  • Scarlet Snow Belo is one brave girl 

    Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho and their daughter went on a cruise recently, and we were on the edge of our seats when we saw an Instagram video of Scarlet Snow's water slide adventure with her dad. "Ok this will SURELY freak mommy out," the caption for the video read, adding, "Daddy's idea not mine!" in parenthesis. It showed Hayden carrying Scarlet Snow taking a massive water slide aboard the cruise ship. The 2-year-old did not look like she was afraid to take the plunge. After all, Scarlet has taken swimming lessons with her dad since she was a baby. Still, there was a moment when we anxiously waited for them to emerge at the bottom, thankfully unscathed and filled with just pure adrenaline rush. 

    Based on the photos posted on Scarlet Snow's Instagram, as well as dad Hayden and mom Vicki's posts, it looks like the family had a blast! 


    Rufa Mae Quinto shares a new mom's ups and downs

    Ever been in a situation where you can't move because you're afraid to wake the baby? Well, the actress and new mom is experiencing it first hand now with 2-month-old daughter Alexandria. "Tulog na anak ko. Enjoy ko naman ang mga chance na ito," Rufa Mae wrote in the caption for a photo of her daughter snuggled with her in bed. "Parati siya nakayakap sa akin, pinadede ko sya, 'di ako makatayo kasi magigising kahit gusto ko na mag-CR, paano ba 'to? Nagugutom ako pero antok din ako?" she quipped. She then added her signature line for motivation: "Kahit magkalasug-lasug na sa kaka-breastmilk, go go go pa din!"

    Aside from making sure her baby sleeps soundly, Rufa Mae showed Baby Alexandria having her tummy time with her mom and burping like a boss. "'Excuse me po!' sabi niya! Ganyan ang anak ko comedienne din like me," Rufa Mae wrote as a caption for the video. "Nakakatuwa, tawa lang ako ng tawa parati. Gusto ko sabihin, 'Anak, konting poise naman! Princess ka, tandaan mo, ok?'" Rufa Mae shared.

    Sarah Lahbati dedicates new book to persevering moms

    In an interview with Boy Abunda on Abunda Tonight, the mom of Zion The Young Lion shared her inspiration for her new book True Beauty: How to Glam Your Life Inside and Out. She said she has never appreciated her mom, Esther, more than the time she was away from partner, Richard Guttierez. Her mother stood by her side during those trying times when she was pregnant and lonely. "My mom did everything to give me a comfortable and good life in Switzerland...I was really having a hard time being away from Chard, being pregnant, [and] taking care of a growing baby inside of me -- there were so many emotions going on inside and it was really hard and lonely for me," she said. Sarah is dedicating her book to mothers "who never give up." (abs-cbn.com)

    Men more involved in parenting than ever before, says global survey

    Nearly 70 percent say men have "greater responsibility for the home and childcare" than they had ever had. This was according to an online global survey that had more than 18,000 respondents from across 22 countries, including India, United States, Indonesia, Russia, South Africa, Turkey, Mexico and Britain. 

    On the role of women, the world remains divided, says Claire Emes, senior director of Ipsos MORI, in a statement. But, "the majority do not think women should stay at home and have children." The main hurdle for women is balancing work and family life, an area where sharing equal parenting duties with men could help tremendously. However, efforts to close gender gaps in the workforce and pay had slowed so dramatically in the past year that men and women may not reach economic equality in another 170 years, a 2016 World Economic Forum study found.
