Unlike the previous years, Kris Aquino and her sons, Joshua and Bimby, will be spending Christmas in the Philippines.
In an interview with PEP.ph, the actress-host said that they have decided to break the family tradition of celebrating the holidays abroad because of the current situation all over the world due to the pandemic.
"I was so due in March to be in Singapore for my check-up and I hadn’t been able to go because there’s a 14-day quarantine for Philippines,” she said.
"Actually, I wanted to go take the kids abroad. I’m being honest, we were thinking of going to the States, but their curve is much worse than ours so we’re staying put," she added.
Kris said that they also might not be able to join their family for the holidays, as "three of my siblings are seniors and I have a pre-existing condition."
"So they’re the ones who are so strict about us gathering," she explained.
Just last week, Kris made headlines after revealing that she and her sons had a "COVID-19 scare" after one of her drivers tested positive for the coronavirus.
Aside from the pandemic, Kris revealed that the reason she and her sons will not be able to leave the country this year is that they're moving house.
"We have not made plans for Christmas because we are currently moving house,” she said.
"I’m trying my best to give myself privacy by not revealing where we’re moving, and I’m not doing a good job about that because I was not supposed to say we were moving," she added.
