Days after his shocking remark during the Himig Handog award’s night, Daniel Padilla clarified that he was not serious about what he said.
The special performer of this year’s Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs Finals Night on Sunday was asked by host Robi Domingo to finish the sentence: “Ngayong 21 nako pwede nakong mag…”
To which the Teen King replied with “Mag-anak.” That response shocked the crowd, which led to a loud guffaw.
Teen Queen Kathryn Bernardo who was also a host during Himig Handog and was with Daniel during the interview said, “Joke lang ‘yun!”
Daniel for his part explained, “Gusto ko lang makuha ang mga tao na nanoood ng ibang sagot. Kasi nakakasawa rin. So bigyan natin sila na ikaka-shock nila.”
But he added, “Pero gusto kong mag-anak pero hindi pa ngayon.”
Kathryn, as well as ABS-CBN bosses, friends, and Daniel’s family were gathered on Tuesday, on the actual day of his 21st birthday, for a surprise party organized by DJ’s mom Karla Estrada.
But it was Kathryn who was Karla’s accomplice in getting Daniel to go to the surprise venue of his Golden State Warriors-inspired party.
“Actually mahirap kasi nga diba sinurprise namin siya yesterday, baka kapag ngayon halata na. Pero buti nag-work siya. Sinabi ko lang, ‘Bal since yesterday with friends ngayon dinner na lang tayo, private dinner. Trip ko lang,’” Kathryn shared.
She continued, “Sabi ko pa ‘Wag kang iiyak ha!’ Ganon pako. Tapos pinilit ko siyang isuot ang blindfold kasi ‘yun ang bilin sakin kasi daw may makikita siya. Ang importante andito ‘yung mga importanteng tao.”
Asked what her birthday wish was for her rumored boyfriend, she said. “Marami kapag para sa kanya siguro kulang ang isang papel. Pero ang number one siguro parati siyang masaya sa ginagawa niya. Iba kasi kapag pure happiness eh. Alam mo si DJ kapag masaya siya sa ginagawa niya or napipilitan siya. Basta sana ganon, gusto ko happy lang siya.”
Kathryn and Daniel are set to fly to Spain soon to start filming their newest film. In fact, the movie’s crew composed of director Olivia Lamasan and screenwriter Carmi Raymundo already flew out this weekend.
