Alex Damian Santos is an American celebrity kid. The lad, who is now a full-grown man aged 22 years old, did not earn fame as an entertainer or by doing any outstanding stuff, but as a result of being born to a parent who is a celebrity. He instead became famous through his father who is a popular American musician. Outside of that, he lives a regular life like every other American.
Alex Damian Santos’ Background and Family Life
The celebrity kid was born in the year 2000 in the United States of America. However, the exact day and month of his birth are unknown and so are a number of other information about him. Although he is well known, the majority of the personal details of Alex Santos are not available.
Similarly, not much is known about Alex’s mother. Samantha Medina has done a great job at keeping her personal life off social media despite being associated with her son’s father who is a popular singer. She and Romeo had their child at a very young age and there is no proof that they ever got married after that. They are not together currently either. Because she keeps her life very private, one cannot tell whether or not she is currently married to another man. Also, details about her career, past and present are not available.
Alex’s father, on the other hand, is the most popular member of the family because of the nature of his career. Regarding the birth of Alex, he once confessed that he was only seventeen when they had him and he had abandoned Samantha and ran away for about two years before he resurfaced. He seems to have taken responsibility since then, and Alex currently lives under his care.
The 22 years old has a younger brother named Valentino with whom he shares a father. There are speculations that Valentino’s mother is another lady whom Romeo was dating at the time he posted about the birth of his second child on Instagram. He has since taken down the post which he made on the 27th of March 2019, and there is no news about the state of his romantic relationship as he has chosen to keep that off the media.
Santos’ Education and Career Path
Despite being a celebrity kid, Alex Damian Santos has no personal career in the entertainment industry or anywhere else, at least none for now. However, he has been seen on the cover of magazines with his father and is also reported to love Bachata music just like him. Still, it is not clear whether the young boy intends to follow his father’s footsteps, or whether he will follow a totally different path.
In the meantime, he is reported to still be a student and is completely focused on his studies. However, there are no details about where he is schooling or what course he is studying. Also, he is not very active on social media, but he has a Twitter account with a few posts and a few hundred followers.
Alex Damian Santos’ Father Romeo is Known for Singing Bachata
Most commonly known as Romeo Santos, Anthony Santos is an American singer, actor, and father of Alex Damian Santos. He was the lead vocalist for Aventura, a popular American Bachata band. He started to produce hit singles and albums after the band parted ways.
Anthony was born on the 21st of July 1981 in New York City, to a Dominican father and a Puerto Rican mother. The middle-class family loved music a lot, and this inspired Romeo’s career choice as a musical artist. At age thirteen, he joined a church choir where he discovered his vocal skills. From there, he started to nurse the dream of becoming a singer. Although he loves both his parents, he is closer to his mother who was a housewife. His father, on the other hand, worked at a construction site.
Romeo Earned His Music Breakthrough in 1991
The music star started his career by forming a local group called ‘Los Teenagers’ which mostly performed in the streets and later became popular among Dominican-American youth in New York City. In 1991, the group of young talents found their breakthrough after a record label, Platinum Latin signed them on for a deal. Later that year, they released Generation Next, their first music album, after changing their name to Aventura. Although their first album did not do very well in the market, it served the good purpose of bringing them to the public’s eyes. Their unique singing style, traditional base music with a blend of pop and hip-hop, also helped to make them noticeable.
Bringing them even more into the limelight was their second album in 2002 titled We Broke the Rules. By 2004, Obsesion, one of the songs in their second album, made its way into the mainstream music scene, and with that, the group became New York’s top music group. The song further took them beyond New York and to other European countries, including France, Italy, and Germany. After their major breakthrough, the band released five more albums, and many of their songs made waves in the music industry. Anthony, who was the lead vocalist, wrote most of the songs.
Anthony Romeo Santos is Now a Solo Singer and an Actor
The band later went on break in 2011 but returned in 2014 to perform at concerts. They were around for about two years before its members went on to continue working on individual projects. Anthony released his first single ‘You’ in May of 2011, the year he announced that he wanted to do some solo songs. The song was one of the songs in his debut album, Formula Volume 1.
He has since continued to ride solo and make good music, both hit singles, and albums. He has also featured many great artists like Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Carlos Santana in his songs. Aside from music, Romeo is also an actor. He featured in Furious 7 and voiced a character in The Angry Birds Movie.
