Kylie Padilla broke her silence after her fiance Aljur Abrenica received backlash from netizens when he said that Kylie’s father Robin Padilla has not yet seen their son Alas Joaquin.
In an interview with PEP, the actress echoed Aljur’s statement and said that they went to his house but Robin wasn’t there.
“Ngayon na nandiyan na si Alas, di ba, siyempre hindi naman ako… nababasa ko lahat ng sinasabi ng tao. And I think, masyado nang matagal na tahimik ako. At saka hindi lang naman si Papa at si AJ yung nandito sa sitwasyon na ‘to, nandito rin ako, di ba?” she said.
Kylie said her father wants them to get married first but she is not yet ready.
'Yung kasal kasi, I came from a broken family," she said, adding: "At alam kong kaming dalawa ni AJ, marami pa kaming kailangang ayusin."
“At ayoko lang 'yung napilit kami para lang ma-please yung mga tao or, I’m sorry, para maging okay si Papa. Pero kaya kong tiisin 'yun. Kasi alam ko sa sarili ko na hindi pa kami handa, hindi pa talaga," she added.
Despite this, the actress mentioned that her father is suppprtive of her even during her labor. She gave birth to Alas last August.
“Si Papa naman, hindi naman siya tumigil, e, sa kaka-reach out. Palagi naman niya ako kinakamusta kahit hindi pa lumalabas si Alas. 'Kamusta, anak? Nahirapan ka ba? Kumakain ka ba?' Ganyan," she said.
