Top of the Morning: Mariel Rodriguez Hospitalized, Assures Fans She and the Baby are OkayPlus, Nadine Samonte expecting baby girl, baby number 2 on the way for Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, and more!
1. Mariel Rodriguez assures fans her sudden hospital trip is no-biggie
"I rushed myself to the hospital thinking something was wrong because it was a feeling I have not felt before," Mariel wrote on her Facebook yesterday, referring to 'abdominal pains'. "Turns out, my baby is just really playful. It was the baby's movements I was feeling!" she explained. Mariel admits that she got a little paranoid because of other people's (unsolicited) advice, including that she should not travel (she and husband Robin Padilla just got back from a trip to the Netherlands). "Truth is, I won't do anything that would harm my baby and I'm not going to let comments affect me anymore. I am sensitive, hormonal and paranoid as it is. What I need from people... their prayers, not unsolicited advice," she added. Mariel was relieved to hear the baby's heartbeat, but was told to take it easy. She's taking a leave from the noontime show It's Showtime to "relax now and enjoy my pregnancy and pray for a healthy baby." (pep.ph)
