1. Chynna Ortaleza shares snippets of her new role as a mom
The Kapuso actress and new mom is sharing her thoughts about her new role—being mom—in snippets. On her Instagram, she posted a photo of her with a breastfeeding art as the background. She captioned it, “The Highest Form!” In another post, she shared a collage of sketches and parenting wisdom. “It’s important to separate who you are from who each of your children is. Children aren’t ours to possess or own in any way. When we know this in the depths of our soul, we tailor our raising of them to their needs, rather than molding them to fit our needs,” she writes, quoting Dr. Shefali Tsabary, author of The Conscious Parent. Chynna And Kean are yet to share a photo of their daughter Stellar.

Exactly 3 floors up in the same building where my children and I live.” She has yet to explain them fully; however, just today, she posted a photo of her and her kids with the caption, “At the end of the day I will always have you two, and it will all be worth it. Keep your heads up, Mama will protect you. Keep your heads up and have pride knowing you will always be loved.” Sunshine Dizon and her husband Timothy Tan have been married for six years, and have two young kids, a girl and a boy, ages 5 and 4.
