Andi Eigenmann posted a photo of her eldest child Ellie to express how much she’s missing her, as the nine-year-old is spending time with her dad Jake Ejercito in Manila.
The “Agua Bendita” actress, who lives in Siargao with partner Philmar Alipayo and their two kids, shared that being a mom of three doesn’t mean dividing her love to her all children. Her heart simply just grew.
“A part of me always feels missing when this kid isn't around. I miss her so much!
Having three kids doesn't mean we learn to split our heart into pieces. Mothers just have this innate capabality of having our hearts grow big enough to have more and more love to give,” said Andi.
This love, however, also comes with the struggle of learning to slowly letting them live their own lives.
“I cherish this gift so much because it is the most important thing we can offer our kids. But it could get pretty difficult too. Especially, when they start to grow into their own person with their own preferences and making their own decisions,” she admitted.
But Andi knows this is only the small price to pay to teach Ellie be free and the happiest she can be.
She added, “I just have to constantly remind myself that I committed to raising my little girl in order for her to find her true and authentic self, so that she could live her happiest and best life. Not so that she could stay with me forever and keep me comfortable.”
