40-year-old Kapamilya actor Jericho Vibar Rosales, also known for his showbiz nickname “Echo” is undeniably one of the most sought-after actors in the local entertainment industry.
The handsome and talented actor entered showbiz after winning “Mr. Pogi” talent search on the noontime variety television show Eat Bulaga, way back in 1996.
Echo’s acting career has spanned for more than two decades already, having a variety of genres. He also garnered international attention and recognition in the Asian, African, and Latin American television markets in the past, when some of his drama series have been distributed in these regions. Thus, giving him the moniker “Asia’s Prince of Dramas.”
The former “Halik” actor has been married to his beautiful Australian-British model wife, Kim Jones, for over five years now, but the couple has decided not to have their own children yet.
Jericho even revealed in an earlier interview that the reason why he and his wife are still not ready to start a family of their own because they both want to focus first on their own goals and careers.
Unknown to many, the actor already has a teenage son from a former relationship, who is also very talented and handsome just like him —Santino Palomares Rosales.
He is the actor’s 18-year-old son with his former partner Kai Palomares, but unlike his dad, who started young in showbiz, Santino doesn’t want to follow in his dad’s footsteps as an actor.
But he is still open in joining other fields like modeling, as a matter of fact, Santino is a member of the modeling organization Professional Models Association of the Philippines (PMAP). He also does some TV commercials.
Aside from modeling, this young man is also good at sports, particularly football. He is a varsity football player in his alma mater and plays for the Makati City-based professional football association.
Based on a report by ABS-CBN News, Jericho’s son is a varsity football player in his former alma mater, Colegio San Agustin, Makati. He also plays defense for the Makati City-based professional football association.
Santino graduated from senior high school last year and is currently studying at De La Salle University. He is taking Interdisciplinary Business Studies as he wants to focus on managing a business and pursuing a career in modeling in the future.
