Daniel Padilla may be cool and astigin like his uncles, but real fans of the Teen King knows that behind his angas persona is a kind and loving son to his mother, singer-actress Karla Estrada. His closeness to his mother may earn him the “mama’s boy” tag, for sure he doesn't care though, as he just loves his mom so much. He'll actually inspire you to be more showy of your affection towards your mom, too:
1. He worked hard to fulfill his mom’s dreams.
Having gone through tough times at an early age, Daniel worked hard, saving money from his shows and endorsements, and purchased a house as soon as he was financially-capable. The Mediterranean-inspired house is one of Daniel’s promises to his mother, who has long wished to have a house they would call their own. "Itong bahay...kay mama talaga ito," Daniel said in an interview with Rated K.
2. He supports his mother’s passions.
Since Karla’s audition on the Voice of the Philippines back in 2014 up to her own solo concert last April 30, Daniel has been supportive of her through and through. Being a singer himself, Daniel understands her mother's passion down to the last note. In fact, he also likes performing with her, too. Case in point: His DOS concert back in 2014, where they sang "And I Love Her," a popular song by British rock icons The Beatles:
3. He allots time for vacations with his mother.
Even with Daniel’s hectic schedule, he makes sure that he has time to go on vacations with his mother. It may range from a local vacation in Balesin Island or Misibis Bay, to out-of-the-country vacations like their trip to Japan last year. What's important for Daniel is to be able to treat his mother once in a while, and consistently show her how important she is to him.
