Scarlet Snow Belo, Zia Dantes, and other celebrity babies of today already have fans, sometimes even before they were born, thanks to social media. But there is an older generation of kids who have just begun to get their turn in the spotlight.
On the cover of this month's issue of Yes! magazine is the talented offsprings of actors, actresses, and musicians, ready to take on the industry that made their parents famous. Here's a look at some of them.
Jayda Avanzado, 13 Famous parents: Singers Jessa Zaragoza and Dingdong Avanzado
Like her parents, Jayda sings and writes music, often about love and self-empowerment. A testament to her talent, Jayda had proven her vocal chops when she opened for international music group The Vamp during their concert here in Manila.
Donny Pangilinan, 19 Famous parents: Maricel Laxa and Antony Pangilinan
The MYX VJ plays the piano and is learning how to play the guitar and has the moves to standout on the dance floor. Donny's family had thought his VJ plans were only a hobby until he tried it and found out he's good at it and loves the job.
Angelina Montano, 15 Famous parents: actors Sunshine Cruz and Cesar Montano
Not everyone knows that her dad was a folk singer before he ventured into acting. That's on top of the musical talent that runs on her mother's side. Angeline humbly admits she's relatively new to singing in public compared to her two younger sisters.
Gabriel Lazaro, 18 Famous parent: actor Ronnie Lazaro
As a front man for his band OPUS weekend, Gabriel is a promising singer-songwriter who fell in love with music, thanks to his father's guitar. He has already done cameos in indie films, but says he isn't that comfortable (yet) acting in front of the camera.
Gwen Guck, 15 Famous parents: Actress Jaclyn Jose and musician Kenneth Ilagan of '90s bands The Dawn and True Faith
The shy half-brother of Andi Eigenmann sees a career in journalism or law. However, Gwen admits a showbiz future has entered his mind, either that or a career in music. He has just learned to play the guitar this year, but he is already a natural.
A basketball fan like his dad and dubbed as the next 'Gwapings' (like his uncle Jomari), Jaime has the talent, though, if he decides to pursue acting or music if he decides to join showbiz. He was part of his school's theater club's productions.
Ara Dabao, 19 Famous parents: actors Ricky Davao and Jacki Lou Blanco
Three generations of talent running in the family is enough for Ara to have a showbiz career, but she's not yet sure about it. As a child, she would record and host her "own talk show," which her dad had just recently discovered on their old computer. Her sister, Rikki Mae, is also interested in showbiz.
Leila Alcasid, 19 Famous parents: actor, singer-songwriter Ogie Alcasid and beauty queen-turned-florist Michelle Van Eimeren
Leila is currently taking her shot at stardom in the local showbiz industry as a model and singer, which wasn't part of her life plan. She's a stunner like her mom and people couldn't help but notice her resemblance to Hollywood singer-actress Selena Gomez.
