Daniel Padilla's big role in Kathryn Bernardo's debut

Daniel Padilla shared that he is Kathryn Bernardo's escort in her debut next month, even as he admits his busy schedule has kept him from preparing her birthday gift.

“Ngayon hindi pa ako makapagisip dahil ang busy namin ni Kathryn. Pero after ng show, paghahandaan ko iyon," Daniel said at the thanksgiving press conference of "Got to Believe" on Tuesday, February 25.

What gift does Kathryn want him to give her on her birthday (March 26)?

"Wala naman. Sabi nga niya, kahit huwag na. (Laughs). Basta after (the show), pag-iisipan ko iyon," Daniel replied.

No pressure

Despite speculations that they are already a couple, Daniel claims he and Kathryn are still in the "MU" stage. He doesn't want to pressure Kathryn to be his girlfriend and wants her to  enjoy and explore other things as a single teenager.

Explore pa niya yung mga gusto niyang gawin kasi kapag nagka-boyfriend ka na, marami ka ng pwedeng pagbawalan. So, enjoy ka lang, relax ka lang."

Daniel and Kathryn will not kiss in  the finale episode of "Got to Believe"  on March 7.  But Katrhyn is his first choice if ever he has his first onscreen kiss for other projects.

"Sa haba ng pinagsamahan namin, kung sa iba lang mapupunta, bad trip naman iyon," he said in jest.

While he knows many teenagers look up to him, Daniel doesn't pressure himself into putting his best foot forward all the time.

‘Happy lang’

"Mas gusto ko maging happy na lang."

Daniel is grateful to fans for accepting the real him.

"Ako naman minahal nila ako kung ano yung dati pang ako. Hindi ako natatakot kung anong sasabihin nila dahil alam mo rin naman sa sarili mo kung mali yung ginagawa mo masyado di ba?"

He added that he’s actually a nice guy, but his playful nature is sometimes misunderstood.

"Hindi naman ako masamang tao. Makulit lang talaga ako. Pero nagustuhan nila ako kung ano ako dati. So, swerte talaga ako sa kanila."
