WATCH: Andi Eigenmann chooses to be ‘positive’ in dealing with postpartum depression
A few weeks after welcoming her third child, Andi Eigenmann opened up that she is dealing with postpartum depression by choosing to “look on the positive side.”
Eigenmann, 30, recalled having struggled with postpartum depression back in 2019 when she gave birth to Lilo, as disclosed in a YouTube vlog on Feb. 7.
“In my Instagram, I mentioned that I had postpartum depression with Lilo and Papa would always tell me that ‘you know this stage, this phase will go by very quickly,'” Eigenmann said.
“Now this time around, I just really want to enjoy my time with my kids because, you know, it’s true what he said; every day they are growing and we will never get this time back,” she added.
Eigenmann emphasized that she is now “choosing to look on the positive side of all this and (has) really just been enjoying the super sarap (good) feeling of having a newborn.”
In the Instagram post she referred to, Eigenmann admitted that “things have been different” this time around as compared with her experience back then.

“I truly missed newborn days with Lilo, and it eventually sunk into me, how quickly that phase does go by. So now, I am just enjoying and cherishing every bit of it with papa and the girls!” she explained.
The doting mother gave birth to her third baby, Koa, on Jan. 17. Koa is her second child with her partner, pro-surfer Philmar Alipayo. /ra
