from drowning in loneliness." Aww ❤

Sofia Andres

In case you didn't know, Sofia and Kathryn's friendship dates back to as early as 2012 during their "Princess and I" days. The two have remained close friends since, that Kathryn even became the first to know about Sofia's pregnancy in 2019.

And just this year, their friendship bloomed even more, with Sofia joining the Nguya Squad's bonding sessions, from out of town trips to Friday night hangout sessions. They even go on spontaneous night road trips with their Daniels together!

Daniel Miranda

Speaking of Daniels, Sofia's boyfriend Daniel Miranda has also been frequently seen with Nguya Squad's activities. He was present during the squad's beach trip to Batangas, the camping trip in Zambales, and perhaps was even the one who invited the squad to their fun night out at the Palacio de Memoria.
