Andi Eigenmann's Daughters Ellie and Lilo Sure Have Good-Looking Cousins!Meet the fourth generation of the Eigenmann clan of actors.by Jocelyn Valle .
Ellie, whose father is Jake Ejercito, will turn 8 on November 23. Lilo was born just last July 23. Her father is champion surfer Philmar Alipayo, who hails from Siargao island. Andi and her daughters lead the island life with Philmar.
Ellie and Lilo have good-looking cousins. On their mother’s paternal side, for instance, they carry the artistahin genes of the Eigenmann clan.
Patriarch Eddie Mesa (real name: Eddie de Mesa Eigenmann) carved a name in showbiz in the 1950s as the Elvis Presley of the Philippines, while his wife Rosemarie Gil excelled as a dramatic actress. They got married in 1961 but separated in 1970. Sixteen years later, in 1986, they reunited and have remained together since then. They are now based in the U.S. and serving their church in Southern California.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Eddie and Rosemarie’s three children Michael de Mesa, Mark Gil, and Cherie Gil built their own acting careers. Michael’s three sons by his ex-wife, actress and TV director Gina Alajar, likewise became actors. But only Ryan and Geoff remain active today as the youngest, AJ, migrated to the U.S.CONTINUE READING BELOWRecommended Videos
The legacy of Mark, who died of lung career in September 2014, lives on through his children Gabby, Timmy (using the screen name, Sid Lucero, the name of Mark’s character in the classic film, Batch ’81), Max, and Andi. Cherie’s children, on the other hand, have so far not joined local showbiz.
Just like Andi, Geoff Eigenmann is a parent of two children. He and with his partner Angelie May Flores — who’s a singer known as Maya — have a daughter, Arabella Simone, and a son, Augustus Geoffrey.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Arabella Simone is nicknamed Beanie. She turns 2 years old this September 23. Augustus Geoffrey, who’s fondly called Gus, was born last June 15, 2019.

Ryan and Cathy’s eldest child is Catalina. On her own Instagram account, the 10-year-old girl describes herself as a gymnast. She also likes posting photos of her siblings, Ruis and Rocio.
Ruis, the only boy in the brood of three, is turning 7 in December. Based on his photos posted on his family members’ Instagram accounts, he enjoys clowning around.
