Gretchen says many predicted she wouldn’t last 2 months with Tonyboy

Filipino business tycoon Antonio “Tonyboy” Cojuangco Jr. and actress Gretchen Barretto celebrated their 23 years as common-law partners last February 4 as she recalled that most people had predicted that they won’t last for two months.

“Yesterday, my Tony & I celebrated 23 years together. It has been what my dada calls (one hell of a ride) through its ups & downs but it sure is well worth it. For many who witnessed our relationship from the beginning, most predicted that we won’t Last more than 2 months,” said Barretto on Instagram.

“My Tony being 19 years older, coming from a wealthy family, a respected businessman & brilliant one to say the least. Me being an actress, coming from the extreme opposite side of the world & yes, of a different breed & class, but hey Here we are, through it all, I guess it’s safe for me to say that;”

“True love CONQUERS ALL. To say that I am Blessed is an understatement. I opted to celebrate with these lovely people on this photo above, they have been a great part of our journey. To all those on this photo … My gratitude for your unconditional love;”

Dominique Cojuangco, daughter of Barretto and Cojuangco, was not able to celebrate the anniversary with her parents as she was studying in London. Their daughter will turn 22 in February.

“We love you and we missed you last nite,” the actress said in a caption that showed a group photo uploaded on social media.

“To my Tony, Thank you for being my everything rolled into one, my best friend, my dada, my partner in crime, my protector & defender & yes my Santa. I love you for making me get away with anything & everything, thank you for allowing me to be the bratty baby around our Home,” Barretto added.
