Actress Andi Eigenmann, who will soon give birth to her third child, penned a sweet message for her eldest daughter, Ellie, on Friday, January 15.
In her latest post on Instagram, Andi said she's grateful for Ellie—her child with former boyfriend Jake Ejercito—for being a wonderful daughter and an amazing big sister.
"I am grateful everyday for you my dear Ellie. Thank you for making me a mom!" she began.
"I would often get told that albeit having three, things should be easier because at 9 years old, she doesn't need me as much. While it makes me proud to notice her gaining a greater sense of independence lately, it isn't entirely true. She may not need me the same way Lilo and Baby 3 would, but she does and still will in different ways," she said.
Lilo is her child with her fiancé, surfing champion Philmar Alipayo. Currently, the couple is expecting their second child together.
Addressing Ellie, Andi said: "And I have made it a promise to do my best and make sure to thrive in fulfilling these needs because that is what I am here for. This is something I have and will always be willing to do, since the moment I chose to have you."
Andi, 30, is now 38 weeks pregnant with her third child.
It was last August when the actress confirmed her pregnancy, saying she is due to give birth in 2021. She and Philmar later announced that they are expecting a baby boy.
In her last update about her pregnancy, Andi expressed her excitement to meet her "little island boy."
"Our little island boy is yet another symbol of our love and we feel more than blessed to have these precious littles to raise and nurture together, and grow with too. I am 38+ weeks pregnant today and we are feeling just about ready to meet this darling boy!" she said.
