    Karel Marquez and Sean Fariñas are expecting their first child

    Calling it the "Best Father's Day Gift Ever," Sean was ecstatic over Karel's gift/greeting/announcement that she's pregnant with their first child! Meanwhile, Karel reposted Sean's photo on Instagram and captioned it, "Can't wait to see you, baby three, I wonder what your gender will be?" Inside the gift box are six (yes, six!) pregnancy test kits and a handwritten note from Karel, which reads, "The only thing better than having you as my husband is Keiley and Kyler having you as their dad... and to our baby #3!" Karel and Sean tied the knot on December 1 last year. "Can you believe, out of all the months and days, God planned it just in time for Father’s Day?" she added in her note. Keiley and Kyler are Karel's children from a previous relationship.

    Karel's Father's Day gift also included a whiskey bottle with a unique label that says "Baby Fariñas Coming Soon," and a copy of the book, The Expectant Father. "Can't wait to experience the wonderful journey again! Thank You, Lord!" she added in the caption. Baby Fariñas is due to arrive in February 2018. Congratulations! (pep.ph)


    JUST IN -- Joross Gamboa and wife Katz welcome second child!

    Earlier today, Kapamilya actor Joross Gamboa had a belated Father's Day gift: second son John Kody, who was born at the Asian Hospital and Medical Center in Alabang, Muntinlupa City. "Thank you Lord for my wife's safe CS operation... All is well... God is Good All the Time!," Joross captioned the very first photo of his newborn. He also documented part of Katz's preparation for the big day, which included putting on her makeup before the big push! 

    Joross and Katz announced via Instagram in December 2016 that they have a bun in the oven and called it the "Best Christmas Gift!" Katz also had a low-key family maternity shoot a few months before she gave birth. Baby boy John Kody joins big brother, one-year-old Jace Kyler. Congratulations! (pep.ph)


    Albert Martinez is going to be a lolo soon!
    Courtesy of his daughter Alyanna Martinez, the veteran actor said it's the best Father's Day gift that he ever received. "I received a gift from Alyanna in a box. When I opened it, I saw a note, and then I saw a bib," he said during an interview on DZMM on Sunday. "And then I saw, we're not sure if it's a boy or a girl, but for sure, you're a lolo," Martinez added. Albert says the child's gender doesn't matter, "what's important is healthy lumabas yun bata."

    Alyanna also made the announcement by greeting her husband Roy Macam on Instagram. "Surprise! Happy first father's Day!" she captioned a photo of an ultrasound image of their unborn baby, a book, and a custom onesie. Congratulations! (abs-cbn.com)


    Beyoncé's twins are here!

    "Bey and Jay are thrilled and have started sharing the news with their family and closest friends," a source told People on June 17, and Queen Bey's father Matthew Knowles finally confirmed it on June 18. "They're here!" he tweeted, along with a greeting card that read," Happy birthday to the twins! Love, Grandad." 

    The newest members of the Carter family join big sister Blue Ivy, 5. There have been speculations that Beyonce gave birth to a boy and a girl after a bouquet with two giant baby-foot-shaped pink and blue balloons was photographed being dropped off in the same Los Angeles hospital that Jay-Z and Blue Ivy were seen the day before, but no other details, including the twins’ gender, weight, names, or exactly when they were born, have been officially released. Nonetheless, congratulations to the Carter family! (people.com)

    WATCH: Daddy's Home 2 trailer is here!

    Two years after the hit comedy film Daddy's Home starring Mark Wahlberg (as dad Dusty) and Will Farrell (as Brad) was shown in theaters, we get a first look at its sequel. While the first movie introduced wrestler-actor John Cena as Dusty's new dad rival, the follow-up movie is all about grandpas. In Daddy's Home 2, Brad and Dusty already have a co-fatherhood arrangement, but it gets disrupted by the arrival of their fathers: Mel Gibson as Dusty’s old-school dad and John Lithgow as Brad's overly affectionate father. It's going to be a wild adventure when the two meet as the family spends the holidays together. Daddy’s Home 2 opens in cinemas in November. (ew.com)
