While most people spent the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) period at home with their family, Gab Valenciano has been working hard as a frontliner helping organize feeding programs and distributing relief goods and supplies in different parts of the country.

In an earlier post on his Instagram account, the 32-year-old son of Gary Valenciano admitted that prior to the lockdown, he would frequently experience anxiety attacks and high blood pressure. He cited stress and lack of sleep as major factors. Gab admitted he was 15 pounds underweight and going out almost every night.

He said, “To put it plainly, I didn’t take care of myself both physically and mentally. Body weight has always been one of my greatest insecurities.” Gab admitted he decided to change his mindset and live a healthier lifestyle which included a strict workout routine. Last year, the talented artist revealed that he had already attempted suicide twice while going through depression.


On his Instagram account last July 15, Gab, shared his thoughts after going back to work with his parents, whom he has been practicing social distancing with even if they live in the same home. The talented dancer and actor revealed what he was still most thankful for in times of global pandemic.

He wrote, “First shoot with dad during this pandemic, super grateful, but still a bit sad. One of the things I hate most about all this is the fact that I haven’t hugged my parents since this whole thing started last March. Considering that my dad is a diabetic, we practice very strict social distancing even when we see each other at home, or in this case, work. It makes you think a lot about the word, ‘value’. Prior to the lockdown, was I a good son? A good brother? A good friend? A good person in general? It would all go to waste if we somehow don’t come out of all this better than we were before. I can’t wait for the day I get to run to my parents and just hug them and tell them how much I love them. My silver lining? My family, as always.”
