“Hi dad! Thank you. I love you. I missed you, dad. My dad is here,” she told co-stars Anne Curtis and Derek Ramsay.

Aside from Gil, Eigenmann’s mom Jaclyn Jose, who is also part of the movie, was present during the premiere night.

Speaking before reporters, a nervous Eigenmann said she was so happy to be part of the movie.

“First time ko pa lang po talaga mapabilang sa isang project na ganito karami ang taong nagsusuporta. I’m so happy,” she said.

“Siyempre kinabahan po ako talaga kasi nakaka-overwhelm na trinust ako ng Viva para makasama sina Anne and Derek. It’s such an honor to work with them, to do scenes with them,” she added.

Eigenmann said she is hoping the viewers would also appreciate the film.

"A Secret Affair" will hit theaters nationwide on October 24.
