Kris Aquino will soon be back on the big screen through I Love You Hater with Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto. Shooting began last Wednesday, April 25, so Kris’s long working hours have already affected her time with her sons Joshua and Bimby.
The Queen of the Online World and Social Media’s youngest son Bimby thought of giving JoshLia presents as a sign of gratitude.
“He asked me this afternoon what he could send #joshlia to say THANK YOU to them for taking care of his mama because he wasn’t around. I said mukhang mahilig yung 2 sa chocolates & parang walang conflict sa endorsements,” she shared on Instagram.
Kris admitted that she wanted to “adopt” her co-star Joshua because she was moved by his story. Joshua opened up that he grew up without a mom and was raised by his father, grandmother, and uncle.
“I really felt sympathy for him because he grew up w/ no mom... True naman, I told my 2 boys that I do want to ‘adopt’ [Joshua] kasi na-affect talaga ko sa na-share niya about growing up na walang mom... marunong si God, he had a good uncle na priest, a loving lola, and a hardworking dad,” she wrote.
What touched the hearts of her followers was Bimby’s personal message to Joshua even though he requested to leave out some parts of what he wrote.
“Dear Kuya Joshua, I hope you… ate Julia. She is the most smartest [sic], prettiest, funniest woman in the whole world but if you do… and mama wants to adopt you so I can teach you to be good and respectful to women if you are a good boy you shall be rewarded in heaven but if you are a bad boy you shall burn and…so thank you for being kind to mama. I hope the chocolates don’t make you fat,” he wrote.
