Junior knows best: Barbara Mori with son, Sergio Jr in a ‘drink milk’ ad
Though Barbara Mori may be hot and sizzling up the screen with Hrithik Roshan in Kites, not many know that the Mexican actress has a 11-year-old son called Sergio Jr.
Her love child from Mexican actor Sergio Mayer, named Sergio Jr, was born in 1998. Barbara met the actor during her modelling days, when she was barely 20. They did not tie the knot and she moved on to acting in Mexican telenovellas and later, in movies.
Secret personal life
Barbara's personal life has been veiled in secrecy. The child is not accompanying her for the Mumbai shoot even though she landed in town with her mother, sister and brother."
Barbara and her son appeared in a 'drink milk' Hispanic ad campaign in 2007. Both mother and child sported a milk moustache. It was part of the 'Think Before You Drink' drive.
Milk is best
The model-turned-actress had agreed to be part of the campaign as she wanted to communicate to Hispanic women like her, the importance of drinking milk. She claimed that she had taught her son to drink milk at least three times a day.
Barbara was selected to star in Kites by producer Rakesh Roshan and director Anurag Basu as they wanted to provide the project with an international touch. She plays a Latino girl who is in love with an Indian, played by Hrithik.
