Just like her characters in Mars Ravelo’s Darna, Jane de Leon also harbors a tight bond with her family in real life.
Similar to Narda, the Kapamilya actress also has one full sibling – her older brother Francis – to whom she is the closest with.
In her exclusive interview with StarStudio.ph in 2019, she recalled how strict both her late Daddy Rouel and her Mommy Hearty were towards her when she was still a kid. Like many of us, she had to sneak from their house to be able to play with her friends on the street.
However, that didn’t serve as a hindrance for Jane to develop tight-knit relationships with her parents, as well as her siblings. She may not share a lot about them on social media often, but when she does, she never fails to warm our hearts through her touching captions and witty remarks to her photos with them, particularly her Mommy Hearty and Kuya Francis. Thus, can be easily deduced that she’s very much close to them.
And they’re able to prove it by taking on the “The Who Knows Jane Best Challenge” [LINK OUT https://ent.abs-cbn.com/starmagic/videos/mommy-hearty-vs-kuya-francis-who-knows-jane-de-leon-better-249274] during their exclusive StarStudio.ph interview, wherein her mom and brother were pitted against each other to determine who between them knows the actress better.
In her Mother’s Day tribute for her Mommy Hearty in 2021 via Instagram, she penned a heartfelt message for her along with a throwback and current photos of them together.
“Since I was just a little girl, you have been raising me to be strong and independent. You’ve been teaching me to believe in myself no matter what. To know my self-worth. Because of you, I am the woman I am today. I am forever grateful to be your daughter. I love you & Happy Mother’s Day,” she wrote on the first.
Aside from her mom, she also expressed her appreciation towards one of her sisters by hopping on to the “#IDontSayThisEveryDayBut” trend on social media that time by also sharing two pictures of them together and captioned it. “…thank you @mrsjoanequimio for being the best sister and for always having my back. Know that I appreciate you and everything that you do. Can’t wait to make more memories. I love you Achi!”
Going through some of her photos with them that we collated in this gallery, the young actress apparently loves to spend time with them whenever her schedule permits. They were also able to travel together in Thailand and Singapore last 2022 along with their other loved ones. Take a peek on some of her bonding moments with them here through the years!
