Childhood and Adolescence

She was one of three children born to a German father, Frank Eidloth, and a Filipina mother, Edjenta Burgos, on March 2, 1988, in Rosenheim, West Germany. Her father worked for a food company in the Philippines, while her mother owned a beauty salon in Laguna’s Sta. Rosa.

Nicole is her sister, while Edmund is her brother. Little is known about her childhood save that she and her sister Nicole were sent back to the Philippines by their father when Nadine was four years old so that the girls might grow up in a humble environment rather than inheriting a haughty German mentality, according to their father.

She began studying martial arts at the age of nine and now possesses a blue belt in Taekwondo. She’s had a knee condition since she was a child, which prevents her from doing any intense activity, including stair climbing.
