Camille Prats talks about second pregnancy
It may not be her first pregnancy, but the Kapuso actress feels like she’s pregnant for the first time. In an interview with Pep.ph, the soon-to-be mom of two admitted her first trimester was difficult, but she feels better now that she’s well into the second trimester.
"I'm on my fifth month, and I feel so much better, parang I'm back to my original self," she shared. "Kasi during the first trimester, talagang nahirapan ako mag-lihi. Talagang vomiting 'tapos sobrang hilo. Ngayon, I'm feeling so much better." It’s been 10 years since Camille gave birth to her son, Nathan (with late husband Anthony Linsangan). She is expecting a baby girl this time around.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

She also shares that their boys (VJ has a son from his previous relationship) are excited to meet their baby sister come late September or early October. (pep.ph)

Scarlet Snow was the perfect accomplice to surprise her dad on his birthday. “Mommy asked him what he wanted for his birthday, and he said he only wanted quality time with us and a song from me, so I sang one of his favorite songs,” read the caption for an Instagram video. Scarlet sang "Somewhere Out There,” which she has been practicing for a while now (and she is using her favorite microphone). She also sang the birthday song, but she decided she wanted to dance midway into the song.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

Recently, Erika, a certified yoga instructor, posted on Instagram a photo of her stretching and she even did a handstand in a separate Instagram video post. In the comments, she said she's been doing yoga for 10 years. “But for my pregnancy, I didn’t do that much during the first trimester. I’m back to doing SOME stretches now in my second,” Erika wrote, adding that expecting moms should consult with their doctors before doing any strenuous exercise. And if they do get a go signal, they should seek assistance from a yoga teacher.
Passports valid for 10 years may be twice as costly
Passports that will be valid for 10 years will cost double, about P1,900 to P2,000, according to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA). “The materials will change. The materials are, of course, a bit more expensive because we want the booklet to be durable enough to last ten years," said Ricarte Abejuela, director of DFA's Office of Consular Affairs Passport. He added the number of pages in a passport would increase, which could add to the cost. The bicameral committee has already approved a bill that proposes to extend passport validity to 10 years and has been submitted for President Rodrigo Duterte to sign. According to the bill, passports of children aged 3 and below will only be valid for three years while passports of children aged 4 to 18 will be valid for five years since kids faces will change as they grow.
