Kathryn Bernardo couldn’t believe it when her mom Min Bernardo surprised her with very own studio as a gift for her 25th birthday.
The Kapamilya star had always wanted to build her own studio for shoots and meetings as there aren’t a lot near where she lives. So Mommy Min decided to build one without Kathryn even knowing.
Mommy Min revealed on the latest episode of “Everyday Kath” how she managed to pull it off.
“Matagal na namin balak kasi ang magkaroon ng studio, pero balak lang ‘yun. Akala ni Kathryn wala akong ginagawa for that. Pero since nung October, nakausap ko na ang kanyang architect, ang kanyang contractor, para tulungan ako kung pa’no namin mapapagawa itong studio na hindi nalalaman ni Kath,” she shared.
Mommy Min had regular meetings with the architect and the contractor behind Kathryn’s back and every time she would catch them, Mommy Min simply brought out the acting queen in her.
“So ganito lang ‘yun. Nag-detalye lang ako kung paano ang isang studio. Simpleng-simple lang siya,” she continued. “Then dumating ‘yung time na pinapunta ko ‘yung contractor sa shoot namin, nagulat pa nga si Kathryn, ‘Oh, ba’t nandito siya?’ [Sabi ko], ‘Wala, napadaan lang.’”
Mommy Min also got some help from people close to the “The House Arrest of Us” star, like her friend and hairstylist John Valle.
“Isang kakuntsaba ko dito si John Valle. ‘Yung mga glam team niya, alam ‘yung balak ko. Alam ‘yung pinagagawa ko. Then sabi ko kay John, ‘Everday Monday meeting namin sa house na pinagapagawa nga. Baka pwedeng tulungan mo ‘ko,’” said Mommy Min.
She got more than just diversion from John, as he informed Mommy Min the kind of studio Kathryn actually wanted — with French windows, lots of natural lighting, and all.
Of course, Mommy Min let Kathryn’s boyfriend Daniel Padilla in on the surprise as well. “Alam ni DJ ‘yung mga pinagagawa ko. Minsan pinupuntahan ni Daniel ‘yun.”
He was also the one who gave Kathryn the grand tour when it was finally time to show it to her.
