Actors and real-life couple Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla celebrated their eighth year as a couple last Monday, May 25. Since COVID-19 continues to affect the country, the couple decided to keep the celebration of their anniversary simple.

Despite the lack of posts in their respective social media accounts, Bernardo’s mother Luzviminda showed how the two actors marked the special occasion, through her own Instagram post yesterday, May 26.


Bernardo’s mother said that although the couple was not able to spend the day in their “favorite place,” they were able to make the day worth it by painting cherry blossoms on the wall. Cherry blossom is a widely popular flower in Japan.

Bernardo and Padilla also bonded with the actress’s family, as seen in the series of photos and video posted by Luzviminda.


“They decided to make the day simple lang pero thanks to all fans and friends na nagpadala ng food (but thanks to all the fans and friends who sent food),” Bernardo’s mother said.

The actors were recently subjected to harsh criticism for making their stand and joining an online protest regarding TV network ABS-CBN’s shutdown. KathNiel fans and fellow stars defended them against trolls and bashers using the hashtag #WeBlockAsOne. JB
