Jake Ejercito gets emotional as daughter Ellie flies back to Siargao
Jake Ejercito got emotional as he and daughter Ellie said their goodbyes before she returned to Siargao to be with her mom Andi Eigenmann.
On Friday, Jake shared a photo of himself on his knees and hugging Ellie outside the departure area of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3.
"Never not tough," he wrote on Instagram.
A few hours later, Andi shared on Instagram stories a photo of Ellie happily reunited with her siblings Koa and Lilo inside a car.
Ellie's younger siblings Koa and Lilo are Andi's children with fiance Philmar Alipayo.
In July, Andi opened up about missing Ellie, who traveled back and forth between Siargao and Manila to be with her parents.
Despite spending time apart, Andi said it was about giving Ellie the chance to "get out there and live her best, happiest life." – Kaela Malig/RC, GMA News
