10 Beautiful Celebrity Children
These are the faces to watch for this year.
(SPOT.ph) Much like our political landscape, the world of Pinoy showbiz is chockful of familial clans that span generations. Some families, like Padilla and Gutierrez, go as far back as the '50s and remain recognizable even until today. From fresh faces to up-and-coming models, we round up 10 celebrity kids who are all set to make their own waves this 2017...and beyond.
Celebrity parents: John Estrada and Janice de Belen
While her younger sister, Inah de Belen, is venturing into film and TV acting, Kaila Estrada is making her mark in the fashion industry. The 20-year-old model under Mercator Models is currently turning heads as the face of SM Youth, Sunnies Studios, Belo Baby, and more. She's also an Arts Management student from the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde.
Celebrity parents: Derek Dee and Melanie Marquez
This rising star boasts some very fashionable genes, courtesy of her supermodel and beauty queen mom, Melanie Marquez. Her career began when she was signed by Bench after accompanying her mom to a fashion show. These days, the 21-year-old is already gracing plenty of glossy magazine covers and ad campaigns.
Sabina de Leon-Gonzalez
Celebrity parents: Mon Gonzalez and Tweetie de Leon
Fashion also runs in the blood of this fresh-faced model. At just 19 years old, Sabina was an instant pro at her first runway show, walking for designer Maureen Disini in 2015. A year later, she was part of the launch for the Happy Skin and Plains & Prints collaboration. Today, she occasionally dabbles in modeling gigs, but she's set on completing her degree in Architecture.
Celebrity parents: Cesar Montano and Sunshine Cruz
Angelina, who bears a striking resemblance to her gorgeous mom, may only be 14 but she's already a big hit on social media. In 2016, she made her foray into showbiz with a Careline endorsement deal. She's also done some appearances on the weekly noontime show, ASAP; she only recently signed on to Universal Records and ALV Talents, so expect more from her very soon.
Celebrity parents: Dennis Padilla and Marjorie Barretto
The Barrettos are no strangers to the ins-and-outs of showbiz. The latest Barretto family member to hit the spotlight is 16-year-old Claudia (the younger sister of Julia and Dani). Many have tagged her as the next big star; she signed a recording contract with Universal Records and has also posed for Bench's 2016 holiday campaign.
Celebrity parents: Pogs Magpantay and Lala Flores
In 1990, renowned makeup artist Lala Flores rose to modeling fame after competing (and winning) the Supermodel of the Philippines award. Twenty years later, her daughter Danica Magpantay, became the first Filipina to win the Ford Supermodel of the World. These days, the New York-based Danica (signed under Ford Models) has posed and walked for Sephora, Nanette Lepore, Target, and more.
Celebrity parents: Janno Gibbs and Bing Loyzaga
Unlike her famous parents, Gabs Gibbs carved her own niche in the world of makeup. Although she's a graphics design student by day, she's also a talented makeup artist and YouTube vlogger. One of her makeup tutorials, which featured an amazing makeup transformation, actually went viral all over the world. (If you're curious about her younger sister, Alyssa, she is a co-founder for the homegrown clothing store, Neon Island.)
Maria Angelica de Leon
Celebrity parents: Christopher de Leon and Sandy Andolong
In 2013, a then-19-year-old Maria Angelica de Leon was a Binibining Pilipinas contender and an early favorite to win the title. Although she didn't get to take home the coveted crown, she's currently a talent under Viva Artist Agency. Maybe she'll go into acting like her superstar parents?
Celebrity parents: Gary Valenciano and Angeli Pangilinan
It's no surprise that the daughter of Mr. Pure Energy also boasts some very talented pipes. The 24-year-old launched her music career in 2016, with a song that features a chill and ambient electro-R&B sound. When she isn't blogging or basking by the beach, she's dabbling in fashion; she studied at the Raffles Design Institute and Central Saint Martins in London!
Celebrity parents: Ogie Alcasid and Michelle van Eimeren
In July 2016, 18-year-old Leila Alcasid made headlines after the Internet noticed she resembled Selena Gomez. Leila grew up with her mom in Australia but according to a recent Instagram post, she announced that she will be moving to Manila in January 2017. She has yet to formally join showbiz, but she's already pretty popular on social media.
