God has blessed beyond what we could ever ask for and we intend to make it right in His time?? #blessed #myfamily#grateful #love #lovethis”
A couple of days later, Jerika posted what seemed like a behind-the-scene shot of a family photo composed of her mother and father, her two younger brothers Jacob and Jake Ejercito, herself, Bernard, and baby Isaiah.
Months ago, Jerika’s mother revealed that the Manila Mayor was actually averse to the possibility of his only daughter with Laarni getting married. But she however remained positive that time would come a time that the actor-turned-politician would eventually be able to accept his newest apo.
