And now for a dose of love team feels: Claudine Barretto remembers Rico Yan
He would’ve turned 40 this year.
(SPOT.ph) They were the It couple of the ’90s, the unlikely on-screen pairing who bickered their way into our hearts in Dahil Mahal na Mahal Kita. We rejoiced when they turned their reel romance into a reality. And we were all shocked when Rico Yan suddenly passed away in 2002.

Almost 13 years later, Claudine Barretto paid a small tribute to her former on-screen and real-life partner with an Instagram post on his birthday (March 14). She posted a photo of them from their last movie together, Got To Believe and wrote: "Happy Birthday RY. You will forever remain in our hearts."
Together, they topbilled memorable projects like Flames: The Movie, Mula Sa Puso (the teleserye and the movie), Saan Ka Man Naroroon, and Dahil Mahal na Mahal Kita where he said the unforgettable line, "I don’t like the way you dress. I even don’t like your makeup...But I love you."
