Showbiz personality and son of former President Joseph Ejercito Estrada, Jake Ejercito, shares his life as a father to her daughter Ellie Eigenmann who will soon turn 9-years-old.
Ellie is the only daughter of former couple Andi Eigenmann and Jake Ejercito which they share a joint custody to her and agreed to many conditions when it comes to her welfare after a long and controversial process of settlement.
As of now, Andi has a new family with a new partner Philmar Alipayo who is a professional surfer in Siargao. They have a daughter named Lilo, and another baby coming because Andi is now pregnant again to her third child to her second child with Philmar.
While Manila is on lockdown, Andi chooses to left Ellie to his Dad for all the months of quarantine, while Andi stays in Siargao. Being with Ellie for a long time, Jake has made a lot of discoveries about himself as a father and to her daughter.
In a report from PEP, Ellie will be turning 9 years old this year. According to Jake, he discovered that little girls like Ellie wanted to do a lot of new things and activities. That’s when he came in and he introduced to her his interests like Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Harry Potter, and his sports basketball. Also, they play badminton together.
Over the quarantine, a lot of trends online emerged and one of those is the video-sharing application Tik Tok which he and his daughter argued about at one point but settled in a compromise. He shared that he didn’t allow her to continue using it but later on, he found out that Ellie refused to follow his instruction,
He said, “Ayon, hinayaan ko na siya eventually. I just told her, iyon nga, to be discerning sa mga nakikita.”
Jake also said that Ellie got one of his trait and that is being impatient. But Ellie is very shy, kind, and quiet kid and he is so proud of her, he added.
As a father, he admitted that he is the bad cop but he does everything to be more like authoritative and not authoritarian. He wanted Ellie to trust him and not fear him.
