It's only the first week of 2021, but there have been so many *revelations* already! This includes news about local celebrities, specifically their new relationships and adorable new family members. Here's a rundown of the biggest celebrity relationship reveals since January 1:

Although the couple made their relationship Insta-official in September 2020, they only revealed that they have a son named Jude Trevor Paterson on January 5, 2021! Jude was born on October 20, 2020, and his parents made the sweetest video for him by releasing it through a YouTube vlog. Markus also talked about meeting Jude for the first time, saying: "Ang hirap i-explain pero the moment na I saw him, parang a whole wave just kind of took over my body, na lahat ng priorities ko noong time na 'yon nawala. It went out the window, like everything is now for him. Everything forever will always be for this little man that I'm holding in my arms."
2. Barbie Imperial and Diego Loyzaga
Diego posted a New Year's photo with Barbie, writing in the caption: "Happy new year to us. Thanks for making the end of my 2020 memorable." Barbie also shared a snap of them the following day on Insta, saying: "Totally unexpected to fall for someone I thought I’d be just friends with forever but I’m really happy to have found both love & friendship with this one. Thank you for making me happy and feel loved. Thank you for everything that you do to make me feel the love I deserve. So thankful for you, thank God for you. #angcheezynibarbie pagbigyan ngayon lang ulit naging ganito."
