To celebrate Andi Eigenmann's upcoming birthday, Andi, her daughter Ellie, and her surfer boyfriend Philmar Alipayo made a guest appearance on the morning TV show Magandang Buhay. Over the past few months, both Andi and Philmar have been documenting Andi's pregnancy journey on Instagram and posting photos of their adorable new family with Ellie.
When Philmar was asked if he and seven-year-old Ellie are close, he said, "Yes, after one hour lang siguro noong dumating kami sa Manila, nagda-drawing na kami, naghu-hula hoop." Apparently, Ellie loves surfing and does so every day when she's in Siargao! "Ayaw niyang huminto mag-surf. Sinasabi ko, 'Gutom na ako.' Sasabihin niya, 'Okay. Let's go home,'" Philmar shared.
Philmar also said that he used to have nightmares about Andi's mom, Jaclyn Jose, before even meeting her! But when they met in person, his nerves calmed down a bit. Andi added, "Mabait naman yung nanay ko. Mukha lang siyang masungit pero super bait ng mom ko." Jaclyn was also present during Philmar and Andi's gender reveal party in March.
According to the couple, the ~dream~ house that they're building in Siargao will also be a bed and breakfast, which is targeted towards families with little kids! You can watch their full interview here:
