She might not be active on television nowadays, but the Queen of Philippine Media, Kris Aquino, is still making headlines. Aside from being the meme of the moment, Kris just announced that she is moving to a beachfront front house to enjoy the probinsya life with her son, Bimby Aquino.
The 49-year-old shared the news via a 15-minute Instagram video after playing the trending “jojowain o totropahin challenge” with a lot of famous names in showbiz and politics. She also explained to her followers that she plans to visit her other son, Josh, who is residing in Tarlac, every six weeks. “Babalik lamang ako sa Central Luzon every six weeks para ma-check ang aking panganay, si kuya Josh, na nahanap na ang true happiness niya in Tarlac. (I will only be coming back to Central Luzon every six weeks to check in on my first born, Josh, who found true happiness in Tarlac.)”
So why is she moving to the beach? For her health. Amid the ongoing pandemic, she has decided to stay away from the city to take care of her health because she’s the only parent her 13-year-old son has.
“Kuya Josh and Bimb will always remain the greatest priorities of my life, but I can only give them my love and their much-needed sense of security if I do everything I can to protect my health,” she said. “Especially because we all know my immunity is compromised because of my autoimmune conditions.”
Kris did not disclose the location of her beach house though, which is totally reasonable because sharing this information might compromise her and her family’s safety. While not everyone may get to enjoy the privilege of opting to move out of crowded Metro Manila, it’s nice to know Kris clearly knows what’s truly important: family.
