After celebrating their first year anniversary as a couple earlier this month, Derek Ramsay and Ellen Adarna finally pushed through with their honeymoon in Africa. The couple left the country last February 24 along with Ellen’s son Elias (with former partner John Lloyd Cruz) as seen in photos shared by them on their respective social media accounts. Before takeoff, Ellen shared a photo of Derek and Elias settling into their business class seats for the flight.
In a previous interview, the couple talked about why they decided to bring her three-year-old son Elias on their honeymoon. “Gusto naming ma-experience ni Elias ‘yung ma-eexperience namin kasi, pinag-isipan namin ni Ellen ‘to e — kung nand’on kami tapos ‘yung makikita namin i-wi-wish namin na siyempre makita ni Elias ‘yon. Yung Safari, once mo lang gagawin yun, eh. Maganda kung makasama namin si Elias, para ma-experience din niya,” Derek shared. Derek’s son Austin (with ex-wife Mary Christine Jolly) was not able to join them on the trip because of schooling according to the actor.
Last month, Derek revealed that he and Ellen are already planning to have children starting next year. “Yes. Probably next year. I want a boy, Ellen wants a girl,” he said in response to one fan’s online comment during an Instagram Live Q&A on his account.
Derek and Ellen tied the knot in a rustic-themed wedding in Bataan last November after being engaged for over eight months.
