Robin Padilla has finally met Kylie Padilla's three-month-old son Alas Joaquin after a long time of reported conflict between him and his daughter's fiancé Aljur Abrenica.
The meeting had been arranged at the first birthday celebration of Isabella, Robin’s first-born with actress-host Mariel Rodriguez over the weekend in Taguig City. This was the first time Robin met Alas and Kylie since the baby was born in August 2017. The rift was said to be because of the decision of Kylie and Aljur to have a baby before getting married. Alas is his second grandchild, following the birth of his daughter Queenie’s baby weeks before Kylie.
The 47-year-old Unexpectedly Yours actor took to Instagram to express his glee over this meeting. In an uploaded video taken by his manager, Betchay Vidanes, the heartfelt caption read, “Purihin ang nag-iisang Panginoong Maylikha!!! Walang pinakamasaya sa isang lolo kundi ang mayakap at mabuhat ang isa sa unang apo.”
In the video, beside his tearful wife Mariel and daughter Kylie, Robin picked up his grandchild for the first time. In his post, he added, “Napakasarap iparinig sa kanyang tenga ang Adhan/call to prayer bilang unang pamana sa kanyang napakamusmos at matalas na pandinig. Maraming salamat sa iyo mahal kong anak na @kylienicolepadilla sa pagdala kay ALAS sa akin Alhamdulillah ganoon din sa iyo @marieltpadilla wala nang hihigit pang kaligayahan sa araw na ito. Pagpupugay sa lahat ng mga kumilos para maging matagumpay ang pagkikita na ito @vidanes_cm @kayegarcia13.”
Meanwhile, a joyful Kylie posted on her own Instagram account a photo of the Padilla clan with a caption, “The clan. Happy birthday baby sis. We love you.”
