She welcomed her baby in June and for the first time since giving birth, Ellen Adarna has been spotted in public as she went out with her friends to go malling.
The actress, who has not spoken about her pregnancy, kept her outfit casual, wearing a black blouse, tight leggings, and sandals.
The photos from her group's fun day out were reuploaded by a fan account on Instagram on Tuesday. Among the things they did were shopping for clothes and grabbing a meal at a Japanese restaurant.
In one of the "selfies" Adarna and her friends took, she looked radiant despite giving birth only recently, showing very little signs of fatigue from life as a new mother.
The last time Adarna was seen in public was back in May, when she took a beach break with her boyfriend, Kapamilya star John Lloyd Cruz, while she was still heavily pregnant.
She was also caught in a controversy during the same month, after she posted on Instagram a photo of a minor who she accused of taking picture of her at a restaurant without permission.
The minor's mother has since filed charges against Adarna, and the court proceedings forced her lawyer to confirm that she had given birth.
