Apart from her singing and hosting prowess that she’s able to showcase through her stint in the long-running noontime show It’s Showtime as one of its mainstays, what amazes us more about Karylle is her unbreakable and admirable bond with her family in real-life, especially with her mom Zsa Zsa Padilla.
While their closeness and love for one another is apparent every time we see them together on-screen and other events, they’re definitely more tightly bonded off-cam based on the photos and videos of them together, as well as with Karylle’s younger sisters Nicole and Zia, which they post on social media.
And in the previous months, the Divine Diva delighted her followers when she posted a few never-before-seen childhood snaps of Karylle that were captured by her father Dr. Modesto Tatlonghari and collated in a photo album.
In one of her posts, Zsa Zsa fondly recalled that her firstborn gave it to her as a surprise gift in 2000 and went to disclose the fun tale about each picture.
“I remember the first pic vividly. We went to her Lola Thelma’s house in Laguna and she tried her bike. 2nd and third pic, was during our first family trip to the US. The next was a visit to Tita @reallysharoncuneta , Menudo concert where I sang as their front act, Phil Plaza during one of my concerts (with childhood friend, Paula Boon). Your first guesting at Batibot (?) and Kuya Germ’s show where I was a regular host (sic),” she wrote.
Go through this gallery for you to see how cute Karylle was when she was a young girl and to get a glimpse of how she was still able to enjoy her childhood despite already being under the spotlight at a young age!
