Daniel Padilla on marrying Kathryn Bernardo: 'Ready na ako'

Marriage has always been in the cards for Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo, who are about to mark their 10th year together. But this time, it's safe to say that they've never been more ready to settle down ⁠— at least for Daniel.

In a one-off reunion special titled “2Good 2gether" which premiered on Thursday, May 12, the reel-and-real life couple talked about their milestones and growth as a love team, along with their plans for the next chapter of their lives with the three legendary directors who helped them shape their illustrious showbiz career: Cathy Garcia-Molina, Mae Cruz-Alviar, and Olivia Lamasan.



The two, who have come a long way together career-wise, were asked about what they dream to achieve next together in another 10 years.

“Ang dami pang mangyayari. Imagine, 36 na ako by then," Kathryn answered.

This is when Direk Cathy finally brought up the topic of marriage for the two.

“‘Pag 10 years? Siyempre, meron na,” the actress added.

Daniel also echoed Kathryn's answer, saying, “Meron na.”

“'Yun din. 'Yun na ‘yung ultimatum ko: ‘pag hindi pa ako kinasal... Kathryn, ‘pag ayaw mo pa, ayoko na!” he added in jest, before turning serious. “'Yun na ‘yung next chapter ng buhay namin. 10 years na kami rin. Iba ‘yung kasal. After that, you build a house together, build a family together," he said.

“'Yun na ‘yung magsi-seal sa inyo,” Kathryn added.



The "2 Good 2 Be True" leading man also believes that settling down is the next big step he'll make. “Ako kasi, looking forward na rin ako doon. Kasi, ano pa bang [goal] ko sa buhay ko? 27 na ako. What’s next — sa aming dalawa?” he said.

“At saka dati pa naman, 16 at 17 years old pa lang kami, pinag-uusapan na namin ‘yan," he admitted. "Now, we’re here. What’s the plan after three or two years?” 

Kathryn also revealed that they originally planned to settle down at 26. However, it changed over time seeing how they both weren’t ready just yet.

Daniel then looked Kathryn in the eye before making a deal with his girlfriend: “Trenta, usapan natin. Hindi na mamo-move ‘yun.”

However, Kathryn disagreed and explained: “Dapat 'pag ready tayo pareho. You can’t say that to me kasi ‘pag marriage, dapat pareho tayong ready. Alam mong hindi pa tayo ready ngayon. Kailangan pa natin aralin ang buhay, kung paano.”

“Baka ikaw ang hindi pa ready,” Daniel replied before declaring, “Ready na ako.”
