These famous Filipino dads and their beloved kids have formed strong, heartwarming bonds that are worth celebrating.
From renowned actors to prominent society figures, these father-and-kid duos not only capture our hearts with their charm but are also remarkable examples of unconditional love, support, and inspiration:
The Celebrity Chef, Erwan Heussaff, has successfully turned his favorite pastimes of eating, cooking, traveling, and even competitive sports into professional pursuits.
In 2020, he joyfully welcomed his daughter, Dahlia, into the world with his long-time partner, the beautiful model-actress Anne Curtis, whom he tied the knot with in 2017.
During an interview with Lifestyle Asia, he emphasized that “It’s so important to spend time with your family and loved ones, and that mental break or stimulation it provides is so beneficial for your overall productivity.”
Ever since their marriage in 2016, the Argentine businessman and the multi-talented Filipino actress, model, and artist, Solenn Heussaff, have expanded their family with the arrival of two adorable children.
In an interview with Lifestyle Asia, the 39-year-old dad emphasized the significance of spending ample time with loved ones, asserting that it’s the true measure of wealth and luxury, especially in these crazy times.
When he’s not inspiring and delivering motivational talks to large audiences, Anthony Pangilinan is happily occupied with the task of raising five children alongside his wife, Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan.
When Lifestyle Asia asked how he manages to strengthen his bond with his kids despite his hectic schedule, he enthusiastically shared, “Whenever there’s a chance, you really have to bring them with you when you travel.” With a playful smile, he added, “You also have to do things together. So whatever interests your kids have, you really have to support and join them.”
The renowned photographer shares a close bond with his children, whom he affectionately talks about during his interview with Lifestyle Asia. He proudly mentions his daughter, Aryanna, and his younger child, Dylan, whom he fathered with his wife, Jen.
Reflecting on the speed of life, especially with the presence of a child, he expresses, “I have a kid. He keeps me young, we do kid stuff. You see there’s a stage in life where there’s still curiosity, that’s the beauty of having kids and that’s what I love about it. Kids see art differently than adults.”
The dynamic British-Filipino entrepreneur and CEO of Booky.ph, a top-notch online platform for restaurant booking and discovery in the Philippines. To say that Wintle is constantly on the move would be an understatement. On top of running his business, he also embraces the roles of a loving husband to actress Iza Calzado and a proud father to their adorable three-month-old daughter.
For Wintle, true luxury lies in the freedom to enjoy quality time with his loved ones, doing whatever they want, whenever they want. Balancing work and family, he knows how to appreciate the precious moments that truly matter in life.
May we be inspired by these extraordinary relationships and strive to cherish and nurture the precious connections we share with our own loved ones.
Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers and father figures who continue to inspire and impact the lives of their children.
