Modern Parenting Launches 2nd Print Issue with a Star-Studded Cover

In a sophisticated affair held at Aruga by Rockwell, Modern Parenting unveiled its 2nd print issue featuring Z and Aivee Teo as well as the Aivee Leaguers.

We’ve seen the world slowly return to some semblance of normalcy in the last 12 months. This was especially evident in the number of celebrities and influencers who attended the launch of Modern Parenting’s second print issue last Thursday, December 15. The event took place at Aruga by Rockwell. Modern Parenting’s Editor-in-Chief, Marga Medrano-Tupaz, and the rest of the team unveiled a star-studded cover featuring Z and Aivee Teo, Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo, Cat Arambulo-Antonio, Rosanna Ocampo-Rodriguez, Anthony Semerad and Sam Pinto-Semerad, and Sarah Lahbati-Gutierrez.

Just like the maiden issue, which featured a list of 100 inspiring families navigating through the pandemic, this year’s print magazine showcases 100 influential moms and dads of 2022.

“I am so proud and grateful to have the special privilege of creating Modern Parenting’s second printed annual edition following last year’s maiden run. It was important to me and the team that we put together the right mix of stories. After all, we were not just looking to publish a magazine. We sought to create a keepsake,” wrote Marga Medrano-Tupaz in her editor’s note.

Aside from the 100 List, the special print issue includes remarkable parents and their stories—from Trendsetters, Modern Homemakers, and parents who advocate for Work-Life Balance.

Additionally, you’ll find Top Picks—a curated section of places and destinations for families. Plus, read through the highly-anticipated Parents’ Choice Awards. Here, brands and game-changers who support nursing moms as well as parents of infants and toddlers, are presented.
