1. John Prats and Isabel Oli are expecting their first child!

Thank you God for this wonderful blessing :)” Actress Isabel Oli also posted a quote on Instagram, “If I am thinking correctly, said Pooh, “a baby is probably, undoubtedly, the grandest gift that could ever be.” She captioned it, “Even though my birthday is still a month from now, God already gave me one of His best gifts.

2. New “Jungle Book” trailer is out!
The new trailer for Disney’s live-action version of “The Jungle Book” gives the audience a first look at the young boy Mowgli in the creepy jungle. It’s somewhat chilling and interesting at the same time to hear Scarlett Johansson’s voice as the sinister snake Kaa. But the trailer is not all thrills. It also showed a glimpse of the unmistakable scene where Mowgli sits atop a floating Baloo’s stomach and a whistle of the song “Bare Necessities.” The movie features the voices of renowned actors such as Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Lupita Nyong’o as Raksha, Bill Murray as Baloo, Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, and Christopher Walken as King Louie. The movie is set to premiere in theaters in April 2016. Watch the trailer here. (wired.com)ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
3. Beware of hand sanitizers
The number of cases of American kids younger than 12 ingesting hand sanitizers had increased. Since 2010, the number quadrupled—from 3,266 to 16,117 cases—across the U.S. in just a few years as hand sanitizers now come in fun flavors such as grape and strawberry. The amount of alcohol in hand sanitizers range from 45% to 95%, and accidentally ingesting even a small amount can cause alcohol poisoning in kids. "Kids are getting into these products more frequently, and unfortunately, there is a percentage of them going to the emergency room," said Dr. Gaylord Lopez, Georgia Poison Center’s director.

5. Breastfeeding moms stage a nurse-in at Oregon store
About 25 moms and sons dads showed up at a Cascade Station store in Portland, Oregon to breastfeed their children inside the store. This is response to a Facebook post by Karina Gomez, a mom who was forced to nurse her young daughter in a bathroom stall after a store employee told her she couldn’t breastfeed her baby in a dressing room. The silent protest even had the breastfeeding moms do a little shopping while breastfeeding. The Marshalls store commented to her post, apologizing for the incident and saying that they have a policy that allows customers to breastfeed as they choose within the stores. (people.com)
