It’s been more than two decades since the late matinee idol Rico Yan left following his sudden demise.
While some fans have eventually to accept his untimely death, there are still those constantly think about “What could have been?” given he was at his prime when he died at a young age of 27.
Yan died of cardiac arrest resulting from hemorrhagic pancreatitis at the Dos Palmas Resort in Puerto Princesa, Palawan in March 2002.
But just recently, fans came across photos of the Rico Yan’s nephew on social media, with most of them taking notice of the uncanny resemblance between the late actor and his nephew.
Fans did their research and found out that the young guy is Alfonso ‘Alfy’ Yan-Tueres, the son of the late heartthrob’s sister Geraldine.
Some fans even started calling Alfy Rico Yan’s “mini me” while others described him as “Little Rico Yan.”
Others even feel like Rico Yan reincarnated in the form of Alfy.
“Parang nabuhay uli si rico yan .. kamukhang kamuka mo tlaga sya,” wrote one fan.
Meanwhile, others expressed their desire to see Alfy enter the world of show business.
“Pasok na sa showbiz Alfy at sundan mo ang yapak ni Tito Rico Yan mo,” another fan wrote.
