SHOWBIZ star Kathryn Bernardo may not be as rabid a basketball fan as her dad, but she's nonetheless thrilled to be at the PBA season opener on Sunday night.
The popular Kapamilya actress had a ball acting as a PBA muse for the first time as she joined the Magnolia Hotshots during the opening festivities.
Kathryn looked stunning in a dark blue gown as she joined the Hotshots, led by team governor Rene Pardo, during the parade of teams at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
“It was my first time to become a muse and it’s an amazing experience, I’m happy to be here to support Magnolia,” she shared with SPIN LIFE.
But more than anything else, she was happy for her dad who's a certified big PBA fan.
“I may not be a sports person, kaunting-kaunti lang ang alam ko sa sports. Pero what I do know is that my dad is a big fan of the PBA, and he’s happy that I’m here today.”
As the Hotshots play their first game of the PBA Philippine Cup against reigning champion San Miguel Beer, Kathryn showed where her loyalty lies.
“Good luck to all the players sa game nila mamaya," said Bernardo, whose reel and real-life boyfriend, Daniel Padilla, is also big basketball enthusiast.
"And for the fans, please keep supporting them,” she added.
