MANILA, Philippines – After 3 months of keeping mum, actress Andi Eigenmann on Sunday finally named Albie Casiño as the father of her unborn child.

"Maybe instead of feeling bad that Albie left me to take on this responsibility by myself, I should thank him for giving me the opportunity to go out and find genuine happiness once again," she wrote in her blog titled "#welliwasneverreallytheconventionaltype."

Eigenmann eventually removed Casiño's name from her blog post and replaced it with "the baby daddy (-_- really?)."

On Monday, she wrote, "I'd just like to clarify that the post prior to this has been edited. Purpose for this is merely for 'fans' (really?), to stop reacting so violently. So again, 'fans,' this blog wasn't created for you to make a big deal out of."

The Casiño family has neither denied nor confirmed that Albie is the father of Eigenmann's baby.

The Eigenmann family, on the other hand, described him as a former boyfriend who abandoned the actress when he learned she was pregnant.

Meanwhile, Eigenmann said she would love for Casiño "to be around eventually."

"You know, to save myself the struggle to find a good way to explain his absence to his child. At the same time, I'd understand. [Because] after all, I have no idea who or what kind of a person all the fame and fortune has turned him into now. All I hope is that he's well," she wrote.

Fans then expressed their support for the actress by posting their comments on Eigenmann's blog entry.

"You're a smart girl. You deserve a good man," Iani Villalon wrote.

"Wow! What a brave, mature woman you've become, Andi. Good luck to you," user jedtulabs added.

“You'd make a great mom, for sure! :),” said blogger whimsicaldrift.

Blogger kaye said: “You're baby is gonna be really proud of you!!!”

Last June 29, Eigenmann’s mom, veteran actress Jaclyn Jose, confirmed to ABS-CBN that her 21-year-old daughter was already 4 months pregnant.
