MANILA – Richard Gomez and Marjorie Barretto proudly took to social media to share the recent academic achievements of their respective daughters, Juliana and Claudia.
Juliana and Claudia both attend the same Catholic international school and have been best friends for years now.
During their recognition day, Gomez shared a video showing off Juliana’s medal.
Juliana is the only child of Gomez and Lucy Torres.
Meanwhile, Barretto also shared a video of Claudia receiving her medal on stage.
She followed it up with another post with the two of them in the photo as she thanked Claudia for making her the happiest mom on that day.
“Just as I was starting to feel that single parenting my grown up children was getting more and more challenging every day, I found myself lately praying extra harder for strength and wisdom as a mother,” Barretto wrote in the caption.
“Today, my daughter Claudia gives me another academic award, and I suddenly feel recharged. I feel strong again. I feel I'm not doing so bad after all, and I am reminded that the rewards are greater than the trials I face in raising them. Thank you Claudia,” she added.
Claudia is Barretto’s second child with comedian Dennis Padilla.
