The last time fans saw Claudine Barreto was on the 2015 Star Cinema movie “Etiquette for Mistresses.” This means that it has nearly been four years since she stepped away from the spotlight. Her name would still occasionally pop up in the headlines, considering her family’s fame. But for the most part, she has been busy with other things, one of which was being a mother.
Claudine has three beloved children, namely Sabina, Santino and Quia. Santino is her biological son with ex-husband Raymart Santiago. While Sabina and Quia were adopted. Despite not all being related by blood, these pictures show nothing but a happy family. From birthdays and vacations to graduations and other celebrations, Claudine must put her family first before anything else. One person who has helped her along the way is her sister Gretchen Barretto.
It is no secret that the relationship between the Barretto sisters is a controversial one. Yet, during her chat with the King of Talk on Tonight with Boy Abunda, she recounted how she and Gretchen reconnected. “Mas close kami ngayon,” Claudine started off. After a friend called, the two had a spontaneous reunion at the lobby of a hotel. There were no tears shed because they just simply wanted to let each other know that they loved one another. “Ang sarap ng may ate,” she stated.
Now, they practically talk and laugh about anything. Not only that, Gretchen is taking her tita duties very seriously. “She’s helping me raise my children,” Claudine explained. Just like that, the past is in the past. This only proves how strong familial bond truly is.
