MANILA, Philippines – During a televised interview on “Buzz ng Bayan” aired on Sunday, San Mig Coffee player James Yap uttered a special message to his ex- wife’s new love interest.
“Ipagpatuloy mo. Mahalin mo si Kris,” Yap said. “Ipagpatuloy mo na masaya siya lagi and ipagpe-pray ko kayo.”
According to Yap, Kris Aquino looks at peace now and radiates a positive aura. He attributed Aquino’s blooming glow to her new love.
“Blooming na blooming kaya sabi ko ‘In love ka ah.’ Iba ‘yung aura. Masayahin siya, ibang iba sa dati. Dati talagang aso’t pusa (kami) eh. Ngayon iba na.”
During the live telecast of “Aquino and Abunda Tonight” last week, the TV host-actress disclosed that she is in love. However, she declined to name the new man in her life.
Aquino also requested the public to give her suitor privacy and spare him from intrigues.
“But again, uulitin ko po ah, utang ko po sa inyo na i-kwento ko ang buhay ko, pero utang ko sa kanya na bigyan ko siya ng privacy at bigyan ko siya ng katahimikan. And sana i-regalo niyo na po sa amin iyon.”
In the past, Aquino was romantically linked to Phillip Salvador, Joey Marquez and Robin Padilla. She was also rumored to be dating Makati Mayor Junjun Binay and actor-model Daniel Matsunaga more recently.
Agreement on Bimby’s Custody
Aquino and Yap settled the visitation rights and custody of their son Bimby at the Makati Regional Trial Court with Presiding Judge Cristina Sulit last Wednesday.
Sulit stated that the two agreed that their son will visit Yap once a week, beginning March 7.
In her Instagram post showing a photo of her, Yap and Sulit, Aquino wrote in the caption: “At the end of the day, as parents, we want Bimby to grow up feeling loved and secure.”
Enjoying Time with Bimby
The basketball superstar also said that he is enjoying his relationship with his son. He even revealed that this is the happiest bonding he ever had with Bimby since things have changed.
“Ito ‘yung pinakamasaya na pagsasama namin [ni Bimby] dahil ibang-iba rin. Nakikipagkuwentuhan na, nakikipaglaro. Tuwang-tuwa ako nung hinawakan niya ‘yung phone ko tapos may hinanap siyang game. Tuwang-tuwa ako [nung sumakay siya sa akin sa likod]. Sabi ko ang sarap [ng pakiramdam].”
