We now see her as the privileged yet troubled Joy in the highly talked about inspirational drama Huwag Kang Mangamba. But for those who have been following her shindigs off-the-series and off-cam, they would know that young actress Francine Diaz is actually loud and bubbly whenever she’s surrounded by people dear to her heart, especially by her family in real-life.
The 17-year-old actress has five beautiful siblings – namely, Chantal, Cameron, Cali, Courtney, and Eisa – and is a good daughter to the hardworking couple Daddy JM and Mommy Merdick.
Going through her official Instagram account, which is mostly filled by snaps of herself and anything about work, we could see a few posts and stories dedicated to her beloved family, too, that prove how she loves them so much and how proud she is of them. In every photo and video she had with them, we could see how tightly bonded Francine is with her family. She even shared in one of her IG stories how their Sundays at home usually turns into an instant children’s party as they all love to bond with the younger members of their family by playing with them.
However, before attaining the comfortable life they are living right now, Francine and Daddy JM revealed during their interview in Magandang Buhay in 2018 that they used to have a difficult life back then.
Despite working abroad, Daddy JM still found it hard to provide all the needs of his growing family. But they just remained positive and were able to gradually conquer their financial woes later on as Francine began her career in commercial modelling and acting.
