In the grand media launch for their upcoming movie titled “The Hows of Us”, Kathryn and Daniel (most commonly known as KathNiel) affirmed what the public has suspected all along – that they are reel to real lovers.
But like any other couple, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla’s relationship is not always smooth sailing.
Since Director Cathy Garcia-Molina said that “The Hows of Us” is a slice of life-type story, someone asked Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, “In your relationship off-camera, was there a time that you had to save it? And what did you do to save it?”
Kathryn Bernardo answered:
Yes, may nangyari talaga. Because sa isa namang relationship, hindi yan smooth parati, di ba? Meron talagang mga taon or mga panahon na medyo umaano.
Pero, how did we save it? Kasi gusto namin. And for me, choice nyo yan parating dalawa, kung tutuloy pa ba? Or ilalaban pa ba? Ganyan… and yeah, yun yong pinili namin. And I think I made the right choice. Yes.
For me naman kasi sa isang relationship, kahit gano natin kagusto natin syang maging perfect, hindi sya mangyayari. Basta ang importante dito yung may natutunan ka, sabay kayo mag gro grow and move on. And yun yong pinili namin ni DJ.
Yes, something like that happened. Because in a relationship, it’s not always smooth, right? There are really years or times when it’s like…(Kathryn makes a sign to mean going down).
But how did we save it? Because we want to. And for me, that’s always a choice for the two of you, if you want to continue? Or will you fight for it? Yeah, that’s what we chose. And I think I made the right choice. Yes (responding to some applause).
For me, no matter how much we want a relationship to be perfect, it will never happen. What’s important is you learn something, you grow up together and move on. And that’s what DJ (Daniel Padilla’s nickname) and I chose.
Daniel Padilla added his take on Kathryn Bernardo’s answer:
Maraming beses na, tinanong ko kung gusto mo pa ba? Or kaya mo pa ba ‘to?
Ako, lagi akong bumabalik, bakit nga ba? Sa simula ng lahat ng ‘to, bakit ko nga ba minahal ang taong ‘to?
Malamang nag-aaway kayo ngayon pero siyempre kailangan mo tingnan yung mas malalim ngayon sa problema na ito, alam mo yun? Kasi, maaaring nagkakaproblema lang tayo ngayon, pero saan ba tayo nanggaling at nasaan na ba tayo ngayon?
A lot of times I asked, do you still want this? Or, can you still handle this?
Me, I always come back, but why? From the very start of all this, why did I love this person?
You might be fighting now, but of course, you need to see deeper than the present problem, you know? Because it’s possible we might be having a problem today, but where did we come from and where are we going?
Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla admitted that they actually had dramatic confrontations in real life. Daniel said that some of the dramatic scenes in “The Hows of Us” were based on their life as a young couple.
Unlike in the movie “The Hows of Us” though, Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo didn’t have a lover’s quarrel in the rain.

Like in their previous presscons, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla were very sweet with each other. Daniel was casually touching the legs or knees of Kathryn every now and then, while he and his partner were explaining about their more mature roles as Primo and George in their latest movie, “The Hows of Us”.
Now that they have confirmed their relationship, will Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo’s sweetness be seen as part of “The Hows of Us” movie promotion? Or as a normal expression of Daniel and Kathryn’s love for each other?
