Filipino actor. He was born on November 5, 1963, in San Juan. Gabby is the son
of Lourdes Arellano and Rolando Concepcion. He was a famous kin of Juan Arellano,
who is a national artist for architecture. He helped create several landmarks
in Manila such as the Metropolitan Theater and Post Office. He was Gabby’s

of Close-Up. This incident led him in becoming a movie actor. He eventually became
a Regal baby and starred in the movie Katorse, which acquired him the title of
matinee idol. He was also paired with megastar Sharon Cuneta whom he married in
1984. But their marriage didn’t last for long and eventually was annulled.

hits. Aside from Sharon, he also co-starred some of the big names in show business
like Christopher de Leon, Janice de Belen, Vilma Santos , Lorna Tolentino, Maricel
Soriano , and Nora Aunor in a lot of films.

Gabby Concepcion’s vocation was stopped abruptly when he was involved
in 1994 Manila Filmfest Scandal. The announced winners were Gabby Concepcion
for Best Actor and Ruffa Gutierrez as Best Actress for the movie Loreta, even
if the reality is that Edu Manzano and Aiko Melendez should have gathered the
awards for her movie Maalaala Mo Kaya the Movie. It was Gabby Concepcion’s
manager Lolit Solis who attempted to maneuver the results of the awards.

Gabby left the industry in 1995 and migrated to the United States. He then
he took up a management information degree in Lincoln University in order to
land a much better job. Eventually, he became a triumphant multi-awarded accredited
realtor in California. He seemed to be at ease with his work and family living
in United States; but, in early 2008, Gabby surprised everyone by making a comeback
in Philippine showbiz and signing a contract under the management of ABS-CBN.
He initially appeared in Maalaala Mo Kaya and co-stars with Claudine Barretto
in a TV series called Iisa Pa Lamang. He has an initial 7-year contract with
ABS-CBN; and if it is his luck, then his Philippine comeback would be a success.

Gabby Concepcion has 4 children, namely, Kristina Cassandra, or KC Concepcion
, who is his daughter to commercial model and actress megastar Sharon Cuneta.
Gabrielle is his daughter with Grace Ibuna. Model actress Jenny Syquia also
has a daughter with Gabby named Chloe. Lastly, there is Samantha Alexis, who
is his daughter to his current spouse Genevieve Yatco Gonzales.

Surely, a lot fans have missed Gabby Concepcion in the movie scene. It is rumored
that they he will team up again with the Megastar . When she was asked about
doing a film with his ex-husband, she said that she has no issues with the matter.
But if it will be for a love team-up once again, this certainly would not be
a great idea, for lot of fans got affected with the breakup; and more intrigues
will rise if they pursue it.
