Andi Eigenmann gives an exclusive interview on how she is preparing for her baby.
Ever since news broke out earlier this year about her pregnancy, Andi Eigenmann has chosen to keep mum about her condition. But in this month’s issue of StarStudio magazine, the 21-year-old actress revealed the trials and fears she went through during the first few months of finding out about her unplanned pregnancy. “Di ko pinapansin kasi iniisip ko, wala na.
I was ignoring it probably because I was afraid. I didn’t want to admit it to myself. Hanggang walang
result and ayokong pumunta sa
doctor, ‘di ko ginagaw
a, no one was making me naman, wala, hindi ko inaamin. Dine-
deny ko lang
,” she shared with SSM.
Andi admitted that one of the hardest things she ever had to do was figure out how to break the news to her parents, Jaclyn Jose and Mark Gil. Fortunately for Andi, her mom figured it all out first. “Healthy eaters kasi kami ng
mom ko eh.
We eat mostly vegetables and white meat at home. Then all of a sudden, she noticed that I was eating food I don’t usually eat, like sugar. Then suddenly, I kept craving. And she knew that I kept missing my period. So ‘yon. Finally tinanong niya kung gusto ko bang mapa-
doctor,” she recalled.
Another big concern for Andi was how the change would affect her showbiz career, after starring in the 2010 hit series Agua Bendita
, she then went on to join the cast of Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin
and was reportedly slated to headline the remake of Maria Mercedes
when she found out she was pregnant. “I didn’t know what I was going to do if I lost my job. This was my dream. I thought to myself, I can’t lose it. I did everything I could. I waited so long. I waited for years to get there. Hindi pa ako tapos
,” she shared with SSM.
As she is due to give birth next month, Andi also shared in her 14-page interview with StarStudio how she has slowly come to terms with where fate has led her. “I was thinking that people would judge me in a way that I would be so afraid and I would start to be insecure. In the long run, I didn’t even do anything wrong. I know that my only intention was to be a good person,” she said.
Despite everything that has happened, Andi hopes that her baby’s father can be there for their child when she finally arrives. “Sana he’d want to be there like he said he would. Gusto ko maging masaya ang
baby ko sa kung sino man ang
daddy niya. Gusto ko makilala niya,
” she stressed.
