Fans of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla – collectively known as KathNiel — are in “panic” mode over her mom, Min Bernardo’s, recent social media post, seemingly insinuating something about an engagement.
“May nag-proposed,” it read as posted on Instagram an hour ago.
Min, Kathryn and Daniel are currently in Japan as part of their Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) familiarization trip.
Although Min didn’t tag anyone on the post, commentators hope she’s pertaining to the couple.
“Tita, magkakamini heart attack po ako sa ganyan mo po eh…”
“TITA MIN! NAKAKA GULANTANG. ENLIGHTEN US PLEASE…”
“TOTOO NGA!!!! GRABE TITA MIN!!! ANG SAYAAA SAYAAAA!!”
It was only August last year when Kathryn and Daniel finally confirmed they have been in a relationship for “more than 5 years.”
In Bulletin Entertainment’s last interview with them, the two disclosed it hasn’t been a smooth journey as they’ve had their disagreements like most couples.
“There were times when you’re okay and times when you’re not okay. How did we save our relationship? For me, it is a choice if you will fight for it,” Kathryn said.
“For us, we made a choice. I think I made the right choice. The most important thing is that we learn something every day and we grow together.”
Kathryn thinks the secret to the success of their relationship is the give and take aspect of it.
“It can’t always be just about yourself,” she pointed out. “This is not a fairytale—this is real life.”
Asked if she’s now ready to settle down with Daniel, Kathryn answered: “Not so soon. It’s too early now.”
Later on, the two admitted they are already talking marriage.
“You don’t just jump into it. It would be unfair for you and your partner if you’re not ready to give it (marriage) your all,” she added.
Kathryn and Daniel first work together on the now-defunct youth-oriented show, “Growing Up.”
Prior to the admission, their relationship has long been the subject of speculations among the entertainment media. That’s because every time they’re asked about the “real score,” they would often respond they are “special” to each other.
But for fans, it seems it does not need confirmation anymore. After all, it is undeniable how Daniel and Kathryn are showy when it comes to their real relationship, posting photos and even traveling together most of the time.
