The reel character prized singer-actor Ariel Rivera is portraying on the newest afternoon drama Hanggang Saan is the role he takes on in real life – a father.
His 20-year marriage to seasoned actress Gelli de Belen gave birth to two amazing and good-looking boys, namely Joaquin Andres and Julio Alessandro. Their firstborn Joaquin, who is now 18 years old, finished high school last year and dreams of becoming a pilot someday.
A few years ago, the couple planned to migrate to Canada in order to be with them, but junked it since their livelihood is here. Their sons are currently under the care and guidance of Ariel’s family.
However, unlike the snob and domineering Jacob Montecillo, he is a loving and lenient patriarch.
Whenever he and the La Luna Sangre star will be with their kids, they make it a point that every moment spent would be enjoyable and memorable, even if it’s as simple as watching movies or dining out, as seen on their Instagram pages.
Just recently, they spent the holidays and celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary in Canada, enduring the chilly temperature as they explore the various attractions there.
