Kris Aquino expressed happiness over the fact that her six-year-old son James "Bimby" Yap Jr. has inherited her love for performing.
In the September 2 episode of her morning show Kris TV, a message from Kris was aired talking about her desire to focus on being a stage mother for her son.
"More than half of my life, I'd been living in the world of entertainment at masaya akong malaman na namana din ng aking anak na si Bimby ang aking hilig to be in front of the camera.
"Pero sa ngayon ay magpapaka-stage mother muna ako para ma-guide ang aking bunso sa kanyang big screen debut. For this year's Metro Manila Film Festival, si Bimb muna ang bida as I work behind the camera bilang isa sa mga producers under my very own film outfit Kris Aquino Productions."
Kris then acknowledged her co-producers for the movie My Little Bossings namely OctoArts Films, APT Entertainment and MZet TV Productions of Vic Sotto.
She revealed that Bimby underwent a look test and pictorial for the upcoming Metro Manila Film Fest entry, which will be directed by Marlon Rivera (of Ang Babae sa Septic Tank fame).
"True to life ang aking role dahil I will be playing the mom of Justin, ang name ng role ni Bimb dito sa aming movie," said Kris in her introduction.
This look test and pictorial also marked the first time that Ryzza Mae had the chance to meet her co-star Bimby.
As soon as Bimby met Ryzza Mae, Kris instructed her son to hug and kiss his leading lady in the MMFF entry.
Bimby dutifully shook hands with Ryzza Mae and gave her a hug before running away.
Kris again asked Bimby to kiss the eight-year-old TV host-actress and Bimby obliged by placing his cheek against Ryzza Mae's cheek.
They then took the time to open the gift basket that Bimby gave to his leading lady.
The two young stars then sat down for a brief interview, with Kris facilitating the interaction of Bimby and Ryzza Mae.
Bimby asked Ryzza Mae: "Who's your boyfriend?"
To this, the GMA-7 TV host-actress shook her head and answered, "Bata pa po ako."
Kris pointed out that Bimby already has a girlfriend. She even asked her six-year-old son to give the name of his girlfriend and Bimby obliged by saying "Aurora."
Kris then told her son Bimby, "I told you, Ryzza Mae is now your leading lady so she's going to be your pretend girlfriend."
In her Instagram account, Kris shared photos of her with Bimby, Ryzza Mae as well as her co-stars Vic Sotto and Aiza Seguerra.
She also shared a photo collage of her hugging the kids with this caption: "Through the eyes of children everything can still be beautiful, exciting & inspiring. Thank you for today because Bimb & Ryzza renewed my faith that LIFE IS WONDERFUL! Good night."
