The showbiz new comer said he knows he is Ellie’s father.

“Yeah [Ellie is my daughter]. Never ko namang idinenay e,” he said in an interview with PEP.ph.

According to Jake, he already found out through a DNA test a year ago that he was Ellie’s dad.

“I was really surprised. But I’m happy and I have no regrets,” he said.

He also explained why he opted to keep mum about the issue.

“It’s all because I was trying to protect Ellie. Kasi, ‘di ba, ang daming parties involved (There were so many parties involved).”

Jake’s mother Laarni Enriquez also said that she’s just waiting for Andi statement and she’s ready to welcome her granddaughter to their family anytime.
