For sure, we’ve already witnessed how an awesome actress, doting mother, endearing daughter, and sweet friend Dirty Linen star Jennica Garcia is. But, perhaps, not a lot of people know that she’s also a loving ate to her younger brother Kotaro Shimizu.
Just in case you aren’t aware yet, he is Jean Garcia’s son with a Japanese advertising executive, whom she met while she was still working in Japan as a singer many years ago. And while he used to keep himself low-key and away from the spotlight, he’s been slowly gaining attention through his mom and sister’s social media posts that included him, as well as his own posts, through which we get a glimpse of his handsomeness and flair in dancing.
While we only get to see photos and videos of him and of him with his mom on his Instagram and TikTok accounts, Kotaro actually has a number of snaps with his Ate Jennica, too, which we collated in this gallery for you to see!
Going through the photos of them shared by the Dirty Linen actress many years ago, we can deduce that they really have a tight bond growing up. Despite not having the same dad and her hectic schedule due to her showbiz commitments, these never hindered her from creating lovely memories with him ever since their younger years and now that they’re both adults.
From dining together and sharing the same bed when Kotaro was just a little boy, the lovely siblings apparently found other ways to bond, such as going to the salon to have their tresses fixed and being present in each other’s birthdays. Even though he’s already a young man, he’s not shy in expressing his love to the two important women in his life, unlike some people his age.
Aside from letting them share their pictures and videos with him on social media, he also makes sure to make their Mama feel extra special and loved during special occasions by posting tributes for her. At the same time, Jennica also shows her all-out support for her baby brother by cheering for him on the comments section of some of his posts, in which Kotaro sweetly replies.
While both Jean and Jennica are already known in the industry, Kotaro is starting to get noticed, too, as netizens couldn’t help but gush over his handsomeness and his being a spitting image of Hallyu pop group BTS members Jungkook and Kim Taehyung (or V). Besides, Korean idol Kai of the K-pop group EXO also “liked” Kotaro dance cover of his comeback single as a solo artist “Rover” uploaded on IG.
Are we going to see him on TV as well, soon? Well, let’s just all find out. For now, let us catch Jennica as the sharp-witted and scheming Lala Millado in Dirty Linen, weeknights on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, A2Z, and TV5.
