I think mentioning you have a child with a Filipina would make it even less likely that they would deny you entry. Once (if) you get married you will have more visa options available to you and this won't be a problem.

They used to ask me these questions quite a bit as well. I just tell them I get a lot of vacation time. They didn't believe me of course and told me that it is "only 50k USD" for an investment visa (because I can just pull 50k out of my @ss at any time like it's nothing....it's a cool party trick!). I smile and tell them I am looking into visa options since I'm not married and they let me go through.
I believe that, technically, they can deny you entry for any reason they see fit, though I have never heard of this happening to anyone who was smiling and being polite.
Since you are 2 on/2 off they don't really leave you much choice for other visa options, I would just politely explain to them your situation, smile and hope for the best.
