After celebrating her birthday last February 14, Kris Aquino got another happy surprise when her eldest son Joshua decided to pay her a visit in her condo in the city of Taguig. The popular multimedia personality shared the news on her Instagram account last February 19.
In her Instagram video post captioned “REUNION with our Tarlac resident!”, she gives Josh a welcome hug and declared, “Our probinsyano is here to visit us, visit me, pero may schedule.”
The 50-year-old host shared that Josh had already decided that he was only staying for a short visit. Kris sat down with her two sons in order to catch up with Josh who had been staying in Tarlac since late last year. “Babalik daw siya right away. Babalik daw siya at four o’clock. Kakarating mo pa lang babalik ka na agad,” she said.
Josh shared some of the activities that he enjoys doing in the province which includes enjoying the fresh air while riding his e-bike and jogging. When Josh asked his mom if she was happy, Kris said, “Yes kasi you’re here eh. At least dumating ka. Take note gumawa siya ng sarili niyang schedule.” Kris said she last saw Josh on December 26 before he left for Tarlac.
“Ngayon ka pa lang nagpapakita sa amin. Parang dumedma ka sa amin. Feeling ko nag-create ka na ng new life mo in Tarlac,” Kris told Josh. The celebrity mom also shared that Josh has his choice of personal vehicles at his disposal. “Nagdikta rin siya ng mga dadalhin niyang sasakyan doon. Don’t worry, yung cars na gusto mo, they’re yours,” she added.
After announcing the news that she is moving to a beachfront property somewhere in the country, Kris asked Josh if he would like to go with her to which he declined. “Okay. Madali akong kausap. Sure? But you like the beach. Ayaw. Stay ka where? O sige, mahirap kalaban pag nag-decide na na ‘dito ako.’”
In the almost 15-minute video, Kris also explained that the reason behind her son’s reasons for wanting to live in Tarlac is because of his late grandmother, former president Corazon Aquino.
“The room he stays in used to be my mom’s room and the bed that he’s staying in used to be my mom’s bed. So I think mahirap labanan ang memories ng lola. Kasi super naiiintindihan ko kasi I was already na ‘Kris na puwede na magdikta ng schedule’ nag-a-adjust na sa akin when Bimb was born. But when he (Josh) was born, I was not yet at the level I was. All those yung mga program, PTC, events sa school, I was taping, I was shooting, and lola niya talaga ang pumuno sa lahat ng yun.
“So I can truly understand kung bakit dun niya gusto kasi all those times that the mother was busy, I think so many of the working moms can understand this, if the lola was the one who went at pinunuan yung mga hindi kayang gawin nung nanay na nagtatrabaho, then the lola will always be number one and that’s fine with me. Because I could never have raised a boy na ganito ka-generous, ganito ka-bait sa lahat,” she explained.
