Vice President Leni Robredo got "love, love, love" from Kris Aquino and son Joshua when she visited Tarlac province affirming the clan's support for her presidential candidacy.

Robredo thanked Aquino for her "100% support". Josh Aquino handed the balloons with her mother's signature line and gave the Vice President an elbow bump.

"Let me just thank Josh for surprising me with a welcome balloon when I arrived at the DIWA Center for an event. He is a Tarlac resident already," she said in a Facebook post.

"Thank you also, Kris, for the 100% support. PNoy may be gone now but Josh being there really meant a lot," she added, referring to the late President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III.
