Jake Ejercito once again had to say goodbye to his daughter Ellie as she returned to Siargao to stay with her mom Andi Eigenmann.
On Instagram, the "Marry Me, Marry You" actor shared an emotional moment with his unica hija while dropping her off at the airport.
"Never not tough 😪" he wrote in the caption.
Meanwhile in the comments, one netizen pointed out the co-parenting setup Jake and Andi have for their daughter.
She wrote, "This is the big lesson of both parents before separating their lives, we must consider our children first 😢.Kaya ayaw ko mag asawa eh😂😢."
Jake was then quick to defend that "forcing something" will just leave their daughter more traumatized, and that they are trying their "best to make it work."
“Lesson here is not to overgeneralize. Not everyone has it easy and forcing something that will never be will just be worse and even more traumatic for children. These are the cards we were dealt and we try our best to make it work with Ellie’s well-being as top priority,” he explained.
Based on Andi's latest Instagram post on Monday, September 27, Andi is happily enjoying her island life again and will soon start homeschooling her kids.
"Mama feels whole again.♥️ Ate Ellie is back and back to swimming, surfing, and beaching together again. This year, we are also delving into another realm of parenting that is homeschooling! Looking forward to it, but glad I get to start this journey with only one 4th grader for now though.😅" she wrote.
