Baby Antonio is due in 10 weeks, and he’s already getting busy inside her mother’s womb with major kicks. “Hindi na lang pa-cute na sipa-sipa,” Iya shared. The two are planning to attend birthing classes and are already packing for D-Day. (gmanetwork.com)
2. Saab Magalona defends herself from basher who called her baog
The daughter of Pia and the late Francis Magalona recently addressed a netizen’s comment that implied she was barren as the reason why she’s not yet pregnant. On her blog post entitled “Not Everybody Gets Married To Have Children,” she said they are not trying to conceive yet. “It’s a choice we both made, and I respect other couples for choosing to have kids right after marriage, too,” she wrote. “I just need people to stop being so jaded thinking it’s the only reason people get married—so they can have children. Some people still get married plainly because they’re in love.” Saab and Jim have been married for just over a year now; they tied the knot in January 2015. (pep.ph)

Proud mom Camille posted a behind-the-scene photo on Instagram and captioned it, “First day of work+play.” John also marked his nephew’s milestone. “Sobrang proud ako sa 'yo my #Nathan.
