Personal life[edit]

Talks about Eigenmann's alleged pregnancy started surfacing after a blind item appeared in a blog on June 23, 2011. A few days later, discussions in Twitter pointed out that Eigenmmann was the topic of the blind item.[4] When the news of Andi's pregnancy broke out, Eigenmann and Ejercito trended in Twitter worldwide.[5] In a live interview with Mario Dumaual in TV Patrol which aired on June 29, Eigenmann's mother, Jaclyn Jose, confirmed the pregnancy. Jose also stated that her daughter is 18 weeks and two days pregnant and that she was proud of her daughter's decision to keep the baby.[6] When asked about the father of the child, Jose only stated that it was Eigenmann's first boyfriend. The boyfriend allegedly left after getting Eigenmann pregnant. Names of the alleged father include Albie Casiño and Jake Ejercito, a son of former Philippine president Joseph Estrada.[1] Ejercito denied being Eigenmann's boyfriend and being the father of the child in a post on his Twitter page.[7] A day later, Eigenmann tweeted denying Ejercito as the father of the child.[8]
