The birth of their much-awaited little survivor made Mariel a very protective and hands-on mom. Now, she’s a housewife who cares for both her baby girl and husband Robin Padilla.
But before she got preoccupied with family life, Mariel Rodriguez Padilla had a blooming career as actress and TV host. She was a main host for both ‘Pinoy Big Brother’ and ‘It’s Showtime’ in 2016.
News about her impending return to showbiz circulated the internet now that Isabella is turning 2 this year.
However, Robin Padilla had this to say about the matter:
“Ang tanong ay kung papayagan ba siya ng anak niya. Pag pinayagan siya ng anak niya, wala na akong magagawa doon. Hindi kasi humihiwalay sa kanya,” explained Robin in an interview with Philippine Entertainment Portal and Cinema News after the 49th Box Office Entertainment Awards ng Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation, Inc. last May 20.
He also happily mentioned the good news that his wife, Mariel is now finally getting her shape back.
“Iyan ang pinakamagandang nangyari sa bahay namin, wala nang magandang iba pa. Isa ako sa mga inalagaan, kaya siya pumayat kaaalaga sa akin. Totoo yun, inalagaan niya ang anak ko, inaalagaan niya kaming lahat.”
“Very good wife, mother,” he adds.
He was also asked about the award he received that night.
“Siyempre malaking karangalan yun pag galing sa Guillermo… Pang-ilan na ba ito? Forty-nine. Isipin mo, kaunti na lang, golden year na. Pag sinabing all time, medyo matagal-tagal ka na rin.”
He admitted that he found it heartwarming that he was chosen to be the All Time Favorite Actor in the awards night.
“Siyempre pagdating sa usapin na yun, nakakatuwa yun. Kinikilala ka ng Guillermo, kilala. Hindi rin naman ito fly by night, talagang marangal itong organisasyon.”
He thanked everyone who continued to support him in his acting career, especially after his movie ‘Unexpectedly Yours’.

“Maraming salamat, kasi alam ninyo po, gumagaan ang trabaho ko pag nagugustuhan ninyo yung mga ganung klaseng proyekto, katulad ng Unexpectedly Yours. Kasi ibig sabihin nun, yung mga darating kong proyekto, hindi ko na kailangang tumambling. Sabi nga nitong Guillermo Mendoza, all time, kaya kailangan relax na rin.”
