Daniel Padilla Remains Mum About Religion Issue With Kathryn BernardoTeen royalties Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo are faced with a conundrum--on one hand, they want to be together but on the other hand, Kathryn is a member of Iglesia Ni Cristo while Daniel is a Catholic.
It is important for INC for their members to only enter into a relationship with someone from INC as well.
Daniel doesn't want to comment about it. Instead, he said that right now if their religion said they cannot be together, then so be it. Although religion will never be an issue to him, Daniel said the time will come that they will be able to decide already.
Kathryn earlier said that although Daniel is special to her, their different religions prevent her from entering into a committed relationship with him.
Kathryn spent her 18th birthday on March 26, but her debut will take place on March 28. Daniel gave her a dog for her birthday.
She would have wanted a golden retriever, but an endorsement already gave her one, so Daniel had to choose a different breed.
At first, he joked that he won't buy the dog anymore, but Kathryn cried and thought about how the dog would feel if it already expected to find a new home. Daniel, in the end, relented to the teen queen's wishes.
In truth, Daniel can date other girls or pursue others. But he doesn't see the point of going after another girl when he has already promised himself to another. "Hindi gawain ng matinong lalaki yun."
How about if someone will attempt to court Kathryn? It's okay, Daniel said, but he's telling that guy now that nothing will happen with his plan. "Binabakuran ko? Matagal na, matagal na rin nila itong maririnig."
He doesn't need to wait for Kathryn because he doesn't even feel like he's waiting since he gets to spend time with her. Daniel doesn't want to force the young actress into a relationship she's not ready for.
"Kasi pag minamadali ang mga bagay, maraming mga hindi magandang nangyayari."
Meanwhile, Daniel is gearing up for his second concert at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum on April 30. His first concert last 2013 was a big hit.
Daniel said he's happy to see his sponsors and supporters again. Even the relatives he does not usually see, he sees during his concerts.
This 2014 concert will be sexier than the first one. Daniel was quick to point out, however, that he is not the sexy one, but his songs are.
"Maganda yung una, mas gagandahan ko, gagalingan ko na lang." He advised his fans not to expect too much from his concert, so that they won't get hurt when they don't get what they want from the second concert.
One of his special guests will be Rico Blanco. The teen king said he's a big fan of the singer-composer. During the rehearsal, he simply watches Rico. The composer also helps Daniel with his singing.
