Kylie Padilla and Aljur Abrenica already called it quits after being in a 10-year relationship and three years as a married couple.
Prior to being married, Padilla is a part of the hit Kapuso series Encantadia where she plays the role of Sang’gre Amihan.
The actress had to choose between her acting career and his estranged husband as she discovered that she was pregnant with her eldest son Alas Joaquin in 2017.
At the time, Padilla chose to leave her role in Encantadia to focus on taking care of her son.
In an exclusive interview with Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho (KMJS), Padilla revealed that she had no regrets about her choice back then even if she and Abrenica have already separated.
“Wala kasi si Alas yung nasa tiyan ko nun, e. I wanted to be a mom,” she said.
She also explained that it was the best time of her relationship with Abrenica.
“Alam mo we we’re so good during that time. Sobrang, yun yung pinaka the best times ng relationship namin. Kasi we’ve been together for 10 years na, married for 3. Pero nun, yung mga time na yun, inalagaan niya talaga ako. Na-appreciate ko siya as a husband and as a person lalo na during those days,” said Padilla.
Despite being separated from her husband, Padilla admitted that she wanted to maintain their friendship for the sake of their children.
“Iniisip ko pa rin yung relationship namin as friends eh. We have kids. We need to co-parent and ayokong maranasan nila na toxic yung parents nila kahit hiwalay na. Kung masa-save ko pa sana yung friendship namin, ta’s tuwing magkikita kami para kunin yung mga bata, okay kami.
“Ayokong tuluyang sirain ko siya o magbatuhan kami. Hindi yun yung gusto kong mangyari. ‘Tsaka hanggang ngayon, kahit tanungin ako ng mga tao, I still want him to be happy. Sana talaga we move forward from this and we both end up happy.
“Ayoko na ng toxic. Pinagdaanan ko na yun when I was younger, alam ko yung pakiramdam. Gusto kong protektahan yung mga anak ko sa ganung set up.
“Huwag nating kalimutan to be parents sa mga anak natin and sana ma-save pa natin yung friendship after this. And kung gusto nating mag-away, whatever, let’s do it in the right place. ‘Wag na sa public. Yun lang ang hinihingi ko, please,” she said.
