MANILA – Andi Eigenmann clarified that her post in the image- and video-sharing site Instagram last Valentine’s Day is not for Jake Ejercito, who has been romantically linked to her for months now.
The two ended their relationship in 2012 but Eigenmann remained vocal that she still considers Ejercito as someone special despite their split.
In her Instagram account last Friday, Eigenmann posted the quote: “One day in February isn’t special. But you are.”
Explaining her post, Eigenmann told “Buzz ng Bayan” on Sunday that it was actually meant for all the girls who didn’t have a date on Valentine’s Day.
“I posted that for all the other girls out there na February 14, Valentine’s Day, that’s just one day in a year. You don’t have to worry about not receiving flowers or not having a Valetine that day because that’s not special. It’s just February 14, an ordinary day that comes once a year. Pero you are,” she said.
“Huwag mo naman isipin na sa araw na 'yun, dun ka lang makakatanggap ng something na special. It actually didn’t have anything to do with Jake,” the “Galema” actress added.
When asked to reveal the real score between her and the son of former President Joseph Estrada, the actress only gave a simple answer.
“Kasi po he’s still not here in Manila, he’s still based abroad. Para sa akin, mahirap bigyan ng pangalan ang ganun kasi 'yung set up ng buhay namin, hindi naman typical para makabuo ng isang relationship. If it can’t happen so perfectly, hindi na lang po muna mamadaliin,” she said.
But the actress said she is willing to go to great lengths to fight for Ejercito.
‘Para sa akin po, never naman ako naging ashamed sa feelings ko para sa kanya. Alam ko naman na parte ng trabaho ko din, gusto din malaman ng mga tao kung ano ang nangyayari sa personal kong buhay. On my part, yes he’s special to me and he means a lot to me and so even if it means waiting until forever, okay lang sa akin. Because I know that it’s worth it,” she said.
The actress, however, said she is not sure whether the feeling is mutual.
“I can’t really assume things kasi naka-depend din naman 'yun sa tao. It doesn’t matter kung siya may sasabihin back kasi hindi naman siya public figure so hindi niya obligasyon yun. Pero ayaw ko i-asume na 'yung feelings niya ay mutual,” she said.
