OMG, Kim Tae Hee and Rain Are Going to be Parents!
Can you imagine Rain being a dad and Kim Tae Hee a mom? You better because they're going to be in a few months! "Kim Tae Hee is currently 15 weeks pregnant, so she has to be careful for the time being. However, rather than having the news be released as medical treatment, she believes that it is her duty to be the one to share the news to everyone who has cheered her on," shared Ruach Entertainment, Kim Tae Hee's agency. "She will be focusing on prenatal education and plans to work hard as a wife and a mom," they added. From their wedding to this announcement, you've gotta love this couple for letting their fans hear the news straight from them! Congrats, you two! (via soompi.com)
Contrary to earlier reports that Liza Soberano is set to play Darna, her manager Ogie Diaz clarified that there's no official confirmation yet. "Hindi kasi kami ang dapat nag-a-announce niyan," he said. "If ever Liza will be chosen, yayakapin namin siya ng buong-buo but nag-aabang lang din kami," he added and advised to just wait for Star Cinema's final decision. We're claiming it, so congratulations in advance, Liza! (via inquirer.net)
Aside from playing the role of Filipino superhero Darna, Liza Soberano will also portray modern day hero, Pia Wurtzbach! "She's taping for MMK as the young Pia Wurtzbach. Bumangka sila sa story talaga noong wala pa siya sa pageant-pageant, so story ng family," says Liza's manager Ogie Diaz. Zsa Zsa Padilla who'll play the role of Liza's mom in the show had nothing but kind words for the actress saying, "It was hard focusing on my lines while looking at her beautiful face. Who knew such beauty could be distracting? But she's such an amazing actor and pretty soon, I felt like I was talking to my very own daughter." How's that for a confidently beautiful face and heart?

Shortly after, Liam posted a tweet apologizing for what he said, blaming it on geography not being his strongest subject. LOL! You're forgiven, Liam! (via refinery29.com)
