MANILA - Rommel Padilla was nowhere to be seen as his son, teen star Daniel Padilla, held his second birthday concert at the Araneta Coliseum last Wednesday.
The concert was attended by Daniel's leading lady and rumored girlfriend Kathryn Bernardo, his mother Karla Estrada, his uncle Robin Padilla, and other family members and showbiz friends.
On Instagram, Robin explained why Rommel was absent at Daniel's "DOS" concert.

"Taken last night at the Heart center hospital. My deepest respect to you my brother kuya rommel, he chose to give away all his complimentary and paid tickets to his Padilla Siblings hungry for the epic concert of the Teen King Daniel Padilla, then he asked me to represent him to the said event because he promised our Dearest Mother that he will be the one to stay with her overnight in the Hospital because every young Padilla is celebrating and the old Padillas are in st peter's funeral home giving respect to our cousin Marie Padilla Fernandez, sister of action king Rudy Padilla Fernandez..You are truly a hero my Kuya Rommel @agentyellow," he wrote.
On Wednesday night, Robin was seen cheering for his nephew, Daniel.
