There’s no doubt that Kapamilya actor Daniel Padilla is currently one of the most-sought actors of his generation. His irresistible charm paired with his superb acting skills has never failed to make women fall head over heels for him. But despite the success and fame that he’s having now, Daniel actually experienced a rough patch in his life. Just recently, Karla Estrada reminisced how his uncle, Robin Padilla, surprised the young actor by giving him his first car.
According to the “Magandang Buhay” host, the action star was the first to help her son when he was still a newbie in show business. As an award-winning actor himself, Robin has guided Daniel during his first steps in the limelight.
Back in 2010, Daniel was just starting his career by appearing on several tv shows and commercials. Although he came from a family of celebrities, the young actor actually had to work hard for his career. During this time, Robin has decided to give him a special gift as he entered the media industry, his very own Starex van.
After this, the former ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ judge didn’t stop surprising Daniel’s family. In fact, he made it possible for Daniel and his father, Rommel Padilla, to actually see each other for the first time. During this time, Rommel was detained at the New Bilibid Prison in Muntinlupa, while his son was only three years old.
Besides all these, the 49-year-old actor also provided them shelter. After Rommel has finally paid his eight-year sentence, he, Karla, and Daniel temporarily stayed in Robin’s house on Fairview, Quezon City. Because of this, the veteran action star has learned to love his nephew like his own son.
