LOOK: Six-months pregnant Andi Eigenmann rides the waves
MANILA, Philippines — Nothing can stop Andi Eigenmann from surfing even if she is six months pregnant.
Eigenmann posted Friday a photo of herself riding the waves in Siargao via her Instagram page captioned: “Another day in paradise. #25weeks.”
She said she is surfing with her doctor’s permission and with the help of a professional surfer, boyfriend Philmar Alipayo.
“Note: I surf with (just enough) knowledge of what I am doing, with my doctor’s permission, and with a professional surfer (@chepoxz) guiding me and making sure that the baby and I are ok,” Eigenmann said.
However, Eigenmann said that just because this is her preferred exercise, it does not mean this allows every pregnant woman to surf.
“It’s my personal choice of exercise but doesn’t mean that it’s ok for every other pregnant lady to do this. Every person and every body is different,” she said.
Eigenmann announced in February that she is pregnant with her second child. /ee
