MANILA - Ellen Adarna and John Lloyd Cruz, who have long been rumored to be expecting a child together, were a picture of a happy family in a photo shared by the actress on Instagram Sunday.
The photo, which nearly had 200,000 likes as of writing, shows Adarna carrying a baby. Closely beside her is Cruz, with a hand on Adarna's shoulder, and the other holding the baby's little fingers.
In the caption, Adarna tagged and addressed "Pusong Ligaw" actress Beauty Gonzalez, and used the hashtag #OliviaInes, the name of Gonzalez's first child with her husband, art curator Norman Crisologo.
Adarna, in the caption, greeted Olivia a happy birthday and said sorry to Gonzalez on behalf of her and Cruz, for being a "bad ninong and ninang" because they were absent. She added they would make it up to Olivia.
The former "Pasion de Amor" actress also said the photo was taken when Olivia, who was born in February 2016, was only a year old. Apparently referring to Cruz, Adarna quipped that at that time, they were only friends.
The photo came amid persistent rumors surrounding the two, including a pregnancy, supposed plans to get married, and most recently, buying a property together.
This property once again became the subject of speculation over the weekend, when Adarna commented on Instagram post of actress KC Concepcion about the latter's new Palawan property.
"New neighbor!" Adarna said, triggering her fans to speculate that her and Cruz's mysterious "future view" was taken in Palawan.
