With family stats at 5:4:1, Steve’s life story would definitely rival those teleserye tear-jerkers. He is one of five children, coming from four different fathers and sharing one mother. The death of one of his mom’s partners let them with enough finances to live comfortably and have a good education. However, she became involved with another man who brought trouble into their family. This pushed them into leaving their hometown and seeking refuge in urban Manila, in an attempt to restore order into their lives. This seems to have worked with Steve, as he now has his own family, happily married and proud father of three.
