To caption her post, Ellen opted to use emojis. She wrote “2” followed by wrapped present, heart, breastfeeding mother, and baby emojis.
She shared photos of herself and Elias on a carnival ride, on vacation, having fun in the playground, and strolling at the beach. Ellen also shared a video of her playing the piano with baby Elias on her lap. In another photo, Elias was seen happily floating by himself in the pool. The child was smiling and wearing oversized sunglasses.

Ellen was heard laughing while talking to Elias about his party. “You have such a beautiful setup but you don’t have visitors. Oh my God!” Ellen said. “But tuloy pa rin.”
Mass gatherings, including birthday parties, are not allowed under strict quarantine guidelines. Ellen, Elias, and John Lloyd are currently in Cebu. However, it was not clear if John Lloyd was among the attendees at Elias’s second birthday party.
Elias was born on June 27, 2018. John Lloyd and Ellen ended their relationship on August 2019. Back in April, Ellen revealed in a radio interview that she has no plans of making a showbiz comeback just yet. The actress said she prefers to focus on raising Elias, whom she is co-parenting with John Lloyd.
"Definitely not in the next seven years,” Ellen told disc jockeys of RX93.1 who asked about her making a showbiz comeback once the pandemic is over. Ellen explained: “I want to be with my son in his formative years, which is the first seven years. I’m a very hands-on mom."
