Kris Aquino and  husband James Yap, along with their son, baby James, show their support for Noynoy during his presidential bid announcement at Club Filipino on September 9, 2009.

 MANILA - Actress-host Kris Aquino, together with husband James Yap and son James Yap Jr., accompanied her only brother, Sen. Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III, as he formally announced his candidacy for president in next year's elections.

Noynoy, son of democracy icon Corazon Aquino and the late Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino Jr.,announced at Club Filipino in Greenhills, San Juan City Wednesday morning that he is running in next year's presidential election under the Liberal Party.

In an interview with ABS-CBN's morning show "Umagang Kay Ganda," Kris said she and sisters Ballsy, Viel and Pinky, who were also present during the announcement, support the political decision of their brother.

"Tinuro sa amin talaga na kailangan support each other," Kris said.

"Napag-usapan na namin bilang pamilya ang lahat ng mga plano at kung paano namin hahati-hatiin ang aming mga trabaho," Kris added.

Kris said that since Noynoy made his decision, he would be needing funds for his campaign in 2010.

"He needs fund, okay. Let's be honest. Kaya kailangang magtrabaho nang magtrabaho para matulungan siya," she said.
