Veteran actors Lotlot de Leon and Ramon Christopher are so blessed with beautiful and talented children. They include the eldest Janine Gutierrez, followed by Jessica, Diego and the youngest, Maxine. Even if their parents have been longtime showbiz luminaries and Janine has since shone as the latest Kapamilya star while Diego is among the newest breed of concert artists on ASAP Natin ‘To, Jessica and Maxine chose to stay out of the limelight.
Maxine, however, always catches the attention of netizens, who are in awe of her stunning gorgeousness. As we see in her OOTD posts, she is a fashionista who can pull off whatever outfit she chooses to wear. But what we notice quite endearingly is how Maxine and her siblings are so close to each other, especially Janine. Maxine calls Janine her “Ate Bear” while Janine gives Maxine an adorable name, “Foofie.”
In one of Janine’s vlogs, the Gutierrez siblings played “The Sibling Tag” and the “Who’s Most Likely To” challenges. When asked who's the most ‘matakaw’ or the most voracious eater among them, Maxine sprayed herself because she said she’s the top “devourer” in the family. Janine shared they call her as such because when she was still young, she would eat huge servings of rice. Diego also shared that there was a time when Maxine cried because she couldn’t finish her food anymore, such as the time when Maxine said dad Monching admonished her for playing with that last piece of sushi served to them at a restaurant and forced her to eat it even if she was already full. “Don’t play with it if you’re not going to eat it,” Maxine recalled her father telling her.
Her siblings also described Maxine as the one who’s most likely to get hungry in the middle of the night. Jessica shared that they would usually sleep at around 12 midnight and if they happen to wake up in the wee hours of the morning, they would see Maxine eating a cheeseburger with her eyes closed. They added that later in the morning, Maxine could not even recall what she munched.
For her siblings, however, Maxine is the expert in cooking. Jessica said that she has actually been their “quarantine chef.” They also shared that Maxine is the one who’s most likely to do the house chores, which Janine said Maxine enjoys doing. In fact, Maxine would even ask her if she could clean her bathroom.
In Maxine and Diego’s guesting in Magandang Buhay, Maxine shared that her Kuya Diego would usually be exempted from doing the house chores, saying it’s probably because he’s the only boy among the Gutierrez siblings.

Maxine shared that right after he eats, he would just put his plate in the sink and go to his room. She added that Diego would become overprotective when it came to his sisters’ choosing the clothes they would wear. For instance, if Diego would see that his sisters were wearing skimpy, revealing outfits, he would ask them why. But Maxine, Janine, and Jessica would always remind their brother this shouldn’t be an issue, emphasizing that they are free to wear clothes that would make them comfortable.
When Diego was asked how Maxine is like as a sister, he said that she’s actually the most thoughtful and caring. For example, when one of them gets sick, Maxine would cook for that sibling, making sure that her ate or kuya would also drink their medicines on time.
