Bimby Aquino Yap approves of mom Kris Aquino’s relationship with former Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) secretary Mel Senen Sarmiento.
Days after Kris confirmed she’s now engaged to Sarmiento, she released a video to thank everyone who took the time to congratulate them on social media.
“Salamat sa lahat ng bumati sa amin,” Sarmiento briefly said as Kris asked him about what he had to say.
“Natatawa na lang kami ni Bimb talaga kasi parang galit ka sa pag-thank you sa kanila,” Kris said while laughing over Mel’s response.
Thanking everyone for showering them with congratulatory messages, she went on: “We want to just say thank you very much kasi we have been so touched with all the overwhelming kindness and parang the happiness that you have shown. We are happy.”
But Bimby said he couldn’t be any happier for his mom and Mel whom he said “deserve each other.” “I’m very happy,” Bimby said.
Asked why he’s happy for his mom, he said: “It’s because he loves you. And you can really tell that he wants to take care of you, me, and Kuya. And basically, I can tell ha. Whenever he looks at you, his eyes twinkle twinkle. Basta you can feel he genuinely loves you,” Bimby said.
Bimby, Kris’s son with her former husband, basketball star James Yap, then jokingly added: “And hello, there’s two macho men in this house.”
Kris announced her engagement to Mel last Sunday, October 24.
