Aarón Díaz and his family were on hand to help Pope Francis celebrate his 81st birthday on December 17. The Mexican actor, his wife and their two daughters made some life-long memories during their recent visit to the Vatican. Aarón took to his Instagram on Sunday, December 17, to reflect on the trip. “This weekend was unforgettable for my family and I,” he penned. “Some of the feelings that are most important to point out are love, tenderness, respect towards others, peace and union. I hope one day you all will be blessed with this.”
Aarón, who is married to singer/actress Lola Ponce, documented some of the special moments on social media. The Quantico star shared a video of his two daughters, Erin, four, and Regina, three, sitting on his lap, while watching the Pope being seranded by young children. “Walking in the Light of God,” he captioned the video of himself holding his little girls.
Lola also took to her Instagram to share a few shots from the trip, including one of Aarón and their two girls. “😍❤️ Mi todo... @aarondiaz#vatican,” she captioned the post, which translates to "my everything." The 40-year-old opera singer praised the beauty of the historic landmark writing: "One of the most blessed days of my life…#vaticano #grateful." Lola also celebrated the birthday boy with a video of the Pope, which she captioned: "🙏🏻💫❤️ Thank you for existing @pontifex_es ✨ LUZ #happybirthday#contemplation#grateful#justlove."
Aarón and his family call Italy their second home. In August, the actor revealed that life on the road has helped his two little girls understand their famous parents’ careers. “My wife is an opera singer and we spend a lot of time in Italy. Last year we were there for seven months straight and they were with us, obviously so they’re you know from one city to another,” he told HOLA! USA. “Up on stage. Off the stage. From here to there. They watch me on television. So yeah, they definitely know what we do.”
Aarón continued: “I think they think all parents do that. They are at that age right now where they don’t exactly know what’s going on [laughs] but they love it and you know they have two artist parents so they’re definitely artistic, whatever it is they’re going to do but it opens up a whole different world for kids that are so young and are living that type of lifestyle it’s, I think it’s a blessing.”
