  • There’s no doubt that Kris Aquino shares a strong bond with her two sons, Josh and Bimb — look at her social media accounts peppered with photos of their travels and everyday activities as a family. And while she may now be known as the Queen of All Media, you know the social media posts are not just for show. Kris has proven time and again the lengths she will go to protect her kids and to make sure that they are raised well

    And the boys look like they are growing up fine, as shown in a video Kris shared on her social platforms.

    Yesterday, April 19, Bimb celebrated his 11th birthday, and Kris and her household had prepared a surprise for the tween when he woke up that morning. It was a simple celebration with balloons, a handmade banner, and two cakes.

    When it was time for Bimb to blow the candles and told to make a wish, he said without any hesitation, “I wish for Mama’s happiness.” 

    But before you could complete your "aww" reaction, Bimb suddenly backtracked and said he meant it as a joke. Laughter ensued, but Bimb's next line addressed to his mom was even sweeter. “I already make you happy.”

    It goes to show that even at a young age, Bimb continues to prove how mature and thoughtful he is. (He is also hilarious.)

    Kris, of course, also had a sweet birthday message for her son. In another post, she thanked God for giving her Bimb and for making sure that her older son, Josh, would always have a “kakampi.” She called Bimb her answered prayer and said, “You are my life, my laughter, my light. You are the living proof that I learned by example on how to be a mom from the best and she can only smile from heaven watching over you and Kuya.”

    She also called Bimb her “best friend.” Precious!

    But Kris wasn’t the only one who sent out a special message for Bimb. His dad, James Yap, also took to Instagram to greet him.

    “I miss you and think about you every day,” the cager writes. “Alam ko na ang tagal na natin di nakapag-spend ng time together, at di nagkikita, but I want you to know that I’m always here for you. I will always be your Papa.”

    It was previously reported in August 2017 that James has not seen his son for eight months at the time, and based on his post, it seems the two have not spent time together since then.

    In November 2017, Kris stated in a comment on Instagram that she has waived child support from James for Bimby.

    [UPDATE] A few hours after we wrote this story, Kris took to Instagram and had some harsh words for her former husband. Read it here.
