2. Why did Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho decide to have a baby?
“When we decided to stay together for life, we decided to have this baby,” Dra. Vicki Belo told Inquirer.net. She says it has always been her worry that they couldn't be a family even if partner Hayden Kho doesn't mind not having a child. However, when they both found a way to be a family via surrogacy, Vicki said having Scarlet has even strengthened their bond. “For me, this is a wonderful time to have a child. I have the time and money. And Hayden has been the best dad ever. We talk about life now more and more, and we’re on the same page because of Scarlet," she added. Hayden also shared with the news website that their daughter's name came from the Bible verse: Isaiah 118 that says, "Though your sins be red as scarlet, I shall make them white as snow."

3. Heart Evangelista wants a baby boy, already has a name!
After getting a well-deserved vacation in the paradise island of Balesin where Heart Evangelista and husband Senator Chiz Escudero tied the knot, the actress / artist is already busy with her big project this year -- that is, having a baby. In an interview aired on "Chika Minute" in GMA7's 24 Oras, Heart revealed that she's already preparing her body for her pregnancy, continuing to exercise: swimming, biking, and running. She also revealed that she wants a baby boy since she comes from an (almost) all-girl family. If they would be blessed with a baby boy, Heart says she's set on naming him Francis Jr., after her husband. (pep.ph)
4. Woman gives birth live on FacebookADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Fakamalo Kihe Eiki, from Carmichael, California, broadcasted his partner's birthing video live on the popular social media site. Don't worry -- it's not graphic, but it's not glamorous, either. Eiki, in an interview with CBS Local a day after the live birth, said her partner only knows that they shared "something to be happy about". He did it because he had noticed that his Facebook feed is full of negative posts, so he decided it would be cool to post something different. On his Facebook account, he also said he decided to live-stream the birth to share the magical moment with his family around the globe. He also replied to positive comments, thanking the people for "enjoying the gift of life with me." The 45-minute video has already racked up 103,000 views so far. (huffingtonpost.com)
