The popular young love team known as KathNiel, composed of cutie Kathryn Bernardo and hottie Daniel Padilla, credited their solid fan base as the biggest reason for their nine-year-old successful partnership.
Just recently, the reel-turned-real couple shared a short clip video extending their gratitude to followers for their love and support through the years.
“Happy 9th anniversary. Nakakatuwang isipin na siyam na taon na tayong magkakasama. Maraming maraming salamat at hanggang ngayon ay nandiyan pa rin kayo kasama namin ni Kathryn na nagmamahal, pumo-protekta, at siyempre ‘yung iba sa inyo mga naging kaibigan na rin namin. So, thank you very much,” said Daniel on a video uploaded by his mother Karla as with Min, Kathryn’s mom.
“Thank you kasi karamihan sa inyo kasabay namin tumanda. ‘Yung iba nagka-pamilya na, nagkaanak na, pero still, grabe pa rin ‘yung suporta niyo at patuloy na dumadami ‘yung nagiging parte ng pamilya natin. So paulit ulit naming sinasabi pero maraming maraming salamat. Lahat ng na-accomplish namin ni DJ ngayon, alam niyo na kasama niyo doon. ‘Yung journey natin na ‘to, hindi biro ‘yung mga pinagdaanan natin but that made us all stronger,” Kathryn added.
She aired hope their supporters will be with them forever.
“So, sana marami pa tayong magawa. Sana nandiyan lang kayo parati. Konting hintay lang kasi mahirap sa atin lahat itong taon na ‘to, pero babangon din tayo lahat na magkakasama. Maraming salamat sa hindi niyo pag-iwan sa aming dalawa ni DJ,” she maintained.
The two first worked together through the youth-oriented show “Growing Up” in 2011 and since then they have conquered TV and movies.
Meanwhile, it was only two years ago when the two finally confirmed their relationship.
Last May, Kathryn’s mother also shared a glimpse of how the young actors celebrated their eighth anniversary as a couple amid lockdown.
