But here they are, celebrating more than two decades together with their beautiful and successful daughter Dominique. What’s more amazing is that Gretchen Barretto seems to be more in love with her partner than ever before.

But there was one moment where Gretchen looked completely shocked, as if someone she wasn’t expecting that surprised her. Then, from out of nowhere, the respected businessman popped out and gave a sweet peck on her lips. The actress truly looked so happy and giddy now that she’s reunited with the love of her life.
It was also adorable how the usually prim and proper Gretchen Barretto asked for Tony Boy’s company like a child. She frowned and pretended to cry, but immediately smiled when her partner gestured something off-cam. It’s honestly refreshing to see a celebrity couple enjoy such a wonderful relationship.
