“Okay na kami. Thank God.”
That’s what Kylie Padilla said when her dad Robin asked her about her estranged husband Aljur Abrenica. In a vlog dubbed “The Conversation We Never Had,” the actress openly talked about the matter, saying that what matters most is that they are both “okay” for their kids.
Does she still feel pain after everything that happened between her and Abrenica? “To be honest, ang mahirap lang talaga dun sa nangyari sa amin is never ko nang mae-enjoy yung pinapanood ko silang naglalaro. Yun lang, kasi alam ko nung dumating na talaga yung time na hindi na siya nagwo-work,” she told her dad.
But looking at how things eventually turned out, “mas maganda yung nangyari ngayon kasi hindi na kami toxic,” the actress explained, adding that she’s happier now.
“So wala na talagang pag-asa?” the veteran actor star asked.
“No, no. It’s best for what it is now kasi tinitignan ko rin in the future, maging friends kami talaga. Ngayon kasi, syempre after ng nangyari, we’re friends, pero there’s a distance. Dumidistansiya na ako kasi syempre, nagulat ako pero nga bilang nanay ng mga anak ko, I have to be civil, try to be the better person, mas mature na tao,” she replied.

After all, the Kapuso star is happy that Abrenica is still involved in their children’s lives. “Buo pa rin yung relasyon nila bilang mag-tatay so happy na ako,” she said. “Siyempre, on my side, may guilt eh, kasi sorry, yun lang, pero ready na akong mag-move forward talaga.”
“Hanggang saan ba yung kaya ko bilang babae na mag-isa lang ako? So I’m okay,” she declared.
Padilla confirmed his daughter’s breakup with Abrenica in July. The issue further became a hot topic online due to cryptic posts shared by both sides on their social media accounts. Actress AJ Raval later revealed that she has been going out with Abrenica, causing netizens to speculate that she was the reason for their split—a claim that Raval firmly denied.
