This year is really proving to be another banner year for Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla with their show La Luna Sangre leading in the ratings game as well as being named the cover of this year’s Yes! 100 Most Beautiful Stars special issue. Although it is the first time for DJ to be chosen, Kath said it is still a special moment for the both of them. “Actually hindi ko alam na kami yung cover. Akala ko lang maraming layouts for the love team siguro pero hindi ko alam na cover yun and then nung patapos na dun ko lang nalaman na cover nga siya. Hindi ko nga alam na puwedeng umulit kaya nung malaman ko na cover ulit this time with DJ sobrang honored ko and very thankful sa Yes! family ko kasi kami ang napili nila. Ma-include ka lang sa mga most beautiful stars isang karangalan na para sa aming mga artista. What more pa pag maging cover,” she shared during the Yes! 100 Most Beautiful presscon held last July 11 in Quezon City.
The couple also enjoyed their shoot so much that they count it as one of their favorite cover shoots of all time. “During the shoot napansin ko naman na na-enjoy namin pareho kasi makikita niyo naman kapag nakita niyo yung mga layouts namin, iba-ibang looks yun na personally yun yung gusto namin gawin for a shoot so nag-enjoy kaming dalawa gawin yun and also si Mark Nicdao yung nag-picture so pinaglaruan talaga namin yung mga layout,” she added.
If their photos inside the special magazine issue are any indication, love is indeed in the air when these two are around. And even though they have yet to formally announce they are a couple, DJ said there is no need for it. “Kitang kita naman na. Parang ano pa bang kailangan sabihin? Wala na. Hindi na kailangan magsalita pa. Masyado nang klaro yung mensahe na ipinaparating namin,” he said.
Kath said they want to keep the more personal details of their relationship private. “Kasi public figures kami, so parang lahat naman, alam na ng tao. Very private ako na tao, so may mga bagay na ayokong ibigay lahat ng details. Ayoko na i-explain. Basta bahala na kung anong isipin, pero yun ang importante sa akin,” she explained.
Six years strong and DJ admitted it doesn’t take much to keep the spark to their relationship alive. “Paano ko siya pakiligin? Inaasar ko lang siya (laughs). Bina-bad trip ko lang siya. Ganun lang ang kulitan namin. Bad-trip-an lang kami ng bad-tripan. Parang may something lang lagi,” he said.
Obviously used to her leading man’s sense of humor already, the La Luna Sangre star said she just enjoys their time together on and off the set. “Alam namin yung timpla ng isa’t isa. Magkaibang-magkaiba kami ni DJ off-cam pero pag magkasama kami, nag-ble-blend pa rin kami. Siguro yun yung pinaka-secret dun is huwag kang magtago sa mga tao. Kasi kung ano yung nakikita nila sa camera, ganun din kami kakulit off-cam,” she admitted.
