One wouldn't suspect that FHM Philippines July cover girl Aubrey Miles is already a mother of two. Aubrey's third appearance in the number one men's magazine coincides with the annual 100 Sexiest Women in the World event which will happen on July 9 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
Aubrey gave birth to her second child courtesy of longtime boyfriend actor-model Troy Montero last October 3. Afterwards, she immediately buckled down to work and get back in shape after her pregnancy.
It was a combination of hitting the gym and watching her diet. "If I'm lazy going to the gym I play tennis, wall climb," she told PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal).
In her interview with FHM, Aubrey used the word "dedication" as the key word in maintaining a shapely body: "Even if you have the will to go to gym or diet but you don't have the dedication to maintain it, it won't happen."
But there's also another vital element cited by the comebacking sexy actress.
"Basta happy surroundings," she offered. "Happy ka sa sarili mo and then yong tulong din ng ibang tao na tinutulungan ka na mag-lose weight, pag na-depress ka tinutulungan ka. So, first talaga muna yong inside e, then second is surroundings, third 'yong physical na."
FHM editor-in-chief Allan Madrilejos is more than happy to see Aubrey back on the pages of the magazine.
"Aubrey is one of FHM's talagang glorious icons. I mean idolo talaga siya ng marami sa mga mambabasa ng FHM," Allan enthused.
"Ang ganda niya, e. Sobrang ganda. Gulat na gulat ako nung lumabas yong [layout]. Manghang-mangha ako na eight months ago kapapanganak lang niya tapos 'ayan. Siguro na-miss ko rin kasi last ni Aubrey was issue number 50. And it's a perfect occasion na ilabas siya ulit, na magbalik FHM cover.
Allan continued: "Can't get any bigger than this. 'Yong July kasi parang pasko 'yan e sa FHM nation, so, di ba, celebrate mo ang isang icon tapos i-celebrate mo 'yong one hundred na kababaihan na nag-top sa list natin this year. So 'yon, nagulat siya, hindi niya kasi alam kung anong month siya lalabas."
