Both possessing mestizo looks, charming vibes, and unmistakable talents, there’s no doubt that veteran actor Ramon Christopher and up-and-coming artist Diego Gutierrez are indeed father and son! And we’re to get a glimpse of their admirable bond and get to know the latter more during their recent guesting in Magandang Buhay.
Apart from being a dead ringer of his Daddy Monching, the 24-year-old artist revealed to the momshie-hosts that there’s actually a lot more that he has inherited from his dad.
“Kasi si Papa, lagi niya talagang sinasabi sa’min kung gaano niya kami ka-love, gano’n. Everytime, ‘pag tatawag siya ng phone, ‘yon ang pinakaunang sinasabi niya. So, ‘yon din ang mga nakuha namin as kids – we always express how we feel about each other,” he said.
Having Lotlot and Monching as parents, not to mention Eddie Gutierrez and Pilita Corrales as grannies, could inflict a huge pressure on him, but Diego seems to not get that into his head as he currently opts to focus on his music career. In fact, he disclosed to the Magandang Buhay hosts that his first song is going to be released this month.

Going through his Instagram posts and a few articles about him online reveal that he’s also a promising basketball player.
Standing at 6-foot flat, Diego takes on the role of a shooting guard for the Quezon City Defenders team of the National Basketball League (NBL). Just like other amateur players like him, it has been his dream of making it to the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) ever since he joined the varsity team of his high school and college.
He graduated from University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P) in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Integrated Marketing Communications, and regards his girlfriend of four years – Bea San Jose – as one of those who helped him get through his college life. Yes, you’ve read that right. Diego is already off the market!
Aside from basketball and music, his posts suggest that Diego apparently loves to go on adventures and bonding with his whole family, too! Check out his dashing portraits that we collated in this gallery!
