They say that siblings may tread different paths, but they will always share that distinct bond given that they began their life journeys together. And this seems true to talented celebrity siblings Arjo and Ria Atayde, the beloved children of Be Careful With My Heart actress Sylvia Sanchez, who do not only delight us with us their visuals and acting chops, but with their unbreakable sibling love as well.
Going through their respective social media accounts, these siblings surely know how to express their love and support for each other all the time. They would share to the world how proud and happy they are of the other when they have new projects or achievements, as well as how much they miss one another in an ordinary day. While there are siblings out there who seem find it awkward to be clingy with each other, but not Arjo and Ria.
In the caption of one of her Instagram posts, Ria paid tribute to her kuya: “Of all the roles you've played, it's being my brother you've done the best”. Arjo, on the other hand, greeted her younger sister on her birthday by saying: “You will always be my perfect baby sister. No matter what happens, I will always be by your side. I will always be your kuya who loves you so much, and will always be here to protect you. I love you soooooooo much!!!”
During his Magandang Buhay interview in 2018, the 31-year-old actor-politician personally shared stories of his bond with Ria. According to him, he and all of his siblings may be close, but he’s the closest with her as they consider each other as “best friends”. They never had a big fight growing up, only petty quarrels over the most mundane issues.

It can also be recalled that Arjo and Ria were each other’s arm candy on both their first appearances in the star-studded event Star Magic Ball. In 2016, they also received their respective accolades from the PMPC Star Awards, wherein Arjo was named the Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of the villain Joaquin on FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, while Ria was honored as Best New Female TV Personality for her impressive performance in the “Puno ng Mangga” episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya.
And from simply supporting him on his projects, the Viral Scandal actress and their whole family also showed their all-out support to him when he ran as Congressman for the 1st District of Quezon City in the 2022 national elections. Their efforts during the campaign indeed paid off as he eventually won. During his induction last June, it was Ria who held the Bible when he took his oath, based on the set of photos she posted documenting that monumental day that she captioned: “Will literally be beside you every step of the way and already so proud of what you’ve done even before being elected… can’t wait to see what else you’ll do. Love you!!”
Only a month after, Ria then lent a hand in the preparations of her kuya’s wedding proposal to his now-fiancee, TV personality Maine Mendoza, last July 28. As she shared a few photos from that magical evening and expressed her admiration and well-wishes towards the newly-engaged couple in an IG post, Arjo replied, “Love you so much wiwi (heart emoji) thanks for always helping me out with everything
Indeed, Sylvia and her husband Art are blessed enough to have kids like Arjo and Ria who unconditionally love and unwaveringly support one another – just like her on-screen kids Maya (Jodi Sta. Maria) and Cristina Rose (Ice Seguerra) in Be Careful With My Heart.
