72 kids, 1 Dad: Padilla, Revilla, Estrada, Salvador and Quizon

Jose Padilla, Sr.

"Museo de Padilla." This is how action star Robin Padilla will call a museum dedicated to his genealogy -- a plan he revealed in an April 2015 press conference. There's a good reason why Padilla wants to organize his family tree, what with many of its branches finding careers in showbiz and politics.

Robin is a grandson of Jose Padilla, Sr., who was governor and congressman of Bulacan in the 1930s. Reports say the senior Padilla has more than a dozen children, among them actors Pempe (Jose Padilla, Jr.) and Carlos, Sr.; diplomat Amado; and Roy, Sr., a former governor and Robin's father.

Roy, Sr. is also the father of actor Rommel, making superstar heartthrob Daniel Padilla his grandson and a nephew to Robin. Carlos, Sr. had a son, Carlos, Jr. or Sonny, who was the father of singer Zsa Zsa Padilla, making her a second cousin of Daniel.

Lou Salvador, Sr.

"Hindi ka maniwala, [noong] nabuo kami, 102 kami. Bale, 49 mothers," actor Phillip Salvador said of his paternal siblings in a 2014 PEP.ph interview. (Ninety-seven, according to a 2014 Inquirer report.)

His father, late basketball player and film director Lou Salvador, Sr., died in 1973 aged 67. Notably, another son, Lou Salvador, Jr., was dubbed "The James Dean of the Philippines" in the '50s.

The senior Salvador is also the father of late actor Ross Rival, making him the grandfather of "Bridges of Love" star Maja Salvador. TV host Kris Aquino's son with Phillip, Joshua, is similarly a Salvador grandson.


The late film icon, Rodolfo Vera Quizon in real life, had 18 children with six women, among them celebrities Eric, Ronnie, Epi, Vandolph and Zia. Dolphy was 83 when he passed away in 2012.

Ramon Revilla, Sr.

Isang dugo sila." This was how writer Portia Ilagan, a former spokesperson of Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla, Jr., once described the action star and his famously big and controversial clan.

His father, Ramon Revilla, Sr., himself a former film star and senator, fathered 72 children with 16 different women, according to Ilagan in a 2011 interview. Thirty-eight of his children are officially acknowledged and carry his surname.

Born Jose Acuna Bautista, the senior Revilla welcomed his youngest child, Abigail, in 1996. She is an aunt to Cavite Vice Governor Jolo Revilla, one of Bong's kids, who is eight years older than her.

All of Revilla's children attend his birthday celebrations, according to Ilagan. This unity is now apparent as the 88-year-old remains under intensive care, after being hospitalized over the weekend due to pneumonia and metabolic disorder.

Revilla is not the only local celebrity who is known for his big kin. In photos, here are other showbiz patriarchs, deceased and living, who have more than 10 children each.

Joseph Estrada

The 78-year-old former president and incumbent Manila mayor has 12 children with six women, according to a 2012 Inquirer report. Notably, his first child, Jinggoy, followed in his footsteps; he was an action star before joining politics.
