Jake Ejercito is overwhelmed by all the comments he has been receiving from netizens who are praising him for being a good father to daughter Ellie Eigenmann.
In a Facebook post, the Star Magic artist acknowledged all the compliments while explaining how he's just doing what's best for his daughter.
"Been receiving lots of positive comments about me being a “good” dad to Ellie. Though I am truly humbled by and appreciate all the kind words, I honestly don’t think I’m doing anything special. I’m just trying to be the best dad for my daughter," he explained.
"With that said, I’d also like to point out that I couldn’t have done it alone, especially at the beginning at such a young age and in a less than ideal situation."
Jake then put the spotlight on the people who helped him become the best parent he can be: his parents and family, kasambahays, and especially his former partner Andi Eigenmann.
"God knows how it would’ve turned out without the guidance and support extended to me/us by my parents, siblings, relatives, friends, and our kasambahays. And of course, Andi’s been a great co-parent too. They da real MVP’s!"
"The photos and videos you see are mostly just me and Ellie, but it does take a village to raise a child and boy do we have an awesome one," he added.
Jake ended his post with a reminder to all his fellow young fathers to cherish every moment with their kids.
"To all young dads out there, there’s nothing more fulfilling and beautiful in the world than to grow with and be best buddies with your child 🙂" he said.
