1. Alwyn Uytingco pays tribute to wife Jennica Garcia
When Jennica Garcia guested on Sarap Diva, her husband Alwyn Uytingco was asked to give her a message. Alwyn's reply: "Adik 'yan sa pagiging nanay." He explained Jennica would read so many books when she wanted to learn something about motherhood. "Tambak nga 'yung libro sa bahay, eh. Pero isa-isa niyang tinatapos 'yan. Talagang makikita mo naman na ibang klase 'yung ituturo niya sa'yo na about how to take care of a child the very natural way. Kaya, nakakatuwa kasi ang dami mong puwedeng matutunan sa kanya." As a wife, Alwyn said he couldn't ask for more. "I just want to honor her for being such a great mom and a loving wife. Thank you for your love, mahal. For your overflowing love for our family, and also for being compassionate sa ibang mga nanay. Ipagpatuloy mo 'yung advocacy mo sa pagtulong sa ibang mga nanay, kailangan nila 'yun. And, I'm really proud of you. I love you." (gmanetwork.com)

5. Chinese woman claims she has been pregnant for 17 months An expectant mother from Central China claims she's been pregnant eight months longer than she should be. Wang Shi should have delivered her baby in November last year, but according to local news site Shanghaiist, doctors were not able to deliver her baby last year since it was "underdeveloped." "I feel ashamed of being pregnant for so long. I hope I can successfully and safely deliver my baby next month," she says, adding that the pregnancy has cost them more money than it should. Wang, who refused to have an ultrasound, said she would seek a Cesarean operation next month. Health officials, however, said she could not have been pregnant for 17 months because “there’s no evidence, medical or otherwise, that suggests so.” (inquirer.net)
