Actress Andi Eigenmann talks to "The Buzz" host Boy Abunda about her relationship with Jake Ejercito

MANILA – Actress Andi Eigenmann was beaming with joy as she shared that her relationship with Jake Ejercito is now “better than ever.”

This comes days after she expressed apprehension that their relationship might get affected after she got dragged in the recent breakup of Billy Crawford and Nikki Gil.

“We’ve been better than ever. Hindi ko masasabi [na we are back] kasi ever since the beginning naman, hindi ko talaga alam kung ano dapat ang sabihin. Never naman ako nag-hesitate na sabihin sa mga tao na I really care about this person and that this person is special to me,” she told “The Buzz.”

Refusing to label their relationship, Eigenmann said she and Ejercito are just happy with what they have at the moment.

“Ang pinag-usapan lang po namin is that when we are ready, kapag tamang oras na, saka magkakaroon siguro ng label. Pero at this moment, sa tingin ko mga bata pa kami and may sarili pa kaming mga bagay na gusto namin mag-focus on,” she said.

Ejercito is currently finishing his studies abroad while Eigenmann is busy taping her upcoming series “Galema.”

Meanwhile, the actress flatly admitted that she got jealous when Ejercito was linked to “It’s Showtime” host Coleen Garcia.

Asked whether she confronted Ejercito about Garcia, the “Galema” star said: “Nung time kasi na narinig ko about it, hindi niya ako kinakausap so hindi ko alam kung ano talaga ang totoo. And ang dami kong naririnig. Initially, maniniwala ka or magkakaroon ka ng doubt. Pero at the same time, I still trust Jake so whatever he tells me, whatever he says, I believe him.”

At the same time, Eigenmann assured Ejercito that he has nothing to be jealous of Matteo Guidicelli, who is her leading man in her upcoming soap.

“Nakilala na niya si Matteo even during ‘Agua Bendita’ because Jake and I have been friends since forever. For some reason, kahit pareho pa kaming single ni Matteo, hindi niya daw ako type, hindi ko din siya type so sige na nga,” she said.

Eigenmann said Guidicelli is really her good friend and they will remain just that.

“Matteo and I are awesome. We’ve been friends even before ‘Agua Bendita.' In this industry, si Matteo ang isa sa mga tao na kahit anong mangyari, kahit hindi kami magkatrabaho ulit, alam ko na kaibigan ko pa rin siya,” she said.
