16 Apr – Although she is now engaged to actor Derek Ramsay, Ellen Adarna recently stressed that her former partner, John Lloyd Cruz is very much involved in their son's life.
The actress shared as much on Instagram Stories, where she did a Q&A session with her followers on 14 April.
When one netizen asked if son Elias still gets to spend time with Cruz, Adarna responded, "Yes, he does. He would pick up our son and bring him back to me."
"John Lloyd is a present father. He wants to be present. [Elias] needs his father as much as he needs me," she added.
In a previous interview, Adarna shared that she and Cruz are co-parents and that they have made an arrangement that enables Elias to have both parents actively involved in his life.
Adarna and Cruz were together for two years before they parted ways in 2019. Their son Elias was born in 2018.
