MANILA, Philippines – Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo finally speak up on the real score between the two of them.
"Basta exclusive kami sa isa't-isa (We're exclusive)," Daniel told ABS-CBN News' Marie Lozano, who asked about their relationship status.
"'Yun na 'yun. 'Di pupuwedeng may iba (That's it. There can't be anyone else)."
For now, the two said they're not attaching any labels to their relationship status.
When asked if there’s pressure on the two of them to do so, Daniel quipped: "Wala naman. Pero pinepressure kami ng mga tao (None, really. But people are pressuring us)."
“Hindi naman. Parang may hinihintay pa kami na something kaya hindi pa malagyan ng label (Not really, but we feel that we are waiting for something that's why we can't label our relationship).
"Maaga pa sa ngayon. May mga gagawin pa kami and may tamang moment siguro pag sasabihin na namin kung ano man.”
(It's still early for now. We still have so many things to do and there's a right moment for it when we tell whatever it is.)
Kathryn echoed Daniel’s statements: "Kami kasi hindi na namin siya pinaguusapan dahil parang nagkakaintindihan na kami, so depende siya sa situation. But then, sinabi nga ni DJ [Daniel] may hinihintay pa nga siguro kami," she said.
(We really don't talk about it because it's like we have an understanding. But then we are still waiting for something, I guess.)
When asked "if that time comes" when they could say that they are a couple, Daniel said: "Magiging special siya."
He later added, "Para na rin sa mga supporters namin, parang buong buhay eh hinihintay nila iyon, hindi naman natin sila puwedeng pabayaan."
(It will definitely be special. It's also for our supporters who have been waiting it for their whole lives, we cannot really just set them aside.)
The two have been rumored to be in a relationship in the past, but when asked about it, they would often say they are special to each other. (READ: Daniel Padilla, Kathryn Bernardo on relationship status, end of 'Pangako Sa 'Yo')
