For their seventh anniversary as a couple, Kathryn Bernardo showed her cheesy side for her Tangi, Daniel Padilla.
The "Hello, Love, Goodbye" actress surprised all of us when she shared a video from their Amanpulo trip on Instagram early today, May 26, along with a long, heartwarming letter for her Bal. Apparently, the two are celebrating seven blissful years of being in love. And just like you guys, we weren't ready for all the emotions it brought us!
She began her message with a question they’re usually asked: "How do you stay in love?" And while they can't answer it either, she gave us a brief explanation of how everything between them just happens naturally.
"Because for us, we just wing it—it's not forced, it's not planned, it's not strategic. There's no formula."
"But these I do know: staying in love is a decision you make every day. You have to appreciate what you have every single day. You have to grow together—and sometimes that means growing individually, but never growing apart. And no matter how hard life may be, you never give up on each other."
"Today, as we celebrate our seventh anniversary, I'm thankful for many things."
Kathryn then enumerated how Daniel's so much like his characters in their teleseryes and movies: Patrick of "Growing Up", Gino of "Princess and I", Joaquin of "Got To Believe", Dos of "Can't Help Falling In Love", and Primo of "The Hows Of Us" and how she's so much grateful for all of them.
"First, I'm thankful that you're a lot like Patrick. You have that natural charm about you that you're not even aware of."
"I'm also thankful of how Gino reminds me of you. You tend to look arrogant at times, but you're actually genuinely kind and always the first person to fight for love."
"I'm thankful that you're like Joaquin, who's always enveloped in some kind of mystery that never fails to draw me in."
"I'm thankful that you're like Dos. You're fun, you're adventurous, and you're such a natural at making people laugh."
"Of course, I'm thankful that you're so much like Primo. You have so much passion in everything that you do and you always work hard for your dreams. You're sincerely apologetic when you need to be, and you cherish and prioritize the people you love above all."
"But more than anything in the world, I'm thankful that you are you—you're DJ, my Tangi, my Bal."
As if those weren't enough to make our blue hearts melt, she even listed more reasons why he's thankful to have DJ in her life. Paki-ready na ang tissue, towel, panyo, batya, lahat na!!!
"You massage my feet after a long day wearing heels, you get mad when I forget to text you goodnight, you tie my shoelaces and even cut my nails, you randomly whisper 'I love you' and give me a kiss on the forehead."
"I love how you're scared of small planes so you never let go of my hand during flights. I love your sweaty hands, the scent of your shirt, your OC tendencies, and how you're so much taller when you hug me because it makes me feel so safe."
And to end her letter, Kathryn greeted her "dream guy-to-reality guy" a Happy Anniversary.
"Happy, happy seventh anniversary to us, mahal! Thank you for being my dream guy and my reality guy at the same time. Falling and staying in love with you is the best decision I've ever made."
Happy seventh anniversary, love birds! Thank you for always making our KathNiel hearts happy 💙
Kathryn and Daniel last topbilled the worldwide hit "The Hows Of Us" in 2018.
