Kathryn Bernardo took to social media to share a throwback photo of herself with her longtime boyfriend Daniel Padilla taken 11 years ago.
She shared the photo on Instagram Stories on Tuesday, August 24. In its caption, Kathryn wrote: "My crush since 2011."
She then wrote "Hi" and tagged Daniel in her post.
Kathryn's post comes just a week before she and Daniel celebrate their 10th anniversary as a love team.
The two, or “KathNiel” as their onscreen tandem is known to their fans, first worked together in 2011 in the weekly youth-oriented series Growing Up where as early as that time, Daniel had already been candid about his admiration for Kathryn.
In 2018, the two finally confirmed their relationship, ending years of speculation on the real score between them. At the time, they had been together for more than five years.
Previously, Daniel said he doesn't regret dating Kathryn at a young age. The actor was just 17 when they first met, while the actress was only 16 years old.
"Hindi, ah," said Daniel, who is now 26 years old. "Kasi siyempre... I mean, wala namang hinahanap na oras ang pagmamahal eh, 'di ba? Kapag para sa 'yo, para sa 'yo. Kahit maaga man o late. Eh nagkataon na tayo maaga so walang problema. At least maagang naibigay sa akin."
He also said that he doesn't feel like he missed out on anything by being in a long-term relationship with Kathryn.
"Minsan, oo, na-date mo nga pero pagdating ng panahon tulala ka na. Mag-isa ka na. Puro ka na lang date. 'Di ba? Wala naman akong na-miss, eh, dahil bago pa rin maging tayo, ako, nagawa ko na rin naman lahat. Lakwatserong bata naman ako. Eh nung kahit tayong dalawa naman, nagawa ko pa rin 'yung mga gusto ko," he said.
KathNiel was last seen in the digital movie series The House Arrest of Us, which concluded in January.
Just recently, Daniel confirmed that his television project with Kathryn is pushing through. He also revealed that they will be doing a movie soon.
