He may be awfully despised in The Broken Marriage Vow because of the infidelity, craftiness, and wickedness of his character David, but Zanjoe Marudo is actually adored by many in real life, particularly by his beloved family – and the photos in this gallery are proofs!
Unlike other celebrities who completely keep their personal life away from the public eye, the model-turned-actor has been sharing photos of his big, happy family on Instagram through the years. His avid supporters surely know that he has five siblings, namely Zosanne, Zandro, Zjaye, and Zaniejean and he’s the third among them. They now only have their father Zosimo, after their mother Rosanna died in February 2018.
The sudden demise of their matriarch may have shattered them entirely, but it has indeed brought him and his siblings closer than ever as well, as what he disclosed in his Tonight With Boy Abunda interview later that year. According to him, they have grown more empathetic and patient to one another since they’ve realized that misunderstandings and quarrels should not have a room in their family anymore.
Building a new house in Batangas has also helped in bringing them closer to each other, since this is where they usually hold their get-togethers with their other relatives for various occasions. However, it just saddened him that their mom didn’t have the chance to see it anymore before passing away.
The 39-year-old actor’s lovely moments with his family are indeed sights to behold as attested by the thousands of “likes” that the photos of them going on trips here and abroad, doing various shenanigans, and coming together for celebrations rake in. Just like many of us, the pandemic has also brought them closer, to the point that it was Zanjoe who cut the hair of their Daddy Zosimo.
However, it’s not only to his father and siblings to whom he’s tightly bonded with, but to his nieces and nephews, too! Just go through this gallery to see his adorable photos with them!
