Andre Yllana reveals something about his dynamic with mom, Aiko Melendez. Growing up with her, Andre is not afraid to admit that he is a mama’s boy. He doesn’t care about what other people might think about that. The two even enjoyed Star Magic Ball 2017 together because Aiko is Andre’s date. Cue in the awws.
“Eh, ano naman po. Di bale ng mama’s boy, di ba? At least, alam ng tao na close kami,” Andre says.
He isn’t one to be affected by possible teasing because what is important is their relationship as mother and son. They are very open with one another. In Aiko’s recent story about Andre, she revealed that she has access to his phone and actually saw that he opened a p*rn site.
“Ano lang naman, tinuturuan niya lang akong mag-ingat ng… kumbaga po do’n sa safe sex… ganun. Kasi po, let’s face it, tumatanda na po ako. 19 na po ako, binata na po ako. Yung dating po kasi ng pagturo sa akin ni mommy ng mga ganung bagay po, ano po kasi, hindi po kami nagkikita ni daddy, so kumbaga po, pinipilit po ni mommy na kahit wala po si daddy, maging parang father figure rin siya sa akin.
“Kaya po yung mga ganitong bagay open po talaga kami sa isa’t isa. Wala po kasi talaga akong tinatago kay mommy. Lahat po alam ni mommy.”
Aiko is a very hands-on mom to Andre and despite not seeing his father, Andre wouldn’t exactly feel it because Aiko is trying hard to be a good single mom.
Asked about his possible career in show business, Andre said:
“Kung ano lang po yung ibibigay ng Diyos sa akin. Thankful naman po ako kung ano man yon. Kung meron po, masaya po, kung wala, siguro hindi po para sa akin talaga yon.”
Adding the pressure of living up to the expectations of being the son of Aiko Melendez and Jomari Yllana, Andre says that it does affect him and his decision to push for a career.
