KAPAMILYA teen heartthrob Daniel Padilla has said that he would marry actress Kathryn Bernardo if it was the last night of the world.
“Kung huling gabi na ng mundo, wala ng proposal ‘yun, kasal na ‘yun,” said Padilla, when asked a hypothetical question “would you marry or propose to Kathryn Bernardo if it’s the last night of the world” in “Tonight with Boy Abunda aired over ABS-CBN.
Padilla and Bernardo, collectively known as KathNiel, appeared in Abunda’s late night show to thank their legions of fans who supported the hit teleserye “Pangako sa ‘Yo” which aired its finale last Feb. 12.
But the popular love team, together for almost five years now, has refused to label their relationship.
“Four or five years na kaming magkasama at ang masasabi ko lang ay nasa happiest stage kami,” Padlla said. “Yung maturity namin eto na.”
The stars also refused to work with any other love teams these days, saying that they are now more comfortable with each other.
“No. Kasi parang ngayon lang kami uli nagsisimula,” said Padilla, 20, when asked if he would love to work with other screen partners aside from Bernardo.
“Yung stage namin ngayon nag-doble ‘yung joy at nakilala ko na s’ya lalo na nung 2015. Parang buong life-learning experience ‘yun. So ngayon alam na namin i-handle ang isa’t isa,” Bernardo, 19, said.
While the two stars are close, Padilla and Bernardo said that they have not exchanged “I love you’s”.
Despite his busy schedule, Padilla said that he always takes time to connect with his family.
“Naging problema ’yun sa akin na sa sobrang dami ng trabaho, nakakalimutan ko na rin pamilya ko. Para sa akin, masyadog mablis ang buhay at panahon, magugulat ka na lang ‘yung mga kapatid mo ang lalaki na. Ganung moment na andun ka pa rin at nakikita ka pa rin nila,” Padilla said.
After “Pangako,” KathNiel will star in a still untitled movie which will start shooting later this year. “Wala pang schedule pero gagawa kami ng movie this year,” Bernardo said.
In 2015, Padilla and Bernardo starred in the romantic-comedy film “Crazy Beautiful You” under Star Cinema.
