If you have ever been to Andi Eigenmann’s Instagram account, then you would know that Ellie is an important part of her life in every way possible. From helping her with school activities to working out together, every day seems to revolve around her daughter and best friend.
“This girl never stops teaching me, challenging me and loving me. She keeps me grounded, and she constantly surprises me. She is one strong, and beautiful girl. She made my life whole,” Andi captioned one post. This is only one of many that shows how much she adores her daughter. And on Magandang Buhay, the actress shared with fans the kind of bond they have.
It has been more than four years since Andi’s father, Mark Gil, passed away due to liver cancer. Ellie was only two and a half years old when the renowned actor passed away, yet she seems to fully understand how loved he was. She has always shown eagerness to get to know her grandfather. In fact, it is the little seven-year-old who often asks for mom stories. “Nagkukwento ako kasi nagtatanong siya,” Andi explained. For this, she feels glad and thankful, “Alam niya na importante ‘yung dad namin sa amin.”

Today, Mark Gil’s memory lives on through his many works in the entertainment industry as well as in his family. Andi is currently enjoying life in paradise and she believes that this is because of her father. “’Yung love ko rin for the ocean and for living by the beach, well, I know I got that from my dad,” she stated. He has always wanted her to be happy and, in the process, allows her to make her own choices. “Katulad rin ng sinabi ng mga kuya ko, ng mga kapatid ko, ‘Malaki ka na at saka mukha kang masaya. So, bakit kami makikialam’,” she ended.
