Ian Veneracion (born as Stephen Ian López Veneración on February 7, 1975) is a Spanish-Filipino sportsperson, television and film actor.
He was a former talent of GMA Network and is currently an artist of ABS-CBN.
Today, Kapamilya actor Ian Veneracion is considered one of the most charming dads in the local industry. By the age of 42, yet still looking good.
Tristan Draco is one of Veneracion’s three kids with wife Pam Gallardo. He is the eldest son of ABS-CBN actor Ian Veneracion.
The lookalike father-son duo was seen together in some photos posted on Instagram. Draco’s photos are currently going viral on social media sites.
There’s no doubt that Draco inherited his genes from his father and that he bore a striking resemblance to his dad.
Here are a few interesting things about Ian’s son named Draco:
1. Draco is 18-year old son of Ian. He’s the eldest of three siblings. He was followed by the only daughter, Deidre, 15. The youngest is nine-year-old Buccio.
2. He is taking up a Bachelor’s Degree in Legal Management at the De La Salle University.
3. He was named after a polar constellation and a movie character. Ian explained he got the idea for his son’s name Tristan Draco after watching the fantasy movie Dragonheart (1996).
Ian said: “Ang pangalan ng dragon dun Draco, which is named after the constellation, meaning dragon. Kaya ayun.”
While Pam, Draco’s mother, had proposed an alternative name from another Hollywood movie titled Legends of the Fall (1994).
According to him: “Para lang may choice daw siya kung gusto niya palitan pero ayoko sana.”
“Gusto ko Draco lang. Sinama namin Tristan. Pangalan ni Brad Pitt sa Legends of the Fall.”
4. Draco is also into outdoor sports. He enjoys motorbiking, just like his father.
The father and son duo took a road trip to Sagada in the Mountain Province on their motorbikes.
The actor even posted their photo from that trip with the caption: “After a night in Sagada, I discovered the most beautiful road I’ve ever seen while following dirt-roads that aren’t on the maps. (Not even google maps!) Me and my boy Draco enjoying our bikes.”
5. Draco has picked up his dad’s interests in hiking, sailing, and snowboarding. His other siblings also enjoy the same.
