Regine, Michelle, and kids reunite to mark Ogie's 50th birthday
There's no better way to celebrate one's big 5-0 than spending it with family, and Mr. Songwriter Ogie Alcasid did exactly that. Last August 27, on his 50th birthday, he and his entire family -- that means his wife Regine, their son Nate, his ex-wife Michelle Van Eimeren, and their two daughters Leila and Sarah -- went on vacation in Paris. The only one missing is Michelle's husband, Mark Morrow, whom Ogie gave a shout-out to in one of his Instagram posts. It's not the first time that this modern family had gotten together, proving that peace is possible even with exes and new loves.
"Happy birthday, Dad! We love you," Regine wrote as a caption of a photo of Ogie and Nate. His eldest daughter Leila also posted a birthday message: "Happy birthday daddoooo. Thanks for hanging out with me when I moved and had no friends," she wrote on Instagram. "And thanks for being my Valentine because I'm not allowed a real one," Leila quipped. "You always know how to be just the right kind of person when needed. I love you," she added. Happy birthday! (pep.ph)
LOOK: Scarlet Snow's gorgeous dress for the wedding reception
Five days before the much-awaited wedding of her parents Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho, Scarlet has left for Paris with her family. Prior to the big day, Vicki gave a peek of the little girl's dress by luxury brand Mischka Aoki, which Scarlet Snow will be wearing for the reception. We have yet to see the Michael Cinco flower girl dress the adorable tot will wear at the wedding ceremony.
Of course, it's not just Scarlet who will have numerous outfits. The bride is set to don four different dresses on her wedding day. We hope all four of them make it to Paris safely after their original flight got cancelled. Thankfully, they booked another one and Vicki jokingly reminded the new airline not to lose her wedding dress. (pep.ph)
WATCH: The Dantes family's European vacay
Kapuso Primetime King Dingdong Dantes recently shared a video of the European trip his family went to last summer. Dingdong shot and directed the video with a little help from his friends Mark Nicdao and Forevermine Wedding Films. The video included scenic shots of Greece, Italy, and Spain, and gave us a glimpse of the art and culture. It also captures romantic shots of Dingdong and wife Marian, and we particularly love scenes with Zia happily exploring her new environment and playing with her parents. Of course, the video wouldn't be complete without 360 shots of the family and one of their signature "pouting" poses. (gmanetwork.com)
Kris Lawrence and Katrina Halili have no bad blood
The 34-year-old R&B singer revealed to Pep.ph that he and his ex-girlfriend, actress Katrina Halili, had put the past behind them and have taken steps towards becoming better parents. "We're okay. We're not fighting. We don't have bad blood [with] each other," Kris said. "She lets me visit whenever I want to. So, I'm very happy that at least okay naman," he added. There was a time "not too long ago" when Katrina wouldn't let Kris see their four-year-old daughter Katie, whose birthday is coming up in September. He said Katrina will always have a "soft spot as the mother of Katie," and added that "in a perfect world, it would be nice to have that family whole again," but quips that Katrina is firm that it will never happen. Kris emphasized that what matters now is that their communication lines are open. (pep.ph)
Mark Zuckerberg is now a dad of two!
The social media mogul is a father anew, and he and wife Dr. Priscilla Chan announced the birth of their second child via Facebook (of course!). Mark posted it as a life event and accompanied it with a letter to his new daughter, named August. When his first daughter Max, now 20 months old, was born, Mark wrote her a letter too, about the world they want her to grow up in. This time, Mark's letter to August is about childhood. "The world can be a serious place. That's why it's important to make time to go outside and play," the new dad wrote. "Childhood is magical. You only get to be a child once, so don't spend it worrying too much about the future. You've got us for that, and we'll do everything we possibly can to make sure the world is a better place for you and all children in your generation," he added. Congratulations! (people.com)
