“Finally! Welcome John Lloyd Cruz! We’re grateful for the trust,” Valdez posted.

Rumours of John Lloyd joining GMA has been swirling since early this year, and was further fuelled by Bea joining the network.

John Lloyd, who had been a Kapamilya since his debut, announced his hiatus from showbiz in 2017 to focus on his relationship with Ellen Adarna and the subsequent birth of their son Elias. The two have since separated.

He is also currently under Maja Salvador’s talent management agency, Crown Artist Management.
