Eduardo de Mesa Eigenmann goes by the stage name Eddie Mesa. He was born on February 18, 1940, and is a retired Filipino actor and singer. He became known for singing the well-known Sammy Davis song, earning the nickname “Elvis Presley of the Philippines.”
The lead singer of Eddie Mesa and The Trippers, Eddie, adopted his mother’s last name. His father was of Swiss and German ancestry.
Rosemarie Gil, also known as Maria Rosa Francisca Catalina Gil-Eigenmann y Castallvi, is a singer and actress from the Philippines. Rosemarie, who was born on March 9, 1942, is 80 years old and is best known for playing wealthy socialite-villainess roles.
While at work, Eddie ran into Rosemarie. Michael Edward (Michael de Mesa), their first child, was born in 1960. Raphael John (Mark Gil) and Evangeline Rose (Cherie Gil), the other two children, were also born after the couple wed in 1961.
The couple got divorced in 1970 as a result of marital problems, including Mesa’s alleged drinking and womanizing. Eddie left for Guam in 1978 and lived there for six months before relocating to Hawaii, whereas Rosemarie remained in the Philippines and continued to work as an actress.
Mesa reconciled with his wife in 1986 after becoming a born-again Christian, and they are currently married. There are currently 13 grandchildren, the majority of whom continue Eddie and Rosemarie’s professional careers.
Sadly, two of their children (Cherie and Mark) have already passed away. The other son Michael works as a Filipino film and television actor.
