Daniel Padilla reiterates that he and Kathryn Bernardo are “exclusive for each other.”
For the nth time, the onscreen couple was asked about the status of their relationship during the media launch of their upcoming movie, Can't Help Falling In Love, Thursday, March 30.
Daniel and Kathryn whispered something to each other before the actor answered the question.
He said, “Ma'am, very exclusive po kami, e. Exclusive po kaming dalawa, ma'am. Exclusive po kami sa isa't isa, ma'am.”

In an interview after the presscon proper, Daniel was asked to explain his earlier statement about his relationship with Kathryn.
He jokingly said, “Baka kasi sukang-suka na kayo, e. Sukang-suka na rin kasi ako, e. Okay na yun.
"Kasi, baka kapag sinabi ko pa yun, 'Alam niyo na.' Nakaka-bad trip nga kung iisipin mo. Kaya ko sinabi yun."
TV Patrol reporter Gretchen Fullido clarified to Daniel: “When you say exclusively dating, yun na ba yung 'kayo na' or hindi pa rin 'kayo na'?”
To which, the 21-year-old actor vaguely replied: “'[Exclusive] sa isa't isa, so meaning ganun.'”
Gretchen asked again: “Kayo na?”
Daniel's reply: “Yes.”
After this, he asked the reporters to move on with the interview, “Next, please?”
In another interview, Daniel said that his description of his relationship with Kathryn does not necessarily apply to their showbiz career.
He said, “Exclusive ho kami sa isa't isa, kumbaga, sa personal po naming buhay.
“Pero siyempre, sa trabaho nating ito, hindi naman puwedeng sabihin na ganun lang.
“Darating tayo sa point na magkakaiba rin.
“Pero sa ngayon, huwag na muna nating pag-usapan, kasi mayroon pa naman kaming bagong pelikula ngayon na magkasama.”
SUMMER OF LOVE. Just recently, Kathryn and Daniel went to El Nido, Palawan, to celebrate her 21st birthday.
At the press conference earlier today, the couple said that they consider the Palawan trip as their “best summer” so far.
During their four-day vacation, Daniel said, “Sobrang nag-enjoy si Kathryn.”
“Sa trip namin na yun, sobrang napakasaya lang, ang sarap. It's summer lovin'.”
Kathryn added, “Parang nagkaroon kami ng sariling mundo doon kasi may mga places na walang signal.
“Tapos nag-arrange lang ng dinner sa sandbar. Nanonood lang kami ng stars kapag gabi, watching the sunset.
“Sobrang simple lang talaga na mga bagay, [dahil] sobrang mababaw akong na tao, sobrang napasaya ako.
“Parang after all of the hardwork, before my birthday, parang naka-recharge ako sa four days na 'yon.
“The best birthday ever.”
Kathryn also expressed her appreciation to Daniel, who did everything for her in their trip.
“Gumigising siya nang maaga!” Kathryn excitedly said.
“Ginigising namin siya ng 7 A.M. kasi kailangang gumising nang maaga.
“Kasi, mas ano nila na kapag mag-i-snorkel ka, dapat ganitong oras.
"Kung pupunta ka sa mga lagoon, dapat first thing in the morning, ganun ang gagawin mo.
“So, malaking adventure ito sa amin. Lahat ng gusto kong gawin, nagawa.”
NO BIRTHDAY GIFT? Although going in an out-of-town-trip with Daniel is already enough for Kathryn, she was still asked what gift she received from him.
Daniel grabbed the mic and answered for Kathryn: “Wala siyang masagot kasi wala akong regalo, e.”
Then, he explained, “Yung regalo ko sa kanya, hindi naman materyal na bagay, para maiba naman.
"Mas more on doon sa effort and sa pag-alaga ko sa kanya sa El Nido.
"At siyempre, yung pagmamahal nandoon. Yung ang bagay na di mo maibibigay, e.”
But Daniel was quick to say that he would still buy Kathryn a birthday gift.
“Siyempre, kailangan meron din. Kasunod pa lang,” he quipped.
