Karylle and her mom Zsa Zsa Padilla
MANILA – Karylle is extremely happy that her mom, veteran singer Zsa Zsa Padilla, has finally found someone to love again almost two years after the death of the country's Comedy King Dolphy.
Dolphy was Padilla’s partner for over 20 years until the comedian's death in 2012.
In an interview with the Philippine Entertainment Portal, Karylle said her mom deserves to be happy again because she has been mourning for so long.
“For a long time, nagiging malungkot na siya kasi sa nangyari nga. Hindi na naaalala ng mga tao before nagkasakit din 'yung mom ko after everything happened. It’s just one day after another… I was really praying na maging masaya na siya ulit,” she said.
At the concert of Gary Valenciano at the Araneta Coliseum last week, Padilla was spotted in the audience with renowned architect Conrad Onglao. The two were even seen walking hand in hand at the hallway of the coliseum.
Padilla later on admitted that they have been seeing each other for over a month now.
Asked if she has already met Onglao, Karylle said, “Yeah, of course na-meet ko na si Tito Conrad. I think isa ako sa mga unang naka-meet sa kanya. Hindi ko naman siyempre palalagpasin 'yung opportunity and duty ko as a daughter na maging guwardiya kahit papaano.”
Karylle said she is hoping her mom’s happiness would last.
“Okay naman, I think we’ll just leave it like that. She’s happy, we’re happy. We’re having lots of lunches and dinner, so I’m really happy for her,” she said.
