  • 1. Anne Hathaway is now a mom!

    The Academy Award-winner actress Anne Hathaway and husband Adam Shulman welcomed their first child last March 24, and it's a boy. The couple named their son Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman. Anne kept relatively mum about her pregnancy, which was first revealed in November last year. She only confirmed it by posting a very pregnant bikini photo on her Instagram last January. A source disclosed that "Anne and Adam are ecstatic to be parents" and that "the baby "is extremely healthy and is surrounded by friends and family." Congratulations! (eonline.com)


    2. Iya Villania schools bashers about exercise and pregnancy

    "#DidYouKnow that EXERCISE reduces the chance of having a caesarean by 75%!!!" TV host Iya Villania wrote as caption to an Instagram video she posted in defense of her continuous workout even while she's pregnant. "If your body was used to an exercise prior to pregnancy, then it will be safe to carry on (adjusting intensity accordingly) as long as your body says it's still okay and your doctor approves," she explained. Iya's posts about her preggy workouts received a slew of negative comments from well-meaning fans. She thanked those who sent her nothing but positive vibes, prayers and support. (pep.ph)

    The furniture giant released a new line for their family and children's furniture and textiles this month. The new series, FLISAT, is made entirely of pine wood, and is designed to "grow" with the children starting from age three to 12. For example, the child’s desk can be tilted and adjusted to three heights. The line has a neutral tone with accent colors and sturdy enough to withstand everyday use. (poppytalk.com)

    The message it delivers might be satirical, but it holds water. New Gender baby Food is making a stand against gender stereotypes with flavors that are named Submissive Spinach and Rough and Tough Rhubarb to Big-Boys-Don't-Cry Carrots and Too-Hot-to-Be-Smart Squash. The baby food labels also come with tag lines such as “Your daughter Should Be the One Whining, Not Your Son”; “Don’t Raise a Stay-At-Home Dad”; and “Real Boys Fight Back.” Gender baby Food aims to raise awareness about gender stereotypes and the way it contributes anxiety and depression among kids.
