Being in the entertainment scene definitely requires one to maintain his/her mesmerizing and youthful allure despite the fact that everyone ages every year. Thus, it’s hard for us to guess how old they already are and we even get surprised once we figure out.
In this Kapamilya Snaps feature, brace yourselves to get astonished as we reveal who among your favorite Kapamilya stars are actually born on the same year!
Although they’ve been treading on different paths at present – with Nadine Lustre keeping herself busy mostly with her music while Sarah Lahbati is juggling her showbiz career and life as a wife to Richard Gutierrez and a mom to their sons Zion and Kai – these two influential celebs have one thing in common: they’re both born on October 1993! Nadine celebrates her birthday every October 31, while Sarah every October 9.
While Enrique Gil has apparently stuck with boy-next-door roles, such as in his recent stint as Gabo Villarica in Make It With You, his fellow 1992 baby Ria Atayde already took on various roles in her five years in the industry, such as being a mom in My Dear Heart (2017). Both of them celebrate their birthdays in the month of March, but seven days apart – Quen on the 30th while Ria on the 23rd.
Aside from continuously soaring careers, being of Chinese descent, having active lifestyles, and their unmistakable beauty and courage in speaking their minds, another thing that Kim Chiu and Gretchen Ho share is the date of their birth. Coincidentally, the Love Thy Woman star and Umagang Kay Ganda host were both exactly born on April 19, 1990!
With Cristine Reyes amazing us with how a dutiful mom she is to her adorable unica hija Amarah, while Arci Muñoz amusing us with her Instagram posts on her fangirling and work shindigs, it’s kind of hard to believe that they’re of the same age. Both of them were born in 1989, with the Pamilya Ko actress celebrating her birthday on January 12 while the Tubig At Langis star on February 12.
As both of them mesmerize us with their ageless beauties and versatility as artists, it’s indeed surprising to know that Sarah Geronimo and Maja Salvador are already in their 30s. While the Popstar Royalty already hit 32 years old just last July 25, the Dance Royalty is still on her way as she’s yet to celebrate her natal day on October 5.
Bea Alonzo and Denise Laurel may be both turning 33 this year – Bea on Oct 17 and Denise on September 30 – but they’re still able to prove to us that they can keep pace with the veterans when it comes to acting and with the younger gens in their youthful glow. Through the years, they didn’t let their busyness – Bea with her showbiz commitments and humanitarian causes, while Denise with career and motherhood – hinder them from staying young.
Apart from their spellbinding allures and enthralling television and movie stints, what makes 1985 babies and real-life friends Angel Locsin and Anne Curtis extra incredible are their huge heart, especially for those who are in need, and their bravery to speak on national issues. Besides, both of them are in happy relationships, with the Iba ‘Yan host already engaged to her long-time boyfriend Neil Arce and the It’s Showtime mainstay is now a happy wife to Erwan Heusaff and a loving mom to Baby Dahlia Amelie.
Before they went on their separate ways – with Toni Gonzaga juggling her responsibilities as a homemaker and a TV personality, while Sam Milby keeping himself occupied with his commitments in showbiz and in his romantic relationship – we all know that the two used to be linked to one another in the early 2000s. But what some of us are probably unaware of is that they were both born in 1983 – the I Feel U host on January 20 and the Ang Iyo Ay Akin star on May 23.
Both born in 1983, we’ve witnessed how John Lloyd Cruz and Bianca Gonzalez have grown into becoming one of the finest and most celebrated in their respective fields. And now, both of them also astonish us with how they are nailing parenthood – with the award-winning actor to his firstborn Elias and the seasoned presenter to her two daughters Lucia and Carmen.
Meanwhile, Tabing Ilog alumnae and 1982 babies Kaye Abad and Jodi Sta. Maria have never failed to captivate us with their youthful glow, despite already being moms. The Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit actress, who was born on May 17, has chosen to settle down with her husband Paul Jake Castillo and their son Pio in Cebu, while the Ang Iyo Ay Akin star, whose birthday is June 16, is now a proud single mom to her teenage son Thirdy.
At 39, both Luis Manzano and Karylle seemingly already have the things others are yearning to have – happy relationships and soaring careers. Luis has been with actress Jessy Mendiola for four years and currently hosts The Voice Teens Philippines, while Karylle has been married to Spongecola frontman Yael Yuzon for six years and been hosting It’s Showtime for a decade now.
At their age, both Piolo Pascual and Vhong Navarro still unfailingly swoon us with their good looks and unmistakable talents. Aside from these and both being born in 1977 and on the same month – Piolo on January 12 and Vhong on January 4 – another thing that these two heartthrobs share is that both of them are already dads to grown up kids. The ASAP Natin ‘To mainstay fathers phenom Iñigo Pascual, while the It’s Showtime host has two sons named Isaiah and Frederick and is now married to his long-time non-showbiz partner.
And last, but definitely not the least, are OPM icons Gary Valenciano and Zsa Zsa Padilla who were both born in 1964. They may be already in their 50s, yet both of them are still able to keep pace with the younger generation when it comes to the energy they exhibit in their performances, such as in their weekly ASAP Natin ‘To stints.
Aside from proving us that age is just a number, these Kapamilya stars also remind us that we all have different timelines, narratives, and interests, so there’s definitely no need for us to be pressured by how our age-mates are faring or choosing to live their respective lives.
