    "Eating solid food is very new to me, so pardon the facial expressions," says the caption of TV host and dad of two Drew Arellano for a series of snaps that show his second son Leon Arellano's first foray into eating solids. It's reminiscent of his Kuya Primo's early enthusiasm in eating solids. 

    Leon's first meal looks to be steamed pumpkin. It was offered to him as large chunks so he can use his hands to feed himself (it seems the family is using baby-led weaning). Congratulations, Leon, for another milestone reached!

    Chynna Ortaleza and Kean Cipriano share their views on married life 

    In Tonight with Arnold Clavio, the couple and parents to 3-year-old daughter Stellar shared their views on a few critical things about married life and parenthood. One that stood out mainly was whether to live with the in-laws or not. 

    "I love my mother-in-law," Chynna Ortaleza said, while Kean Cipriano admitted, "I'm blessed to have cool in-laws." However, both of them agree, and their parents, too, that it's best to live separately. "Syempre na nagta-try kayong i-figure-out yung sarili niyo at yung marriage ninyo tapos every day you have to deal with the opinions of your in-laws," Chynna explained.

    On finances, Chynna and Kean shared having a joint bank account and individual accounts seems to work for them. Both of them agree that social media account passwords should not be kept secrets. But knowing your spouse's password does not give the other the freedom to just snoop.
