Young love Jak Roberto and Barbie Forteza remain to shower our news feeds with sweet, sparkly sugar coating as they spread love in the social media community by posting photos of them together in Sapporo, Japan to celebrate a very special milestone – Jak’s 26th birthday – last December 2. Their couple photos are definitely “goals” as they pose for the camera with all smiles and sweetness against the perfect, powdery white snow of Hokkaido. Some photos were also taken at the Sapporo Clock Tower and the Yakiniku Tokuju. Their famous tandem, popularly known as “JakBie” started after being co-stars in GMA Network’s hit teleserye “Meant To Be”. The two revealed their relationship to the public in 2017, and have since been spotted together in out of the country trips, such as Hong Kong and Japan.
Barbie Forteza’s entry to stardom started in 2009 when she portrayed the role of young Jodi at GMA Network’s remake of television drama series from South Korea, “Stairway to Heaven”. After a year, she played a role in another soap opera television series, “First Time”. The twenty two year old celebrity and model won “Best Supporting Actress” award in the new breed category during the 10th Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival for her indie film “Mariquina” last 2014. The multilatented actress’ love for music urged her to release her self-titled first album in 2013 under MCA Music record label. Her single “Meron Ba” was used as the theme song for a sought-after Korean novela in giant television network, GMA-7.
Barbie’s boyfriend, Jak Roberto, is a twenty six year old singer from local boy band 3LOGY. He is also an actor under the same network and is currently one of the casts in GMA’s television drama series “Kara Mia”. Jak is the brother of GMA actress Sanya Lopez.
