Even an action star has to baby-sit! Ian with Draco, 3, and Deirdre, six months at the time of this YES! July 2001 shoot.


Ian Veneracion, action star, and Pamela Gallardo, a non-showbiz person, married in 1994. Four years later, Tristan Draco was born. Another two-and-a-half years after, Deirdre followed.


Daddy says he got the name Draco, a polar constellation, through the Internet. “Tapos napanood ko nun yung Dragon Heart. Ang pangalan ng dragon dun Draco, which is named after the constellation, meaning dragon. Kaya ayun.”


Then Pam thought Draco should have another name. “Para lang may choice daw siya kung gusto niya palitan,” he smiles. “Pero ayoko sana. Gusto ko Draco lang. Sinama namin Tristan. Pangalan ni Brad Pitt sa Legends of the Fall.”


Of the name Deirdre, he has this to say: “Yung iba pino-pronounce ’yan as deer-drop, yung iba dee-dri, yung iba dee-drey. Sa akin d-dri. Ayun, optional!” he laughs.


“’Pag naghahanap ako ng baby names nagtitingin ako sa movie credits. Yung mga characters; hindi yung tunay na pangalan, ha? Usually kasi magaganda mga pangalan nila. Magagaling kasi mag-isip ng mga pangalan, mga imbento, ang directors.”
