"Our relationship as a family started October 28, 1996 and it will soon end this March 23, 2016. A total of 10,354 days working for ABS-CBN, my life's most fulfilling professional journey because of your love, acceptance, and loyalty," Kris said.

"Just like all of you, I love my family. My most valuable life destiny is to be Mama to Kuya Josh and Bimby; and to be a loving, selfless sister to Ate Pinky, Noy, and Viel: a bunso who doesn't give them constant worry because of my health and safety."

Kris also said: "I'm not putting a time frame, but with my type of work, it's realistic to accept by leaving ABS-CBN I'll be replaced and soon forgotten... My sons and I will travel, we'll move to our new home, and I'll eat healthy, sleep early, exercise regularly, and live quiet – everything to make sure Kuya Josh and Bimb have a healthy mother."

Kris' announcement comes after she posted on Sunday, March 6 that she was having problems with her blood pressure. In the same post, she also told her followers she will make an announcement soon.

"My BP Thursday night to Saturday night was elevated, sadly when I have a heavy workload for 3-4 straight days, even on maintenance, it spikes; normalized today because I had complete bed rest yesterday.

"Went to 1st Friday Mass w/ Ate, updated & consulted this weekend w/ all my siblings regarding my health issues because they worry about their bunso... We consulted w/ my team of doctors on what I should do for long term wellness. (Our dad had his heart attack when he was 47 years old, I'm now 45 & the only 1 in our family w/ hypertension)- I obeyed Viel & after a high fiber brunch, I did 40 minutes on my elliptical (she sent me several heart health articles)...

"I'll keep you #MyIGBarkada posted because I need to make some important life choices in the next few days... I am the girl who has passionately loved & prioritized my work, and these decisions aren't easy that's why I'm praying fervently for God's loving guidance. My 2 boys need a healthy mom & that is my primary, long term goal. A healthy Sunday to all," she said.
