The Philippines’ Queen of All Media, Kris Aquino, posted a special photo collage of her older brother President Benigno Aquino III on his birthday.
President Aquino turns 56 this year and will be celebrating his last birthday in office before his successor would be elected in May 2016.
Kris took to Instagram to post a collage on Instagram presenting many occasions she and her sons Josh and Bimby spent intimate family moments with the President; just a few hours before the clock struck midnight on the President’s birthday.
She captioned the photo with the hashtag #MyBrotherIsAwesome.
Among the photos she posted are some of their annual family Christmas pictures with her older sisters, their husbands and children together with the President. Photos of the President spending time with Kris’ sons, who many have noted to be his favorite nephews, as well as pictures of past birthdays and family gatherings were also included.
President Aquino had spent a total of six birthdays as the country’s Chief Executive. This year, his birthday happens to fall on the same day as the Lunar New Year.
Rappler points out that since taking office, the President had consistently made jokes about his hair thinning while governing a nation of over 100 million Filipinos.
Throughout all these years, his sisters had stood by his side; even at times standing in for the role of First Lady to the nation’s first bachelor President.
The President’s youngest sister Kris had been so far his most vocal supporter; being able to utilize her media reach as a television host and actress to let the public catch a glimpse of their family’s private lives.
So far, Kris’ birthday greeting on social media has garnered more than 16,500 likes and almost 700 comments.
