Andi Eigenmann and Jake Ejercito Share Sweet Messages for Daughter Ellie’s Birthday

Andi Eigenmann and Jake Ejercito have been co-parenting Ellie, dividing time between Siargao and Manila.

Ellie Eigenmann is slowly growing up into a fine, young lady! On Wednesday, November 23, Ellie’s parents Andi Eigenmann and Jake Ejercito shared their birthday greetings for Ellie.

Andi to Ellie: I’m here for you all the way

Posting a reel of Ellie’s years, Andi wrote: “Happy birthday to this little lady. The past 11 years of my life have been golden because you are in it.”

“Hoping it’s even just half as amazing for you. I am here for you all the way, my girl 4 life! Momma loves you, Ellie.”

Jake also posted a greeting for his daughter. “Daigdig ko. Happy birthday.”

Co-parenting Ellie

While Andi and Jake’s relationship didn’t work out, the two have figured out a way to set aside their issues to co-parent Ellie. Last year, both Jake and Andi even had a birthday party for Ellie.

Ellie has also adjusted to her life in Siargao along with her siblings and has made so many friends on the island.

“She made so many friends, it was so easy for her to understand and learn the language. And I love that about her—how she’s like a chameleon. It’s so easy for her to blend into the lifestyle and the people here, whether the locals or other kids like her who have just moved from other countries or Manila,” Andi said of Ellie during her interview with Modern Parenting in 2021.

“And when she’s there with her dad, she’s doing whatever she wants. Just adapting and enjoying her family there. She just likes both worlds.”
