In February, Kris Aquino and son Bimby travelled to Tarlac where her older son Josh has been staying. In an earlier Instagram post, the actress explained that Josh enjoys the place for being able to jog, ride his e-bike, and enjoy the fresh air in peace.
On Thursday, May 27, Kris shared that she and Bimby are on their way back to Manila, but Josh has decided to be left in Tarlac and live there for good.
With a photo of the three of them in a tight embrace, she told her followers, “Namili na si Kuya Josh, gusto na niya talagang tumira sa Alto (our family compound), in what he calls Lola’s house’, in Tarlac.”
“The three of us said our goodbyes yesterday afternoon. Pabalik na kami ni Bimb to our serviced residence, while the condo we’ll be leasing is being readied,” she added.
Then Kris revealed that Josh and Bimby had a misunderstanding prior to when the photo was taken. However, with prayers, patience, and their love for each other, things were eventually resolved.
“We are not a perfect family, nagka-mahabang tampuhan ‘yung two boys, BUT nakuha talaga sa dasal, pasensya, at pagmamahal. Finally, kahapon naramdaman kong nabalik na ‘yung dating higpit ng yakapan at kulitan/lambingan nung dalawa,” she wrote.
Because of this, the Queen of All Media remembered her own siblings who, despite her brother Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III being a former president, have always been private about their personal lives.
“I can share that story because it’s about my sons & me. My family is not just limited to my two boys, alam niyo how important my sisters & brother are to me, BUT they value their privacy and I totally respect that, I can share my life, but not our lives,” said Kris.
She continued, “In time, I hope I can tell you more, because you deserve to know why I have so much more to learn and do to be worthy not only of being the daughter of my parents, BUT to earn the privilege of being “bunso”, (tawag niya sa ‘kin fondly or pag-umiiling na lang) of the most humble, trustworthy, capable, dignified, and morally upright man, I am so blessed to have as my brother.”
Before the “trolls” get the chance, Kris went ahead and made it clear that she’s just merely praising Noynoy as a sister, with no political agenda.
“Uunahan ko na, bago lagyan ng kulay pulitika at mag-wild na naman ang trolls, I am writing this because of LOVE,” she clarified. “Kailan ba naging masama mahalin ang mga anak at kapatid mo? Sa dami ng toxic na negativity ngayon, hindi masama na mag-share ako na bilang pamilya, BUO, may respeto, at nagmamahalan kami.”
She also maintained that she has no interest in getting into politics at the moment. “I have said repeatedly, I am not interested in politics now. BUT it is my right to protect our family’s name and honor.”
To end her post, Kris quoted a song by Avril Lavigne, “Sabi nga ni Avril Lavigne from her song WARRIOR: I pick my battles, because I know I’m gonna win the war.”
