During Kathryn Bernardo’s belated 20th birthday celebration with her KB Buddies fans held last April 12, the Kapamilya actress was accompanied by her parents and other family members. Her mother, whom people affectionately call Mommy Min, was game enough to talk to Push.com.ph about how the popular teen star is doing. “Same pa rin naman (relationship namin). Ganun pa din ako sa kanila (ni Daniel Padilla),” she shared.
Push asked if she was finally allowing Kathryn to travel abroad by herself now that she is 20 and will be filming most of the scenes of her upcoming Star Cinema film in Barcelona, Spain. "Hindi. Kasama ako dun. Eh kahit na ba 20 na siya I’m with her. Kasama ako lagi. Habang hindi kami nag-aaway kasama ako (laughs),” she said. The loving mom said that she has also built a close relationship with DJ since he started working with Kath in Princess and I. DJ has always been vocal about Mommy Min being like a second mom to him which is why he respects her and her daughter.
During a recent trip to Bangkok, Mommy Min said she and her family were able to bond more with Kathryn for an entire day. "Trabaho yun. Shooting yun ng isang commercial. Pictorial yun. Supposed to be morning yung flight namin pero pinagawa naming gabi para may magawa naman siya dun,” she recalled.
As part of one of the most popular love teams in the country, Kathryn has managed to maintain her wholesome and humble image. Mommy Min shared with Push how she has guided her youngest daughter to be down-to-earth all these years. "Paano ko ba ito sasabihin? Basta kailangan pag nasa bahay siya hindi siya artista. Ordinary anak lang siya na kasama siya nung apat. And then kung may time kami, kakain at lalabas. Ganun lang,” she explained.
