Not many know how Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla’s relationship truly started, but on "I Feel U" last May 31, they finally shared how their love story actually began.
Speaking to Toni and Alex Gonzaga, Kathryn said that she first met Daniel during their guesting for “It’s Showtime.”
“Hindi pa kami formally introduced sa isa’t isa noon, so nagkita lang talaga. Sumasayaw pa si DJ noon. Kasama niya ‘yung ‘Gimik’ cast, tapos ako, kasama ko si John Manalo. Pero ‘yung formally na nag-meet kami, ‘yun na ‘yung kina-cast siya for ‘Growing Up’,” she recalled.
Daniel said he looked forward to seeing Kathryn on the set.
“Siyempre araw-araw mo kasama ‘yung tao. May hidden na akong pagtingin sa kanya. Eventually, you look forward sa every trabaho. Kapag pupunta ako sa trabaho, kasama na rin ‘yung ano kaya ang mangyayari today, ano naman kaya si Kathryn ngayon,” he shared.
Meanwhile, Kathryn said that it was Daniel’s consistency that won her heart.
“Naramdaman ko ‘yun noong naging consistent siya sa pagpunta sa bahay,” she revealed. “Old school. Niligawan din niya si Mama. Tuloy-tuloy ‘yun, parang one year [din siyang nanligaw].”
“Naramdaman ko na sincere ‘yung tao then tinanong ko si Mama. Mukhang okay naman sa kanya, so sabi ko nag-’yes’ na ako,” she said.
Kathryn couldn’t be more grateful that she said “yes” to being Daniel's girlfriend. She called him "a great influence."
“Lahat ng insecurities ko, lahat ‘yun tinatawanan niya lang. Sinasabi niya, ‘Bakit ganyan ka mag-isip? Hindi naman ‘yan big deal.’ Kung paano niya lang i-handle, naba-balance niya. Kung ako lang, magpapakalunod ako diyan. Siya ‘yung nagpa-realize sa akin kung paano i-handle ang ganyang bagay. Maganda 'yung influence niya sa akin doon,” she said.
As for marriage, well, let's just say Daniel knows exactly what he found and knows that he shouldn't let go.
"Siguro 4 years to 5 years now," Daniel shared.
