    Jennica and Alwyn Uytingco mark 9th year together!

    Celebrity couple Jennica Garcia and Alwyn Uytingco marked nine years of togetherness yesterday, February 13, by going on a low-key "date" in Divisoria!

    "An anniversary spent anywhere is fine with me as long as I spend it with you," Jennica wrote on Instagram, adding they went to Divisoria to buy supplies for their plant shop. While it wasn't the most romantic anniversary date nor the most comfortable trip, at least they were together and got home in time to give their daughters a bath and tuck them into bed.

    For his part, Alwyn marked their ninth year of togetherness, five of them as husband and wife, by posting photos from when he and Jennica began their relationship until now that they already have Mori and Alessi. 

    The mom of two revealed that 2018 was the hardest on their marriage so far but they surpassed the hardships, tears and the wounds it brought. "Come 2019, we loved each other more than we ever did," Jennica shared. "My heart's desire is for you to know and feel that you are valued and loved in our home. Mahal kita Alwyn. Mas mahal pa kita ngayon kaysa noon," she wrote.

    Alwyn thanked Jennica for making everything they are now possible. He credited his wife for always reminding him that love is not just a feeling, but a gift you give to your special person every day, not just on occasions. 

    "Sa mga bagay na tinuro mo sakin at patuloy mong paggabay sakin at sa pamilya natin, totoong ilaw ka ng tahanan natin," Alwyn continued. "Hindi na mahalaga kung lumubog man tayo sa lupa o umangat sa kalangitan, basta alam ko na hindi mo ako bibitawan. Mahal na mahal kita at hindi ka nila kayang tumbasan," he added. 

    Your first look at Frozen 2 is here! 

    It's the first time the kids (and the kids at heart) will see Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Sven and Olaf since the 20-minute short that played as a pre-roll to the movie Coco in 2017. The official teaser trailer doesn't even reveal a lot in terms of plot (or dialogue, really), since scenes from the most-awaited sequel only play out with familiar background music.

    The trailer opens with Elsa walking on water (yes, you read that right!) trying to get to the other side. Why she was willing to risk her life, we don't know yet, but there's a fair chance it's because someone she loves is on the other side and needs her help. We see Anna in her own journey in a cave, and Kristoff riding Sven with his herd, probably off to a battle. 

    There's a new character shown in the trailer, and the rumor mill pegs her as Elsa's significant other. Mark your calendars, parents. Frozen 2 opens in theaters on November 22!

    Scarlet Snow is ready to be a big sister!

    "I think I might be ready to be an ate. After all, I'm already doing well as a tita!" read the caption for a video posted on Scarlet Snow's Instagram. In the video, the three-year-old is reading to her nephew, Hunter James Pitt, and she almost sounded like a grownup when she said "No" to Hunter when he tried to grab the book from her. 

    Mom Vicki Belo shared the same video and lauded her daughter for being a good tita. "She reads to #hunterjamespitt, teaches, and plays with him," the doctor shared on Instagram. Even Scarlet Snow's big sister and Hunter's mom Cristalle, who's currently on vacation in Japan with husband Justin Pitt, thinks so. "I think this little tita is doing such a great job looking after #HunterJamesPitt while @justinpitt77 and I are away," she wrote as a caption for the video which she reposted on her Instagram.

    Scarlet Snow's caption on her Instagram also read, "What do you say, Daddy?" Could it be that she's asking for a sibling and is trying to convince her dad to agree? 

    Chesca Garcia Kramer wants to have another baby!

    Almost six years after giving birth to her third child, Chesca wants to reopen the baby factory — literally. Her husband Doug Kramer shared that they have taken steps to reverse the tubal ligation procedure which she had done after Gavin was born, so that they can add to their brood. 

    Doug and Chesca are already parents to Kendra, 9, Scarlett, 7, and Gavin, 6. "Getting pregnant almost two straight years with Scarlett and Gavin took a toll with Chesca's body, so we decided to have her ligated," the dad of three explained. "But it's been six years, and we did the necessary steps to check if her body is ready and healthy now. And so far, so good," he added. 

    "There are other ways to restart the baby factory! I'm kinikilig to the bones!" Doug shared. "It's gonna be a long and complicated process so please keep us in your prayers."

    LOOK: Preggo Rona Tai celebrate her curves with a maternity shoot!

    The road to Baby Tai is getting more and more exciting as mom-to-be Rona reached her eighth month of pregnancy. She and her husband, events host Eric "Eruption" Tai, marked this last stretch with a maternity shoot and a baby shower. They also announced that they have chosen the name "Legend" for their first baby!

    Rona had always been a body positivity advocate. "Never be ashamed of a body that can do something so amazing," Rona wrote as a caption to one of her maternity photos. She captioned another, "My body is the site of a miracle now.. errr shall I say site of a Legend?!" referring to her son's name, which was revealed in a baby shower the preggo's friends organized for the couple.

    The two lovebirds have been open about going the in-vitro fertilization route in their journey to become parents, and this has inspired many couples who are still trying to conceive. "We are indeed very very blessed," Rona said. "These last couple [of] weeks have been a quite tough for the preggo one as the young stud has already commenced his eruption training in the womb-arena," she said of her son's baby kicks and somersaults inside her womb. "Can't wait to train together!" she added.
