MANILA, Philippines – Apart from daughter Ellie, actress Andi Eigenmann admitted that rumored boyfriend Jake Ejercito inspires her.

“Yes, he does make me happy,” Eigenmann said in an interview with “The Buzz,” which aired on Sunday. “Ganun pa rin naman po ‘yung situation. I’m single but then I have an inspiration. Opo, si Jake po. Besides Ellie, there’s Jake.”

But just like in previous interviews, Eigenmann reiterated that she and Ejercito, the son of former President Joseph Estrada, are not yet officially a couple.

“Ganun lang po talaga 'yun. Kasi gusto namin na marunong kaming magrespeto sa mga mas matanda sa amin, sa mga mas nakakaalam ano ‘yung mas makakabuti para sa amin. Ayoko pong tapakan ‘yon at sirain po ‘yon,” she said.

The “Kung Puso’y Masugatan” actress earlier said she and Ejercito are not in a relationship because they know that they are still young and they have their own priorities in life.

Asked about Ejercito’s family, the actress said: “Mabait po ‘yung family (niya). Opo, kilala ko po sila from before pa.”

Meanwhile, Eigenmann reported that she is looking forward to the first birthday celebration of her daughter Ellie on November 25, two days after her daughter turns one on November 23.

She said her friends as well as professional party planners are helping her plan the bash.

“It’s going to be big for sure because it’s a way for me to show people and to show Ellie how much I’m going to work hard for her,” she said.

Eigenmann is currently promoting her upcoming movie "A Secret Affair" with Anne Curtis.
