Television actress-host Kris Aquino on Tuesday lamented how basketball superstar James Yap is supposedly missing out on being a father to their son Bimby.

Sharing that her invitation to attend their son’s first Communion on Nov. 26 was “ignored” by Yap, Aquino said she hopes her ex-husband would exert effort to spend time with and reach out to Bimby.

“Sana matauhan sya that he’s missing out on being a father to such a good boy. And it’s sad that there is no effort for this kind hearted & generous boy from the other person in this world who should want to be a part of his life. Hindi ko pinipigilan, walang issue na sunduin nya sa school at mag merienda sila, pero wala pong kusa. No sharing even w/ just education expense, sana man lang Time & Effort. SAD, but that’s why Bimb has learned to not look for who’s not there for him,” Aquino said in an Instagram post.

Aquino said she got a reply from Yap regarding her invitation almost a month after sending a texting message in Hawaii.

“While we were in Hawaii, to be precise 2X on Oct 31, 12 hours apart I sent a text informing Bimb’s father about his 1st Holy Communion & extending an invitation. I had gone to Church 2X while on vacation & felt that I should give him the opportunity to be part of this special occasion, primarily because of the 4th Commandment: To honor thy father & mother. I got no reply until Tuesday, Nov 24,” she said.

The presidential sister added that she did her part in “opening the door to communication” to Yap, as she did not want to deprive Bimby of getting to know and spending time with his father.

“I reached a turning point in 2014 when I felt I didn’t want my son deprived of a relationship w/ his father because of pride. We settled amicably in court regarding visitation… I know you know how I dote on my 2 sons, and I prayed for Bimb to feel loved & appreciated not just by me & Kuya, & those close to me, but also by his father & if that meant humbling myself & opening the door to communication, I did do it. I don’t have to say much more, all you have to do is check the social media accounts of both of Bimb’s parents & you’ll see the truth regarding prioritizing parental responsibility,” she added.

Aquino and Yap annulled their marriage in 2012. YG
