The father of actress Coleen Garcia has admitted courting television host-actress Karla Estrada, mother of teen superstar Daniel Padilla.
“Parang ganun na nga,” laughed Jose Garcia, father of Coleen, during an interview on “TV Patrol” news program of ABS-CBN.
“When I see her it’s like looking into a mirror. Ito pala ang babaeng ina-admire ko. Sabi ko baliw rin pala ito,” he added.
These days, Jose said that he and Estrada, one of the hosts of the Kapamilya morning show “Magandang Buhay,” are on getting-to-know each other level.
Recently, they were spotted together during the red carpet premier of the movie “Love Me Tomorrow” which reportedly already hit more than R100 million at the box-office. The movie stars Piolo Pascual and Dawn Zulueta.
Asked if she supports her father in his pursuit of Karla, Coleen said: “Oo naman! I just want my dad to be happy.
Tita Karla also deserves to be happy.”
Coleen, 23, also said that she is ready to become a stepsister to Padilla.
“It’s weird. It’s so strange pero OK naman. Tanggap ko naman if ever,” Coleen said.
She added: “It’s a good feeling also to see my dad happy. My dad has been single since I was nine? And I’m already turning 24 this year, so it’s about time.”
Coleen said that she is preparing for a new project under Star Cinema.
“It’s action but my halong comedy. Kinda like ‘Charlie’s Angels. I’m gonna train for this kasi action ‘yan eh,” the actress said.
