Kris and James having Baby James baptized May 19


"May 19, a month exactly after [I gave birth], but it's very small. It's for the family talaga," reveals Kris Aquino about Baby James's baptism.


"Malaking pagbubuti na ni Kris at natutuwa rin ako na nag-gain na si baby James. Noong pinanganak siya, 4 pounds. Ngayon ata, 4.6 na. Mabuti naman at maraming gatas si Kris, so ito'y nakakabuti sa kaniyang baby," said former President Corazon Aquino about the health of her daughter, Kris, and her newborn grandson, Baby James.

Kris exclaimed, "Yes, thank God!"

Kris and her husband, James Yap, are now preparing for their firstborn's christening.

"May 19, a month exactly after [I gave birth], but it's very small. It's for the family talaga," revealed Kris.

She also added that they decided not to make Baby James his daddy's Junior.

She explained, "Ang nasa birth certificate is strictly James Aquino Yap. That's it. ‘Yon na ‘yon! Ganoon kasimple! Kasi in-explain ng Mommy ko sa akin na kung sinunod sa pangalan ni James, na James Carlos Agravante Yap, at naging Junior, mada-drop ‘yong Aquino. Si James mismo nagsabi na para ma-retain ‘yong Aquino, James na lang."

In a separate interview, Cory Aquino noted, "Noong una iniisip din ni Kris na baka nickname Jay. J-A-Y [James Aquino Yap], pero nung hindi pa napapanganak, si Josh kept saying Baby James. Pero sabi ko kasi after, huwag nang ‘baby' iyan kasi mamaya ang laki-laking baby niyan!"

Mrs. Aquino gave this advice to her TV host-actress daughter: "Basta unang-una sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Kris, makinig ka kung anong sasabihin ng mga duktor mo dahil medyo maselan yung pinagdaanan mo. Dalawang beses ka inopera at nawalan ka pa ng dugo. Binigyan ka pa ng blood transfusion.' Sabi ko, ‘Intindihin mong mabuti [ang sinasabi ng mga duktor]. Alam kong sabik na sabik ka na bumalik sa trabaho, pero tanungin mo muna sa mga duktor mo kung kailan ka maaaring bumalik sa telebisyon.'"

Meanwhile, Kris will be staying at their rented home in Oakwood with her baby and James until she fully recovers. She still has bruises in her arms caused by the many tests she had to undergo during her hospital stay.
