Jaclyn Jose refuses to answer if her daughter Andi Eigenmann and Jake Ejercito are back in each other's arms.
Jaclyn Jose said that all is well between her and daughter Andi Eigenmann after the two had a misunderstanding last year. The said tiff stemmed from Jaclyn’s statement to the press that the parents of Andi’s then boyfriend, Jake Ejercito, did not approve of Andi for their son because she is a single mom.
During the finale press con of the teleserye Kahit Puso’y Masugatan, which is down to its last two weeks, Jaclyn said that whatever she and her daughter are going through is something normal. “Anak ko si Andi. Magmula nung ipinanganak ko siya, ako na ang nag-alaga sa kanya so kahit di pa siya artista kahit nasa bahay kami, mag-ina na ang turingan namin. May away dyan, may lambingan, may pagmamahalan. Tapos tatak ng isang mag-ina. Ganun lang ‘yon.”
The character actress also said confidently that their love for each other is greater than any conflict. “I’m sure si Andi naman di naman magagalit sa akin ‘yan ng sagad. We live in one house, we stay in one house. I love her so much. Di ako pwede magalit sa kanya, anak ko siya eh.”
Jaclyn continued that her daughter may have harbored ill feelings towards her for speaking her mind, but she justified that she did that out of love for Andi. “Siguro nagtampo siya sa akin talaga, but you know ang sa akin lang naman for future suitors or companions, they must know [that] if they will love Andi, they have to love Ellie also, to be proud of Ellie also.” She further said that she intends to fight for her granddaughter because she loves her so much.
One reporter then asked Jaclyn if rumors were true that Andi and Jake are now back in each other’s arms. “Si Andi na lang ang tanungin mo kasi nag-promise ako, kasi mahirap eh. Sumasama ang loob sa akin [ni Andi].” If ever these rumors were true, Jaclyn said that she is not against it, and what really mattered to her is that she was able to speak her mind and get the message across concerning Andi’s status as a single mom.
then asked Jaclyn what she learned after the rift with her daughter. Immediately, the actress answered, “Wag na akong mangialam. Di na ako mangingialam. Di naman sa nangingialam
love life, nasasaktan lang ako para sa apo ko nasaktan lang ako. Kung ayaw nila, eh di wag. Ang ganda-ganda ng apo ko. ‘Yun lang naman ang ipinagtanggol ko do’n
. Other than that may karapatan sila at may
right sila to
say whatever they want.”
She was also candid enough to say that she will stand by her statement that Jake’s parents do not approve of Andi being a single parent, but added that she would rather not talk about the issue. “Ayoko ng intriga,” she concluded.
Jaclyn revealed that she has not yet reconciled with Jake’s mom, Laarni Enriquez, but quickly added that she didn’t mean to hurt their feelings but she just wanted to be honest.
