Daniel Padilla was spotted at his mother Karla Estrada’s 49th birthday celebration held at their home in Quezon City.
In an Instagram story shared by Karla, a video captured the affectionate moment between the mother and son as Daniel arrived. Accompanying Daniel was Luz Bagalacsa, his manager from Star Magic, ABS-CBN’s talent management arm. The family gathered for a group photo, including Daniel’s younger siblings.
However, noticeably absent from the pictures reposted by Karla on her Instagram was Daniel’s girlfriend, Kathryn Bernardo. This absence fueled speculation, given the ongoing rumors linked to the couple’s breakup.
It remains unclear whether Kathryn was present but not captured in any photos, or if she had prior engagements preventing her from attending Karla’s birthday celebration. Despite the uncertainty, most of Karla’s guests included friends like Marjorie Barretto, Ruffa Gutierrez, and Joy Ortega, along with Sunshine Cruz.
Karla’s Instagram post featured Bible verses and inspirational quotes about handling mistakes. She shared solo pictures, a family photo, and birthday messages. Some of the quotes focused on strength, courage, and the understanding that past mistakes are meant to guide, not define.
In the comments section, fans, many of whom identified as KathNiel supporters, eagerly awaited Karla’s response to the circulating intrigues involving Daniel. As of now, Karla has not addressed these issues publicly.
