Andre Yllana has earned his first salary.

The 23-year-old newbie actor is the son of Aiko Melendez with her former husband Jomari Yllana.

On Friday, September 17, 2021, Aiko proudly revealed how everyone in the family benefited from Andre’s first salary.

The 45-year-old actress wrote on Instagram, “Share ko lang … Nung una sumeweldo si Andre @andreyllana alam nyo ba ano una nya ginawa? He treated the whole family for dinner [emojis]”

Aiko’s mom Elsie Castañeda also received a new Apple Watch as a gift from Andre.

He also wanted to give Aiko a gift, but the celebrity mom told him not to buy any designer item, and to save his money instead.

She wrote (published as is), “Tapos binilhan nya lola nya Elsie Castaneda ng apple watch sabi nya mama ano gusto mo?

“Sabi ko anak tago mo muna mag ipon ka. Kapag naka ipon ka na dun mo na ako uli bilhan ng sa tingin mo pwede mo iregalo sa akin.

“And sagot ni Andre mama wag na mga bags ahhh. Sayang pera. Yes anak nagbago na ako simula ng pandemic di ko na aappreciate ang branded bags.”


In the same Instagram post, Aiko was emotional as she recounted how Andre planned on treating his half-sister Marthena, who is Aiko’s daughter with Martin Jickain.

Andre also expressed wanting to treat his mom’s partner, Zambales Governor Jay Khonghun, to a meal.

Aiko continued, “And he asked again? Mama si Marthena Jickain @jickainmarthena ano kaya pwede ko iregalo sa kanya. Ganyan ka sweet at generous si Andre sa pamilya.

“Sabi nya mama kapag di na ECQ or MECQ or kapag totally wala na virus kapag pwede na lahat ililibre ko si tito Jay Khonghun @vicegov_jaykhonghun ahh [emojis]

“Naluha ako slight kasi di ko akalain lahat kami asa isip nya.

“Di man million pa kinikita ng anak ko pero likas sa knya ang pagka generous kaya alam ko Andre iblessed ka ni Lord [emojis] kasi di ka madamot…”

To end her post, Aiko wished her son good luck with his upcoming project. She also thanked VIVA Artists Agency and Veronique Corpus for trusting Andre.

Aiko wrote, “Go go anak ayan na malapit na ilabas ang show ninyo! Goodluck anak [emojis] We love you so much! Alam ko Proud dn tatay mo syo [emojis]

“We are all rooting for you [emojis] thank you ms @veroniquecorpus @vivaartistsagency for Everything that You do for Andre [emojis] ms @mhitpimentel your alaga salamat dn po syo [emojis]”

In February 2021, Andre officially signed with VIVA Artist Agency.

The 23-year-old actor first joined showbiz in 2016 when he signed with Star Magic, the talent-management arm of ABS-CBN.

He appeared on the Kapamilya weekend drama anthology Maalaala Mo Kaya in 2017 and starred in the iWant digital series Alamat ng Ano in 2018.

Andre took a break from showbiz to focus on his studies.

In June 2021, after finishing his Automobile Mechanic course at Don Bosco Technical Institute, he made a comeback.

Andre just finished filming his upcoming drama series titled ‘Di Na Muli, which was co-produced by TV5 and VIVA Television.
