  • Andi Eigenmann Teaches Ellie About Girl Power Through Beauty

    Andi's daughter Ellie cut her locks cut, and of course, netizens had something to say about it.

  • Shorty after sharing her pregnancy news to the world, Andi Eigenmann's daughter Ellie sported a new look. The 7-year-old had cut her long locks, which she totally rocked, but it didn't suit some of her mom's followers apparently, as Andi revealed on Instagram.

    Some of the comments linked Ellie's hairstyle to her gender identity and that she could be mistaken as a lesbian. Many of the remarks also questioned the little girl's decision to cut her hair — yes, it was her choice — saying it was a waste to cut it because she was so beautiful with her long hair.

    Andi couldn't help but express her frustration on social media. "My daughter STILL IS beautiful, and no matter how much she will change through time, she always will be. Because it was never her long hair that made her look good," Andi wrote on Instagram.

    On her Instagram Stories, Andi added, "Ellie can have her hair any way she wants, and it shouldn't make her less of a woman if she has it short."

    Andi expressed sadness and worry for her daughter growing up in a world that was still close-minded, especially when it came to the standards of beauty.

    "Shame on these other women making my girl feel like she did something wrong all because her hair is short," Andi wrote on her Instagram Stories. "I am trying to raise a child that is comfortable in her own skin. That is confident in being true to who she is, regardless of what others may think," she said. "Why can’t we just learn to support and encourage other women to be confident, and strong, and to stay true to who they are?"

    Parents play a huge role in shaping how kids think and feel about their bodies and themselves. Andi is keenly aware of how she is her daughter's first role model based on another Instagram post she uploaded on International Women's Day.

    "It took me a while, but now I am able to define beauty for myself, and I feel this way regardless of what shape I am in, and regardless of what others think!" Andi wrote.

    "It was when I became a mother to Ellie, and even more now that I am a mother of two that I have realized the importance of self-love and appreciation," she added. "What motivates me to keep a mindset like this is the hope that by being the best version of myself, I can inspire my children to grow up to be the best version of theirs, imperfections and all," Andi stressed.

    Andi loved Ellie's short hair! She even quipped that her daughter looked like the actress from the movie Boy.

    Andi has always encouraged Ellie to be her own person and doesn't want to impose what she can or cannot do. 

    "Whoever said that there is a hair length requirement for beauty? They’re bonkers," Andi wrote as a caption for a photo of Ellie sporting her short 'do and wearing a baseball cap. "You look great, @ellieeigengirl" the soon-to-be mom of two told Ellie.
