Megastar Sharon Cuneta has been paired with so many leading men, but her most unforgettable and inarguably most phenomenal team-up was that with her first on-screen partner Gabby Concepcion, whom she would later marry and then divorce.

Their relationship, which started back when they filmed their first movie “Dear Heart,” was been followed by an entire nation.

Even after their last on-screen union in 1992 for the movie “Tayong Dalawa,” their story has always held a huge place in the hearts of their fans. The enthusiasm for their teamup has been reignited with their recent appearance together in a fast food chain commercial.

Scanning through Sharon and Gabby’s social media accounts, memorabilia of  their stellar careers and real life love story have consistently been posted.

In one lengthy two-part entry, Sharon reposted a story uploaded by a friend named Cathy Sanchez Babao on Facebook about a doctor friend who made a terminally ill patient happy upon showing the Sharon-Gabby reunion commercial.

To Sharon, no matter what happened between her and Gabby, good and bad, every single thing they did together was no less of a success.

“I had a feeling this would be something special – mainly because every single thing Gabby and I ever did and made together (including our daughter, hahaha!) was a sure success, & in more ways than one,” she wrote.

“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, & not exactly friends offscreen.”

My friend, Cathy, wrote this but it was my boss Margot Torres from McDo who forwarded it to me. I have been emotional all day since seeing Gabby’s and my TVC… so many mixed emotions. I had a feeling this would be something special – mainly because every single thing Gabby and I ever did and made together (including our daughter, hahaha!) was a sure success, & in more ways than one. 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, & not exactly friends offscreen. I didn’t even know what to expect of Gabby when we were about to shoot the TVC and prayed so hard that it would be at least pleasant. But now, since 10:20am today, I have been overwhelmed… too happy…in major disbelief…and I don’t know what else and how else I am feeling. I have been alternately crying and laughing – all from my heart – all day long. The TVC is a huge success. So very huge. God is truly good. Then I again realized the power of Gabby’s and my team-up…since he was 17 and I was 15 in “Dear Heart,” we had no idea we would be able to touch so many hearts…even make those from the A-B social bracket go to the cinemas to watch Tagalog movies again or perhaps for the first time in their lives…that we would always pull at our audience’s heartstrings and help them remember how love in its purest form – simple, true, beautiful – can make anyone of any age feel so consumed by it and by the joy only it can bring; for all to always feel young – and in love. Now there is more that only Gabby my original Prince Charming and I can do. Read the article. We probably have been doing this for years and didn’t even know it. 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.. that Gabby and I would (continued in next post) @concepciongabby @itskcconcepcion @p.c.jr @mcdo_ph

After their separation in 1987, the two had a tumultuous relationship. They may still have done movies that, just like everything else, topped box-office records, but in real life, things were’t as smooth-sailing for the couple.

Now, after years of hate and disconnection, Sharon and Gabby have finally found forgiveness. And so their families, friends and fans are just too overwhelmed.

With peace in her heart, Sharon finally reveals that Gabby, her first husband and father of her first born, was her “original prince charming” and she thanks him for everything.

“Now there is more that only Gabby my original Prince Charming and I can do. Thank you, Gabby. For the years of true love, for KC, for all the happy memories.”

so easily fall back into position and do our thing that we – and only we, may I say – can do. 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. Our baby girl is happy. She is also in disbelief. And also as thankful as I am that apart from all the blessings that God has always showered US two together with, this reconnection with you has been His biggest gift. Thank you to all Gabby-Sharon fans, old and new. From the bottom of our (blooming daw. Hahaha!) hearts. And yes, hang in there. This MAY just really be ONLY THE BEGINNING…😉 HELLO, EVERYONE! We are Gabby and Sharon / Sharon and Gabby. Google us if you’re too young to have loved us two forever. Ask your older relatives and friends about us. We might still be just what you all needed, could learn a thing or two from, especially in this day and age. We love you!❤️Kitakits! #McDoKamustaKa #wearesharonandgabby #1981topresent #classic #chickenmcdoandfries #lovenaminto @concepciongabby @itskcconcepcion @p.c.jr @mcdo_ph

“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. Our baby girl is happy. She is also in disbelief.”

In the end, she seemed to put the fans’ hopes up when she somewhat gave off an intriguing statement. With an emphasis on “May,” could she be referring to a possible materialization of their big-screen reunion set to happen this coming month of May?

“And yes, hang in there. This MAY just really be ONLY THE BEGINNING… HELLO, EVERYONE! We are Gabby and Sharon / Sharon and Gabby. Google us if you’re too young to have loved us two forever. Ask your older relatives and friends about us. We might still be just what you all needed, could learn a thing or two from, especially in this day and age. We love you! Kitakits!”

The megastar has also repeatedly posted numerous quotes in which Gabby and daughter, singer/actress KC Concepcion were tagged. All quotes had the same theme – beautiful new beginnings after painful endings.
