Now that all eyes are on him, Sebastian “Baste” Duterte, son of president-elect Rodrigo Duterte, has undoubtedly become a social media celebrity if not an overnight sensation.
Everyone now recognizes Baste. Others even have a crush on him. Although still secretive about his personal affairs, 28-year-old Baste, thankfully, is not a snob. He replies to those who leave comments under his public posts on Facebook.
Baste has a five-year-old daughter and a two-year-old son, from different partners. However, he has been living together with the mom of his son for three years now.
Baste’s son, Yair, celebrated his second birthday last June 11. The boy’s mother is Kate Necesario. Kate was featured in FHM Philippines’ April 2011 issue when she was 18. Duterte’s eldest son, Pulong, who’s the vice mayor of Davao City, recently posted a photo of Baste, his son and the mom, during the boy’s second birthday party.
