  • In photos: Andi Manzano's daughter Olivia turns two!

    Nobody does parties like Olivia Reyes, the adorable daughter of Andi Manzano and businessman GP Reyes. Following an animal-themed party celebration but with a more funky vibe, her second birthday was held on March 19 at the Palace Pool Club in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. "Happy birthday my little princess @oliviamreyes!" Andi wrote on Instagram.

    Like her first birthday party, Olivia's second birthday bash was made perfect with decor of animals set against a bright, summer-y backdrop. Guests were welcome to bring their pets, and there were furry and fluffy animals around such as chicks, rabbits, and hamsters that guests can pet. It looks like the fresh-faced tot had lots of fun! Happy birthday, Olivia! (

    Beauty Gonzalez set to say "I do" this year


    The actress and hot momma said yes to art curator Norman Crisologo when he popped the question on March 1 while on vacation with friends in Sitio Remedios, Ilocos Norte. "Sa totoo lang, ang laki ng pasasalamat ko kay God kasi I found a guy that I want to be married to," Beauty said in an interview. She and Norman are already parents to one-year-old daughter Olivia Ines, and they're planning to wed this year with a simple and intimate ceremony. "Wala akong entourage, ako lang ang maglalakad," she disclosed, adding that they will not have wedding sponsors other than two witnesses present. "Ayaw ko na magarbo masyado. Magarbo na yung suot ko, so tama na iyon," said the soon-to-be bride who already bought a wedding dress abroad. Guests will also be kept to a minimum. "Ako kasi, I [will] only invite people sa wedding ko na alam ang storya namin. Maliit lang talaga siya na wedding and simple lang," Beauty said. She added that Norman is a very private person and she respects his family's privacy, too, so there will be no press present on their wedding day. (

    Breastfeeding essentials vending machine? Yes, please!

    It looks like a regular vending machine, except it contains lactation cookies, nursing pads, flanges, gels, and every nursing paraphernalia a breastfeeding mom needs. It's called a MilkPod and was spotted at the Children's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. "How neat! Move over Chips and M&M's. Hello Lactation Cookies and Nursing Bras...  Way to support the cause," the post by Breastfeeding Mama Talk reads on Facebook. According to Pod Vending's website, "MilkPod is designed to meet the needs of lactating mothers. Our retail kiosk provides convenient access to a full range of equipment needed for breastfeeding babies." With the help of careful selection by lactation specialists and pediatricians, it carries products that can help "increase milk supply, alleviate sore and engorged nipples, and provide immediate access to critical accessories such as flanges, nursing bras and pads." Here's to hoping it reaches our shores somehow. (
