Daniel Padilla to Kathryn Bernardo on getting married: ‘Ready na ako’
Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo discussed their plans for their relationship for the next 10 years, particularly whether they are ready to get married.
The reel and real-life couple opened up about their relationship in “2Good2gether,” their reunion special with directors Olivia Lamasan, Cathy Garcia-Molina and Mae Cruz-Alviar. The special premiered on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s YouTube channel yesterday, May 12.
Bernardo and Padilla were asked by the directors how they see themselves as a pair in the next 10 years.
“Ang dami pang mangyayari. Imagine, 36 na ako by then,” Bernardo stated. (Many things could happen. Imagine, I would be 36 by then.)
Garcia-Molina then talked about the possibility of them getting married within the next 10 years.
“‘Pag 10 years? Siyempre, meron na,” the actress said. (In 10 years? Of course, there will be.)
“Meron na. Iyon din. Iyon na ‘yung ultimatum ko. ‘Pag hindi pa ako kinasal… Kathryn, ‘pag ayaw mo pa, ayoko na,” Padilla joked. (There will be. That is it. That is my ultimatum. If I do not get married by then… Kathryn, if you still do not want to, I do not want to anymore.)
Turning serious, the actor explained that he considers marriage the “next chapter” of his and Bernardo’s relationship especially since they have been together as a love team for 10 years.
“Looking forward na rin ako doon,” he admitted. “Kasi ano pa bang ano ko sa buhay ko? Twenty-seven na ako. What’s next sa aming dalawa?” (I’m looking forward to it. Because what do I do with my life? I am already 27 years old. What’s next for the two of us?)
Garcia-Molina interjected, pointing out that 27 is still young. However, Padilla recounted that he and Bernardo were already talking about getting married when they were still teenagers.
“Masyadong mabilis lalo ang panahon, ang bilis talaga. At saka dati pa naman, 16 at 17 years old pa lang kami, pinag-uusapan na namin ‘yan,” he said. “Now, we’re here. What’s the plan after three or two years?”
(Time goes by too fast, really fast. And even before, when we were just 16 and 17 years old, we were already talking about that. Now, we’re here. What’s the plan after three or two years?)
When asked by Cruz-Alviar whether their plans on tying the knot have changed through the years, the couple confessed they initially planned to get married at their current age.
“Nag-mo-move. Dapat 26. Ang bilis pala,” Bernardo said. (It has been moving. Supposedly 26. It apparently goes by fast.)
“Dapat 28, pero hindi pa pala ‘yun. Basta 30, usapan natin. Hindi na ma-mo-move ‘yun,” Padilla quipped. (It was supposed to be at 28, but apparently not yet. But 30, that is our agreement. That will not be moved anymore.)
Bernardo then stressed that both she and Padilla are not yet ready for marriage.
“You can’t say that to me kasi ‘pag marriage, dapat pareho tayong ready. Alam mong hindi pa tayo ready ngayon. Kailangan pa natin aralin ang buhay,” she told Padilla. (You can’t say that to me because for marriage, both of us have to be ready. You know that we are not ready now. We still need to learn about life.)
“Baka ikaw ang hindi pa ready,” Padilla replied. “Ready na ako.” (Maybe you are the one who is not yet ready. I am already ready.) /ra
