Speaking to Push.com.ph, Padilla said her family had a simple celebration at home last May 28 because Dolphy can’t move around too much.
Padilla also reacted on Epi Quizon’s comment that she is doing a great job in take good care of his dad.
“Mababait naman ‘yung mga anak niya (Dolphy) and we’re always meeting, actually. We meet all the time and we talk,” she said.
Padilla added her home is always open to any of Dolphy’s children who wish to see their dad.
“Lahat naman sila concerned sa daddy nila, eh, tsaka sinabi ko naman talaga ang home namin open [to them]. Actually, dalawa ang bunk bed sa tabi ng kanyang bed, so kung meron man siyang anak from abroad o from dito lang na gustong dumalaw can stay overnight,” she said.
Even though she and Dolphy never got married, she said she never felt uncomfortable toward Dolphy’s children.
“I really love them and I really feel part of their family talaga. Sa tagal na rin siguro ng pinagsamahan namin ni Dolphy, kahit hindi kami kasal nararamdaman ko talaga na parang mga anak ko na rin sila,” she said.
Meanwhile, Padilla admitted she is still hoping that Dolphy could be a National Artist.
“Mayroon namang proseso [na sinusunod]. Katulad ng two years ago, naghihintay naman kami ma-nominate siya but he did not make the cut ‘di ba? So sa ngayon talaga anybody can be nominated. So magdadasal na lang kami na sana naman mabigyan siya. Pero kung hindi siya mabigyan, wala kaming magagawa,” she said.
