Before being known as the Queen Mother as soon as her firstborn Daniel Padilla catapulted to stardom and be hailed as the King Of Hearts a few years ago, Karla Estrada, unbeknownst to the younger generations, used to be one of the young promising actresses of the local entertainment scene during the 90s. She has remained active in show business in the previous years, but was shifting from one network to another wherever there’s an offer for her, until she became a mainstay in ABS-CBN.
She’s been a part of various television programs of the Kapamilya Network, and even auditioned in the second season of The Voice Philippines, until she had her breakthrough in the debut season of Your Face Sounds Familiar in 2015 wherein she was able to expose more her talent in singing and forged friendships with her fellow contestants, especially to Jolina Magdangal and Melai Cantiveros who eventually became her co-hosts in Magandang Buhay a year after.
Now that the show’s on its third successful year, we think that another best way to celebrate the special event is by reminiscing three of the most remarkable and heartwarming moments of Momshie Karla through this anniversary feature.
- Tearful recollections about Daddy Raymond
In momshie Karla’s 42nd birthday fete in 2016, her Magandang Buhay family surprised her by letting her loved-ones greet and give their gifts to her personally. Just when everybody thought that it’s going to be purely fun and light since she’s known for her sunny personality, tears poured out that episode as she imparted about the heartbreaks and struggles she went through with her family in her younger years.

She broke down upon the mention of her Daddy Raymond not knowing that she’s still alive after her maternal grandfather told him that she was born dead. She went on to recall the first time they met each other when she was only 18 years old and expressed how grateful she is to him for accepting her, for apologizing to her, and for giving life to her.
Unforgettable road trip with kids Daniel, Magui, JC, Carmela, and Jordan
Her 44th birthday bash was definitely one for the books as she got to celebrate it by embarking on an exciting road trip with her beloved equally beautiful children, which they did for the very first time!
