Jake Ejercito expressed joy after he brought his daughter Ellie to a recent campaign event held in Bataan and Olongapo, where she was able to meet her dad’s presidential bet.

“When the one you are fighting for and the one leading the fight meet,” Ejercito said while showing snippets of the said encounter, via his Instagram page yesterday, April 20.


The actor and his daughter were noticed by Robredo as she passed their way. Ejercito greeted Robredo, telling her that he brought Ellie with him. The vice president then hugged the child and told her that she was a fan of Ellie.

Ejercito then showed himself at the stage speaking in front of the crowd while Ellie watched him from the back. Other celebrities who were with him in the event were Edu Manzano and Cherry Pie Picache.
