Speculations that Albie Casiño is the father of Andi Eigenmann's child strengthen.
Through her Twitter account, Andi Eigenmann finally spoke about the ongoing mystery regarding the identity of the “ex-boyfriend” who got her pregnant. In her Twitter post last June 30 at 8:10 pm, the 21-year-old teleserye
star cleared Jake Ejercito, son of former president Joseph Estrada. Andi said, “For your better understanding, I've only had one boyfriend before Jake whom I've only been seeing for the past two months. Therefore, Jake cannot be the said ex-boyfriend whom everyone has been talking about."
This strengthens speculations that Albie Casiño, best known for appearing in the teleserye Mara Clara
, is the father of Andi’s child. Andi and Albie had a relationship even before they both entered showbiz. Andi is now four months pregnant. In her interview with TV Patrol,
Andi’s mother Jaclyn Jose said the father is the “first boyfriend” of her daughter.
Albie has yet to make a statement about the matter, but his mother, Rina Casiño, wrote on her Twitter account that her son is not the first boyfriend of Andi. She also said in a recent radio interview that she has no problem if it will be proven that Albie is the father of the child, but she also welcomes having a DNA test just to be sure.
Andi’s home network, ABS-CBN, has also released a statement in light of this controversy. The young star is currently seen on the Kapamilya
primetime teleserye Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin
, and also a contract talent of Star Magic, the artist management arm of ABS-CBN. The official statement signed by ABS-CBN Head of Corporate Communications, Bong Osorio, read, “We respect the wishes of Andi's family for her as the Kapamilya
network is with her during this delicate time.”
Because of Andi’s condition, many assumed that she will be pulled out from Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin
. But according to Biboy Arboleda, advertising and promotions manager of the program, Andi will stay on with the teleserye
. “Andi Eigenmann is with MLKI. That's the official statement. Nothing more. Salamat
