Santino Rosales, the 19-year-old son of Jericho Rosales, recently signed a contract under Viva Artist Agency (VAA) for hosting, modeling and endorsement projects.
He also looks forward to meeting his crush Nancy McDonie of Momoland.
In an interview, Santino answered “No naman,” when asked if it is hard to be the son of Jericho Rosales, who is known as a multi-awarded actor in the entertainment industry. He explained that they both know how to bridge the gap between them.
“I wouldn’t say so because… especially when we were together we know where to bridge the gap between whatever happens in his work, whatever happens in my work and what we have together as father and son. And I don’t really think that I’ve ever got a hard time of doing that,” he said
Unlike his father, Santino seems to be very formal in speech.
“He’s a very comedic person. I’d like to say that I do have that side also within me but it’s only a matter of time before I show people that side of me,” he said
During the interview, he was also asked if he ever asked his dad for advice about girls.
Santino replied: “Wala naman. Mom and dad they just really let me be because they truly believe in me. Kasi ako naman, I always try to respect everyone that I meet (girls),”
He also admitted that while he has a crush on Nancy McDonie of Momoland, he still won’t consider a showbiz project even if it means working with her. However, he looks forward to meeting her.
“That’s something I can’t answer on the spot. Just because for a person, I wouldn’t really bend my plans too much,” he said
“I look forward to meeting her, that’s for sure,” he added
Meanwhile, Viva Artist Agency (VAA) welcomed Santino as their new artist.
“They were very welcoming and I didn’t really feel nervous at all. They made it a point to show that they really care and it’s a very nice privilege to be working with them,” he said
