    Actress and movie producer Harlene Bautista and Federico Moreno, son of the late host and starmaker, German Moreno, recently marked the first month of their anniversary.

    While we know Harlene is separated from her husband, actor Romnick Sarmenta, we had not heard about the estrangement of Federico and Shiela Magdayao, who is a younger sister of Vina Morales.

    Before Federico, Harlene was linked to businessman Neil Eugenio.
    Meanwhile, Romnick is now in a relationship with model-actress Barbara Ruaro.
    Romnick and Harlene have five children, all grown up.

    Carlo Aquino, 35, welcomed his first child, Enola Mithi, with girlfriend, Trina Candaza.

    The actor is super excited to be a dad. He wants to give her the best, he said, that is why he wants to work harder. That is why the non-renewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise affected him.

    “Kaya pray hard, I do,” he said. “Inaasahan ko – namin ni Trina – na may isa o dalawa pang susunod kay Enola. Mahirap ang maging nag-i-isang anak.”

    Carlo is in the action series, “A Soldier’s Heart,” with Gerald Anderson, Elmo Magalona, Nash Aguas and Sid Lucero, among others.

    Janella Salvador

    Carlo Aquino is now a dad, Lara Quigaman is giving birth soon, and Janella Salvador is rumored to be pregnant

    Will Janella Salvador’s camp confirm or deny the rumor that she is pregnant?

    There are talks she flew to United Kingdom with her mom, her brother, and her boyfriend, Markus Paterson, because she is set to give birth there.

    Recently, the two went public with their relationship, with Janella posting on her social media account a photo of them kissing.

    In the recent past, Janella and Markus, both 22, refused to confirm their relationship, despite sightings of them enjoying their time together.

    Markus is an actor who played football professionally in UK, where he was born. He also sings, which is something he has in common with Janella, whose parents are both performers. Janella’s dad, Juan Miguel Salvador, is the Rage Band frontman. Her mom, Jenine Desiderio, played Kim in “Miss Saigon,” a production of Cameron Mackintosh.

    Scheduled to give birth soon is actress and former Miss International Precious Lara Quigaman.

    It’s going to be another boy for actress and former Miss International Precious Lara Quigaman and her husband, actor Marco Alcaraz.

    They have two boys already.

    “Baka September 17 ako manganak,” Lara, in an interview, said. “At dahil sa hospital ako manganganak, kinakailangan sundin ko ang protocol to have a swab test.”
    She is set to give birth via caesarian section.

    “Ang napansin ko lang ngayon, medyo irritable ako,” Lara reportedly admitted. “Siguro may kinalaman itong pandemic o posibleng ninerbiyos lang ako. Kaya request ko sa mga kaibigan at kakilala ko to pray for me to have a safe delivery.”

    Alden Richards and Jasmine Curtis Smith are currently in Tagaytay for the taping of their new series, “I Can See You: Love on the Balcony.”

    They are in lock-in for the taping, together with their co-stars, production staff and director, LA Madridejos.

    During the taping, Jasmine and Alden will have to do their own make up and prepare their costumes.

    “Bilang lang kasi ang puwedeng nasa set during the taping,” explained Jasmine.
    Before “I Can See You,” Jasmine finished all her scenes in her other series, “Descendants of the Sun,” with Dingdong Dantes, Rocco Nacino, and Jennylyn Mercado.

    Alden, on the other hand, shot a commercial before the lock in taping and also finished shooting the documentary, “Lockdown: Food Diaries,” under GMA Public Affairs.

    Alden, a most in-demand actor, a successful entrepreneur, and an over-all good guy, is very much single. He has not been rumored to be courting anyone – whether from show business or not.

    He was linked to Maine Mendoza five years ago.

    Maine is currently in a relationship with actor Arjo Atayde.

    We cannot help but wonder what qualities Alden is looking for in a girlfriend.
