    The two, who co-parent daughter Ellie Eigenmann, threw a gymnastics-themed party and were both game to wear matching jackets with the words, "Team Ellie" printed at the back. The birthday girl wore a glittered gymnast's attire under a jacket that read, "Ellie 7," like a sports jersey.

    Zia Dantes gets her first haircut!

    Following their much-awaited gender reveal, Team Dantes has posted another video on their Youtube channel, this time featuring daughter Zia Dantes's first haircut. Can you believe that she just had her first-ever haircut, at age 3?

    In the video, the mom and daughter duo are shown being playful in the car as they make their way to Symmetria Salon. Its owner Celeste Tuviera has been Marian Rivera's hair stylist for years, so she's the natural choice to cut Zia's hair. The little girl wants bangs, like her Mom's. 

    During Marian and Zia's play in the car, the soon-to-be ate suddenly stopped to hug her mom. "I don't want you to get hurt," the little girl said. "You don't want me to get hurt? Why?" Marian replied. "Because I love you," Zia said. "Aww. I love you more," the preggo momma replied. "I know," Zia replied. 

    Dad Dingdong Dantes was also present for her daughter's milestone. If it were up to him, he would rather that Zia wore her hair long, but acknowledged that the little girl is an ate now and is starting to make decisions for herself. Following Pinoy beliefs that the child will inherit the intelligence of whoever cuts his/her hair first, dad Dingdong did the ceremonial "first cut" of Zia's hair, as shown in the video. 

    Zia was so excited to have her first haircut (maybe only second to her excitement over being an ate), and she loves her new bangs!

    It's not her first pregnancy or childbirth, but LJ Reyes is feeling nervous about labor and delivery the second time around. It has been eight years since she gave birth to her son, Aki

    "Sabi nga nila five years... kunwari five years ang agwat parang first pregnancy daw uli yun sa katawan ng babae," the actress told Pep.ph. LJ said she wasn't afraid when she was about to give birth to Aki. But now, however, she feels a bit afraid "kasi aware ka na sa pain, aware ka sa possible na mga puwedeng  mangyari sa 'yo medically, ganyan," the preggo mom explained. 

    The excitement in meeting her daughter Summer Ayanna, however, is greater than her fear. "We are very excited, kahit si Aki, very excited," LJ stressed. "Kahit na merong konting fear lang na parang sana… may mga wishes ka na like kunwari, sana normal pa rin, ganyan. Sana walang maging problema, pero mas excited kami kesa dun sa mga fear," she added. 

    LJ admits she's not fully prepared yet to go through childbirth again in January 2019. She and partner Paolo Contis have been busy, but the mama-to-be has been practicing her breathing to prepare for labor and childbirth.
