MANILA – This whole period of community quarantine may have been hard for most people because everyone has to stay at home to curb the spread of the coronavirus disease.

But it wasn’t that difficult for Jake Ejercito, who is on lockdown with daughter Ellie.

On Instagram, Ejercito shared a couple of pictures of him and Ellie showing how they spend their time together.

“The silver lining in all this is having spent 102 straight days with her as opposed to the usual sched,” Ejercito wrote in the caption.

While the days are long and tough, Ejercito said Ellie has been “a reminder that the world still is beautiful.”

Ejercito has been looking after Ellie in Manila since March. 

Ellie’s mom, actress Andi Eigenmann, is based in Siargao and she was unable to pick up her daughter because of the pandemic.
