  • In photos: Camille Prats's Princess-themed baby shower

    In a few weeks’ time, the Munting Prinsesa of Philippine showbiz will pass on the title to her first baby daughter. Camille's maternity shoot had a royal theme, "Promoted to Queen," and recently she had a baby shower held at Marco Polo Hotel in Ortigas. "A Princess is coming! Thank you to everyone who came and celebrated with us!" she wrote on Instagram. 

    Everything was pink-perfect, even the cake, which had white and gold accents. Of course, Camille and husband VJ Yambao's friends and family were present. We particularly love the beautiful #OOTD of her niece, Lilly Feather Prats (daughter of John Prats and Isabel Oli). (

    LOOK: Erika Padilla's aeronautical-themed shower for Baby Jet

    "These party details got us on cloud nine! Thanks for making us feel so high!" wrote the sportscaster and actress regarding her baby shower. The event for the 28-week preggo Erika Padilla was held at Ayala Park Terraces with stroller brand Aprica PH. Their family and friends, including actress Bea Alonzo, were there to celebrate the upcoming arrival of their baby boy. 


    The party's aeronautical theme had to do with the name Erika and husband Jeffrey Cariaso have chosen for their first baby. #BabyJet was derived from his dad's moniker, "The Jet," when he was still playing professional basketball in the PBA prior to becoming Alaska's assistant coach today. Baby Jet will be the couple's first child together.  

    Bangs Garcia proud of preggy "body transformation"

    The former FHM cover model bared on Instagram how her bikini-ready figure has transformed during her pregnancy. Valerie "Bangs" Garcia posted a photo collage of herself in a bikini, documenting the time before she got pregnant, her baby bump at six weeks, seven weeks, 14 weeks, and now at 20 weeks pregnant. "Can't wait to see my belly grow some more!" Bangs wrote in the caption. She also used the hashtags #PregnantandProud, #ProudtobePregnant, and #ExcitedtobeAMommy. Bangs clearly couldn't contain her excitement to meet her and husband Lloyd Birchmore's first child. (

    LOOK: Michelle Madrigal flaunts growing baby bump


    We love that our preggo mommas are not shying away from posting photos of themselves in two-piece swimsuits, as in the case of actress Michelle Madrigal, who's pregnant with her first baby. The mom-to-be shared on Instagram new baby bump photos from her partner Troy's birthday vacation in Punta Cana in Barcelo Bavaro Beach, Dominican Republic. "Happiest birthday to my best friend and life partner Troy. I appreciate everything you do for me and our baby. Thank you for being the man that you are and making me believe in love again. Cheers to love, loyalty, and long- lasting relationship," Michelle wrote as a caption in one of the photos. 

    LOOK: Pauleen Luna shares baby's first ultrasound photo

    Now halfway through her pregnancy, the mom-to-be shared a photo of her unborn baby daughter. "Hi, my little girl," Pauleen wrote as caption. She used the hashtag #lookup, referring to a popular pose for a beauty shot. The 20-week pregnant host-actress is already starting to nest as she awaits the arrival of her and husband Vic Sotto's first baby. The couple recently went on a quick babymoon in Baguio and went home to find boxes of online baby goodies. "Cannot wait to set it all up!" Pauleen said.
