Over the weekend, Nadine Samonte and husband Richard Chua shared on social media photos from their daughter Heather Sloane's newborn photography session, along with their first official family photos.

3. Scarlet Snow's first encounter with pets
Everyone seemed scared and was careful around the baby snake, but not Scarlet. "Can you please please help me convince daddy to let me bring this pet home? I already have a name for him: Noodles," was the caption to this Instagram post. In another Instagram video posted on the toddler's account, it looked like she was conversing with a pet dog. The caption read: "Maybe this one I can bring home. Daddy did not allow me to bring home Needle." So what do you think Scarlet Snow's first pet will be? Not the snake, we think.
5. Divine Lee is engaged!
The TV host and model said yes to Chinese businessman Blake Go when the latter popped the question over a romantic candlelit dinner at the Ayana Resort and Spa in Bali, Indonesia over the weekend. Divine was surprised, she said in a phone interview with Pep.ph. Divine and Blake have known each other since their college days but only got together last year. When asked if marriage after only a year of being in a relationship was too fast, she said, "Bakit pa namin patatagalin, di ba? Tsaka hindi naman na ako 16. Thirty-four na kami pareho. Mag-classmate kami at magka-edad." Divine said that although she wants an intimate beach wedding in Cebu, she's also considering the fact that Blake has a big family. Congratulations! (pep.ph)
