MANILA, Philippines -- James Yap Jr. or Bimby, youngest son of President Aquino's sister Kris Aquino, also wants to be president someday.

In Kris's morning show "KrisTV," Bimby said he will follow in the footsteps of his uncle, President Benigno "Noynoy" Auqino III.

"Mama, I'm the next president," Bimby told his mom Kris, who said: "OK why not?"

"I'm the next president because I am the [nephew] of the President," Bimby added.

Kris said her son should learn to speak Tagalog and other dialects.

"You have to speak Tagalog very well. Now pa lang matuto na tayong mag-Cebuano, Ilocano at Kapampangan at Waray. Lahat yan aaralin na natin Bimby kung yan ang (gusto mo)," she said.

Bimby is Aquino's son with former husband, James Yap.
