  • They are only 6 and 5 years old, yet they've already made quite an impression in show business at such a young age. The daughters of talent manager / songwriter Carla Concio and musician Francis Concio, and the apple of the eye of their "Kaka" (lola) Charo Santos-Concio, Julia and Talia are not only blessed with good looks but also with many talents and a zest for life.

    Over the weekend, the two precocious girls were launched as the newest brand ambassadors of Baby Bench, along with the equally adorable Bae-by Baste of Eat Bulaga. What is it about the Concio Sisters that makes them good role models for kids their age? Here's what we found out:

    1. They both love dogs.

    2. Playing Monopoly with Dad and Mom is one of their favorite things to do (Talia still calls it 'Bunocoly').


    3. They still sleep in the same room with dad and mom.

    4. On any given day, they will fight for a good five minutes, and then manage to sort out their differences and be best friends again.
