1. First photo of Iya Villania and Drew Arellano's Baby A!
Weeks away from welcoming their first child, Iya Villania and Drew Arellano shared a sneak peek of their baby boy by posting a 4D ultrasound photo on both their Instagram accounts. "My chubby cheeked boy!" wrote the mom-to-be in her caption. Drew, on the other hand, took notice of his son's "pose" and wrote, "Primo face-palmin'." Iya is already in her third trimester and still continues her active lifestyle. While her baby bump doesn't look as huge, Iya is documenting how Baby A is getting bigger by using the hashtag #ItsGettingTightInThere. (pep.ph)
2. Scarlet Snow reviewing her phonics is so cute!
Vicki Belo and daughter Scarlet snow traveled out of the country recently to meet with dad Hayden Kho in Scotland. To surprise her dad whom she hasn't seen in a long while, the little lady got busy reviewing her phonics. "Daddy's going to check on my learning progress today so before I see him, mommy is helping me review my phonetics," the caption read. Since Scarlet Snow has a learning schedule every day, it's not surprising that she can already articulate more than a few letters in the alphabet. Good job, Scarlet!
3. Government hotlines going live in August
As part of the new administration's initiatives to be more responsive to public complaints, a 24-hour hotline to receive and log citizen complaints, and an emergency hotline will be launched next month. In an interview with Inquirer.net, Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said the hotline number to receive complaints is 8888, while the hotline number 911 will be for emergency assistance. They are currently setting up the 24-hour complaint office which will be manned by 10 operators who will redirect the complaints to the proper offices. The 911 number will replace the current emergency number 117, and will be beefed up and function similar to the 911 emergency response center in Davao City. (inquirer.net)

5. Prince George attends his first Air Show!
The almost-three-year-old royal joined his parents at the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF (Royal Air Force) Fairford in the U.K for the first time for his first royal engagement. He looked so cute in his navy shorts, white tee, and his noise-blocking ear protectors. Prince William clearly has taught his son a few things about helicopters and airplanes, as the young royal kept pointing to the "tail rotor". When the little prince looked apprehensive, Princess Kate was there to carry him to assure him everything's okay. Prince George also said thank you to the RAF cadets he met, who gave him a blue "savings pig". (people.com)ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
