MANILA, Philippines — Actress Ellen Adarna has opened up on plans to grow her family with husband and fellow actor Derek Ramsay, even if it means postponing a return to the entertainment industry indefinitely.
Ellen, who has Chinese ancestry, plans to have a baby with Derek in 2024 – believed to be the year of the dragon – ‘for good luck’ part of her plans is spending more time for her and her family.
“Next year na ako mabuntis…one last na lang,” Ellen said, hoping for a girl this time around.
The actress even joked that she turned down offers for projects with Derek, “Ayoko siyang kasama [sa project]. To feel ko walang mangyayari. Magtatawanan lang kami.

Ellen didn’t close opportunities like guesting on a show, but would turn down outright if a project involved a locked recording that would take a week or even a month to film.
For now, Ellen is focusing on Elias, her four-year-old son with ex John Lloyd Cruz, until he turns seven.
“I want to be with my son. Kasi magkatabi kaming matulog. He sleeps with us. So hindi pa ako ready,” Ellen added.
Ellen has been very tight-lipped about the life of Elias, who was born in 2018. She and Derek tied the knot last year after dating for a few months.
Derek now has a child, Austin, from his previous marriage to Mary Christine Jolly. He and Ellen attended Austin’s graduation earlier this year.
