Days after Max Eigenmann revealed Jake Ejercito is father of her sister Andi Eigenmann’s daughter, Jake has finally broken his silence on the issue.
The son of Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada posted on his Instagram a photo of him and Ellie on the evening of October 2.
Accompanying the photo was a long caption, where Jake expressed how he was very present in Ellie’s life even before she was born.
“It may have taken me years to find out by myself, but I've been here for you even before your first precious breath- nothing and no one has or will ever change that.
“You've only brought good things to my life and I promise to do the same to you a hundredfold. Know that everything has been and will always be for you. And that I will hold your hand the whole way through,“ he said.
Jake then wrote how much he loves Ellie and he can’t wait for her to grow up and hear their ‘love story.’
“I can't wait till you start asking me questions. Although words will certainly fail to express how much I love you, our love story is filled with fun, optimism, and immeasurable bliss. It's a story of a million beautiful memories that no one can ever take away from us and I'd endlessly be proud to share it with you.
“As we always tell each other whenever we part ways or go to sleep, you will always be my princess and I, your first love.”
In a statement, Andi said her daughter knew her father was from the very beginning. However, the actress said Ellie is still a private person even though she belongs to a showbiz family and she has chosen to shield her from intrigues.
“Growing up, Ellie knew who her father was and he has been there for her, and that's all that matters,” The Greatest Love star stated.
