Actress Andi Eigenmann is expecting her second child, her first with champion surfer beau Philmar Alipayo.


In her Instagram story last week, Andi, now 28, wrote she’s not as active on social media because she has been adjusting to her “new life.”


“Haven’t been as active on social media for many (great) reasons — Been adjusting slowly but surely to my ‘new life. The journey has been so exciting yet scary at the same time, but we have been so happy and at peace nevertheless. Still wouldn’t have my life any other way,” Andi said.


“We are now on our way to moving to our new island home where my growing family will make more joyful memories together. Our loved ones, especially Ellie and @chepoxz, and I cannot wait,” she added.


“Fourteen weeks and 3 days pregnant with our little pear,” she wrote.


The daughter of celebrities Jaclyn Jose and Mark Gil also posted photos of her changing body to update fans with her pregnancy. One was taken on Dec. 17, 2018 while other on Feb. 1, 2019.


Philmar, 26, who hails from Siargao, currently ranks 6th on the men's short board division of the Philippine Surfing Championship Tour (PSCT), the country’s first-ever and only professional surfing tournament.


Philmar made history when he was named the first-ever Filipino champ of the PSCT after winning the 19th Siargao National Surfing Cup in 2017.


In an interview with, Philmar said his interest in surfing started when he was just a kid, Philippine Entertainment Portal reported.


The surfing champ told EdgeDavao, "I was 10 years old when I first started surfing. My Uncle Yok-Yok, one of the best Filipino surfers of his time, taught me."


Philmar's favorite surfing spots in Siargao are Cloud 9 and Tuason Point.


According to PEP, Philmar also teaches surfing to visiting tourists during his free time at Harana Surf Resort.


Aside from surfing, Philmar is also interested in customizing bikes.


Now, he co-owns a lodging house with Andi in Baler, Aurora, which is also one of the country's top surfing spots.


Andi, who is currently based in Baler with her daughter Ellie, manages the lodging house.


The couple's relationship surfaced in August when both Andi, 28, and Philmar, 26, started posting their photos together, PEP reported.


In October, Philmar posted a celebratory photo of him and Andi for their 4th 'monthsary,' which confirmed they have been officially together since June.


In an interview with (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the press, Andi shared what made her fall in love with Philmar.


She told PEP "Well, for one, I’m really motivated to be the best version of myself. Like, it’s the first time I’m with someone who really supports me with that, and then without also forgetting the fact that I have a daughter."


"Yun yung number one thing about him, that I feel, like, really parang na-catch niya yung heart ko. Kasi, not that it was him who showed me how important my daughter is, but he showed me that I can live a life of being a twenty-eight-year-old and being young and free," PEP quoted her as saying.


"But at the same time, incorporating my relationship with my daughter and time with my daughter there [Siargao] more than ever," she said.


Andi gave birth to her first child Ellie in November 2011. Ellie is her daughter with former boyfriend Jake Ejercito.
