Back in the 90s, (L-R) Mark Anthony Fernandez, Eric Fructuoso, and Jomari Yllana were best known as the iconic trio Gwapings.

Those who lived through the 90s would know how phenomenal the Gwapings--Mark Anthony Fernandez, Jomari Yllana, and Eric Fructuoso--were.

The trio's undeniable charm had earned them magazine covers, two movies titled Gwapings: The First Adventure (1992) and Gwapings Dos (1993), and a TV show Gwapings Live! (1992) that aired on GMA-7.

They turned "How Gee" into a dance craze, and Mickey Mouse band-aids a trend.

When Mark left the group, some fans were so distraught that there were even news of suicide.

Fast forward to 2016, all three guys are now daddies.

Another thing common to them: they all have sons.

Have you seen these young boys? Gosh, you'll be reminded of Gwapings.

Now 15 years old, he has so far starred in Kapamilya shows Bagito, Luv U, and the 2015 remake of Pangako Sa 'Yo.

He already appeared on television in 2013, but chose to prioritize his studies.

Now that he's already in senior high school, is he ready to be the next big thing in the industry?

Here he is with his dad and sister Marthena.

Frederick Fructuoso

Eric's eldest son tried his luck in the 2015 edition of Starstruck.

In an interview with the 17-year-old hopeful, he weighed in the pros and cons of having a celebrity dad.

"It's an advantage to be an anak ng artista kasi kilala ka na agad. Ang disadvantage, marami silang ine-expect sa iyo."

He didn't make it to the final 14, but hopes to become just like his dad in the near future.
