MANILA - It appears all is well between former couple Claudine Barretto and Raymart Santiago, as the actress took to Instagram on Saturday night to share a photo of their family finally reunited.
Captioned "Happy day!", the photo shows Barretto and Santiago with their children -- 6-year-old Santino and 10-year-old Sabina -- posing inside what appears to be a restaurant.
On Friday, Barretto exclusively confirmed to ABS-CBN News that she and Santiago had reached an agreement concerning their kids.
"We may have failed as husband and wife but we will will strive to be good parents for the sake of our children," Barretto said at the opening of a restaurant in Quezon City.
Barretto expressed optimism that Santiago will fulfill his end of the compromise agreements.
Last week, the former couple faced each other at the Marikina Regional Trial Court in relation to the battle for custody of Sabina and Santino.
The hearing was part of a judicial dispute resolution ordered by Judge Geraldine Macaraig, requiring the feuding camps to discuss a possible arrangement concerning their children.
Barretto accused Santiago of "physical, sexual, psychological and economic" abuse, supposedly dating back to 2002.
These are detailed in her legal complaint against the actor for his alleged violation of of the Anti-Violence against Women and Their Children Act of 2004.
Santiago also alleged that he was a victim of domestic violence. In his complaint, the actor accused his wife of being mentally ill and having a history of drug abuse, claims backed by the actress' estranged siblings Gretchen, Marjorie, and JJ.
Both Barretto and Santiago have repeatedly mentioned the welfare of their children in explaining why they took the spat to court, and why they are seeking sole custody of the kids.
