1. Will Toni Gonzaga take a break from showbiz for her pregnancy?
"I think she will work until she gives birth, gano'n si Toni, e," Paul says, and he has nothing but support for her Toni. "For as long as the doctor allows her. We have monthly check-ups. Sometimes twice a month we have check-ups. The doctor says she’s completely healthy. She can work as long as she gets her proper rest and the working conditions are safe," he says. The soon-to-be parents are very excited to welcome their little boy and start a new chapter of their lives. "It’s exciting just like how I make films, it’s unpredictable," he says. It's too early to say who would be the godparents of their "mini-Paul", but it's safe to say Toni's sister Alex and his brother will be two of them. (pep.ph)

Ryan Agoncillo and Judy Ann Santos' youngest possesses an infectious smile based on photos of her on social media, so many are wondering when she'll have her own TV commercials. Their older children have already appeared in ad commercials, but Judy Ann Santos says baby Luna's turn will come soon enough. "Hindi ko pa siya kayang i-expose sa lights nang ganung kabata," she says. Lucho got his first endorsement when he was five to six months old. "Para sa amin kasi, iyon yung safest. At least kumpleto na ng bakuna, medyo strong na yung immune system niya," Judy Ann explains. She stresses that she will give more importance to her baby's health than having her endorse a product.

The procedure will be done in the United States and would take three months. "Sa in vitro kasi, kailangan pare-pareho ng laki. Kailangan lahat pantay-pantay ang laki, kailangan lahat fertile," Liza says about Aiza's egg cells. She also adds that they know the risks involved but are hoping that the procedure will be successful. The two will be choosing from a detailed background profile an anonymous sperm cell donor for their baby, then Liza will be the one to carry it to term.
