The Queen of All Media, Kris Aquino, revealed on her blog post about her relationship with Herbert Bautista that leads to them getting married. On her post titled “The State of My Heart”, Aquino revealed how she felt after being in a relationship when all of a sudden Bautista proposed a marriage. She described the proposal as “the least romantic proposal a woman has ever received.” And, she said Yes.

“This is the first time I’ll publicly acknowledge this, because I can now recall with absolutely no bitterness or regrets; on the first Friday of April nearly a year ago during merienda, he said he was tired, he didn’t want to play games, he was tired of chasing and of running away, and he wanted to feel secure with someone he could grow old with. He said, walang romance, walang lokohan, walang bolahan. Okay na raw ba ko to marry him kasi nga PAGOD na sya?” Aquino said.

“I remember laughing and saying that was probably the least romantic proposal any woman has ever received, but because we were so similar in our weirdness, I was in agreement; I wanted to grow old with him because I knew we’d never be bored conversing, and maybe this was where God led 2 individuals who deserved a chance at life long companionship with maturity, and full acceptance of equally colorful pasts,” she said.

Aquino furthermore narrated their love affair; from how Bautista asked for her number, how he gives her coffee every morning, to considering moving in and living together.

Bautista broke up with her after Aquino revealed on April 7, 2014, on Aquino and Abunda Tonight, that they were partners. The next day, Bautista broke up with her over the phone; that was before Bimb’s 7th birthday.

Months past, they become friends again. But for her to cover up the pain, she kept on traveling, went to New York, Japan, Boracay, Thailand, and Hongkong. She avoided the places that could remind her about her broken love with him.
