Andi Eigenmann opens up on struggles of being away from Philmar Alipayo
Andi Eigenmann could not help but miss the island life, most especially her partner, Philmar Alipayo, as she currently spends her quarantine days away from Siargao.
Eigenmann took to Instagram yesterday, Oct. 9, to pen a heartfelt message for the champion surfer, noting that she is “missing papa more and more [every day].”
“I’m grateful that we’re now at a point in our lives where we have become stronger and so much happier, and more sure of [each other],” the doting wife said. “Even more so now that our family is growing.”
“But it’s honestly been more and more of a struggle to be our usual positive selves during this time,” Eigenmann stressed.
She noted that it has not been easy being apart for so long, with Alipayo “missing all of the special events in our lives, him not seeing baby 3’s development 1st hand, and him not being around to witness some of Lilo’s milestones.”
“Grand gestures and big celebrations were never our thing. As papa always says, ‘as long as we’re all together, Im happy na.’ Who would’ve thought there would come a time that something seemingly so simple would be so difficult to achieve,” Eigenmann emphasized.
Eigenmann, along with her daughter Lilo, has been staying in Manila since June, when she spent her birthday with Ellie, her daughter with actor Jake Ejercito.
“I miss you making us laugh so hard like we’ve never laughed before, I miss our fun island adventures, and discovering beautiful places nobody else has ever seen,” the actress said.
“I miss sharing special and beautiful moments with you. Even beach days spent just staring at the ocean with you by my side. — it’s funny how this was supposed to be a post about missing the island life, but it ended up being about you. Home really is where the heart is,” Eigenmann added.
Eigenmann is set to give birth to baby number three, her second child with Alipayo, in February next year. /ra
