It takes guts to be a Gutierrez. Really.
Former matinee idol and celebrity icon Eddie Gutierrez has been in the showbiz industry for decades. A prolific actor who usually plays a haciendero or other powerful figures, Eddie prefers not to be tied down by exclusively working with only a single network.
During the actor’s heyday in the ‘60s to the ‘80s, Eddie had the “gutz” to sire 8 children from 3 different women: actress Liza Lorena, singer Pilita Corrales, and actress Annabelle Rama. Of the three, he only married Annabelle, his persistent fan.
1. Annabelle Rama
Here are Eddie’s 6 children with Annabelle, the Philippines’ premiere mom-manager:
The oldest of the 6, Rocky also tried to get into the family business of acting. His filmography includes two films, both horror flicks. He made the headlines when he admitted to a vandalism incident in 2013.
Known for her legendary “maarte” way of speaking, Ruffa is Eddie’s “unica hija” or only daughter. She is a model and a former beauty queen whose marriage to a Turkish businessman made for tabloid fodder.
Also in the family business of acting, Elvis appeared in a couple of movies alongside his brothers. Although relatively obscure, his wedding in 2015 actually made news because he’s a Gutierrez, of course.
A prolific actor who takes after his dad, Richard is Annabelle’s most prominent talent. His engagement to Sarah Lahbati made the headlines because their relationship was marred with intrigue and was strongly opposed by Annabelle.
He stepped out of his brother’s shadow when he surprised everyone with his significant weight loss transformation. Although he occasionally acts, Raymond is more known as a TV host and entrepreneur.
Ritchie Paul Gutierrez
The youngest of the Gutierrez clan, Ritchie Paul is a bit actor and has appeared in three films. According to the IMDB website, he is also a composer.
2. Liza Lorena
Before Annabelle came into Eddie’s life, he had a son with former beauty queen and award-winning actress Liza Lorena in 1964. They separated after Tonton was born.
He has established himself as one of the better actors of his generation. Known for his role as Eduardo Buenavista in the drama “Pangako Sa’yo,” Tonton was quite dashing during the ‘90s.
3. Pilita Corrales
After his relationship with Liza, Eddie turned his attention to Pilita Corrales, dubbed “Asia’s Queen of Songs” for her talent. She gave birth to Ramon Christopher in 1971.

Another matinee idol just like his dad, Ramon Christopher has been making movies since the ‘80s as either the handsome lead or the dashing villain. With a daughter set to become a star herself, he now plays father roles.
