1. Toni Gonzaga shows off baby bump in a two-piece lingerie
The mom-to-be shared a rare photo of her baby bump while wearing a two-piece lingerie -- a silhouette of it, that is. Toni, who is due to give birth anytime now to her first child with husband Paul Soriano, posted the black-and-white image on her Instagram account last night. Her sister, actress Alex Gonzaga, gave a hint that we may not have to wait very long for the baby boy to arrive when she captioned a photo of her and Toni taken during the premiere of her movie My Rebound Girl one day ago with "Thank you for coming and staying for the whole movie kahit nagco-contract ka na...". Have a safe delivery, Toni! (pep.ph)
