Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, known as the loveteam “KathNiel,” finally broke their silence over the status of their relationship.
During the press conference of their new movie entitled “The Hows of Us,” Padilla had a slip of the tongue when he constantly referred to himself as the “boyfriend” of Bernardo. Meanwhile, Bernardo also confirmed that some of the heated scenes in their movie were based on their past arguments as a couple.
Yet, the 23-year old teen king also revealed that they have been together as a couple for “more than five years,” a statement that was, later on, confirmed by the 22-year-old actress herself.
In an interview, Min Bernardo, Kathryn’s mother, also confirmed the relationship between the two. She also added that she was aware that Padilla was courting her “bunso” but was surprised when Kathryn confirmed that she and Daniel are already in a relationship.
“Oo naman, siyempre may blessings. Before ‘yong anak ko sumagot. Ay, no, nakasagot na pala siya saka niya sinabi sa akin,” Min Bernardo said in an interview.
She also added, “When it comes sa relasyon nila, lagi silang nag-aaway niyan, lagi ko sinasabi, huwag sila maghihiwalay or huwag sila matutulog nang magkaaway sila. I-settle nila ‘yon before sila maghiwalay.”
KathNiel will be headlining once again a film directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina under Star Cinema, “The Hows of Us.” The film will tackle the story of George and Primo, a couple who goes through a rough patch in their long-term relationship.
The film is set to hit the cinemas on August 29, 2018.
