Actress-host Kris Aquino promised to be the one to purchase the engagement ring if and when her only brother, President Benigno Aquino III, decides to get married.

That's because the engagement ring of their mother, former president Corazon Aquino, was handed down to her.

On her morning show "Kris TV" on Tuesday, guest Karla Estrada observed that the host wears two rings, prompting Aquino to explain that one of them was the engagement ring of her mother.

The other one is her new diamond ring, which was given by her sisters Ballsy Aquino-Cruz and Pinky Aquino-Abellada.

"In fair, blue white diamond," she said, referring to her mother's engagement ring. "Tapos ibinigay sa akin kasi hiningi ko."

"Sinabi ko, 'Mom, at least you know it's going to me. I will buy na lang for Noy if he'll ever get married.' Gumanoon ako. Tapos sabi ng mom, she told my other sisters, 'Eh siya ang humingi eh di kanya na,'" she added.

According to Kris, the heirloom piece came from Aurora Aquino, the mother of her father, slain senator Benigno Aquino Jr. "Original setting, inayos lang," she said.

Kris said she plans to give the ring to her youngest son James "Bimby" Yap Jr. "para from generation to generation kasi it came from the mom of my dad."
