No offense to her ex-husband James Yap, but the Queen of All Media would rather have her son away from doing basketball or any other team sports, for that matter.
Being the son of basketball star James Yap, it is not impossible for Bimby to take after his father’s skills and enthusiasm for the sport one day. With this, it is also not surprising if people would root for the child to follow in his father’s footsteps in court once the right time comes.
But, if it were up to the child’s mother, Kris Aquino, she would rather have Bimby veer away from all the shooting and dribbling – or any other team sports, for that matter. This, she shared when a fan commented on her younger son’s recent growth in height, and mentioned the probability of him being a basketball player like James.
“OMG, ang tangkad pala ni Bimb. Biglang laki. Hindi pa ‘yan I think growth spurt kasi ang bata pa niya. Would you let him do basketball [Kris Aquino]?,” asked the netizen.

Kris then explained her reason why she wouldn’t let it happen. “I’ve said this – ayoko ng team sports because kung masiko or makipag-suntukan ang bunso ko, everyone close to me knows – susugurin ko yung mom nung nanakit and baka mawala lahat ng endorsements namin because for sure, kung anong nagawa ko sa bagwa sa Feng Shui, yun din ang magagawa ko if my baby gets hurt,” answered the TV host-turned-vlogger with reference to her film, the 2004 horror classic, Feng Shui.

As much as she detests the sport, Kris said that she approves of swimming both for Bimby and for Josh. “I feel swimming will be the safest because [it’s] stay in your own lane. I thought of gold but Bimb has asthma and allergic rhinitis so that got crossed out. I love tennis, but Bimb’s not interested. Sila ni kuya [Josh Aquino] are natural water babies – effortless for them to swim. I can barely float.”
