Top of the Morning: Andi Manzano's Daughter Olivia Celebrates First Birthday!Plus, Regine Velasquez on having another child, text mix-up ends in heartwarming surprise, and more!
1. Andi Manzano's daughter Olivia turns 1!
The adorable daughter of radio DJ and host Andi Manzano and businessman GP Reyes celebrated her first birthday last March 20 at The Palace Pool Club in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. The party had a party animal-themed party, and the setup was filled with greens, flower crowns, cotton candy, cakes, and animals--some were even real! Andi's birthday message to her little angel was, "Every time I look at her, I can't believe how God has been so good to me. She's made me a much better person, a better wife, a better friend, a better mom. She really is the greatest blessing and the gift. I love you from the bottom of my heart (happy one year of breastfeeding to me, too)." Happy birthday, Olivia! (pep.ph)
2. Regine Velazquez on having another baby
"Masyado na yata akong matanda para magkaroon pa ng isang baby. Forty-five years old na ako, e. Para kasing ang laki na ng gap," she said in a press conference for her new teleserye Poor Seniorita. "But if God gives us another child, I will be the happiest. Pero right now, parang ayoko na," Regine admitted. The Asia's Songbird also didn't want to elaborate on her miscarriage before getting married to singer songwriter Ogie Alcasid. She said it was a very personal thing that happened, and she didn't even want to announce it. "“It’s just that si Arnold [Clavio] asked the right question that’s why it came out," Regine explained.

More than a month after the former "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate and non-showbiz boyfriend Norman Crisologo welcomed their daughter Olivia, the new mom has been posting photos of her on her Instagram. Beauty Gonzalez is busy being a mom and she seems to be head over heels in love with her newborn. On some of Olivia's photos that she posted, she wrote lyrics of Martine McBride's "In My Daughter's Eyes, and Simply Red's "For Your Babies" as captions. In one photo, she wrote, "You know I'd do most anything you want/ Hey I, I try to give you everything you need/ I can see that it gets to you/ I don't believe in many things/ But in you I do."

5. Texting mix-up about newborn ends with a heartwarming gestureADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Dennis Williams of Tallahassee, Florida, received a group text last March 19 that a couple was having a baby...except he didn't know the couple. "Congrats lol but I think someone got the wrong number," Dennis wrote back after he and his brother Deorick Williams read the messages. The message updates kept on coming, and the new parents only realized their mistake after the delivery. The new parents apologized, but instead of the usual "no problem" response, they got a visit from the William brothers instead. They even brought gifts for the new baby boy, too! Awww.
