  • 1. Ara Mina and Patrick Meneses remain friends for daughter Amanda


    Ara Mina and Patrick Meneses settled their difference for their daughter Amanda Gabrielle's first birthday on December 17. The birthday party was held at the Greenmeadows clubhouse in Quezon CIty, with over 300 guests in attendance. Earlier this year, it was reported that the new parents are having trouble in their relationship, and Ara said that they are good friends. "I don't know kung anong meron kami. Pero ano, okay kami," she said. Ara added, "Basta kay Amanda, ano, e, wala kaming alinlangan." Since Ara is breastfeeding, whenever Patrick would spend time with Amanda, Ara is also with them. However, Amanda tops of their list of priorities. (pep.ph
