Personal life and careerEdit

Domagoso is one of Isko Moreno and his wife Diana Lynn Ditan's five children. He is named after his paternal grandfather.[8]

In 2019, Domagoso signed a contract with GMA Artist Center (now Sparkle) and became a semi-regular cast of the defunct variety show Studio 7.[9] He later became a mainstay in All-Out Sundays since 2020.

In 2021, Domagoso was paired with Cassy Legaspi in the romantic comedy series First Yaya[10] and its continuation, First Lady.

Then twenty-year-old Domagoso and social media personality girlfriend Raffa Castro, daughter of actor-turned-broadcast journalist Diego Castro and sister of actress Claire Castro, welcomed their son Scott Angelo on April 28, 2022, named after the childhood nickname of Domagoso's father Isko Moreno and Castro's late grandfather Angelo Castro Jr. The news was initially reported by Cristy Fermin and later confirmed by Philippine Entertainment Portal in late June 2022, two months after Castro gave birth. Domagoso was reportedly hands-on during Castro's pregnancy and kept the pregnancy private from the public eye during his father's campaign for the 2022 presidential elections, though Domagoso has never denied earlier rumors and had initially expressed intention to publicly reveal the identity of the child. Domagoso and Castro's relationship and parenthood are supported by their respective parents.[11][12][13][14]

In November 2022, Domagoso won the Best Actor award for his performance in That Boy In The Dark, directed by Adolf Alix Jr., at the 16th Toronto Film and Script Awards in Toronto, Canada.[15]
