Assunta cites "calling" as reason why she doesn't have kids yet
She's probably tired of being asked the same question now, but actress Assunta de Rossi doesn't seem to mind. She has been married to former Rep Jules Ledesma since March 2004 but has yet to conceive a child of their own (Ledesma has two children from his late wife). "Kung dalawa lang kami ok lang, but we have to think of hundreds and hundreds of workers" who work on their "28-million square-meter" sugar plantation in San Carlos, Negros Occidental. "We have a calling, magiging steward kami nong dalawang estate sa Negros." In 2013, Assunta and Jules announced that they will be giving 60% of their wealth to their workers.

Toni on postpartum depression: "Dadaan ka sa self-pity."
First-time mom Toni Gonzaga spoke in detail about her own experience with postpartum depression at a recent press conference for ABS-CBN's The Voice Teens, which she will host.
“Halimbawa, tapos na akong mag-breastfeed, siyempre, ang sakit na ng chest ko, ang sakit na ng lahat. Pupunta ako sa CR, magbibihis ako 'tapos iiyak siya [Baby Seve] at maririnig ko. Kapag umiiyak siya, sabi ko, 'Umiiyak na naman siya. Ano na naman ang kailangan niya?' [So] Naiiyak din ako, magdadrama rin ako."ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
She stresses that postpartum depression is real, and should not be taken lightly. “Totoo ang postpartum [depression] ha, hindi siya biro. May ganun pala talaga, dadaan ka sa self-pity," she confirms, which is why she advices new moms to have a more open communication with family and friends.
“Pagkatapos ninyong manganak, huwag kayong mapag-isa. Laging kausapin niyo ang mga kasama niyo sa bahay niyo.” (pep.ph)
