9 Crazy Rich Kids of the Philippines You Can Find on Instagram
Whether you love to hate them or are just plain curious, there's no denying you can't resist seeing the lives of the one percent. Which is why, we've put together a list of the new generation of Filipino rich kids. From familiar faces to old rich scions, here are the rich kids you should know.
KC del Rosario
You can't have a crazy rich kids list without KC del Rosario. After all, being the daughter of Brunei's Prince Jefri Bolkiah and Filipino wife Evangeline del Rosario makes her a royal in her own right. And, she documents it all on her Instagram where she posts everything, from her opulent Forbes Park mansion and pet tiger cubs to her many travels.
The daughter of actress Gretchen Barretto with business tycoon Tonyboy Cojuangco has been in many headlines, on magazine covers, and more, that she practically needs no introduction. Her rich kid highlight reel includes being a part of Le Bal des Débutantes and having access to her mother's collection of Hermès, Chanel, and Goyard luggage and bags.
Daniel Miranda recently made the headlines for his relationship with actress Sofia Andres, but people focused on his family background as a Lhuillier. As an old-money scion, Miranda is reportedly an heir to the country's largest pawnshop chain Cebuana Lhuillier Pawnshop. On his own, however, he is a racer and has raced internationally in countries like Singapore, Indonesia, Macau, and more.
The Zobel family is known for being quite low-key, so peeking inside the usually private world of the clan through Instagram is an experience. And we have Rocio Zobel to thank for that. Zobel is the youngest daughter of Inigo Zobel (he ranked 18th on Forbes' Philippines 50 Richest 2020) and Maricris Cardenas-Zobel. On her Instagram, we get a look at the Zobel family's vacation houses, international properties, and even old family photos.
For a rich kid list, we had to have a real kid. That's where Alily Laude, the daughter of Philip and Small Laude, comes in. Through her parents, Laude gets to experience all the perks of being the child of entrepreneurs, including expensive real estate, Chanel handbags, and more.
Sandro Marcos, the son of Bongbong Marcos and Liza Araneta-Marcos, has been a mainstay on rich kid lists for years. While the Marcoses' ill-gotten wealth is known all over, it's a little known fact that he's descended from one of the wealthiest families in the country through his mother.
Dian Serranilla's name may not be familiar to you, but you may know her better as the Mall of Asia Arena debutante. In case you don't remember, she infamously celebrated her 18th birthday at the 15,000-capacity arena. According to PEP.ph's estimates, she probably spent P4.7 million to throw the party. Since then, she hasn't stopped her rich kid ways—attending the Royal Ascot, showing the inside of her huge closet, and, of course, uploading obligatory plane photos.
Manny Pacquiao's son Jimuel doesn't hold back when it comes to flexing. From his first car (an P8.5 million Chevrolet Corvette, to be exact) to his shoe collection, Pacquiao has shared it all and more.
Instead of riding on the P6.5 billion coattails of father port tycoon Mikee Romero, Milka Romero has carved a path of her own as a restaurateur. She opened her first restaurant at 19 years old, and now, she has a food and beverage empire made up of Sushi Nori, Ms. Gee, Drynk, Desserts By Yelo Yelo, and Wow Wok.
