Sa Tonight with Boy Abunda, nagkwento si Jake Ejercito tungkol sa unang pagkikita ng kanyang anak na si Ellie at ng grandparents nito na si Mayor Erap Estrada at Laarni Enriquez. “Actually it was unplanned, we were in Tagaytay beause it was All souls, All Saints’ Day… In God’s perfect time, it just happened. My Dad was there and then Ellie and I followed.”
Ito rin diumano ang unang pagkakataong nalaman ni Mayor Estrada ang tungkol kay Ellie. “Tears of joy for everyone. I felt very relieved na Ellie eventually got to meet her grandfather, her Daddy Lolo, that's what she calls him.”
Masaya rin ang kanyang ina. “She was the one who was the happiest.”
Kakabirthday lang ni Ellie at ayon kay Jake, “si Ellie nag-celebrate sa school niya- kindergarten so I just went there.” Dagdag pa ni Jake, “I’m throwing her a party, next Saturday.”
Hindi daw niya itinanggi ang pagiging ama ni Ellie. “Not really, even before the issue came out.” Paglilinaw niya, “ever since Ellie was born, I was there for her. I was her father figure so even before I found out ako lang yung kilala ni Ellie na tatay.”
Napag-usapan na rin nila ni Andi Eigenmann (ina ni Ellie) ang tungkol sa financial support ng bata.
Ano naman kaya ang plano nila sa Pasko? “We haven’t talked about it yet but I get to borrow her once in a while.”
Pinahihiram naman daw ni Andi si Ellie sa kanya, “she does. Not as much as I’d want to but she does.”
