Scarlet Snow Belo's parents are getting married!
According to Thelma Sison San Juan of the Philippines Daily Inquirer, she received a text message inviting select individuals to the wedding of Drs. Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho in September in Paris. The message is composed to read like it was from Scarlet Snow herself, and it reads: "This is Scarlet Snow Belo and I would like to invite you to be present when my parents, Daddy Hayden and Mommy Vicki, get married in our favorite city, Paris."ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Vicki and Hayden have been together since 2005, but their relationship has not been without challenges, like Hayden's scandal in 2009 and a very public breakup in 2012. However, since getting back together in 2014 and welcoming their daughter Scarlet Snow in 2015, they've been going strong and steady. Hayden said they're getting married "to do right in the eyes of God" and that it's what's best for their daughter. Congratulations! (pep.ph)

"Ang bilis ng panahon," Parokya ni Edgar frontman Chito Miranda wrote as caption for son Miggy's recent milestone photo. It's been only five months since his wife Neri Naig gave birth to their first bundle of joy, but look how big he is now! "Napagkamalang six months na si Miguel ko, haha! 27 inches kase ang haba niya at 7.4 kilos na siya. Napakalaking bulas," Neri wrote on a separate Instagram post when Baby Miggy was just four months old. In fact, he already wears pants made for six-month-old babies. He's so big that Neri says carrying and playing with him serves as her exercise. "Binata na talaga eh. Umaakyat na nga daw ng puno ng niyog mag-isa eh... tapos ginagawa niyang ice buko yung mga nakukuha nyang bunga tapos binibenta niya sa palengke tuwing umaga para daw pan-tuition nya sa college. Napakabait na bata," Chito joked.

Not only did the actress and single mom have fun with boyfriend Dennis Trillo and son Alex Jazz while vacationing in South Korea, she also met with her biological dad Noli Pineda. She said in an interview that they already had an agreement as early as January this year that the retired musician, 62, will be coming home with her. "Masaya kasi sinundo ko yung father ko. Ngayon, dito na siya. Ano yun, e, January. Sabi ko, 'Samahan niyo ako, kasi wala na akong kasama rito sa Philippines, mag-isa na lang ako. Tapos sabi niya, 'Di bale, uuwi na lang ako.' Sabi ko, 'Hindi, susunduin kita para sigurado," Jennylyn shared. The father-and-daughter duo is currently adjusting to the new home setup since Jen has never actually lived with him since birth. "Pero kilala ko naman kasi siya. Even [if] hindi naman kami nagkikita, uuwi naman yun yearly. Tapos, nagkakasama rin kami," she said. (pep.ph)
