Daniel Padilla was given a surprise 21 birthday “salubong” last April 26 from Kathryn Bernardo.
For girls, they usually celebrate with their 18th birthday with a lavish debut party. For guys, their debut is when they reach 21 years old but men don’t really celebrate that. That must be why Kathryn Bernardo organized a surprise “salubong” party for her on-screen partner Daniel Padilla’s 21st birthday.
The two young stars were seen walking while holding hands as they entered the venue for the party.
Kathryn Bernardo explains how she tricked Daniel Padilla into wearing a blindfold to come to his own surprise birthday party. She told him that they would have a “private dinner tapos may chef na magluluto sa harap namin. Sabi niya: ‘Ano yun Japanese no?’ Tapos pinilit ko siya suotin yung blindfold hanggang sa ayan pumayag na siya.” (Private dinner then there would be a chef cooking in front of us. He replied: ‘Is that Japanese?’ Then I convinced him to wear the blindfold until he finally agreed.)
The hosts of the event even commented that Kath did a good job in surprising him: “Talagang nasurprise si DJ, usually di nasusurprise si DJ eh, pero ngayon nasurprise siya.” (DJ was really surprised, usually DJ doesn’t get surprised, but now he was really surprised.)
Here’s Daniel’s big and colorful cake showing all the things that he likes including music, Basketball, and acting.
The whole family was there to attend the birthday bash as well. Min Bernardo, Kathryn’s mom, and Karla Estrada, Daniel’s mom, both looked happy for their children.
Other stars like Vice Ganda and Angelica Panganiban were part of the guestlist along with the executives from ABS-CBN.
That’s not all! Kathryn’s surprise ended with a bang. There was a fireworks display waiting outside for Daniel to see.
The biggest firework we saw, however, was the spark between these two lovebirds as they were hugging each other while watching the lights show.
