  • Her youngest child Lilo may already be four months old, but it’s only now that Andi Eigenmann is fully realizing what it means to be a mom of two. 

    It seems like the actress, who has happily settled into life in the islands of Siargao with her partner Philmar Alipayo and their daughter Lilo, is no longer used to city living. She gave a rundown of how her day with her two kids went when they came to the city yesterday to attend several events.

    “Headed to Ellie’s school to watch her program where Lilo was (unsurprisingly) well-behaved. From then on as we went from one event to another, LILO WOULD NOT STOP CRYING. By 9PM, we were exhausted! This is the first busy day I had since having 2 kids,” she captioned a photo of her eldest daughter Ellie carrying her baby sister.

    As if Lilo’s crying and rushing from one event to the next wasn’t enough to stress her out, Andi also discovered she was producing very little breastmilk during this time.

    “I had 2 days of pumping (AM- PM) and was only able to collect 4oz of milk. (Bakit ganyan, guys?),” she added. 

    So you know what came next — “Lilo kept crying of hunger as I had 10-15mins to feed her each time. (But that used to be enough time for a full feed. Again, bakit ganyan?) 

    “I swear I do my research and take not of what can cause my milk supply to drop. Is it possible to just not have that much milk?? Cus it was the same with Ellie.”

    The silver lining in all this for Andi was Ellie, who gamely stepped up to her role as big sister. 

    “Ellie is truly a blessing! I know she was also tired from our long day but heard no complaints from her. She chose to help take care of Lilo and soothe her even if she didnt have to, and nobody asked her to. WHAT AN AMAZING BIG SIS. 

    “How bittersweet it is that she is 8 yrs. old tomorrow. She is growning up to be one heck of a young lady, but I cant help but ask myself, where has time gone??” Andi reflected.

    Turning sentimental, Andi also shared her thoughts about her daughter with former boyfriend Jake Ejercito turning a year older tomorrow.

    “Look at how fast time flies! I want to spend all the time I could to be with you as you grow. I dont want to have to look back and ask myself where time has gone. Now you are turning 8! Soon, you will have your own thing going on and Ill just be home maybe bugging you to come and hang with me. Lol!”
