Jake Ejercito will always be proud of Andi Eigenmann.
The actor attested to this when he opened up about his former girlfriend in an interview with PEP published yesterday, January 28. According to Jake, he is glad that Andi chose to live in Siargao along with their daughter Ellie, her partner Philmar Alipayo, and the couple’s daughter Lilo.
“I’m very proud of her actually dahil tinalikuran niya ang show business for a simpler life. For as long as she’s happy,” Jake enthused.
The actor is also happy that he gets to spend time with Ellie once in a while. In fact, the two are set to visit Japan in February with Jake’s family.
“Andi and I have a schedule to follow. Parang every other week si Ellie sa akin,” he revealed.
“‘Yung buhay ko, nag-180-degree turn for the better. Bigla akong naging responsible. Kasi hindi na lang sarili ko ang iniisip ko. I have to think of the future of my daughter. ‘Yung responsibility ko sa life, ‘yun ang nagbago sa akin,” he added.
Last November, Jake and Andi celebrated Ellie’s eighth birthday at their daughter’s school.
