Those who have been watching the controversial series “The Broken Marriage Vow” have probably developed mixed emotions towards Zaijian Jaranilla’s character Gio, the unico hijo of estranged couple Jill and David, astoundingly depicted by Jodi Sta. Maria and Zanjoe Marudo, due to his unlikely and deplorable behavior following the breakup of his parents.
For sure, many abhorred Gio for leaving his mom alone and choosing to believe and stay with his dad and his new wife Lexy (Sue Ramirez). But he’s able to redeem himself in the recent episodes as he finally has learned his lessons and decided to stick with his mother amid his father’s incessant pestering.
He may be an only child in the teleserye, but Zaijian actually has two younger brothers in real life, namely Zildjian and Zymic. As he’s able to successfully keep his personal life away from the public eye, nothing is actually known about them. However, he was able to open up a bit about his parents’ separation in an episode of Tonight With Boy Abunda in 2018, wherein he was asked by the King of Talk on how that heartbreaking event affected him.
“Sa totoo, Tito Boy, ginawa ko siyang inspirasyon. Natutunan ko po ‘to kay Tita Dimples [Romana], na ‘yong mga pinagdadaanan, huwag mong sarilinin. Ibigay mo ‘yan sa trabaho mo para maging mas mabuti ka pa,” he conveyed, adding that his connection to both of them wasn’t cut off.
It was also in that same interview wherein it was revealed that he and his siblings actually grew up under the care of their dad Zenon and their grandmother. Not much may be known about his equally good-looking brothers, but they seemingly have established a tight bond with one another and have created beautiful memories together growing up, based on their pictures that we collated in this gallery.
