Those who lived through the 90s would know how phenomenal the Gwapings--Mark Anthony Fernandez, Jomari Yllana, and Eric Fructuoso--were.

The trio's undeniable charm had earned them magazine covers, two movies titled Gwapings: The First Adventure (1992) and Gwapings Dos (1993), and a TV show Gwapings Live! (1992) that aired on GMA-7.

They turned 'How Gee' into a dance craze, and Mickey Mouse band-aids a trend.

When Mark left the group, some fans were so distraught that there were even news of suicide.

Fast forward to 2016, and all three guys are now dads!

Another thing common to them: they all have sons.

Have you seen these young boys? Gosh, you'll be reminded of Gwapings.

Grae Cameron and Rudolf Benedict Fernandez

Mark Anthony's eldest entered the world of showbiz as a Star Magic Artist and a member of the boy group Gimme 5.

Now 15 years old, he has so far starred in Kapamilya shows Bagito, Luv U, and the 2015 remake of Pangako Sa 'Yo.

Meanwhile, Grae has a baby brother who is also a gwaping. He is two years old.

Jomari and Aiko Melendez's 17-year-old son is also a Star Magic talent.

He already appeared on television in 2013, but chose to prioritize his studies.

Now that he's already in senior high school, is he ready to be the next big thing in the industry?

Here he is with his dad and sister Marthena.
