As expected, Daniel Padilla’s party was a mix of your favorite celebrities as well as close friends and family of the birthday boy. But let’s be honest, there is only one person’s presence that truly matters, and she did not disappoint.
For the past months, Kathryn Bernardo has been based in Hong Kong shooting for her upcoming movie titled “Hello, Love, Goodbye.” During Daniel’s guest appearance on iWant ASAP, he made some bold and cute statements about how he feels regarding their new long-distance relationship. “Nasisiraan na ako ng bait dito,” was his exact words. When asked at the time about the couple’s plans for his birthday, “hindi naman papayag ‘yun [Kathryn] nang wala siya,” was his response.
Since then, Daniel did the sweetest thing by actually surprising her in Hong Kong! Director Peewee Gonzales shared the moment with everyone through Instagram. In the clip, Kathryn was at a loss for words upon seeing Daniel. She embraced him tightly, as if she would never let go.
So, we guess Daniel should have expected that she would return the favor by surprising him too. In an IG video uploaded by a KathNiel fan account, Kathryn was shown sneaking into the venue then hugging Daniel from behind and saying, “happy birthday”. The look of shock on him was priceless. As much as we would want them to always be together, these kinds of surprises are what every fan live for.
Those hugs must be the and tightest ones they have had. The best part for us is that their reunion was caught on camera! Check out these stolen moments of Daniel and Kathryn at the birthday bash in this gallery!
