While back in the country, Jackie Forster took the time to reunite with some of her dearest friends in show business — actresses who were her fellow Regal Babies.

Forster reconnected with actresses Ruffa Gutierrez, Sunshine Cruz, Karla Estrada and Donita Rose through a dinner date at a restaurant in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Monday, July 16. She was accompanied by her son Kobe Paras and rumored girlfriend, Ateneo Lady Eagles volleybelle Ponggay Gaston.

The actresses are referred to as Regal Babies for starring in films by Regal Entertainment back in the 1990s. There was one instance when some of them worked together, in the 1992 film “First Time… Like A Virgin” starring Forster, Cruz and Estrada, with the late star comedian Rene Requiestas.

Aside from working for Regal, Rose, Gutierrez, Cruz and Estrada appeared on the much-loved teen-oriented variety show “That’s Entertainment” which ran from 1986 to 1996. JB
