Andi Eigenmann and her partner, champion surfer Philmar Alipayo, have the most beautiful love story!
On the June 16 episode of "Magandang Buhay," the couple revealed that they first crossed paths during a surfing competition in Siargao.
The actress, who is a big fan of the sport, asked for a selfie with Philmar.
"Noong nakilala ko siya sa Siargao, nagpa-picture ako sa kanya," she said.
They became friends eventually. "Since maliit lang naman 'yung community doon, tapos magbabarkada-barkada din kami, both people from abroad, locals, at saka mga taga-Manila, magkakaibigan din, naging magkaibigan na kami," she continued.
Philmar also revealed how once upon a time they used to call each other “lodi” but now, their pet name is “mahal ko.”
The actress, who is expecting her second child, also pointed out that her first-born, Ellie, remains her top priority.
She explained, "No matter what, even if I'm having a second child, siya pa rin ang priority ko. So, kailangan kong mag-make ng extra effort."
The couple is currently building a house in Siargao, which they plan to turn into a bed and breakfast.
Before taking an indefinite hiatus from the limelight, Andi starred in various Star Cinema films, including "Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy" and "Momzillas."
