From the ED­I­TOR

YES! (Philippines) - - From The Editor -

Fam­ily is ap­par­ently where we’re at this Novem­ber. We have Carmina

Vil­lar­roel talk­ing about how she played the three roles of mother/wife/ac­tress all at the same time, par­tic­u­larly at the time her twins were grow­ing up. (Spoiler alert: she did not sleep.) We also have Karla Estrada speak­ing con­fi­dently of her fa­mous son Daniel’s take-charge spirit. (Mark her words: he will take care of his three sib­lings.) Then we have celeb kids all turn­ing a great one XX year old! Diana Zu­biri’s daugh­ter, James

Yap’s son, Chito Mi­randa’s boy. Even more ex­cit­ing, there also seems to be a baby boom hap­pen­ing in show­biz right now—just take a look at Camille Prats and Maricar de Mesa, and part­ners Maya and Ge­off Ei­gen­mann, beam­ing be­side their bun­dles of joy. (Never has a cliché been so nice to use.) And on our very cover, we have Aljur

Abrenica, Kylie Padilla, and their new­born Alas. Lis­ten to their story, and if this isn’t a cou­ple in love, with the man work­ing with­out whim­per or fa­tigue in or­der to care for his part­ner and his child, with the woman stop­ping the world as she knew it in or­der to care for the two boys in her life, even as she deals with the in­tran­si­gent rules of her fa­mous fa­ther... if this isn’t fam­ily, that tiny group­ing of peo­ple bound by love and will, then what is? •
