8 Times KathNiel Showed Us

Why They are

the Perfect Love Team

Moments from Volleyfriends UAAP Volleyball Kick Off SHAD

Looking at KathNiel now, you would not believe that Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla started out awkwardly. The pair have been cast in 2011, and by all accounts, fireworks weren’t exactly exploding then.

But seemingly contrasting personalities can yield such beautiful relationships. KathNiel has been growing strong since their first pairing, and continues to thrill fans everywhere seven years on. Here are some of the reasons why KathNiel could very well be the perfect love team of all time:

First Impressions Don’t Last

It may be hard to believe seeing how they are sweet to each other now, but KathNiel initially didn’t hit it off so well. Kathryn saw Daniel as ‘mayabang, playboy, and a heartbreaker.’ Daniel saw Kathryn as ‘masungit’ and a ‘snob.’ Good thing those impressions did not last! After two weeks of taping together for a TV show, they finally got to talk–and break their assumptions of each other’s personalities.


Baba and Potpot

Pet names are adorable! Daniel calls Kathryn “Baba”, Bicolano for “Mahal”. Kathlyn calls Daniel “Potpot”, which stands for “Payatot”, as Daniel was rail-thin when they first met.


Fashionable Together

Contrasting fashion (one a rocker, the other a certified fashionista) would seem irreconcilable, but somehow these two make it snap-worthy, and we can’t help but be inspired at how this couple make it work whenever they are together!


Thoughtful Gifts to Each Other

What better proof that they are ‘more than friends’ than the thoughtful gifts they give each other? Kathryn gave Daniel a skull bracelet which DJ would always wear whenever he performs. She would also gift Daniel a bass guitar and a painting she made herself. DJ gifted Kathryn a branded bag, as well as giving her surprise candle-lit dinners!

Iconic Hairstyles

Everyone is on the lookout for the latest hairstyles of this couple: Kathryn’s flowing locks (what color would it be in?) and DJ’s adventurous cuts (short or close-cropped?)–both of them would influence salon trends!


Are they or aren’t they?

For the longest time, these two have been teasing everyone about the real status of their relationship. But we would always be left with vague answers. But one thing is for sure: actions do speak louder than words.


Everytime We See These Sweet Moments

But whenever the films aren’t rolling, and in these private moments, they still are very much sweet to each other! Ah, sweet love! Their chemistry is undeniable!


That First Kiss

Fans of every age have been waiting forever to see these two kiss. And FINALLY when that moment came, it melted hearts everywhere and boy, did our hearts flutter!

Like the KathNiel love team, there are combinations that may seem to not go well together in the beginning, but later turn out to be quite the perfect pair.

Just like KFC’s hottest new love team: the Chili Cheese Chicken! It’s KFC Hot & Crispy Chicken dipped in Chili Cheese sauce, perfectly paired with chicken rice, mushroom soup and a drink.
