Being a mother always gives a woman a fresher purpose in life, and while it also comes with a handful of challenges, these still do not compare to the everlasting joy it brings. In an interview for TWBA aired on March 31, 2017, Andi Eigenmann looked back on the changes motherhood has brought in her life.
Andi said five years as a young mom has transformed her into a better individual. “I feel like in the five years, I’ve changed so much,” she mused. “I feel like I proved myself that people really can change.” Thinking about all these, Andi believes she deserves a pat on the back.
“It was the amount of growth I attained through the years.” This growth pertains more on the emotional strength Andi has as a mother.
There was no question that she loved eldest daughter Ellie since the beginning, from that moment she figured she was carrying the child in her womb. “Since the moment I said I wanted to carry my child and to raise Ellie, since I made that commitment, mahal na mahal ko na siya and gusto ko na.”
But her perspective then wasn’t as bold as it is today. “Pero siguro ‘yung mentality and emotional stability na mayroon ako as a younger mom, I can say na hindi pa siya as strong as it is now.”
