    The 65th OFW Gawad Parangal gave recognition to Marian Rivera, Dingdong Dantes, and Baby Zia as the "Most Popular Family in the Showbiz Industry," a first for the actors and their year-old daughter. In October, Baby Zia received the PUSH Awesome Celebrity baby award as the most popular celebrity baby of 2016. "Walang hanggang pasasalamat sa umaapaw na pagmamahal inyo sa aking pamilya," Marian captioned the photo of the trophies they received. Her talk show Yan Ang Morning! was also awarded the Best Talk Show by the same award-giving body. Dingdong, on the other hand, was recognized as ones of the Makabata Stars ng Anak TV Foundation, while it's Marian's fourth year to be included in the same category award. "Ang maging isang magandang ehemplo sa mga kabataan ay isang karangalan, lalo na ngayong may anak na ako. Nais ko pang pagbutihin ang maging isang huwaran sa pamamagitan ng aking trabaho, at talaga namang nakakagana ang biyayang ito," she wrote. (gmanetwork.com)

    In one of the boudoir couple maternity photos she shared on Instagram, the new wife and soon-to-be mom shared a description of her daughter. "Masaya ako kasi nakita ko na sa 4D ang picture and video ni @alexandriamagallanes! Napakaganda nya. Matangos ilong and deep set na almond eyes, full lips, complete sya and perfectly daw. Haha. 3 lbs 5 oz, 142 heart beat niya. Makulit siya parang ako! Sabi nya todo na to! Go go go!" Rufa Mae wrote in the caption. She also revealed that it took her time to decide to get pregnant because she feared having stretch marks (she has none!). "Pero dahil sa pagmamahal, sa tulong ng dasal at sa asawa ko @trevvvsilog, naging malakas ang loob ko na harapin at embrace ang lahat ng pag babago sa sarili ko at sa katawan ko," Rufa Mae continued. She truly is at the happiest time of her life. (gmanetwork.com)


    3. Donita Rose reveals reason why she and husband split
    Donita guested on friend Mo Twister's podcast "Good Times With Mo" last week and gave advice to a male caller who was having difficulty moving on after a split caused by the other person's cheating. She said that sometimes it starts with forgiving oneself, as it happens that he may have shortcomings as well. During the show, Donita also revealed why her marriage failed. "The picture that I paint in my mind of what’s supposed to be perfect and a great relationship would never happen because of the character flaws and character issues," she said. "I’m not saying he was completely at fault. I’m just saying that we paint this dream picture in our mind of what a relationship is supposed to be like and sometimes we immortalize the person and we can’t seem to let go," she said. Back in July, Donita confirmed that she and husband Eric Villarama, after having an on-and-off relationship, have ended their 12-year marriage. (pep.ph)

    "The snuggle is real," she wrote in the caption. The photo Pink posted shows her topless, with her hands on her breasts and her daughter Willow's hands on her baby bump. Her fans were clearly in love with the sweet photo, leaving comments like "gorgeous picture," "stunning," and "love is so beautiful." The overall feel of the photo exudes the same bohemian vibe of her pregnancy announcement photo which the "Just Like Fire" singer shared last month, which shows her daughter sneaking a peek from her mom's baby bump.

    5. Zika virus can keep growing in infant's brain even after birth
    According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), research shows evidence that the Zika virus is capable of replicating itself in an infant's brain for up to seven months after the mother became infected. The new study's findings help explain the devastating birth defects and pregnancy losses suffered by infected mothers even if they only exhibited minor symptoms, and even if they were apparently healthy during birth. "Our findings show that Zika virus can continue to replicate in infants' brains even after birth, and that the virus can persist in placentas for months -- much longer than we expected," Julu Bhatnagar, head of the molecular pathology team at CDC's Infectious Diseases Pathology Branch and the study's lead author, said in a statement. He added that the length of time that the virus will persist is still unclear; however, in one of the cases in their study, the Zika virus continued to grow in an infant with microcephaly (a neurological birth defect associated with Zika), who died two months after birth.
