Karla Estrada is the mother of famous young celebrity Daniel Padilla to Rommel Padilla. Her career started in the late German Moreno’s television show “That’s Entertainment” after being “discovered” by a talent manager in a random music hub in Quezon City. Raised in Tacloban, Karla’s father left after being deceived that she died after birth. In 2016, after years of searching, Karla finally met her father who apologized for all of his shortcomings to his daughter. Despite all the hardships she had to deal with by herself, Karla is known to be a mother who nurtured four children with the best of her abilities. Her story of success is indeed a testament that there is brightness at the end of the tunnel.
It can be recalled that Karla was spotted with her rumored boyfriend last August in an event at District 8 Manila. Karla revealed that her children have always been supportive to her love life, “Yung mga anak ko ever since supportive sila kasi never naman ako ‘yung talagang nagkakalat, ‘di ba? I’m very private naman with my love life.” The famous Magandang Buhay show host opts to keep her love life private.
But love is too beautiful to hide. Just recently, Karla’s rumored boyfriend appeared as a special guest in her morning talk show, “Magandang Buhay”, where she and him were interviewed by their co-hosts Melai Cantiveros and Jolina Magdangal. The forty four year old actress revealed how nervous she felt in behalf of her boyfriend as he isn’t really used in public appearances. “Actually, ninenerbyos ako para sa kanya kasi hindi naman siya sanay. Masaya naman. Bago sa akin ‘to kasi wala naman akong naiharap ‘di ba? First time ‘to, kahit ‘yung mga tatay ng anak ko. Parang nahihiya ako kasi parang kung kailan may apat na ‘kong anak. But you know, sabi nga ni Vice, deserve nating lumigaya, sumaya,” Karla said.
The two met last June 1 and Jam immediately admitted the attraction he had towards Karla. Jam said, “Maganda siya. Nagkakatinginan kasi kami madalas eh.” He also mentioned that he fell in love with the actress even more after they spent more time together. ‘Yung nakilala ko na siya mas mabuti. ‘Di naman siya mahirap mahalin eh,” said Jam.
After mending a broken heart for years, Karla revealed that she at first thought twice over her feelings for Jam as it may simply be just “infatuation”. She added that despite her strong personality and knowing that she has four children living in the same roof, Jam whole heartedly came over their house with a bouquet of flowers to visit her three days after they first met.
