Whether we admit or not, it has become a trend and an unintentional culture in showbiz, that the children of the first-generation movie and television icons take the opportunity to enter the limelight. Many of the celebrity children who made most out of their inborn fame have sharpened their skills in the world of modeling and acting.
With loyal fans who have been around since the era of these celebrity kids’ parents, a welcome party to the world of teleseryes and prime-time shows is never out of order. But not all celebrity kids choose to follow their parents’ footsteps in the world of glitz and glamour, some have directed themselves in a different career path or a more private life.
Here are the 10 celebrity kids that chose to shy away from the cameras:
Juliana Marie Beatrice T. Gomez is the unica hija of actor Richard Gomez and model-turned-politician Lucy Torres. She’s appeared on billboard and print commercials of retail brand Bench and has a huge fan-base of her own through her social media accounts.
Without the need to involve herself on mainstream television, her frequent travel posts and trendy looks has earned her a loyal following.
Santino Gabriel P. Rosales is the son of actor Jericho Rosales and model Kai Palomares. He’s been in a commercial with her father before. But it seems that Jericho’s mini-me has no plans of taking on acting. In a previous interview from a media outlet, he shared his sentiments on the matter, “I mean, ever since I was a young kid, I knew that I didn’t want to get into showbiz because I knew how hassle it is and how tight the schedule is, and I can’t handle that because I have other priorities in life”.
He’s veered his interests to modeling and appearing on social events. On his spare time, he indulges himself in football and plays defense for Kaya Football Club’s under 17 team and his school team, Colegio San Agustin in Makati.
Hannah Kathleen L. Pangilinan is the daughter of actress Maricel Laxa and Anthony Pangilinan. She is the third child among the five siblings and a year younger than Donny Pangilinan.
Like her big brother Donny, Hannah has been making buzz online too. Hannah’s a dedicated Youtuber and loves creating video content based on beauty and travel. It’s safe to say that the young Pangilinan has earned fame by her own means.
At first glimpse, Maxine could easily be mistaken as Janine Gutierrez. But Maxine is actually the youngest among the three daughters of actors Ramon Christopher Gutierrez and Lotlot de Leon. But it seems like she has no plans of entering showbiz, Maxine often posts of her travels abroad or out-of-town beach trips.
She’s also a big concert fan, ticking her attendance to big concert tickets such as the recent Coldplay concert.
I know you'll see this even if you don't have an instagram 😊 Happy happy Father's day, papa!! Thank you for everything you've done for us. Thank you for bringing me to Burger King or McDo when it's midnight and I'm super hungry. Thank you for not getting mad at me when I'm being baliw and thank you, for watching the 1d movies with me hahaha. I love you so much, papa!! (Even if sometimes I'm super masungit and won't stop cleaning) ❤️
Andres Muhlach is one of the twins of actors Aga Muhlach and Charlene Gonzales. He’s been on television commercials with his twin sister, Atasha, during his younger years.
These days, the twins have been particularly quiet when it comes to the showbiz spotlight. However, given his modele-sque looks, it wouldn’t be a surprise to find him on television one of these days.
Atasha, just like twin brother Andres, has had her taste of the spotlight when they starred in a television commercial. But since their debut on-screen, Aga and Charlene’s daughter has been quite mum. She is nevertheless an active athlete at school.
While many fans of Charlene are hopeful that Atasha follows her mother’s footsteps in beauty pageants, Charlene hasn’t shared any opinions on having her daughter as a possible future beauty queen.
Robert Vincent Anthony C. Jaworski III, or “Robbie”, is the eldest among the three sons of Actress-Olympian Mikee Cojuangco and PBA player-turned-politician Robert Jaworski Jr.
Just like his parents, he’s got passion for sports too. Robbie however has chosen to follow a private life, making minimal appearances in anything showbiz-related.
After a few days out of town with the team, Robbie and the boys are finally back safely. They didn't bring home the championship trophy but worked hard, played hard, and had a great time. Big thanks to the coaches and managers, the parents who watched, cheered and kept us updated, and also to the ISAC basketball organizers. Congratulations to the winning teams and to the athletes who made All-ISAC which I am happy to share Robbie was a part of. Praise, thanks and glory to God!
Margaret “Magui” Fiona F. Planas is the daughter of Kapamilya actress-host Karla Estrada and Mike Planas. She is the younger sister of Daniel Padilla.
Because of her brother’s popularity, Magui has a fans club called “Maguinatics” despite not being in show business. Although she has an advantage having a huge fan-base, Magui shows no signs of involving herself in acting.

Arabella B. Davao is the youngest daughter of actors Jackie Lou Blanco and Ricky Davao. Ara’s been passed-down good looks from her parents, but this Davao isn’t making frequent appearances on television.
She is however an adventure junkie, trekking the hair-raising activities of places like Masungi Georeserve.
Kobe Lorenzo F. Paras is the youngest son of PBA legend Benjie Paras to his first wife Jackie Forster. He has been enlisted as a Viva talent and has made television commercial appearances with brands like Cherifer. He’s a frequent commercial model buddy of his older brother, Andre.
But a few years ago, Kobe made a conscious decision to follow his father’s footsteps, in basketball rather than in acting. Kobe established himself as one of the best basketball players of his age. He was part of the Philippine national team who competed in the 2013 SEABA Under-16 Championship and 2014 FIBA Asia Under-18 Championship. He also represented the Philippines in a 3×3 basketball match at the 2013 and 2015 FIBA 3×3 Under-18 World Championship.
