Top of the Morning: Look! Drew Arellano With Iya Villania's Baby Bump!Plus, New Kardashian baby is on the way, new "Sesame Street" YouTube channel, and more!
1. Look! Iya Villania’s Baby Bump!
Dad-to-be Drew Arellano shared on his Instagram account his wife’s growing baby bump. This is the first ever look at host Iya Villania’s second-trimester baby belly. The mom-to-be, on the other hand, continues to tease about their child’s gender. She posted a photo of two onesies: a blue one that says “Jun Jun”, and another that says “Ping Ping” in pink. Iya has said before that she’s doesn’t have a preferred gender, but is excited to know if she’s having a boy or a girl. “I’m looking forward to it all, I’m looking forward to breastfeeding... The attachment, yeah. I’m looking forward to the baby having to depend on me,” she said in an interview. (pep.ph)
2. New baby Kardashian on the way
Not from any of the girls, though. Their brother Rob Kardashian and his fiancée Blac Chyna are expecting a baby together. The two took to Instagram to share the pregnant emoji of the soon-to-be mom. This is the first child for Rob and the second for Blac, who shares a three-year-old son King Cairo with her ex Tyga, who is now Rob’s sister’s Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend. All is good, though, as Tyga had already sent his congratulations. The expecting parents haven’t set a date yet, but have been engaged only after 10 weeks of being together. Congratulations!

3. Introducing Sesame Studios!ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
It’s like Sesame Street, but online. Banking on the success of the educational show’s YouTube channel, the company has introduced Sesame Studios. No, it doesn’t have Elmo and the Muppets, but it offers the same kind of educational content the long-running educational show has always had; it is, after all, from the makers of Sesame Street. In place of the familiar faces on Sesame Street, Sesame Studio has its own host: Marvie, a computer-generated gumdrop-shaped, fuschia-haired, digital puppet who loves to dance in his bedroom that could rival a discotheque.

4. Wisconsin City is having parents pay up for their bully child's behavior
In the city of Shawano, in Wisconsin, U.S., council just passed an ordinance to help curb bullying and harassment. With the new ordinance, parents will first be notified of their child’s bullying behavior and will be given 90 days to address it. If their child bullies another kid again, they will be made to pay a fine of USD$366, or almost Php17,000. Another offense would result to a nearly USD$700-fine, nearly, Php33,000. Authorities said that the ordinance will be focusing on more serious offenses, as opposed to just “playground-type kid talk”, that happens outside school grounds, as each school has its own set of policies to address bullying. Shawano is the first city in the U.S. to fine parents of accused bullies, and feedback has been positive. What do you think? (huffingtonpost.com)
