Ejercito dedicated his tweet to “kids being born out of wedlock who’re being pushed around just [’cause] of it.” He then had these comforting words to them: “It’s neither a fault nor sin.”

He added: “It also doesn’t make you of lesser value in society than a legitimate one.” Ejercito ended with, “We’ve got a place in this world. Let’s make the most out of it.”

His sentiments seem to stem from real life, as he is the son of Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada and actress Laarni Enriquez. In 2016, it was revealed that he was the biological father of Andi Eigenmann’s 6-year-old daughter, Ellie.  /ra
