Ira Eigenmann is part of ABS-CBN's afternoon drama series Prinsesa ng Banyera. The literal translation is Princess of the Fish Bucket. The soap opera tells the story of two sisters who live different lives. One will do anything for the sake of her loved ones while the other will forsake all to reach her goals. Ira plays the role of teen Rosa, which appears to be a lesser role.
Eigenmann is a member of a very influential and respected entertainment industry family in the Philippines. Ira is the daughter of Mark Gil and actress Irene Celebre.
Reportedly, Ira's ex-boyfriend, an American, took the photos and posted them on the internet. Some sources are questioning the authenticity but real or not - they're out there.
