  • Jake Ejercito attends dad Erap's birthday bash with Ellie

    Ellie Eigenmann was there after all at the grand 80th birthday celebration of her lolo, former president and now Manila mayor Joseph "Erap" Estrada, held last night at The Manila Hotel. "80 calls for a selfie," her dad Jake, who was with her at the party, captioned an Instagram photo of the three of them. 

    This goes against an earlier claim by Atty. Ferdinand Topacio, Jake's legal counsel, who had said that Ellie's mom Andi Eigenmann "won’t let Ellie participate in the program of Mayor Erap’s 80th birthday on April 19 because of the case," referring to her ex- Jake's petition to get joint custody of Ellie.

    "Katatapos lang ni Ellie ng kanyang song recording para sa birthday [ni Erap] last Wednesday at may video pa pong ipinadala sa kuya ko," Andi even said in a statement.

    Jake's reason for filing the case was so he could spend time with his daughter regularly. According to Atty. Topacio, as it is now, "kung anong mood ni Andi, yun ang visitation. Kapag feel niya ngayon at ka-text mong 'Puwede bang hiramin si Ellie?' pag good mood si Andi, okay, fine. Kapag bad mood siya, ayaw niya."

    Jerika Ejercito engaged to Spanish triathlete boyfriend

    The eldest daughter of Manila mayor Joseph "Erap" Estrada with former actress Laarni Enriquez is engaged to Spanish triathlete boyfriend Miguel Aguilar Garcia. Jerika officially changed her Facebook relationship status to "engaged" on April 12. "It's official we are engaged. It happened in Jordan right next to the Dead Sea. Unfortunately, no photos or videos since it was literally just the two of us that night by the balcony on the beach. It was magical," Jerika wrote on Facebook.

    She and Miguel made their relationship official in June 2016, around the same time her ex-boyfriend, actor Bernard Palanca, also announced that they have called it quits. Jerika clarified, however, that they were no longer together since 2015. Jerika and Bernard have a son together, two-year-old Isaiah, who, based on her Instagram posts, gets along well with Miguel. Congratulations! (pep.ph)

    Kris also took to Instagram to greet her second son a happy birthday. She wrote, "Ten years ago you came into this world- suddenly one human being made our lives brighter, funnier, happier, more inspiring, more gratifying, more colorful, and more meaningful. Every day you bring us wisdom, adventure, optimism, and laughter. Most of all, for us you are LOVE personified," the Queen of all media said. 

    Kris had credited James' girlfriend, Michela Cazzola, to the improved relationship between Bimb and his father. While it took some time before Bimb met his baby brother MJ, James and Mic's son, Kris had said that she and her boys like her very much. Happy Birthday, Bimb! (abs-cbn.com)


    Serena Williams is pregnant -- and won Aussie Open while infanticipating!


    The tennis ace took to Snapchat to announce that she's 20 weeks pregnant with her and her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian's child. The photo shows Serena taking a mirror selfie in a bright yellow one-piece swimsuit that perfectly hugged her tiny but already visible baby bump. "Fighting to get up this morning," she captioned it. The couple had been quietly engaged since December 2016, with Serena announcing it via a poem posted on Reddit. 

    But that's not all! Serena won the first tennis grand slam event of the year, the Austrailian Open, held in January --- which means that she may have been already pregnant when she won! Indeed, a woman's body is just amazing. Congratulations! (people.com)
