KC reacts to ShaGab’s reunion

KC Concepcion, the only daughter of screen veterans Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion, made public a message for her father following the onscreen reunion of her parents in a fast food commercial.

The 32-year-old actress left the comment on her father’s Instagram selfie with Cuneta, taken during the shoot of the now-viral McDonald’s commercial ad featuring the former couple.

“Don’t ever leave again,” Concepcion wrote.

In another post of her father showing a video of him with Cuneta, Concepcion noted a similarity between her parents, saying, “Papa always videoing priceless moments, like Mama.”

Her comments caught the attention of Gabby’s thousands of followers, with many expressing happiness for their family. Cuneta was also among those who saw her daughter’s comments, prompting her to reply.

“That’s true,” Cuneta said, referring to her and Gabby frequently taking videos, “and you better thank us [because] you have so many photos of your lifetime because of us two! And your work.”

“But your Papi was so having fun selfie-ing his selfies! Cutie like you mija! I diezvente you so much, Qwisteena,” the veteran singer added, using a term that was formerly a code for “I love you” between her and Gabby.

Considered as one of the most popular love teams in the ‘80s, Gabby Concepcion and Sharon Cuneta’s onscreen romance bled into real life, paving the way for their 1984 wedding. A year later, they welcomed their only child, Maria Kristina Cassandra Concepcion or KC.

The couple eventually separated. Their marriage was annulled, and they have both re-married. Concepcion is currently with Genevieve Gonzales, while Cuneta is married to Sen. Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan.

Sharon admitted that she also did not know what to expect of Gabby when they were about to shoot the commercial and that she prayed so hard that it would at least be pleasant.

But seeing now how their onscreen reunion, no matter how brief, made a lot of people happy, Cuneta said she is “too happy, in major disbelief, and I don’t know what else and how else I am feeling.”

Cuneta then thanked Concepcion, who she referred to as her “original Prince Charming.”

“Thank you, Gabby. For the years of true love, for KC, for all the happy memories. Thank you for and to McDonald’s for allowing us to do this together. Thank you to our amazing God who has allowed what I thought would never be possible in KC’s lifetime to happen,” she said.

Cuneta said she herself was surprised how the two of them easily connected and were able to do what was asked of them during the shoot.

“We just picked up from where we left off. The power of ‘US,’ Gabby. May God bless our renewed friendship and may we truly learn to forgive as we say we do and keep only all the good that we shared, for the next 100 years,” she said.

To end her post, Cuneta said her reconnection with Concepcion has been God’s biggest gift for it made not only the two of them happy, but also their daughter.

In a separate update on Facebook on Sunday, Cuneta admitted that she once thought that she could no longer make a comeback.

“I must admit the view from here is still so much better than down there, where I had fallen, been kicked, left for dead for years. God is good and faithful. I feel like He just pulled me out so effortlessly (of course) and quickly from some quicksand I had been struggling to pull myself out of but never could,” she said.

“I am eternally grateful. You will never know how very thankful this girl’s heart is for your love and support. Thank you for making a little twelve-year-old girl’s dreams come true. And thank you for allowing the big girl she has become to continue dreaming,” she said.

Cuneta also thanked Concepcion for being her “partner” again in this new and important chapter in her life.

“I am once again... JUST Gettin’ Started...for real this time! Watch me! Watch what God has in store for all of us still,” she said.

Sharon admitted to feeling overwhelmed by the positive feedback she has been receiving since her onscreen reunion with former husband Gabby Concepcion aired last Friday.

In a lengthy Instagram post, Cuneta shared that the success of her new project with Concepcion has given her “so many mixed emotions.”

“I had a feeling this would be something special,” she said. “But I didn’t know what to expect in terms of how our public would receive us now that we are older, now that we have been apart for 26 years onscreen, and not exactly friends off screen.”

Actress Angel Locsin has been friends with Neil Arce for seven years. But it was only last October when she first opened up about their possible romance. 

She explained she was hesitant to enter a romantic relationship with Arce because she doesn’t want to ruin their friendship. 

But they’ve been very open about their feelings for one another, with Angel saying that he was the “best part” of her 2017. 

In her New Year’s message to Arce, she said: “Falling in love with you was the best part of my 2017. Excited to share my 2018 with you.”

And now, the “Pilipinas Got Talent” judge has finally confirmed she and the movie producer have taken their relationship up another notch. 

“Yes, we’re together,” she told PEP. 

She shared that she and Arce became a couple just this month.
