They've been enjoying every step of their blossoming love story. 

And on Friday night, Joshua Garcia could not help but gush over Julia Barretto's birthday surprise for him. 

The "Good Son" star, who turned 20, was presented with a huge cake by his loving onscreen partner, as seen in his Instagram clip. 

"Maraming salamat baba, kahit may sakit ka [ay] pumunta ka parin. Mahal kita!" Garcia told Barretto in the caption. 

It's a reversal of roles of sorts, as back in June it was Garcia who came up with an unexpected gift for Barretto, days after she was hospitalized. He prepared a candle-lit dinner for the two of them. 

Both have been very vocal about their feelings for one another. 

Garcia has acknowledged to courting the actress, while Barretto said she gave her "Love You to the Stars and Back" co-star "exclusive" rights to date her. 

They arrived at the 2017 Star Magic Ball together.
