Over the weekend, rumors swirled about the alleged pregnancy of 29-year-old actress Ellen Adarna with boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz. According to ABS-CBN News, Ellen's manager Pia Campos did not directly confirm or deny the issue but said in a statement, "At the moment, I can assure you that Ellen is well and happy."
Pia added, "If there are rumors to be admitted or dispelled, it's her story to tell when she is ready to do so." The ABS-CBN report, however, says that Ellen's answer to the allegations would be largely dependent on her advertising contracts that apparently restrict any female endorser from bearing a child within the contract's duration. For Ellen, these contracts will expire at the end of 2017.
On November 18, PEP.ph released an exclusive scoop of Ellen confirming her pregnancy to some of her close friends. The issue became more controversial because of Ellen's noticeable absence during Bench's 30th anniversary show, "Under The Stars," which was held on the same night as the news broke.
