Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla split

Kathryn Bernardo has finally confirmed her split with Daniel Padilla after 11 years together.

On Instagram, the "Hello, Love, Goodbye" star shared her official statement regarding the breakup.

"I want you to hear it straight from me: It's true that Deej and I have decided to part ways," she wrote.

"What Deej and I had was real. It was never for show," she added. "We were together not because of the cameras, not because of the fans, not because of the money that comes with a successful love team."

Kathryn said she would never regret the 11 years spent with Daniel.

"These are 11 years that brought me joy, adventure, and the feeling of being home," she said.

"He knew me more than anyone else. He was my first boyfriend. He was my comfort zone. He was my person. I will always have love for him," she added.

The 27-year-old actress said she and Daniel have been "drifting apart" for a while now, and they had to ultimately accept that they couldn't go back to what they used to be.

"These past few months have been tough, but thank you for giving us the time we need to process the pain and finally face the elephant in the room," she said.

"Our love story began with respect and ended with respect," she added.

Kathryn ended her post by telling Daniel, "you gave me 11 beautiful years and the kind of love that I will forever cherish."

"I will always be grateful for you," she said.

 Daniel also confirmed the breakup on his Instagram account.

"Sa mundo, buhay at sa limitadong oras na tayo ay nandito, isang malaking biyaya ang pagmamahal. Ang mahalin ka. At mahalin mo," he wrote.

"Ang mga alaala natin ay [lagi] kong baon sa aking puso at magiging liwanag sa mga madidilim kong araw," he added.

He also thanked Kathryn for the beautiful memories they spent together for the past 11 years and concluded his post by professing his eternal love for the actress.

"Thank you for dancing with me during my highs and thank you for singing with me during my lows. Our lives may drift away, but our love will still ride that tide."

"Bal, ang pagmamahal ko sa 'yo ay walang hanggan at walang katapusan."
