Actor Jericho Rosales' 17-year-old son Santino looks to be growing up just as dashing as the star actor. And while he's still young and currently exploring his passions, we have no doubt that this promising kid is set for the big leagues no matter where he finds himself in the future.
Santino is known to have started a career in fashion, following the footsteps of his mom Kai Palomares who was also a model. He shares, "My inspiration for modeling is my mother. She inspired me to be more confident in front of the camera and to show that I am an art myself."
Just recently graduating from high school, Santino seems to have a good head on his shoulders and the fuel that keeps his passions aflame. With interests ranging from football to business, this young heartthrob is already a character to be admired. When asked about his motivation, Santino easily quipped, "What continues to spark me is my drive to keep on improving everyday in everything that I do."
There's no question that Santino is growing up to be a man of his own, but his parents have always been a huge part of the impressive lad that he is today. When it comes to his relationship with his dad Jericho, Santino reveals that he loves how the actor is like his barkada, saying that he's the most fun companion especially during a workout sesh or a food trip. At the same time, Jericho's role as his father is made even stronger whenever Santino needs advice–he knows he can always count on him to guide him through.
When asked about the best lesson that Santino has learned from Jericho, the younger Rosales shared, "Just stay humble. Be nice to everyone because everybody plays a specific and important role in your life." Of course, he never forgets to give appreciation to his mom Kai as well, adding, "Both my parents actually taught me to always stay grounded and not brag about the things I’ve done or will do. Just let your success do the talking."
With this kind of mindset and a whole path in front of him waiting to unfold, we're certain that Santino will do his parents proud. Aside from his dapper appeal, his determination and unassuming character will surely take him to new heights, and we'll be here rooting for him!
