Actress Marian Rivera and husband actor/producer Dingdong Dantes celebrated their birthdays at Amanpulo beach with their bun in the oven. Marian took to Instagram to share a photo of her and Dingdong at the beach, showing off her baby bump in a hot pink two-piece swimwear. She captioned it, “Enjoying beach life with mi Amor…” The couple had their first beach date in Amanpulo six year ago, and it’s only fitting that they revisit the island paradise for a babymoon.

2. Ovarian cancer is less deadly that previously thought Good news: A new study published in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology found that one in three women with ovarian cancer will live for ten years or more, and states that it’s not true that all women who are diagnosed with the disease will die from it. Researchers tracked survival information of more than 11,000 women diagnosed with the most common form of ovarian cancer, and majority of them lived to be more than 50 years old. It’s not surprising that survival favored women who were diagnosed early and had less aggressive tumors. (huffingtonpost.com)

5. Pre-teen girl as a superhero? Marvel says yes! Comic book giant Marvel has a new superhero, and her name is Lunella Lafayette. She is a brainy pre-teen girl with “unpredictable alien DNA” and, together with Devil Dinosaur, is a superhero in “Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur.” The new comic book is a re-imagining of a short-lived 1978 comic centered on a T-rex and his caveman-like friend Moon Boy. “Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur” is a move to reach younger audiences, as Marvel realized it lacked characters that kids could relate to. It also aims to create comic book that both adults and kids would love. (mashable.com)
