It’s hard to learn another language once you reach a certain age.
Although there are adults who are able to learn a different language, it usually takes perseverance and commitment in order to truly master a language that you did not grow up speaking.
When Claudine Barretto’s firstborn son, Santino Santiago, was shown speaking Ilonggo, this quickly attracted the attention of many netizens.
Santino is Claudine’s 10-year-old child with her estranged husband, Raymart. He was born on July 19, 2007 at The Medical City. His parents claim that his birth was the best gift they ever received.
Claudine and her sisters, Gretchen and Marjorie, grew up speaking Ilonggo. Although she has lived in Manila throughout most of her life, the actress has Ilonggo blood running through her veins.
This is evident with the video that she released on her Instagram account, caption with: “Abaw ga ilonngo na akong Bata,” followed by a series of heart emojis.
Many netizens expressed their admiration towards Santino, particularly those who speak the language. Here were some of their comments:
