4 Oct – After keeping mum regarding the paternity of her daughter Ellie Belle, actress Andi Eigenmann finally decided to break her silence.
As reported on PEP News, on 30 September, Eigenmann released her media statement via agency, Viva Artists Agency, which read:
“Recent events have put my daughter, Ellie, into the limelight with the media, netizens, and strangers questioning who her father is.
“I made a conscious choice to not talk about the paternity of my daughter in order to protect the privacy of Ellie. Although she was born into a showbiz family, as a mother, I would like to shield her from the intrigues and gossip that are part of this industry.
“Growing up, Ellie knew who her father was and he has been there for her, and that’s all that matters. I hope this will put the issue to rest, out of concern for my very young daughter.”
“I’m requesting everyone to respect the privacy of Ellie,” she added.
Previously, Eigenmann’s half-sister Maxene revealed to Mo Twister on his podcast that Jake Ejercito is not just being nice to Ellie due to his previous romance with Eigenmann, but because he is her biological father.
Meanwhile, Ejercito also finally decided to make his real relationship with daughter Ellie public in a new Instagram post, that read: “You’ve only brought good things to my life and I promise to do the same to you a hundredfold. Know that everything has been and will always be for you. And that I will hold your hand the whole way through.”
