"Ako na lang ang magiging guardian mo pag-alis ni Dad. Hindi ba, parang anghel? Ang saya," Aquino said.
"You can stay with us. My two sons will welcome you," added Aquino, referring to her sons, Josh and Bimby. "Ikaw na 'yung middle child. Halika na, masaya sa amin. Pag-aralin din kita sa Brent."
"Halika na. Dad, akin na lang," the TV host said, addressing Espanto's father.
