Veteran actor Mark Gil expresses his excitement to his grandchild with Andi Eigenmenn. It was reported months ago that after Andi wrote a blog regarding her baby’s father, Albie Casiño (father of Andi’s baby) and his mother Rhea Casiño requested the baby to undergo DNA test which Jaclyn Jose didn’t favor to. Same was the decision of Andi’s father, Mark Gil, on the issue.
“No way! DNA [test] my ass! Wala akong sama ng loob kahit kanino, wala naman akong kinalaman sa ibang tao. She’s ours, she’s an Eigenmann,” Mark Gil’s statement in Pep.ph.
Grandpa Mark Gil is very much excited to his granddaughter’s birth. It would be his first Christmas as a grandfather.
“Na-e-excite ako. Araw-araw ko siyang [Andi] tine-text. Tinatanong ko, ‘Kailan ba? Puwede ba bukas na?’ [Andi is giving birth] at the end of November, but according to Jaclyn, baka lumagpas pa. Sabi ko wag na, kailangan itong November na. I know my granddaughter will be a beautiful baby. I can’t wait, naiiyak na ako. Basta tawagan niya ako, dapat nandun ako sa hospital,” he said.
“She’s a gift, a blessing, that baby will be our princess. She’s an addition to our family, another Eigenmann, naiiyak na talaga ako,” he adds.
Meanwhile, Andi’s mother had an exclusive interview with Pep.ph after the story conference of TV5’s Valiente. When asked about Andi’s condition, she happily said that Andi’s doing great and is expecting her baby ‘anytime soon.’
“Sobra. Sobrang excited. Pati siya [Andi]. At the same time, ano na rin siya, inip. Ang laki na ng tiyan niya. She wants to have it ano na,” Jaclyn said.
Andi is expected to have a TV comeback early summer of 2012. She has already offers and is very much excited to work again.
When asked if she will be stricter to Andi as she goes back to work, Jaclyn said: “Wala. It will be the same, lalo na ngayong may anak na siya. She must know how to ano, di ba? Kung noon, nandiyan ako to guide her, ngayon medyo male-lessen yun. Kasi she has to grow up, she has to mature, she has to take care of her daughter. She has to know how to deal with life.”
“Sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Isang pagkakamali lang, ha? Sa pangalawa, magagalit na ako,’” she adds, talking about her daughter’s early pregnancy.
