Andi Eigenmann is confirmed pregnant.
“Yes it’s true, my daughter is pregnant,” a tearful Jaclyn Jose, Andi’s mom, admitted in an interview with ABS-CBN’s “TV Patrol” on Wednesday, June 29.
Andi who turned 21 last June 27, is exactly 18 weeks and two days pregnant.
Though feeling extremely hurt with what happened to her daughter, Jaclyn fully supports Andi’s pregnancy.
“Hindi madali pero kailangan kong tanggapin… wala namang ibang tutulong sa kanya kundi ako at ang kanyang pamilya,” she said. “She decided to keep the baby and naging proud naman ako sa anak ko. Mahal namin yan eh. Mahal ng pamilya ko si Andi.”
She added that her faith in the Lord gives her strength in this trying time.
“Ang una mong pupuntahan simbahan. Mananalangin ka. Ibibigay mo na lang sa Kanya lahat; sasabihin mo na ‘Ama ikaw na bahala hindi ko kaya to. Kung ano man ang desisyon Mo, tatanggapin ko.'”
Who’s the father?
But when asked about who the father of the baby is, Jaclyn refused to give a name.
“First boyfriend niya. Wala na sila ‘nun. Iniwanan siya nung nabuntis siya. I don’t want to talk about him anymore. Wala akong hinihingi sa kanila ni ayaw ko sila makita,” Jaclyn said firmly.
Who’s Andi’s first boyfriend? Netizens immediately speculated that it’s Jake Ejercito, son of former President Joseph Estrada by Laarni Enriquez.
In fact, when news of Andi’s pregnancy broke out, Andi and Jake trended in Twitter worldwide.
Jake, however, immediately denied on Twitter that he is the father of Andi’s unborn baby and that he is her first boyfriend.
“I’d just like to ask everyone not to jump into conclusions and misinterpret what has been said. I am not Andi’s first boyfriend. Let us just respect and pray for her, her baby, and family,” he said.
Meanwhile, Jaclyn hopes that the public will understand Andi’s situation; that the people will spare her daughter from further judgment.
“Kung may nagawang pagkakamali ang anak ko, hindi ko sinasabing tama, wag na lang husgahan, Bigyan niyo rin siya ng pagkakataon tutal buhay naman yan at kami na ang bahalang family.”
