  • In July 2021, social media was flooded with the news of Aljur Abrenica and Kylie Padilla’s split. After 10 years of being together, the celebrity couple called it quits because of a third party issue. 

    Their split was quite controversial as they were both celebrities, and Robin Padilla confirmed their break-up. 

    More than a year after the issue, Aljur Abrenica shared some personal stories regarding co-parenting with Kylie and how they are still trying to be the best parents amidst their  situation. 

    On November 18, in an interview with Aster Amoyo that aired on her YouTube channel TicTALK with Aster Amoyo, Aljur said “Sa co-parenting, doon kami nag-focus ngayon. Kasi iisipin niyo na yung mga bata eh. Almost everyday, nag-uusap kami.”

    Aljur and Kylie have two sons, Alas, 5 years old and Axl, who’s turning 3 years old this December. 

    Aljur continued to share that even though they are separated, he and Kylie talk everyday. Their usual conversation goes like this, “Si Alas ganito ang ginawa niya, anong reaksiyon mo dito kapag ginagawa niya to? Ako, ganito ginagawa ko. Sige, I’ll try that. Pag-uusapan pa namin kung what’s better pag nagkakaganito ang ugali niya. Paano natin i-aapproach?”

    The couple set aside their personal differences and made sure that they work on becoming the best parents to their children. “Kahit hiwalay kami we’re still learning from each other how to be good parents in the best possible way we can,” he said. 

    As most parents do with co-parenting, Aljur shared their schedule, “Ako, I have three times a week sa mga bata. Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Sometimes one to two weeks if Kylie has taping, but usually, hindi talaga ako tumatanggap ng work during weekends.”

    Learning from his children

    Aljur also shared what he's learned as a father, “Ang mga bata para sakin, parang teacher sila eh. Some things we forget eh, life is simple. Pag nasaktan siya, masasaktan lang siya and ang bilis lang niyang makaget-over and he learns from it.”

    “He reminds me na ganun ang buhay, pag may problema, tayo lang naman sa sarili natin ang nagpapabigat at nagpapakumplika,” Aljur continued. 

    He also said, “For me, it’s a privilege to have kids.”

    Even though their kids are young, Aljur said that Alas knows their situation. “Si Alas, alam niyang hiwalay ang parents niya, for a time naapektuhan siya, but now he’s okay.”

    He then remembered a time when Alas was younger, which made him realize that kids are also sensitive to their parents’ emotions, “Three years old si Alas, nag-away kaming mag-asawa. Naaala niya pa rin yun hanggang ngayon. Sabi niya sakin, ‘Papa, hindi mo love si Mama.’’

    Aljur said that it was painful hearing that from his son, and considering what happened to them, he knew that Alas is already aware.

    He shared that in order to be a better parent, he learned to accept things that he cannot change at that time, “Nung tinanggap ko na, yun na yung time na nagkaroon na ko ng peace. Dun na ako nagkaroon ng space to think how to make it better.”

    He continued to discuss how he and Kylie make co-parenting work, “Ang ginagawa ko ngayon, I go there, I talk to Kylie, Oh eto ang sinasabi ng bata, anong sasabihin natin?”

    Aljur also makes sure that he has quality time with the kids, “I go there, we have quality time. Si Alas, we do piano. Kami ni Kylie nag-uusap.”

    “There’s a time na wala talaga akong oras, may window lang na two hours na free. Bumili lang kami ng donut, sabi ko kay Kylie sumama na siya,” Aljur shares as he recalled a fond moment.

    He also said that he appreciates Kylie because they are still growing together despite the break-up. Aljur also shared how he apologized to Kylie, “Sorry, hindi ko nakita yun. I thought na pag lagi akong wala, I can provide more for the family. Pero hindi pala.”

    He was then asked if he was open to reconciliation with Kylie, and answered, “May nagsarado ba? Wala namang nakakaalam ng mangyayari.”
