  • 1. Neri Naig reveals baby boy's full name

    It turns out, he's not going to be a "the third." We already know that the new parents planned to name their baby after Chito, whose real name is Alfonso, but yesterday, Neri posted more photos of their little bundle of joy to reveal his full name and nickname: Miguel "Miggy" Alfonso Miranda. On giving birth, Neri wrote, "Ang masasabi ko lang talaga, ngayon ay mas naiintindihan ko na kung bakit lagi nilang sinasabi na super woman ang mga nanay. Hindi madali lahat pero kinakaya para sa mga anak," adding that she now appreciates her mom more. "Ibang klase pala talaga. Mukhang madali, parang madali, akala ng lahat ay madali. Hindi pala talaga. Malayoooo sa inaakala ng marami. Pero napakasarap naman talaga ng feeling. Ibang klase. Heaven," she added.

    Baby Miggy is only two weeks old, but Neri says he is the size of a one-month-old baby. The new mom also posted their very first family photo taken in the hospital -- yes, they stayed in the hospital for almost two weeks because Baby Miggy got sick and had to be under medication. The new parents don't have a yaya and Neri shared a photo of her hands-on husband giving their son a bath. Awww.


    2. CBCP, private schools oppose DOH plan to distribute condoms to students
    President of the Federation of Associations of Private Schools and Administrators (FAPSA) Eleazardo Kasilag is alarmed over the Department of Health's (DOH) plan to start distributing condoms to students as part of the government’s efforts to curtail teen pregnancy and stop the spread of HIV/AIDS among the youth. Kasilag told The Philippine Star that it might just "make schoolchildren curious about sex." The Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) likewise echoed his fear. "Distributing condoms will only condone sexual activity among students," reads the press statement of Fr. Jerome Secillano, executive secretary of the CBCP's public affairs committee. DOH secretary Paulyn Jean Ubial emphasized that this is not to encourage the youth to use condoms, but will only be distributing it for their protection. She also stressed that the students would also be given counseling and also called upon parents to teach safe sex at home.


    3. Watch: Georgina Wilson shares her baby's ultrasound video

    "Little chubby boy coming soon," the soon-to-be mom wrote as caption of her Instagram video. Georgina Wilson has managed to stay sexy and gorgeous even if it looks like she's due to pop anytime soon. How soon? Her due date remains a secret, but if we were to count back to when she announced her pregnancy in August, when she said she was already four months on the family way, she should be welcoming her and husband Arthur Burnand's first child around late December or January next year. Exciting!

    In this new trailer, Lemony Snicket (Patrick Warburton) warns viewers, "If you are interested in stories with happy endings, that story is streaming elsewhere." Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events perfectly captures the dark humor of the original books. Every trailer it releases only makes waiting for the premiere harder. In this new one, we get to see more of Count Olaf, brilliantly played by Neil Patrick Harris, and the orphaned Baudelaire children's genius solutions and unwavering persistence to survive and give their greedy uncle a one-up every time he tries to suppress their spirit and steal their money. A Series of Unfortunate Events premieres on Netflix on January 13, 2017. (slashfilm.com)
