Actress Andi Eigenmann did not take easily to netizens’ unsolicited assumptions on her daughter Ellie, whose androgynous haircut created quite the social media buzz last Wednesday.

 

 

In an Instagram Story update, Andi could barely hide her disappointment after having received negative comments from strangers over Ellie’s new ‘do. She told, “What is wrong with all these people saying that my kid looks like a boy or asking if she is [a] lesbian just because she has short hair? Ellie can have her hair any way she wants and it shouldn’t make her less of a woman if she has it short. Shame on these other women making my girl feel like she did something wrong all because her hair is now short.”

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

She discovered a new fashion staple for herself today! You look great, @ellieeigengirl 🤟🏼 Been receiving so much comments from strangers asking me what happened to Ellie’s hair, assuming that it has something to do with her gender identity, or simply telling me how much of a waste it was to cut her hair of because “she was so beautiful”. My daughter STILL IS beautiful, and no matter how much she will change through time, she always will be. Because it was never her long hair that made her look good. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, yes. But it saddens me how people (specially other women) are making me feel like Ellie cannot feel or be beautiful just because of her hair. I am trying to raise a child that is comfortable in her own skin. That is confident in being true to who she is, regardless of what others may think. As a mother though, it gets scary for me to raise my child around people who think this way. Why can’t we just learn to support and encourage other women to be confident, and strong, and to stay true to who they are, rather than bringing them down for being this way? Whoever said that there is a hair length requirement for beauty? They’re bonkers.

The 28-year-old mother also took to her feed to better address the issue, citing that she’s particularly concerned about the adverse reactions coming from her fellow women. “I am trying to raise a child that is comfortable in her own skin. That is confident in being true to who she is, regardless of what others may think. As a mother though, it gets scary for me to raise my child around people who think this way. Why can’t we just learn to support and encourage other women to be confident, and strong, and to stay true to who they are, rather than bringing them down for being this way? Whoever said that there is a hair length requirement for beauty? They’re bonkers,” she added.

Ellie is Andi’s child from a previous relationship with former boyfriend Jake Ejercito. Currently, the ‘Maid In London’ star is expecting her second daughter with her surfer partner, Philmar Alipayo.
