The veteran actress reacts to her daughter's recent controversy involving Jake Ejercito.
(SPOT.ph) Veteran actress Jaclyn Jose has broken her silence on the issue involving her daughter, Andi Eigenmann, and the latter's ex-boyfriend, Jake Ejercito. In September, Ejercito was identified as the biological father of Eigenmann's daughter, Ellie.
When asked to comment about the news, Jose told the press, "Ang importante sa amin, nagmamahalan kami at nagsusuportahan kaming pamilya. Sa lahat ng laban, hindi ko iiwanan si Andi at si Ellie." However, she refused to divulge whether Eigenmann and Ejercito are on speaking terms, saying, "Nandoon lang po ako [sa] anak ko, si Andi, at apo ko, si Ellie. Hanggang doon lang po ang puwede kong sabihin."
She added that despite the criticisms hurled at her daughter, the latter is doing "good," saying, "Everybody's good in the family. Intact lang kami."
Ma' Rosa, which earned Jose a Cannes trophy for Best Actress, is currently in the running for a nomination in the Best Foreign Language Film category of the Oscars. Her latest movie, Patay Na Si Hesus, is part of this year's QCinema International Film Festival lineup.
