Ian Veneracion is a person who combines many things in one package. Among other things, he is an athlete, actor, singer, and media personality. He has built a successful career beyond the Philippines, which is his home country, and is now known in other parts of the world. Here are interesting things to learn about him.
Ian Veneracion’s Biography
Ian was born Stephen Ian López Veneración on February 7, 1975, in Manila, Philippines. He was raised by his father, Roy Veneracion, who is a painter, and his mother, Susan López-Veneración.
As a result of his father’s influence, Ian grew up with a love of art in general, and this became his motivation to learn music, paint and become an actor, which he began before he was seven years old.
He made his first appearance as a child actor in 1982 when he got a role in Joey and Son. In the same year he appeared in another production, Never Ever Say Goodbye, which was followed by Mang Kepweng and Son (1983), Di Bale Nalang, and Ako si Kiko, Ako si Kikay 1987 and One Two Bato Three Four Bapor (1989).
Until 2018, when he performed in Block Z and Wansapanataym Presents Iron Dad”, he had already appeared in more than eighty films and television series. Although he has made a name for himself in the Philippines with a good number of films, there are other films that have sold him to audiences worldwide.
As a result of his achievements as an actor, Ian has received many nominations and a number of awards. These include All-Time Favorite Actor at the 48th GMMSF Box-Office Entertainment Awards 2017, Best Male TV Personality at the 3rd Platinum Stallion Media Awards 2017, and Best Supporting Actor in Primetime Teleserye at the 7th NSCART Awards for his role in Pangako Sa ‘Yo in 2016.
In addition to acting, he is also a singer with a series of songs such as We’re All Alone and Through The Years, which he released in 2018. He has a license as a pilot and just like his father he also paints.
Parents and Family
The actor comes from a very small family consisting of his parents and his sister Rachael Veneracion, who is not as popular as other family members. As already mentioned, his father, born in 1947, is a highly respected and influential painter, and he had a father who was a lawyer and a mother who was the daughter of a mayor.
As for Ian’s mother, very little is known about her, as she is not interested in entertainment or other things that would make her public. The same is true of Rachael, who has also kept a life far from the public’s knowledge.
Who is Ian Veneracion’s Wife? His Children
Ian is not only a good-looking man, he definitely looks like one of those who seem to take up the challenge as he hardly catches up with them. For this reason, there are many people who keep asking if he has a wife or if he has gone out with a woman in the past.
It really becomes very interesting to note that he has not been in many relationships in the past. In fact, he has been with one woman, Pam Gallardo (now Pam Veneracion), all his life. Ian Veneracion and Pam, who had been together since he was 18 years old, decided to settle down as man and wife in 1997. At that time the versatile actor was only 22 years old.
Since then the two have remained very close. According to Ian, Pam is the only woman who suits him because she is able to fully understand the nature of his work and she is very supportive of the way she has come to balance her own work and family life. The two have become very close over the years, and the bond between them seems to be growing stronger.
Ian and Pam Veneracion have spent more than 20 years as a couple and have been blessed with three children. Their children include Tristan Draco Veneracion, Duccio Veneracion, and Deirdre Veneracion. Although he has achieved much, he still considers fatherhood one of his greatest achievements.
