  • LOOK: Baby Seve's star-studded first birthday party!

    Toni Gonzaga and Paul Soriano's cutie little boy just turned 1, and the first-time parents marked the occasion by throwing a grand golf-themed birthday bash held last Saturday at Maybank Performing Arts Theater in Bonifacio Global City. 

    Baby Seve's guest list included Scarlet Snow Belo Kho, Antonio Primo Arellano, Maria Isabella Padilla, and Natalie Martine Valenciano, daughter of Paolo Valenciano and Samantha Godinez-Valenciano. 

    "Happy first birthday Seve! You are the best part of me," mom Toni wrote on Instagram. Dad Paul also greeted his son a happy birthday on Instagram. "You’re only ONE, but you’ve been giving us overflowing joy every day. We love you and thank you for coming into our family. I couldn’t be any prouder and happier that I’m your only Tinang," Toni's sister Alex wrote in her birthday message. (

    In photos: A baby shower for Pauleen And Vic Sotto


    A baby shower was held last Saturday, September 30, in honor of the mom-to-be and her soon-to-arrive daughter. Based on the all-pink decor, it also looks like Pauleen and husband Vic had already chosen a name, and it starts with the letter T. "My baby girl is so loved!" wrote Pauleen as caption for the photo of the many gifts the guests brought for her daughter. Apart from the party suppliers, she also thanked her family. "The biggest thank you goes to my Luna family for making it to our shower yesterday! Your presence is the best gift that you could give us. Thank you!" Pauleen wrote. (

    Cute! Scarlet Snow's antics before the Star Magic Ball

    Remember Scarlet Snow and dad Hayden's funny argument on Instagram about her new last name -- Kho? Well, they've got pillowcases made in honor of that viral video. The photo shows Hayden and wife Vicki with Scarlet Snow and their respective pillowcases: "Daddy Kho," "Mommy Kho," and "Scarlet Snow Belo Only." "Thank You so much, Papa Jesus, for giving me such a Godly and goofy family," read the caption on the little girl's Instagram.


    Just before her parents and sister Cristalle Belo-Pitt went to the ball on September 30, Scarlet was goofing around with the "Belo Babies" Star Magic talents, who were trying to get Scarlet to do the Shark song dance. Good thing they were successful on the second try. She may not have attended the ball, but she sure was still part of it!

    LOOK: Baby shower #2 for Michelle Madrigal

    "Thank y'all for coming to celebrate the arrival of our baby girl," the sexy preggo wrote on Instagram. Michelle added a special thank you shout-out to her future mother-in-law and her girlfriends who organized the event. It also appears that she and fiance Troy Woolfolk had already chosen a name for their daughter: Anika. Back in May, Michelle had an early baby shower coinciding with her sister Ehra Madrigal's despedida, who was then set to return to the U.S. after her March wedding in Boracay.  


    Aljur Abrenica waiting for Robin Padilla to see his grandson

    In an exclusive interview with, the new dad admitted that he and Kylie's father Robin Padilla hadn't talked yet, nor has the new granddad seen his apo. Aljur revealed that he had been trying to speak to Robin since he had gotten back with his daughter, way before Kylie's pregnancy was announced. "Hindi ko alam sa kanya kung anong right time sa kanya, e. Siya na ang bahala dun. Desisyon na niya yun," he said, and added that he respects that. He stressed that Robin is welcome to visit their home to see his grandson Alas Joaquin anytime. They would also gladly visit Robin at his home if he'd invite them as a family. Aljur and Kylie, who announced their engagement in January, are currently planning their baby boy's baptism, so wedding plans would have to wait a while longer. (
