At the first few months of 2019, Karla Estrada shared an interesting fact about her son, Daniel Padilla, and his interaction and closeness to his uncle, Robin Padilla.
The Magandang Buhay host recalled that Robin wholeheartedly gave Daniel the budget to acquire his first car upon entering showbiz.
In a conversation with the actor, his wife Mariel Rodriguez, and Mariel’s mom April, Karla stated that Robin was the one that gave her son his first car.
“Si Robin ang unang nagbigay ng sasakyan kay Daniel. Starex na binili ko…”
She added that Robin didn’t hand them a check or anything. Just a simple handwriting.
“Walang check si Robin binigay, sulat-kamay lang. ‘Tapos winithdraw ko yung PHP600,000 para ibili na yung sasakyan ni Daniel kasi sabi ko [kay Robin], ‘Tol, magsisimula na pamangkin mo [sa showbiz].'”
Daniel started his showbiz career in 2010 and climbed up to the top to become one of the industry’s most well-known celebrities.
Robin is the younger brother of Daniel’s father, Rommel Padilla. He shared the conversation through his Instagram Live.

In the November 21 episode of Magandang Buhay, Daniel Padilla surprised his mom, Karla Estrada, a road trip with his siblings for her 44th birthday.
The young actor asked what her plans are and she shared that she wants to finish everything before she turns 50.
“Ang plano ko ay matapos na lahat before 50 para naman makapagpahinga naman ako by 50. But we’ll never know kung hanggang kailan tayo puwedeng kumilos. Everything is planned at the moment, gusto ko lang matapos na lahat, maplantsa.”
As the trip goes on, one of the questions asked was how will they describe their family. Karla answered that they are happy and successful, while Daniel answered that it’s “unorthodox”.
“Unorthodox. Mahirap i-explain, but that’s it. The family is unorthodox, but yes, it’s a joyful and happy family.”
Karla shared that the biggest lesson that she learned from the show is stop judging other people based on the rumors that you hear, which Daniel then agreed.
“Yeah, at kung may narinig kang ganun, you save them. I mean, kung alam mo na hindi siya ganun… Tama ‘yon, never judge people. Di ba nga ang gusto mo ay world peace?
“Alam mo ang ano sa atin, Ma, tayong mga tao ay masyado na tayong busy sa ating personal na buhay na hindi na natin napapansin, pinakikialaman ang buhay ng iba minsan. Okay naman ‘yon kasi napakahirap naman talaga ng buhay, so minsan ang tao hindi mo naman masisisi. Pero kailangan, I think, kailangan natin ng affection at konting paki sa kapwa natin. Ang kapwa mo is ikaw din ‘yon. I think kailangan nating simulan sa sarili natin. Kasi hindi na panahon ngayon para isisi natin sa iba.
“Dapat sa atin [manggaling], kahit sa maliit na paraan. Kami, sinisimulan natin sa bahay. Pero totoo ‘yon, kailangan nating i-save ang mundo natin. It really needs changing talaga. We want change, but do we really want to change? You want change, but do you really move?”
When Karla asked her son about the dreams that he has yet to achieve, he answered that he hopes to “wake up to a better world“.
