Like the troublesome son named Bernardo "Beri" Mabunga, the character he currently portrays in Pamilya Ko, Kiko Estrada revealed in an interview with Tonight with Boy Abunda last March what he went through in the darkest days of his life. Being a descendant of a well-known celebrity clan—the son of acclaimed actors Gary Estrada and Cheska Diaz and grandson of the esteemed veteran actor Paquito Diaz—Kiko opened up how the pressure of following their footsteps and live up to their family’s legacy in the entertainment industry pulled him into a state of depression. That time, the Kapamilya actor told us that he felt like “there was no point in waking up, there was no point in eating” and that he really “had no motivation at all” to continue living.

Fortunately, everything turned bright when former It’s Showtime GirlTrend member Devon Seron came to his life. In the same interview, Kiko shared that aside from his mom, Devon was the one who helped him become a better person. He met Devon when he attended his first acting workshop, as they both prepared for their roles in the drama series Angelito: Ang Bagong Yugto in 2012. They would then worked together in the 2017 film “Pwera Usog” and in the 2018 movie “Walwal.”
“She’s hope… She’s hope for me being a better person, she’s hope for me reaching my dreams,” Kiko says in describing how Devon means for him.

Although Kiko stated in the TWBA interview that the two of them are just exclusively dating, he recently admitted celebrating his first anniversary with Devon as a couple when he came back to the late night talk show last month for another interview. When asked if Devon is the woman he would love to marry, Kiko answers: “I do see her in my future and I hope she’s the one.”
