Kathryn Bernardo appreciates the fact that Daniel Padilla took the lead in admitting that they are exclusively dating each other.
“Siyempre masaya… ang hirap kasi kapag yung girl ang nagsasalita, e,” said Kathryn during the July 10 endorsement launch of Air Optix colored contact lenses held at Robinsons Manila.
She added, “Yun kasi yung bagay na hindi namin pinag-uusapan, na parang automatic na lang.
“Exclusive kami para sa isa’t isa, parang hindi ka na open kapag aayain ka lumabas ng iba or anything.
“It’s hard to tell kung ano talaga ang real label, but sabi namin, yun ang right label to use: exclusive for each other.”
It will be recalled that last week, Daniel told ABS-CBN reporter Marie Lozano that he and Kathryn have not yet put a label on their relationship. “Wala pa muna. Basta exclusive kami.”

What did she initially feel when Daniel finally spoke up about the real score between the two of them?
“Actually, more of sa mga tao yun para hindi na nila kami tanungin kung ano kami ni DJ [Daniel’s nickname].
“So, ayun, at least ngayon alam na nila kung saan kami nanggagaling, ano ang setup namin.”
The 20-year-old Kapamilya actress pointed out, “Yung pagsabi namin ni DJ na exclusive kami sa isa’t isa, it’s all about timing, e.
“Kung wala siya sa perfect timing, hindi siya magpu-fall into place.”
GROWING OLD WITH DANIEL? A week ago, Kathryn posted her photo with Daniel in Barcelona.
The KathNiel loveteam was in Spain at that time to shoot their upcoming movie directed by Olivia Lamasan.
In the picture, Kathryn and Daniel are walking down a street while an older couple could be seen in the background. The young actress provided the caption: “what a coincidence.”
She believes this photo captures the fortuitous events that happened to KathNiel in the past.
“Di ba, yung nangyari sa amin ni DJ, unplanned siya? Right timing talaga.
“Feeling ko, isa siyang malaking coincidence.”
The photo also reminds Kathryn of a song that reflects her special bond with Daniel.
“Yung isang meaning naman, may dalawang matanda.
“Di ba, favorite song namin ang ‘Grow Old With You.’
“Nasaktuhan lang. Nung ine-edit ko, nasaktuhan lang kaya yun ang nilagay kong caption.”
