MANILA – Toni Gonzaga said she and her husband Paul Soriano still don’t have plans to have another baby almost three years since they welcomed their son Seve into their lives. Gonzaga told ABS-CBN News that she and Soriano prefer to just trust God’s timing. “Kasi with Seve, we really planned na two years after [wedding] kami mag-baby. Pero after eight months binigay na siya sa amin. So it was not part of the plan, nangyari agad. But so far wala pa naman plan [mag-baby ulit],” she said. For now, Gonzaga said she is focused on her son alone who is turning three soon. “'Yung first two years is like honeymoon stage for us, getting to know each other, the rhythm as mother and son. Now we are in the stage where we are teaching him a little bit about life, that life is not all about when you cry, you’ll get what you want,” she said.

MANILA — The climactic confrontation in “Four Sisters and a Wedding” has catapulted the family dramedy as a millennial classic of sorts, with memes and parodies regularly sprouting on social media over the years since its 2013 release. On Thursday, the trio of “momshies” of the daytime talk show “Magandang Buhay” gave their own take on the memorable scene, with Jolina Magdangal as Teddy (Toni Gonzaga), Melai Cantiveros as Bobbie (Bea Alonzo), and Karla Estrada as Grace (Coney Reyes). Watch more in iWant or TFC.tv While initially the three actresses appeared serious in their dramatic re-enactment, their comedic side eventually surfaced with Estrada’s “favorites” being lechon, not one of the siblings, and Cantiveros giving a twist to the English-speaking character of Bobbie. The parody was in line with the March 21 episode’s theme, about the dynamics of siblings, from rivalries to the role of older ones as surrogate … [Read more...] about ‘I’m sorry, Ma’: Jolina, Melai, Karla re-enact iconic ‘4 Sisters’ confrontation
MANILA — Toni Gonzaga, one of the most visible figures in local showbiz, has been open over the years about her conservative upbringing, traditional values, and being an "obedient" daughter to her parents. Those have translated to not having once spent a vacation with her now-husband, filmmaker Paul Soriano, throughout their eight-year relationship prior to their 2015 wedding. In candid terms, Gonzaga, in her recent viral vlog, wanted to experience what she referred to as an early "honeymoon," but her patience and believing in "God's perfect time" prevailed over that desire.

MANILA — Throughout their eight-year relationship prior to getting married, Toni Gonzaga and Paul Soriano never once were able to spend overnight together, as they obeyed, admittedly with difficulty, the rules of the actress’ parents. Gonzaga, 35, now has a 2-year-old son with Soriano, whom she married in June 2015. In her latest vlog, Gonzaga chronicled her recent family trip to Amanpulo — a surprise from her filmmaker-husband on her birthday.

When she was in her mid-20s, Gonzaga recalled asking for her parents’ approval to go on vacation with Soriano, but she was always met with disapproval.
