Last April 19, LJ shared an appreciation post on her Instagram account dedicated to her son Ethan Aki (with former partner Paulo Avelino) who is turning 12 this coming July. She wrote, “I think I was quite young when I had you, but still the generational gap exists! Can’t deny that! Ako pa rin ang nanay, ikaw pa rin ang anak. There will be days when I wouldn’t understand you right away and vice versa. Di ko na gets music nyo, at nacocornyhan ka sa music namin noon!  ang kulit ko parang naka-repeat araw araw sa responsibilities mo, pero makulit ka rin naman sa kakaulit ng game time and currencies mo! So quits lang tayo 


But you will always be my baby boy!  I pray that some day, you will understand why I want you to put God first above all else. Let Jesus be your guide! 

I still remember all the moments you made mommy very strong!  and I keep that in my heart. ”

Earlier this month, Paulo Avelino visited his son Aki in Manhattan, New York where LJ and her family are now based. Paulo is currently in the US on a concert tour with Ogie Alcasid and rumored girlfriend Janine Gutierrez with whom he was first paired with in the 2021 romantic drama series Marry Me, Marry You.
