  • Ian Veneracion has some spot-on marriage advice

    "Huwag makipagdebate sa asawa." That's what the heartthrob actor and dad of three said when Moments host Gladys Reyes asked him about the most important lesson he has learned in marriage. "At 'pag galit siya, tumahimik ka na lang. Wala kang panalo," Ian added half-jokingly. And that's just the snippet of his interview which aired recently on Net25. 

    It must be working for Ian, as he and his non-showbiz wife Pam Gallardo have been married for almost two decades now -- and are still going strong. They have three kids: Draco, 17, Deirdre, 15, and Buccio, 9. Ian has kept most of his personal life private all these years, and he has been quoted as saying that the role he's most proud of is being a dad. 


    Rufa Mae Quinto shows off post-preggy body in one-piece bikini

    The sexy comedienne celebrated her birthday last week and spent it by having her much-deserved me-time. "Time for myself. This is how I celebrated my birthday weekend," Rufa Mae captioned a photo of her lounging at Discovery Shores Boracay. For her birthday, she and husband Trevor Magallanes brought three-month-old daughter Alexandria on her first airplane trip. It's also the little girl's first time at the beach!

    In another photo taken during her birthday vacay, Rufa Mae hinted that she is slowly regaining her confidence. She has been very candid about her battle with the baby blues during the first few months after giving birth, and it's inspiring how she is rising above it.  


    Kean Cipriano serenades sleeping Stellar 

    The vocalist of band Callalily is not new to writing songs, but it is the first time we hear Kean share a song he has written for his and actress Chynna Ortaleza's daughter Stellar. The title of the song is "Hand in Mine," and Kean shared videos of himself playing the guitar and singing his ode to his daughter. Part of the lyrics read: "I trust that you will know what's right and wrong/When you're sad, remember that I wrote a song for you, My Darling." If you read the rest of the lyrics, it conveys the messages that all fathers pledge for their kids (especially for their daughters). Kean promises that he will be there for Stellar: "Until the end of time/Your hand in mine/And never will I let you go."

    In an Instagram video post, Scarlet has proven yet again that she has a healthy sense of humor. The video shows the adorable tot seated on her high chair with dad Hayden trying to converse with her in Chinese. Scarlet Snow sounds like she's speaking in Chinese, with the intonation and all, except that she's faking it. Hayden laughed and referred to it as "alien talk." She continued the ruse end eventually burst out in laughter, too. "Daddy and I, we have our own language. I'll give a shout out to anyone who can interpret what I said. Go!" the caption for the video reads. Scarlet has been taking lessons, and we've seen her count in Chinese, so we know she knows a little bit of the language.
