A CHANCE AT FOREVER: Kris Aquino admits dating partner Herbert Bautista

Kris Aquino finally admitted that she and Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista are dating. 

In the April 7 episode of “Aquino and Abunda Tonight,” Kris said her relationship with Bautista is a work in progress.

She also disclosed that Bautista had asked his brother, President Benigno Aquino III, permission to date her.

“Weeks before any speculation about us came out, personal po siyang humingi ng permiso sa kuya ko. Maraming iniisip si P-Noy kaya ang inintindi niya nung time na iyon may gagawin kami ni Mayor na project para sa Quezon City. Until later that same day, nag-text kaming magkapatid, natawa na lang si P-noy at permission to date his sister pala ang hiningi.

“But that gesture gained the respect of my brother and sisters because it showed all of them na malinis ang intention para sa bunso nila. Yes, my family welcomed him during our get together because we want to know him better.”

She also said that this will be the last time she will talk about Bautista in any of her shows, interviews or her social media accounts.

“I promised him that our relationship won’t be a distraction in his obligations to the 3 million residents he took an oath of office to serve. He has given more than 25 years of dedicated public service and my respect for him and his office is such that I don’t want to add stress, but hopefully give him inspiration.

“In turn, Herbert has expressed his admiration and respect for the dedication and hard work I have put into my profession. And he values the love, you, my audience and I have shared value on a daily basis for almost 20 years.”

Aquino talked about what it took to make it work, as well as lessons learned from the past. The greatest lesson, she said, was that she couldn’t do it all by herself.

“Herbert and I are partners in either the failure or success of our being together. And we can strengthen what we have by allowing ourselves to have a chance at forever by keeping quiet and private about what is here and now.

“We are a work in progress and it’s a joint project that both of us are happily undertaking with maturity, respect and commitment.”

Aquino sent netizens abuzz after she posted a picture of her family with Bautista while having a dinner on Saturday, April 5.

The post came two days after an episode of “KrisTV” showed the actor-turned-politician having a playful moment with the host-actress.

The photo, which also showed President Benigno Aquino III and Aquino’s two sons, was accompanied by three heart emoticons and the caption:

“Finally dinner!”

Many of Aquino’s Instagram followers believe this confirms rumors that Bautista is the person who’s making the TV host smile these days.

Aquino has previously admitted that she is currently in love but refused to reveal the identity of her special someone, as she appealed for some privacy.
