TV host-actress Kris Aquino will be one of the primary sponsors in the Melai Cantiveros-Jason Francisco nuptials this December.
Kris disclosed on Friday’s episode of “Kris TV” that Melai had already sent her a “save the date” message, noting her and her youngest son James “Bimby” Yap Jr.’s roles in the couple’s wedding in General Santos City, the bride’s hometown.
“The other day, she texted me to say, ‘Please block off po, ninang po kayo, tapos si Bimb will be our ring bearer,’” she related to her guest co-host Angelica Panganiban, also one of Melai’s closest friends.
Earlier in September, the 25-year-old comedienne admitted that she is pregnant with her ex-“Pinoy Big Brother” housemate and on-and-off boyfriend Jason’s child.
Upon learning of Melai’s condition, Kris shared, “Ako naluha-luha. Sabi ko, ‘Why naman?’ Tapos tanong pa ako nang tanong, ‘Kasalanan ba namin ‘yan? Sa Singapore ba talaga nangyari?’ Sabi niya hindi daw.”
The Queen of All Media also clarified issues surrounding Melai’s disappearance from her morning talk show.
“‘Why did she have to stop?’ – ’yun ang tanong ng lahat. I keep getting these posts sa IG (Instagram) na, ‘Nagtampo ba kayo sa kanya kaya wala na siya sa ‘Kris TV?’
“I keep on telling everybody na it’s a delicate time in her pregnancy. And because we are always outside, hindi naman pwede na matagtag, baka madapa o mapagod,” Kris explained.
Meanwhile, Angelica said that she would also attend Melason’s wedding as well.
“Noong huli ko siyang nakausap parang ang sabi ko, ‘O sige balitaan mo na lang ako sa kasal, puntahan na lang kita.’ Kasi nasa Gen San siya, ’di ba?”
She continued, “Parang hindi siya makapaniwala na susuportahan ko na sila ngayon.”
