Kris Aquino announced that she already let her son, Bimby talk to his basketball player father James Yap.
In her social media post, the Queen of all Media said that she do not want Bimby to be ‘fatherless’ like her.
It can be remembered that James’ didn’t talk to his son for seven years after several attempts.
“On a happier note: no names shall be named BUT it will be easy for you to figure out… maraming pinagdaanan. maraming hindi pagkakaunawaan pero ayokong masabi na pinipigilan ko si bimb… my own childhood was fatherless because of Martial Law so why’d i subject my bunso to the same fate?” Kris said.
“From the time bimb was 8, he had the freedom to decide… now at 16 i told him- “when someone reaches out after 7 years, and there’s a chance for PEACE, then everyone WINS.” she added.

According to Kris, Bimby was the one who called James on Father’s Day.
“Yesterday Father’s Day, my bunso made me proud – he’s had the number to contact for almost a week, and the reluctance was so real, yet he took the 1st step towards rebuilding a relationship that i know will require some time to repair PERO ang mahalaga ay nagsimula na…” she wrote.
As of writing, James has yet to give any comment about Kris’ revelation.
It can be recalled that James and Kris married in 2005, just five months after their first meeting.
Their relationship turned sour and Kris announced that they got separated in 2010.
James and Kris also faced each other in court because of issues about conjugal properties that ended in a settlement.
The marriage has been annulled by the court in 2012.
