  • Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo mark 8 years of marriage

     

    Last year, the couple renewed their wedding vows in an intimate beach ceremony. On the occasion of their eight anniversary this year, Judy Ann asked her husband if he was willing to marry him again for the third time. "Ganito na kami mag kiss ngayon... lalo na 'pag anniversary!" the actress wrote as a caption for an Instagram album. "Eight years, 3 kids, and one dog... it just gets better and better every year with you, bub. I love you forever. Cheers to more! Pakasal tayo uli?" she added. In the comments, Ryan tagged his wife and replied, "Game."

    On his Instagram, Ryan posted a photo of himself and his wife when they watched a Dave Matthews Band in September of last year. He captioned it with lines from the band's song entitled "Crush." "It's crazy I'm thinking/Just knowing that the world is round/Here I am dancing on the ground/Am I right side up or upside down/Is this real or am I dreaming?/Lovely lady/Let me drink you please/I won't spill a drop I promise you," he wrote and used the hashtag #happy8thanniversary.

    The couple, of course, celebrated the occasion with a Thanksgiving mass with family and friends. "Thank you, Lord, for family and friends. I love you bub! And yes, I'll marry you again and again... hanggang mapuno ng singsing 'tong mga daliri ko," Judy Ann wrote as a caption for an Instagram video. She also thanked Jason Magbanua for a video of their renewal of vows. Watch:

    Ryan wrote, "One of my greatest achievements so far is getting the same woman to marry me twice. Yay! Di siya nadala!" as a caption when he posted a screenshot of Jason's video on Instagram. Happy anniversary, Judy Ann and Ryan! (pep.ph)


    Gary Valenciano defends daughter Kiana from bashers

     

    The only daughter of Mr. Pure Energy was recently a target of negative comments on social media. The reason? Her closeness to James Reid and Nadine Lustre, with netizens claiming Kiana is trying to ride on the love team's fame. Even her boyfriend, Sam Concepcion, did not escape the mean fans' bashing. Kiana's response was this tweet: "Cyberbullying, or bullying in any form for that matter, should not be tolerated. Again, your words have power. Use them for good." 

    The tweet didn't stop the bashing, and it's why Gary probably felt the need to tweet this message to his daughter: "Sad to say but some people may have never experienced anything remotely close to the kind of love many have for you..and they may never experience love at all. But you have such love in your heart my daughter that blesses those who encounter you." Gary added that Kiana should let people say what they want, but her family will always be there for her.

    Kiana's mom, Angeli, also chimed in but later deleted the tweets, including one where she says her kids have been bullied before. In one deleted tweet, she said, "My daughter doesn’t use other people to become famous because she doesn’t need to do that. She ran away from the limelight for many years."(pep.ph

    Diana Zubiri reveals secret to getting fit

     "Pumayat ako kasi nagpapa-breastfeed ako ngayon, mga eight months na," she told Cata Tibayan on GMANews 24 Oras. The mom of two also added that she's complementing caring for her baby daughter, Aliyah Rose, with daily exercise and proper diet, mainly cutting down her sugar intake even though she's particularly craving for sweets because she's nursing. 

    Diana said the sacrifice is worth it because she sees her daughter grow up healthy and not prone to sicknesses. She's also proud that she and husband Andy Smith are both hands-on parents even though she went back to work early. They are now busy planning for Aliyah Rose's first birthday party in August. Diana said their little one loves bananas and pajamas so that might be the party's theme. (gmanetwork.com)
