[UPDATED: July 9, 2018, 6:34 P.M.] Ellen Adarna's lawyer Rebo Saguisag revealed that she had given birth on June 27, confirming rumors that have long been circulating.
In a video by MJ Marfori of TV5, Atty. Saguisag said, "Actually, after the hearing...na sinabi namin, nanganak na siya..."
Atty. Saguisag represents Ellen in the child abuse complaint filed against her by Myra Abo Santos, the mother of the minor she allegedly bullied online. Ellen has been absent from the hearings, and according to Atty. Saguisag, she was issued a "medical certificate, advised against any form of travel."
While it has been speculated that the Kapamilya actress delivered a baby boy at the Chong Hua Hospital in Cebu, the gender of the child has yet to be confirmed.
Ellen and her partner John Lloyd became a couple in 2017, and it was in November that same year when PEP.ph reported that they were expecting their first child together.
