Ellen revealed that her father used to tell her that she doesn’t need a man to feel complete.
For Ellen Adarna, getting married is the “craziest thing” she has done in the name of love.
The ever-so-candid actress, who has been quite active in answering her followers’ queries lately, had another round of Q&A on her Instagram account last July 15, 2021.
Among the questions that were asked her was: “What’s the craziest thing you did for love?”
“Getting married. Because when I was young, my father programmed my head that I don’t need a man. You only need a child,” she shared.
She added, “He would always tell me ‘You don’t need to get married. You don’t need a man to complete you.’”
The Cebuana actress married actor Derek Ramsay in Bagac, Bataan in November 2021.
Having said that, Ellen, with obvious amazement ended her response with “So it was never in my plan. Never imagined that I would get married. Yet here I am, married.”
Recall that Ellen also made headlines recently for finally addressing questions about ex-boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz’s child support for their son Elias.
“Yes, he does. When he asked me, how much does Elias need, I gave him a breakdown of his basic needs, just his basic needs, and that’s 10,000 pesos max. But he insisted on doubling it,” she explained.
Despite knowing that John Lloyd can provide more for their son, Ellen underscored that she too has a responsibility to provide for him.
“I know he’s more than capable of giving more than that, but I told him I cannot accept anything more than PHP20,000, and that’s it. I also have, because we are co-parenting, I have my obligations and responsibilities for Elias, so it’s just fair,” she said.
For Ellen, anything more than Php 200,000 is “morally not right because he’s not schooling yet. He hasn’t started school, so that’s just basic needs.”
Ever since their split in 2020, John Lloyd and Ellen have maintained a co-parenting status for Elias. In fact, more recently, Ellen and John Lloyd individually celebrated Elias’ 5th birthday, which the two stars shared on their respective social media accounts.
