"It was a happy, beautiful reunion," the King of Talk said. "Dahil matagal kaming hindi nagkita ni Kris. Text lamang at telepono kami nagkakausap, but it was different seeing her."

Boy admitted that he was emotional when he visited Kris' home in Orange County, Los Angeles last Oct. 25.

"We had a nice interaction, we had a nice conversation. Marami po kaming napag kwentuhan. Sabi nga ng kanyang anak, ang aking inaanak na si Bimby (Aquino), 'Alam niyo po Ninong I'm back to my four-year-old self. Parang nakikita ko po na kayong dalawa ay nag sho-show,'" he said.

Boy shared that his good friend and former workmate, Kris, is in good hands under the care of excellent nurses and doctors in the US. He confirmed that Kris will need to stay in the US for another 15 to 18 months due to the availability of her doctors and medicines there.

"We are praying na sana mapaikli po ito para makasama ho ulit natin si Kris dito sa Pilipinas," he said.

The host said Kris wanted him to thank her fans on her behalf. 

"She wanted me to let you know, kayo po, na sobra ang kanyang pasasalamat. Hindi niya kinakailangang kaibigan, kakilala, katrabaho, kamag-anak, but alam niyang nagdadasal ang lahat. Napakaraming tao nagdadasal para sakanya," Boy said, adding that Kris wishes that they pray for her family and support system, too.

"I just missed her. I just missed her. And I pray that one of these days, makita natin ang aming pag-uusap," Boy said. He added that he will be giving more updates on Kris' condition soon.

Boy concluded his message by affirming his love for Kris, who he mentioned enjoys watching his shows regularly.

"I love you, I love you Bimb, Josh, everybody in that house. Mahal na mahal ko po kayo at maraming salamat sa panahon na binigay mo sa akin, Krissy," he said.

Last Oct. 27, Kris posted about the reunion on her Instagram account and to greet Boy an advanced happy birthday.

“Happy Birthday (Oct 29) to the keeper of all my secrets, the one who assured me that come what may he’ll be there for my sons, and the friend who until now fights my battles with me,” she wrote. “To my other brother, I love you completely. #lovelovelove” 

In 2007, Kris and Boy hosted the morning talk and lifestyle show of ABS-CBN Boy & Kris. The show aired its final episode on February 13, 2009. They later reunited in 2014 for another show called Aquino & Abunda Tonight, but it was canceled after a year when Kris announced her departure from the show.
