At 40, it’s still quite unimaginable for Jericho Rosales, who appeared as the unfaithful husband Adrian in The Legal Wife in 2014, to have a child because of his youthful façade and hunky built. These are also the reasons why he is often mistaken as his teenage son’s older brother by people who don’t personally know them or unaware of their story.
Just like his dad, Santino is more than just a handsome face, too. Although he doesn’t have plans to enter show business and follow Echo’s footsteps, he relentlessly creates his mark in the world of sports and fashion through his own way.
Aside from being a full-time high school student in Colegio de San Agustin, he served as a varsity football player as well for his alma mater and plays for the Makati City-based professional football association Kaya Futball Club. As he finished his secondary education last March 2018, he now represents De La Salle University in the collegiate football league.
At the same time, the 19-year-old hottie is also a member of the premier modelling organization Professional Models Association of the Philippines (PMAP) which paved his way to sashay in runway shows for renowned designers and grace the cover of a local magazine in 2017. He even accepted a few endorsement projects, too.
Their family is a modern one, with him living with his mom Kai Palomares, who formerly worked as a model, while his father has a blissful married life with his wife of four years, model Kim Jones.
Although they have an unconventional set-up, Santino and Jericho are still able to hang out often, either every weekend or if their busy schedules permit. Some of the activities they enjoy doing together are working out, surfing, and dining together.
Besides, the Kapamilya actor also makes sure to be present in his son’s every milestone, such as his runway shows, his birthday, his football games, and his graduation. But whenever he fails to show up, he would drop a comment on his unico hijo’s post to praise him for another job well done or to just write a witty remark.
Theirs is indeed a father and son tandem many of us are surely yearning for!
