Their mom, Tates Gana, may refuse to speak up, despite repeated attempts from her reporter-friends to do so.
But Athena, 18, and Harvey, 10, her children by Quezon City mayor Herbert Bautista are more transparent with their emotions regarding their dad’s relationship with host-actress Kris Aquino.
“Depressed ang mga bata. They will leave for the US with their mom as soon as possible,” a reliable source said.
The same source added that Tates, Herbert’s girlfriend for 20 years, is keeping quiet because “ayaw na niyang umepal pa.”
The source said Tates learned about Herbert and Kris from somebody else while the children learned about it from media.
Tates reportedly wanted to run as Quezon City councilor but Herbert didn’t allow her. As Herbert’s unofficial assistant, she has been attending to Quezon City residents’ needs for years and knows the city inside out.
It will be recalled that Kris herself admitted that he and Quezon City mayor Herbert Bautista are an item during the an episode of "Aquino & Abunda Tonight."
“Now there is somebody in my life who is special. Weeks before any speculation about us came out, personal po siyang humingi ng permiso sa kuya ko (President Noynoy Aquino),” Kris said on “KrisTV”
The Kris-Herbert love team has since been named KrisTek.
