After announcing that her much awaited comeback to television was not pushing through as planned last September, Kris Aquino has been busy with her numerous endorsements as well as plans to self-produce her own show along with her family. The country’s “Queen of All Media,” who has been battling with a condition called chronic spontaneous urticaria since she was diagnosed in 2018, shared in her latest Instagram post an update on her sons Joshua and Bimby.
In the same post, Kris also revealed that she wears her pearl jewelry to bed and explained the health reasons behind it. She wrote, “Bimb’s kuya is really loving life in Tarlac... I understand 100% because his lola Cory would always bring him with her whenever she’d go to check on the Aquino center so for him, being there now gives him a sense of both freedom and security...
“I chose to post this picture from this morning because literally and figuratively, my bunso is my pillar of strength. He knew yesterday was tough, I fell asleep before he did, pero pag gising ko, my tiny hand was being held under his very big one... bago kayo sobrang ma weird why naka pearls ako with my oversized men’s white shirt na pantulog ko, I read that pearls help balance hormonal fluctuations and they ease stress and anxiety. They are also supposed to enrich a person’s spiritual life and help in creating a caring and harmonious atmosphere at home or in the workplace. Pearls are also supposed to help love and prosperity surround the wearer.
“So yes, natutulog ako with my pearls on. There was a time several weeks ago na masama talaga ang pakiramdam ko and I read up on all the gems that could help heal me, naloka na yung staff staying with us kasi ang feeling daw nila ready ako mag attend ulit ng wedding sa Crazy Rich Asians—kahit grabe yung fatigue, body aches, and chronic urticaria attack ko that time, natawa na lang din ako nung sinabi ni Bimb, ‘Mama, I hope you do realize that jewelry isn’t medicine?’”
Known as a loving mom to her kids, Kris ended her post with a reminder on how family members should be valued.
“Good night. Please remember that maybe now things may not be going the way you’d envisioned, but when you have FAMILY who love you for everything you are and you’re not, life may not be perfect but it can still be pretty awesome,” she adds.
