LOOK: Jericho Rosales’ son Santino graduates from high school
Jericho Rosales attended son Santino’s high school graduation along with former partner Kai Palomares.
Rosales was evidently excited as he took time to interview school and cafeteria staff to give a message to his 17-year-old son.
One school staff member, a certain Ate Julie, said they would miss Santino: “Ambait nyo pa naman (you’re so kind),” she shared. Other staff revealed that he had a fondness for taho.
“Dad’s very proud,” Rosales wrote in an Instagram post of his son in his graduation garb, photogenic and naturally dashing, just like his father.
According to Palomares, their son will pursue higher education. “He will be off to university in a few months to continue pursuing his dreams & passion,” she shared on social media.

“I will never stop cheering you in all the roads that you want to take in life,” she said.
Palomares also thanked Rosales and his wife, Kim Jones, “For making our son’s family whole in the best modern way which all know how to do!”
Jones joined a celebratory meal after with Santino’s extended family.
Rosales has previously asserted that he would prefer his son to veer away from showbiz.
“I have a dream for him and it’s not show business. I want him to be an Olympian,” he said last December on “Tonight with Boy Abunda”, explaining that his son loves sports. Aside from playing football, Santino has dabbled in modeling.
The supportive dad also said that they are constantly mistaken as brothers and considers himself “Saint’s” barkada. JB
