James Reid back hugs and carries Daniel Padilla to the dance floor


Kapamilya favorite leading men James Reid and Daniel Padilla were caught in a “bromance” in this cute, never-before-seen interaction.  

In the seconds-video clip reposted by Twitter user @Galiyamarie last Sunday, a shy Daniel can be seen being urged by the people around him to dance during the ASAP after-party in Rome. Daniel at first was so hesitant that James came in and back hugged Daniel while bringing him to the dance floor.

James even patted Daniel on the shoulder before he was convinced to show off a few moves.

The rare moment caught on cam seemed to mean that the two stars’ perceived rivalry has subsided. No fan wars, just heart reacts.

Netizens overwhelmed by Daniel and James’ “sweet moment” said they are happy for the budding friendship of JaNiel (as what they’re calling James and Daniel’s ship).

Here are some of their reactions.

Meanwhile, some fans are also hoping for a similar moment between Kathryn Bernardo and Nadine Lustre, the loveteam partners of Daniel and James, respectively.

In case you have forgotten, the Kapamilya heartthrobs have already worked on a project together earlier this year.

Both James and Daniel are part of the country’s most popular and hottest loveteams KathNiel and JaDine.
