MANILA -- There's a new Yllana making a name in the world of showbiz.

Aiko Melendez and Jomari Yllana's 18-year-old son Andre has recently joined the Kapamilya teleserye "The Greatest Love."

According to Andre, being the son of celebrity parents is both a blessing and a challenge. "Natutuwa nga ako na parang, ay nakikilala na nila ako na anak ni Aiko pati ni Jomari. Napa-proud ako sa parents ko," he told Rated K.

"Kailangan bantay-sarado ako sa actions dahil isang maling magawa ko lang, pwedeng maapektuhan 'yung career ni Mommy, career ni Daddy," he added.

Andre also said he looks up to his mother more than his father, especially when it comes to playing drama roles.

Growing up, Andre wanted to join showbiz but he chose to finish his studies first. It was only after he graduated from high school that he formally joined show business.

Aside from acting and studying, Andre also like playing basketball and is interested in cars.
