Xu Bin and Mrs. Xu Bin-to-be take a wefie

With just two weeks to go before their wedding, Xu Bin and his fiancée Wang Yifei are looking as in love and sweet together as can be (although this was clearly a sponsored post for that handsome watch on his wrist, hashtag and all).

…and Kris Wu hangs out with Pharrell in the studio

Could there be new music from the former EXO member and renowned producer in the pipeline? On Thursday (Oct 19), Kris posted a photo with Pharrell – whom he dubbed “someone who deserves respect” – in the studio, but did not elaborate on the nature of their meeting. Pharrell, on the other hand, had uploaded a picture of him three days earlier in a studio (possibly the same one) with the caption “Handlin’ in Mandarin”, which could be a hint to their collaboration.

Janet Hsieh documents the birth of her son

It’s been almost two weeks since Janet and her husband George Young became parents, and she revealed more information about their baby boy and her labour experience on Wednesday (Oct 18).

According to her lengthy post, their son was born on October 11 at 2:37am (after 38 long hours of labour) and weighed 3,650g. She then shared – in great detail – about all the things that happened before the delivery, the thoughts and concerns that went through her mind, as well as her advice and words of encouragement for other mums-to-be.

Also, aren’t these photos of George being a supportive and attentive partner just the sweetest? That’s real #couplegoals right there.

But that's not all. A few days after these were shared, we finally got our first look at their son and learned of his name. Check out the next slide!

Hello, baby Egan!

We're not 100 percent sure if little Egan is crying or laughing in this shot, but wow, isn't he precious? Although we wonder what he will think of his parents both captioning the photo "My name is Egan. I just farted" when he's old enough to understand that.

#Couplegoals, anyone?

Myolie Wu’s husband posts a loving tribute to her (and mothers everywhere)

“Trust me guys, us men are weak compared to the strength of a mother giving birth!” Philip Lee is so in awe of what his wife went through to bring their son into the world that he wrote a lengthy tribute to her, detailing all the pain and suffering she endured (and is still enduring as a breastfeeding mother). “It was very difficult to stand by feeling helpless and just watch. I will never forget her fortitude.”

He added that he felt the urge to give his own mum a big hug to thank her for going through the same thing for him, and ended off his post with, “A sincere salute to all mothers from the heart. They say a mothers love is like nothing else in the world....I think it is true.”

To all you mums out there, you rock!

Gary Chaw urges men to take care of their women

Is it just us, or did famous husbands seem to be extra sweet this week (not that we’re complaining of course)? After attending a Pink Ribbon breast cancer prevention event with his wife Wu Sou Ling, Gary paid tribute to all women and how amazing they are. “When you really care about someone, their happiness becomes more important than yours. Take care of our women fellas.” You heard ‘em, fellas!

Super Junior gears up for their comeback

Mark your calendars for November 6 because the K-pop kings are making a big return on what also happens to be their 12th anniversary [insert party popper emoji here]! The first group teaser images were released on Tuesday (Oct 17), followed by individual shots of the members over the next three days, getting fans increasingly excited for the comeback. Aren't the boys looking good?

Eleanor Lee teases her debut single

Quan Yi Fong’s daughter isn’t just enjoying a blossoming acting career – she is also set to step foot into the music industry with the release of her debut single ‘That Girl’ on October 24 (these screenshots are from the music video teaser she posted). Eleanor’s star is certainly shining brighter and brighter.

Edison Chen shares first family-of-three photo

It looks like Edison is no longer bothering to be low-key about his family life. Months after the birth of his daughter Alaia, the (former?) bad boy finally shared the first picture of him, his model girlfriend Qin Shupei and their adorable baby girl all together. They certainly look like one happy - and good-looking - family.

Zed Lee shows off his drumming skills

It looks like we have a future rock star in the making. Fann Wong posted a video of her “self taught drummer” son unleashing some beats to wish everyone a Happy Deepavali (although, what he was playing sounded more suited for Chinese New Year instead). We’re certainly looking forward to see more from this budding musician.

Jay Chou trolls his Instagram followers

"[Her] photo is ready, are you ready [to see it]?" wrote the Mandopop star next to a snapshot of his daughter Hathaway, her face concealed as usual. Fans immediately responded that they were indeed prepared to get their first glimpse at the little girl's face, but lo and behold, cheeky Jay ended up sharing a picture of an entirely different person wearing the same cap as Hathaway.

Did you feel as disappointed - and utterly cheated - as we were?

Don’t mess with Avery Chen!

Andie Chen posted an open plea to mixed martial artist Angela Lee: “can you train my Daughter? Pretty pleaseeee... (sic)” If he gets his wish, we’ll be seeing Avery kick butt in the ring in about 15 years’ time.

We get a closer look at baby Neia

Okay, we have to admit that we’re absolutely envious of a three-month old girl: not only does she have a head of thick, lush hair, but the naturally deep creases on her eyelids would give any plastic surgery-enhanced K-pop star a run for their money (although the lines don’t seem as obvious in the pic with her papa). Shaun Chen and his wife Celine Chin made a beautiful baby, indeed.

The Song triplets turn into hamsters

Thank goodness for Song Il Kook’s Instagram, or else we don’t know what would fill the triplets-shaped hole in our hearts since their departure from The Return of Superman almost two years ago (gosh, time flies).

In this adorable post, we see Daehan, Minguk and Manse having fun with a filter app that transforms them into furry hamsters (we thought they were rabbits at first but the ears are too short) munching on a nut. Judging from their expressions and their laughter, they were having a whale of a time.

A first look at TRAX’s Jay in ‘Missing’

It appears that Korean rock band member Jay has a role in upcoming Channel 5 drama Missing! Earlier this week, he shared a photo of himself sharing a scene with lead actor Pierre Png, along with the cheeky caption, “Kiss scene....?” We doubt that’s going to happen, but we’re looking forward to seeing the both of them together on screen next year.

It certainly wasn’t all work and no play for Pierre Png while shooting Missing in Bangkok. He also found time to grab a drink with Steven Lim, whom most folks would remember as David from classic local drama Growing Up. “The food was great but your company my friend made it [‘100’ emoji]”, wrote Pierre. Wonder what they talked about!

BTS’s Jin’s sugar glider steals hearts (again)

Fans got their first look at Jin’s new furry companions Odeng and Eomuk (both words mean “fishcake” in Korean) during the BTS Comeback Show, and earlier this week, he shared more photos of Odeng in a fur-lined pink pouch, which we presume is how Jin carries them around when they’re not in their cages in his room.

If this adorableness inspires you to get sugar gliders of your own, you’re out of luck: having the cute creatures as pets is illegal in Singapore, and it is also said that they might not survive our hot and humid weather and they’re more accustomed to cooler climates. Guess we’ll have to settle with admiring Odeng and Eomuk through our screens. Post more pics, Jin!

Elvin Ng adopts a dog

Look who’s now a new papa to a fur-kid! It’s especially touching to learn that Elvin chose to adopt an older canine companion – the beagle’s name is Bagel and she’s about 8 years old, according to his caption – who used to be a breeder dog living in poor conditions (sniffle). He then vowed that he’d try to gain her trust and make her a happy dog who knows she’s safe and loved. Awww…

But before bringing her home, Elvin made sure to bring her for her mandatory medical check-up to ensure that she’s in good general health. We know Bagel will be very well taken care of and adored in her new home (even when she’s given “a bad scolding for poo poo-ing on the carpet").

On a more heart-breaking note, Wednesday (Oct 18) marked the third death anniversary of Chris’s pet pooch. “I wonder if you've been a good boy with Jesus, happily running, barking, eating in heaven? I miss you my dear ‘little bear’”, he wrote.

Amber Liu joins the #MeToo movement

Ever since Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein’s sexual abuse allegations came to light, numerous women have been coming forward to detail their harrowing experiences with him. They were joined by many others who used the hashtag #MeToo to convey their own assault or harassment experiences, including K-pop star Amber Liu.

“It happens everywhere, even here. I want to add my voice as well. Not only from what I have experienced but also from what I have seen my friends and loved ones have to go through”, she wrote. “And because it’s so common, I hate to say it... the feelings became so numb and we all felt that we just had to ‘deal with it’.”

Her tweet and Instagram posts were immediately bombarded with comments and messages of support, gratitude and encouragement from her followers, some of whom also admitted that they had gone through the same thing.

Fresh off her Sing! China stint, Joanna returned to our sunny shores and immediately got busy with a flurry of media interviews, including one with Dennis Chew at Love 972 FM and for Andie Chen’s online podcast. Of course, they couldn’t resist taking photos with her.
