Karla Estrada is not one to sugarcoat her hopes of son Daniel Padilla and his girlfriend actress Kathryn Bernardo eventually tying the knot.
In an interview with Toni Gonzaga uploaded on YouTube on Sunday, December 12, the “Familia Blondina” actress expressed her approval and admiration of Daniel and Kathryn’s relationship.
When Toni asked for Karla’s affirmation if marriage is what she wants for Daniel and Kathryn, she firmly replied: “Oo naman kasi napakaswerte na ng anak ko kay Kathryn na very responsible.”
The Queen Mother even joked, "Dapat 'yun na ang maging will talaga ni God...inutusan talaga si God? Pero God, dapat 'yun na ang will mo."
“Ang maganda kasi sa kanila, nag-mature sila sa loob ng relationship, nag-grow,” Karla spoke of KathNiel’s nine-year relationship.
“Ang hirap noon ha. Pero marami ring pagsubok iyan. Pero okay na rin kasi kung naging perfect ‘yun… kung may dumating na hindi maganda, baka hindi ma-handle,” she added.
Last year, as reported by ABS-CBN News, Daniel revealed that he plans on marrying Kathryn before he turns 30.
“My dream wedding would be a beach wedding… Ang nakikita ko talaga after three or four years, basta before ako mag-30, iyon ang gusto ko,” he shared.
“Ayoko masyado patagalin na umabot na sa range ng 30s, kasi ‘pag tumapak na sa 30, ang bilis na naman eh. Sana before 30, maging swabe na ang lahat at matuloy ang kasal," he added.
In a separate statement, Kathryn spoke of their mutual understanding when it comes marriage: “Napag-uusapan naman na talaga namin 'yon. I think nasa tamang age na kami para i-ready ang mga sarili namin sa puntong 'yon.”
Currently, Daniel and Kathryn are filming their new rom-com teleserye "2 Good 2 Be True" directed by Mae Cruz-Alviar. The official premiere date has yet to be revealed.
