MANILA -- Television-host Kris Aquino congratulated her former husband James Yap for being named Finals MVP trophy during the recently concluded the 2014 PBA Governor's Cup.

In her morning show "KrisTV" aired on Wednesday, Aquino also clarified why she wanted the best-of-five finals series between Yap's San Mig Coffee and Rain or Shine to end.

"Nag-congratulate ako kay James. Sabi ni James, 'Thank you sinabi ng fans pinag-pray mo ako.' Tapos sinabi ko, 'Hello pinag-pray ko na matapos na no para hindi na kayo makabawas sa rating ng A&A (Aquino & Abunda Tonight),'" Aquino told her guest co-host Pokwang.

"At mali pa pala ako. Kasi that day nung nagpi-pray ako, wala na pala, last na pala talaga 'yon," she continued.

"Tapos sinabi niya (Yap), 'Na-touch pa naman ako na nag-pray ka.' Yeah, tapos sa dugout niya lang natandaan na i-greet si Bimby but it's okay," Aquino added, referring to their son James "Bimby" Yap Jr.

After receiving his MVP trophy, Yap initially thanked God and dedicated his trophy to his fans, his manager, his coach Tim Cone, his teammates and girlfriend Michela Cazzola.

He also dedicated their victory to his son during an interview while he and his teammates were celebrating at the dugout.
