Ellie, who is Jake’s daughter with his ex-girlfriend Andi Eigenmann is turning 10 years old this year. And with good genes and family ties in showbiz, it won’t be a surprise if she decides to join the entertainment industry one day. Asked if he’d allow his daughter to get into the limelight, Jake answered he would not say no and would support whatever Ellie wants to do in the future.

“Si Ellie kasi she’s been exposed to the industry because of Andi and they’ve had a lot of magazine shoots and stuff like that. I’d say she’s really comfortable being in front of the camera. If ever naman she decides to go into showbiz in the future, I won’t say no. Kung anong gusto niyang gawin, I’ll be rooting for her 110%,” he said.

Jake continued how Ellie even made fun of him when he did a stint in a variety show where he danced and sang.

“Right now she’s nine na and sanay na siya with her mom also si Andi who’s in the same industry. ‘Yun din nakakatawa kasi when I did that variety show last year and nakita ako ni Ellie sumasayaw and kumakanta, pinagtatawanan niya lang ako (laughs),” he explained.

Earlier, Jake revealed how much he appreciates Andi and their family in raising Ellie. He described Andi as a “great co-parent and he couldn’t be any more thankful.

“They da real MVPs! The photos and videos you see are mostly just me and Ellie, but it does take a village to raise a child and boy do we have an awesome one,” he said.
