Jerika Ejercito is pregnant with her fifth child—and it is a girl!
"We are so happy to announce that we are adding a new member to the Princess Tribe," the soon-to-be mother of five said in her latest Instagram post.
The "Princess Tribe" referred to herself and niece Ellie Eigenmann.
So far, Jerika and Ellie are the only girls in the Ejercito family. Jerika has two brothers: Jake—Ellie's dad—and Jacob.
Ellie's cousins so far are Jerika's sons Isaiah, Daniel, Michael, and Moses.
Jerika had always considered Ellie as her princess.
That's why the celebrity mom gave a special shout-out to Ellie in the same Instagram post.
Published as is, she wrote: "Happy to have spent some time with my OG Princess @ellieislandgirl doing this shoot Ellie, you will always be our Original Princess, You have a very special and safe place in our hearts no matter what"
Jerika thanked Ellie for being the "sweetest" and "best" big sister to her cousins, and she felt extra grateful that her future daughter would have Ellie to look after her.
"I am so grateful that she has you to look up to and will learn to be as caring and thoughtful as you are through your love for her. You continue to bring us so much joy and I cannot wait for our little Princess to get to know how wonderful her ate is"
Jerika announced her pregnancy on April 21, 2021. The daughter of former Manila mayor Joseph Estrada posted a photo of her four boys holding up sonograms.
