Kylie Padilla and Aljur Albrenica are engaged!
A day after news broke that Kylie was three months pregnant, the Encantadia star's talent management, Vidanes Celebrity Marketing, posted an official statement via Instagram, announcing that she and Aljur are now engaged. The official statement, however, did not address the pregnancy news. At around the same time, Kylie, who turns 24 today, January 25, also posted on her Instagram a photo (see below) of what looked like the moment Aljur popped the question. "I know these past days have been rough, but I can't wait for the day people get to know you like I know you. Can't wait to share how it happened I'm just happy I am sharing it with you," she wrote. Kylie and Aljur first became a couple in 2011, but had a two-year break following infidelity rumors. They rekindled their relationship in September last year. Congratulations!

"May this day be the beginning of a wonderful time in your life. Thanks for bringing so many reasons to laugh and smile into our lives, with your jokes, prank and nonstop questions.

Love you, son," he wrote as a caption on an Instagram photo that showed him and Nathan hugging.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
During their wedding held earlier this month, Camille thanked VJ for the love he has given to Nathan and said he was "truly an answered prayer," not only for Camille, but also for her son. Camille had her own sweet message for Nathan. "You make me proud in everything that you do, the little boy that you are and the man you are about to become," Camille wrote on Instagram. "Time flies so fast! I'm getting all emo by how much you've grown. You will always have mommy's heart. Always." (pep.ph)ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Chynna Ortaleza on embracing after-baby body
The new mom, who welcomed her first child, daughter Stellar, in April 2016, got real about her post-baby body. Chynna shared on Instagram that she has accepted that she'll never get back to her overly payat pre-baby body -- and she's okay with it. "My current postpartum body can be beautiful & stronger with determination & discipline," she wrote in the caption. Chynna admitted that slimming down has not been easy for her. She said she was not the athletic type and was never a fan of exercise. She also asked other moms who have just given birth to embrace their new post-baby curves. "All I can say is, Woman you are beautiful no matter what! You are a Mother! That is something to be very proud of," Chynna wrote. "Ayoko ng balik alindog program! Siguro mas maganda ang harapin at mahalin ang panibago mong alindog." Well said, Chynna. (pep.ph)ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

Remember Amanda Page? She's a mom now and this is her son!
Former sexy actress Amanda Page, along with her husband, psychiatrist Dr. Lee Mendiola, and their son, Mason, charmed the hosts and audience of the ABS-CBN's morning talk show Magandang Buhay. The handsome 3-year-old looked so comfortable in front of the camera as he introduced himself and sang a nursery rhyme. When asked to choose if he wanted to stay in the Philippines or in the U.S., he gave an honest answer, choosing the latter. Amanda and her family were in the country for a quick visit. She surprised TV viewers last January 15 when she performed a sexy dance number with Maja Salvador on noontime show, ASAP. (abs-cbn.com)ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
