Fans of reel-to-real couple Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla won’t have to wait long to see the couple tie the knot, even if it’s just for an upcoming digital sitcom (situational comedy).
After a series of teasers showing wedding gowns and invitations from the couple’s respective mothers caused an uproar on social media, netizens were also quick to catch that the “wedding” posts were related to the KathNiel love team’s comeback—following the heated House hearings on ABS-CBN’s franchise to operate that ended in the Kapamilya network’s losing its broadcast frequencies.
Kathryn and Daniel were among the Kapamilya stars who broke their silence over the issue and vocally supported the media giant’s fight to renew its franchise.
On 25 September, Mommy Min (Kathryn’s mother) posted on Instagram a closeup photo of a wedding gown with a wedding ring between the letters “k” and “n” in the caption.
And then Daniel’s mom Karla Estrada posted a white wedding invite with the same caption.
A similar teaser was posted by KathNiel’s close friend, Juan Miguel Severo, with a picture of a crucifix from a church.
Likewise, Star Music head Roxy Liquigan posted a caption of the now-famous “k” and “n” with a wedding ring.
There were speculations that the posts were about Karla’s own wedding, based on the comments her friends in the industry—Vina Morales, Jaya and Ruffa Gutierrez—wrote on Karla’s wedding invitation post.
It was not the first time Karla, or “Queen Mother” posted the word “engaged” on her Instagram, but now the caption had blue and black hearts replacing “k” and “n,” followed by the word “soon.”
In any case, KathNiel fans are stoked to see the couple back on the screen again—after work on their film After Forever had to stop due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The KathNiel love team was last seen on the big screen in the 2018 blockbuster film The Hows of Us. Before that, the couple appeared in Can’t Help Falling In Love, Barcelona: A Love Untold, Crazy Beautiful You and the film adaptation of the hit series She’s Dating the Gangster.
They were first paired the in 2011 teen drama Growing Up as the characters Ella Dimalanta and Patrick Rivero.
As for a real wedding, KathNiel have not exacly been denying it. In a past interview, the couple revealed that they want a beach wedding.
They celebrated their eighth year as real-life sweethearts last May.
