Padilla has been a long-time supporter of the President and Go and has always been vocal about this. In the recent May elections, Padilla graced a number of events for Go’s senatorial bid.
Rodriguez threw Padilla a surprise birthday party because she, and their daughter Maria Isabella, will not be able to celebrate with him during his birthday in November, as per her Instagram post yesterday, Aug. 10. Ryan Arcadio/JB
