Lawyer confirms Ellen Adarna has given birth

12 Jul – Ellen Adarna's legal representative Atty. Rebo Saguisag recently confirmed that the actress has given birth to her first child.

As reported on PEP, the confirmation was made by the lawyer at the Pasig City Prosecutor's Office, when he had to clarify the allegations made by Ms. Myra Santos that Adarna was using delaying tactics so that she would drop her child abuse and cybercrime case against the actress.

"Actually, two days after we spoke at the hearing, she gave birth. So there really wasn't any excuse," he said.

"So you can say that the delay could be for her to have a safe delivery and in due time. It's just a matter of days that the child could be brought to travel," he added.

His statement also marked the first time Adarna made an official confirmation that her hiatus from showbiz was due to her pregnancy. The actress' boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz earlier took an indefinite hiatus from work without giving any explanation for his decision.

The next hearing has been scheduled for 16 July, although there is a possibility that Adarna, who is currently resting in Cebu, may not be attending.
