  • 1. Look! Mariel Rodriguez' underwater maternity shots!

    The mom-to-be released a sneak peek of her maternity shoot with Nice Print Photography, but little did we know that it included underwater shots. “My serene moment with Isabelle!!! Baby, it's our first swim," she wrote as caption to one of the photos. Mariel and Robin Padilla revealed in an interview with Pep.ph during Mariel's dream baby shower that her due date is on November 21. She will be flying to the U.S. on September 23 to give birth there. 



    2. Joy Sotto's baby girl hits a new milestone!

    She can now roll over on her tummy! "Amari at 3 months and 3 weeks old. She didn't mind doing it over and over again with Mama, Dada and the Kuyas cheering for her!" Joy Sotto wrote as caption for a video she posted on Instagram. She recently revealed the ups and downs of raising four boys close in age. The new mom also said that in finally welcoming her unica hija, it was an answered prayer -- and everybody in the family feels the same way, too.


    3. New emotional trailer for Trolls movie

    The first trailer brought us happy feels, so the second one just had to tug at our heartstrings. The latest trailer for the movie Trolls also features clips of the actors Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick talking about their characters grumpy troll Branch and happy troll Poppy, respectively. The particularly moving scene features Branch pausing to cheer up his usually upbeat companion, Poppy, and help her rediscover her "True Colors," the song Justin and Anna performed to promote the film before the first trailer was released. Trolls hits theaters on November 4. (ew.com)
