MANILA, May 11 (Mabuhay) — How is Derek Ramsay’s relationship with John Llyod Cruz, the ex-boyfriend of Ellen Adarna and the father of her child Elias?

Derek said all’s well and good.”We communicate,” he said. “We’ve had our man to man talk and he knows how much I respect he’s the father of Elias and I told him that myself.”

“He sees naman din also how much I love Elias like he’s my own so there’s respect there. Wala kaming problema on that side,” he added.

It seems like all involved parties have a good co-parenting setup for Elias. According to Derek, he and John Lloyd greet each other during their encounters.

“He picks up Elias here so when he’s here and I’m here, I go out to greet him when he comes to pick up Elias or whether he drops Elias here at the house,” Derek said. “So numerous times na. If I’m here and he’s there, we always greet back at one another.”

Ellen, on the other hand, hasn’t had the opportunity to speak to the mom of Derek’s son Austin, because she lives in another country.

Derek and Ellen tied the knot in November 2021, a month after confirming that they were dating. The two first sparked dating rumors in January.

During Ellen’s birthday last month, Derek posted a heartfelt message for her on his Instagram, thanking her for coming to his life.

“I can’t imagine a life without you and Elias,” he said. (MNS)
