MANILA, Philippines — Julia Montes, rumored girlfriend of Coco Martin, admitted that she and the “Ang Probinsyano” star share the same faith in Quiapo’s famous Black Nazarene.
Last January 9, millions trooped to the Black Nazarene’s annual Traslacion procession, and among the blackened Christ’s known devotees is Martin.
In an interview last Monday for her upcoming soap opera “Asintado,” Julia told
Philstar.com that she, too, is a believer of the Nazareno.
“Yes, napagkwentuhan namin ‘yun before and meron din naman akong beliefs and naging Catholic din naman ako ngayon, so I do believe in that,” Julia explained.
She recalled that her devotion began even before she and Coco became an item.
“Nu’ng childhood ko, before nasa Pandacan kami, malapit kami sa Quiapo, dun kami nagsisimba ng lola ko bukod sa Baclaran.. So, meaningful s’ya sa’kin kasi lumaki akong lola’s girl tapos nagkataon, ‘yun ‘yung pinupuntahan naming church, so meaningful s’ya sa’kin every time may pupuntahan kami tapos dadaan ng church, talagang I make it a point na bababa ako at mag-pe-pray.”Entertainment ( Article MRec ), pagematch: 1, sectionmatch: 1
