MANILA – Daniel Padilla is now 24 years old, while Kathryn Bernardo is only 23 but the two admitted there are times when they actually talk about their future.
“Wala ka namang ibang pupuntahan. Hindi naman puwedeng hindi mo iniisip 'yun,” Padilla told ABS-CBN News in an interview after both of them renewed their contracts with the Kapamilya network.
The actor said that’s one of the reasons why he and Bernardo keep on working hard while they still can.
“Kaya nga tayo nagtatrabaho, kaya nga tayo pumirma ngayon dahil mayroon tayong kailangang asikasuhin for the future. Kailangan nating gawin na ngayon para sa panahong gusto mo na rumelaks, puwede mo na alagaan ang sarili mo, at siyempre ang partner mo,” he said.
Bernardo echoed this but also noted that they are still young.
“Napag-uusapan naman namin 'yun, 'yung sa future. Pero ngayon kasi, 23 pa lang ako and 24 siya. Tine-take advantage namin habang bata pa na magtrabaho for the future kasi kami rin naman ang magbe-benefit no'n,” she said.
“We are just happy na this company sinu-support kami on- and off-cam. Dadating tayo diyan but now I think it’s too early. Ine-enjoy lang namin,” she added.
It was in 2018 when Bernardo and Padilla finally confirmed being a couple after years of speculation on the status of their relationship.
At that time, Padilla mentioned that they have been together for “more than five years.”
