In her posts on her personal Instagram account, actress LJ Reyes shared some touching conversations she has had with her seven-year-old son Aki. In one post, the single mom admitted how touched she was when Aki got curious and asked her how if she knew how much he loves her.
Aki said.. How much do I love you Mommy? Do you know? I said.. How much? Aki said.. I love you up to the heavens! My heart melted and I said.. Then I love you to the heaven and back! I don’t know where exactly heaven is! All I is know that it’s a magnificent and holy place. And for my son to tell me he loves me up to the heavens, it is just beyond words..❤️
In another post, she shared a photo of herself and Aki as a baby because she gets sentimental whenever Aki asks her if she would remember him even when she goes to heaven.
Another Aki story.. Hours earlier, he came up to me and asked me: “Mom, when you die, would you still remember me?” Wanted to make it into a joke, and ask why he would want me to die. But looking at how serious he was, I just said: “Well, what I read in the Bible says that when we go to heaven, we will be brothers and sisters. Honestly, I am not sure. But remember this. I will always keep you in my heart and in my mind. How bout mommy? Will you forget about mommy?” Aki said: “Never mommy! I love you!” And our talk ended with a warm hug and sealed it with a kiss! Posting this old photo coz our convo made me feel so senti! I want to just keep him in my arms like this all day long and forever!😭 oh how time passes so quickly!!! #FlashbackFriday
Aki is LJ’s son with ex-boyfriend Paulo Avelino. She is now in a relationship with Paolo Contis who recently went with them on a family vacation in Japan.
