Aside from being active outdoors, Ian is also in touch with his artistic side. He must have gotten his love for painting from his father, Roy Veneracion who is also a painter. Ian has held his own painting exhibits.
5. He is a loving husband and father
Ian married Pam Gallardo in 1994 when he was 22 years old. They have two sons and a daughter. Ian has been vocal about not wanting his kids to enter show business because he said he wants them to have their own adventure and avoid the “padrino” culture.
