  • Marian Rivera shares homemade baby food recipe

    The Kapuso Primetime Queen has always loved to cook (see the rest of her recipes here), and she demonstrated her skills in the kitchen on Regine's Velasquez's lifestyle show, Sarap Diva. She cooked Chicken with Papaya and Spinach (watch above), which Zia loves. On cooking for her daughter, Marian said, "Ayoko ng bili o inutos ko lang. Gusto ko, ako ang gagawa ng kinakain ng anak ko. Para alam ko kung anong nandoon." Marian, who credits her Lola for teaching her to love veggies, recognized that not all working moms could probably cook all the time for their kids. But, when they can cook, she encouraged moms to pick "yung totoong pagkain, mas masustansya, mas hindi magiging pihikan." Marian revealed she was also a fan of bulk cooking, where she cooks a lot of food, divide it already in portions, and chill or freeze.  "Huwag lang patagalin nang masyadong matagal. Maximum of three or four days," she added. (gmanetwork.com)

    Diego Loyzaga moves on from word war with dad Cesar MontanoAfter the Kapamilya actor posted on social media proof that he tested negative for drugs, Diego states he bears no ill feelings towards his dad, Cesar Montano. Diego, who came out with several social media posts, ranting about his father's lack of support and presence in his life, among others, tells Pep.ph in an exclusive interview, "Mahal ko ang Tatay ko. Mahal na mahal ko ang tatay ko. Usap? Ilang taon na ‘yan ang hinihingi namin sa kanya." In the interview, Diego took the opportunity to thank his mom Teresa Loyzaga, his Tita Sunshine Cruz, and his half-sisters. "My Tita [Sunshine] and I have been through a lot since the years that we've known each other. I’m happy sa statement na nilabas niya. Masaya ako na nasabi niya ang mga bagay na yun," he said. "To see that they supported me after mga nangyari, touching talaga yun na nakita ko kahit half-sisters ko sila. Dugo e, family," he said. Diego also shared his mom's wise words: "I think we should just move from that, and we’re all just looking for a better future, a better tomorrow. We’re all just hoping na gumanda ang lahat." (pep.ph)



    Georgina Wilson's son Archie has pajamas "nicer" than his mom's

    While we wait to get a good look at Georgina Wilson's baby boy, we already know that, at two months old, he is becoming a fashion icon via his designer pajamas. "Archie's pajamas are so much nicer than mine, haha," Georgina wrote on Instagram, referring to her son's Gucci onesie overalls. Georgina's cousin, Isabelle Daza, even posted an Instagram story that Georgina posted a screenshot of on her Instagram. Baby Archie has been tagged as one of the country's future heartthrobs. It looks like we'll be seeing more of Baby Burnand on Insta-stories. (pep.ph)

    The Guardians of the Galaxy star took to Instagram to announce the birth of her third son! "Marco and I are elated to share the news of the birth of our son Zen," Zoë wrote. The couple is already parents to twin sons Cy Aridio and Bowie Ezio, who turned 2 in November last year. "We couldn’t feel more blessed with the new addition to our family. #threeboys... oh boy!" she added. The Instagram photo shows the twin boys playing with their baby brother on a play mat -- all of their faces obscured from the camera. Zoë and Marco have always preferred their personal life to be kept private. The couple did not announce that they are expecting another addition to their family of four. Zoë had spoken candidly before about her post-pregnancy body, that "everything" still hurts and "feels uncomfortable" months after giving birth in 2014. We're hoping his son's name Zen will influence her postpartum recovery this time around. Congratulations!  (people.com)


    Say hello to Siri-like Barbie Hologram!


    Barbie doll maker Mattel unveiled the semi-translucent and chatty artificial intelligence (AI) figure which lives inside a pink plastic box at the New York Toy Fair. This new Barbie innovation is far from the talking Hello Barbie doll released in 2015, which prompted some security concerns by parents. This one functions more like a great digital assistant, engaging in conversations about interests, favorite foods, and telling jokes. She responds to voice commands starting with "Hello Barbie" and is designed to answer questions about the weather, news, and is ready to do "anything a digital assistant can do," even change her looks, a Mattel representative said. Hello, Barbie also does not save recordings to its servers unlike home digital assistants Amazon Echo or Google Home. Hello, Barbie Hologram is rumored to cost not lower than $300 when it hits the shelves later this year. (mashable.com)


    Look: Upcoming Lisa Frank-inspired makeup!

    The whimsical design brand teamed up with Glamour Dolls Makeup to create a cruelty-free line inspired by the rainbow-splashed Frank products of your childhood. The Kickstarter campaign video said the line would feature a lip balm, liquid eyeliner, a "matte mousse" foundation, a highlighter, lipstick, and a vegan leather makeup bag. To tease the Lisa Frank supporters and makeup enthusiasts, an angled brush featuring the brand's signature rainbow unicorns is already available for pre-sale on Glamour Dolls Makeup's website. Glamour Doll founder Jessica Romano says the concept of a Lisa Frank collaboration felt like a natural fit for her brand, which features bright tubes of glitter liner and lip balms packaged in doughnut-shaped cases. The campaign needs $30,000 to launch the line, and as of press time, it already has more than $81,000 pledged.  (mashable.com)
