Pagkatapos namin malaman na patay na si papa, ang sabi niya kay mama, ’Ma, ilang taon si Kris nang mamatay si Ninoy?’ Baka raw puwede siyang maging Kris Aquino paglaki niya (Jillian wants to be in showbiz. When we found out our father had died, she told my mother, ’Ma, how old was Kris when Ninoy died?’ She said maybe she could be like Kris Aquino when she grows up)."

 

In reponse to Jillian’s kind words, Aquino posted this message on her Twitter page: "My sister Viel just text me what Tricia Robredo said in her speech. I am HUMBLED by the honor of Jillian wanting to be like me when she grows up because like me she lost her Dad at 12 years old."
