It’s always difficult for parents to see their children in disagreement, and Kris Aquino admitted to this after a long “tampuhan” between her two sons Josh and Bimby. “We are not a perfect family, nagkamahabang 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 posted a photo of the three of them hugging each other tight.

Josh has been living in his grandmother’s house in Tarlac, and he has decided to live there. Kris also revealed that they were there to help prepare 800 grocery bags to be given away, in collaboration with Tarlac governor Susan Yap, as part of his birthday outreach on June 4.

Before the parted ways, with Kris and Bimby going back to their serviced residence, the three hugged each other tight. She also shared that she is going through something with her siblings, “but they value their privacy and I totally respect that I can share my life but not our lives.”

“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 akin 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.” 

She ends the post, “I have said repeatedly—I am not interested in politics now. BUT it is my right to protect our family’s name and honor.”
