Aljur Abrenica not closing doors on rekindling romance with Kylie Padilla
Aljur Abrenica opened up about his co-parenting setup with Kylie Padilla, saying that the actress will always have a place in his heart despite their separation.
Abrenica talked about this in an interview with entertainment writer Aster Amoyo, as seen in a vlog on her YouTube channel on Friday, Nov. 18.
“Sa co-parenting kami nagfo-focus ngayon kasi iisipin niyo na ‘yung mga bata e. Almost everyday nag-uusap kami,” he said. “Kahit hiwalay kami, we’re still learning from each other how to be good parents.”
(We are focusing on our co-parenting setup because our kids are all that we think about. We talk almost everyday. Even when we have separated, we’re still learning from each other how to be good parents.)
While Abrenica opted not to answer if he still has love left for Padilla, the actor noted that she is already a “part of himself.”
“Hindi naman siya mawawala [sa puso ko]. Isang dekada kami magkasama, part of myself is siya na e,” he disclosed. “Hindi ko alam kung paano ko mapu-put into words pero hindi siya mawawala do’n.”
(She will always be in my heart. We had been together for a decade, she is already a part of myself. I do not know how to put it into words but she will always be [in my heart].)
Abrenica then expressed appreciation to their fans who still support the actors despite their split, but he also appealed to them to respect his and Padilla’s current situation.
“Naa-appreciate ko ang lahat, thank you. Even though ‘yung iba nagagalit and may sinasabi sa aking masama, I appreciate that kasi naramdaman ko ‘yung sakit nila,” he stated. “Nasaktan din naman ako, nasaktan kaming dalawa.”
(I appreciate them all, thank you. Even though some of them are angry and speak ill of me, I appreciate that because I feel their pain. I was also hurt, the two of us got hurt.)
“Respeto na lang kung ano ‘yung pinagdadaanan namin. Hindi naman talaga alam ng lahat kung ano talaga ‘yung nangyari,” he added. (Just respect whatever we’re going through now. No one really knows what really happened.)
Amoyo then followed up and asked, “But you’re not closing your doors to the possibility [of reconciliation]?” to which he replied, “May nagsarado ba?” (Did someone close it?)
“‘Yung iba nga sinasabi nila wala na talaga pero meron pa, ‘di ba? Wala namang nakakaalam kung anong mangyayari,” he continued. “Hindi ko nga alam na maghihiwalay kami e. Hindi ko nga alam na magkakaanak kami, ‘di ba?”
(A lot of people say that there’s really no chance of getting back together when there is, right? No one knows what could happen. I never even knew that we would break up, that we would have kids, right?)
Abrenica and Padilla’s separation was confirmed to the public in 2021 by her dad, actor-turned-politician Robin Padilla, who said that the breakup was due to a supposed third party.
At that time, Abrenica was being linked to actress AJ Raval. While Raval had admitted that she and Abrenica were in the process of “getting to know each other,” she denied that she’s the reason behind the split.
