Early life[edit]

Descent and family[edit]

Eigenmann is the daughter of actors Mark Gil and Jaclyn Jose, and is a half-sister of actors Sid Lucero, Gabby Eigenmann and Max Eigenmann from Mark Gill's side. Her aunt from her mother's side is actress Veronica Jones.[citation needed]


She graduated Elementary in 2004 and High School in 2008 at Miriam College in Katipunan, Quezon City. After finishing high school, she studied at De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde in Taft Avenue Manila.[citation needed]


In 2007, Eigenmann started her showbiz career in a soap opera Prinsesa ng Banyera on ABS-CBN, where she played the role of Sandy. In 2008, she appeared in the reality show Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition Plus. She was the second house player to enter the house and was evicted on day 53. In 2009, she was one of the 12 finalists of the MYX VJ Search 2009. In 2010, she played the lead and title role in the fantasy drama series, Agua Bendita, in which she played a dual role; Agua and Bendita, twin sisters.[2]

Eigenmann later starred on eight episodes of Your Song presents, playing different characters. Also in 2010, she starred in two films under Regal Films; Mamarazzi and Shake, Rattle and Roll 12. In 2011, Eigenmann played the role of Gabrielle "Gabby" Marcelo in the critically acclaimed family military drama series Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin, together with Maja Salvador and Coco Martin.[2]

After giving birth, Eigenmann returned to acting via Kahit Puso'y Masugatan in 2012, along with Gabby Concepcion, Jake Cuenca and Iza Calzado. In the same year, she also starred in a horror film Pridyider with Janice de Belen and JM de Guzman under Regal Films, and in a romantic drama film A Secret Affair with Derek Ramsay and Anne Curtis produced by Viva Films. Before A Secret Affair, Eigenmann signed a contract with Viva Artists Agency, a talent management of Viva Entertainment, where her mother Jaclyn Jose came from. In 2013, she top-billed the daytime fantasy horror drama series Galema: Anak ni Zuma, and later appeared in the 2014 fantasy drama series Dyesebel.[2]

In 2015, she starred in a lead role in Maalaala Mo Kaya with first time leading man Jake Cuenca.[2]

In October 2017, Eigenmann revealed that she was quitting the "artista life," but she later clarified it is the life style of showbiz that she is quitting not acting altogether.[3] She then transferred to GMA Artist Center in May 2018.

Personal life[edit]

On 23 November 2011, Eigenmann gave birth to a daughter named Adrianna Gabrielle "Ellie" Eigenmann via Caesarean section.[4] When asked about the identity of her child's father, Eigenmann claimed that actor Jake Ejercito, son of former Philippine President Joseph Estrada, is the father of her daughter Ellie, saying that "he was there since the beginning and he loves my daughter like his own, and so he's the father." Eigenmann said that she never took a DNA paternity test for her child.[5]
