  • Why Ian Veneracion's wife is confident he doesn't have a mistress

     

    His wife of 20 years, Pam Gallardo, is not the nosy type. She doesn't ask the 42-year-old actor his whereabouts, what time he's coming home, or what the money on top of his daily allowance is for. "Wala akong budget ng kabit," Ian stresses, adding that all his earnings go straight to his wife. "Saka sa akin, gusto ko she manages my finances. Kasi kung hindi ko iyan paiikutin, wala, parang baldeng butas yun," the heartthrob actor admitted. Ian only asks Pam if he can afford, say, a new motor bike, and she tells him if he can buy it now or wait a few months. "I’m happy. She’s really good at it," Ian said proudly. 

    He adds that their financial setup and not getting into each other's lakad has worked so far. "Ako yung kinakabahan pag tahimik lang. Mas nakakatakot yung ganun na hindi magtatanong," Ian admits. "Hindi sya selosa ever since. And kung magselos man, hindi nya ipapakita sa akin. She's too proud para ipakita sa akin, and I love her for that," Ian said. (pep.ph)

    Kylie Padilla recounts "too much" pain during four-day labor 
    After her road manager Ghee Castro posted a tribute to her strength during the four-day-long labor leading to the birth of her son Alas Joaquin, Kylie recently gave her own account of her birthing story. "By the fourth day, I was exhausted and feeling a little let down by my body. Contractions were unbearable... The pain became too much, especially with no rest, no sleep. I have never felt so out of control of my body," the 26-year-old new mom wrote on Instagram. Kylie then decided to give up her plans for a water birth and agreed to a medicated vaginal birth.

    "After everything I'm still happy with my birthing story. My baby is healthy. Although it was a medicated birth, I'm thankful I still experienced all the natural hormones I did through those four transformative days. I learned more about myself and still got to enjoy a few moments in the tub with my partner. I want to thank everybody who was there for me through those 4 days. It wouldn't have been bearable without you," Kylie added. 

    Kylie and fiance actor Aljur Abrenica brought Baby Alas to his first well-baby checkup on Saturday, August 12. This morning, the family of three went out to catch the early morning sunshine

    Despite the ongoing custody case between her mom Andi Eigenmann and dad Jake Ejercito, it looks like Ellie still gets to enjoy the company of both parents separately.

Most recently, Ellie walked down the aisle as a flower girl at her paternal aunt Jerika's wedding to Spanish husband Miquel Aguilar Garcia. The two got engaged in April this year. 

    Ellie was with dad Jake and the rest of her Ejercito family, plus Jerika's son and Ellie's constant playdate, Isaiah, in celebrating the union. "No bad days," Jake wrote as caption for one of their photos before the big event. (pep.ph)
