In an article published by Ricky Lo in his column in the Philippine Star today, Jake Ejercito opened up about his relationship with actress Andi Eigenmann and her daughter Ellie.
“Let’s put it this way…since Andi got pregnant I have been supportive of her. We have known each other since we were in our diapers because my mom is a good friend of her mom (Jaclyn Jose). May photos kami na naka-diaper kami. I was in London when her daughter was born.”
When asked if he and Andi went steady in a relationship he answered, “Yes. Four to five years. We broke up two years ago. But we have remained friends. We have common friends. Our friends from way back are still our friends now. What Andi and I have in common is the love for traveling. The last time we traveled was recently…to Cebu.”
Jake then added that he may not be one of Ellie’s godparents but, “I treat her like my daughter.” Ricky placed a disclaimer in his article and said that the neophyte actor did not clarify if he is the biological father of Ellie.
As of the moment, Jake is still single and shared that every time he likes a girl he tends to be torpe.
“Yes, very much single…and willing to mingle! Hahaha!!! Hmmm, it’s been a while [since I had a girlfriend].”
He then added that what attracts him is “confidence. Also, her smile” but gets turned off with “Mga know-it-alls. It’s very shallow but, yes, their poor sense of style.”
