Philmar and Andi met on Siargao island while the actress was on vacation. “Nung first time ko siyang na-meet ay nilapitan ko siya at nagpa-picture ako kasi siya iyong number one sa Philippine surfing last year,” Andi recalled in a previous interview.
“Hindi ko in-expect talaga. Sabi ko nga, 'Itatanong pa ba iyon?' Ang sarap-sarap ma in-love kapag nasa paradise ka,” Andi said.
Philmar Alipayo is a Filipino surfer and Internet celebrity, and well-known as the real-life partner of actress Andi Eigenmann. He was born in 1992 and met Andi several years ago while the latter is on vacation in the island paradise of Siargao. Philmar is also famous for winning the men's division of the first Philippine Surfing Championship Tour in 2017.
Philmar and Andi recently hit a huge milestone on their social media channel. In the actress's latest vlog, she and Philmar addressed their 2-million-subscriber milestone. According to Andi, she is thankful for all the love that she and her Happy Island family have received. At one point in the video, Andi also asked her partner, Philmar, to share what he thought about their milestone.
Several days ago, the video of Philmar teaching his daughter Lilo to surf went viral. The professional surfer was lying on his stomach on the surfboard while Lilo was in front of him wearing a life vest. Then, without fear, as they were approaching the shore, Lilo instinctively stood up and was trying to balance herself as well. The father captioned the video with, “She just knows what to do.”
