Kylie Padilla has spoken up for the first time about her separation from husband Aljur Abrenica.
In a statement sent to GMA News on Thursday, Kylie said apart from her and the actor, their kids Alas Joaquin and Axl Romeo were also having a hard time with the situation.
“Every family goes through a lot of challenges and sometimes we think that it is only the couple that goes through the ordeal. We forget the kids and people that are involved,” she said.
According to the actress, their family have gone through the “process of recovering, healing, and moving on” in the past few months.
“All we need right now is respect—first and foremost on the decisions we have made as a family and respect for each and every member of our family—to Aljur who is the father of my two wonderful boys, most especially to Alas and Axl who are at this point very fragile, and to our families from both sides who have guided us along the way,” she said.
Kylie said she and Aljur were working on a co-parenting setup.
“Aljur and I are working on a healthy co-parenting relationship together for our boys’ sake,” she said.
“We pray and hope that we will become better persons through this experience and will bring out the best in all of us. Thank you for your love and support,” she added.
Kylie’s father, Robin Padilla, confirmed the couple’s split in an interview with Ogie Diaz.
Kylie and Aljur got together 10 years ago and tied the knot in December 2018. – RC, GMA News
