Kris Aquino took to social media on Wednesday, January 13, to thank Derek Ramsay for inviting her son, Bimby, to a dinner with his family.
In her post on Instagram, the actress-host explained that she and her son were supposed to have dinner with the Ramsay family last weekend, but "the unpredictability of my autoimmune manifestations (migraine, the chronic spontaneous urticaria, and the fatigue) unfortunately struck."
"As much as I wanted to and tried to, I just couldn’t make myself get out of bed," she added.
She then thanked Derek for making Bimby "feel so welcomed."
"I really appreciate our 16 years of friendship... Hearing from him how tight knit your family is and for him to say the two of us would definitely have been out talked (yes, sinabi niya mas madaldal and opinionated kayo) made me regret missing that experience," she added.
Responding to Kris, Derek praised her son as "a smart and well-mannered kid."
Having known each other for many years now, it was in 2014 when Kris, 49, and Derek, 44, became close friends.
At one point, the two were romantically linked to each other, but both denied ever being more than friends.
