Jake Ejercito has been having a good time with his eight-year-old daughter Ellie these past few months, since the start of the quarantine period.
In an Instagram post last Saturday, June 20, 2020, the 30-year-old celebrity dad uploaded photos of Ellie and wrote, "The silver lining in all this is having spent 102 straight days with her as opposed to the usual sched.
"The days were long and tough, but she’s been a reminder that the world still is beautiful— and better than Marst."
"Marst" has been a private joke between the two of them ever since Ellie misspelled Mars during a home-schooling lesson about the solar system with her personal tutor—Jake himself.
Ellie attends online classes via video conferencing apps, and is in grade three.
Aside from being Ellie's tutor, Jake is also her daughter's life-skill teacher and go-to playmate.
On May 31, Jake uploaded a video collage of their home activities where he was seen teaching Ellie how to bake cookies, make baked macaroni, and play badminton, among many others.
Ellie has been staying with Jake since she's unable to travel to Siargao and join her mother, Andi Eigenmann.
Her mom is based in Siargao with her partner Philmar Alipayo and her sister, Baby Lilo.
Domestic travel has been restricted in the country since March 15, 2020, to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
