A ravishing Denise Laurel stunned onlookers at the Cosmopolitan Philippines Magazine 15th anniversary party held at the NBC Tent in The Fort, Taguig last May 17.
Wearing a figure-hugging, one-shoulder black dress, the 24-year-old actress certainly did not look like someone who gave birth a year ago.
So how does this hot mom stay in top form?
Simply by being a hands-on mother to her son, whom she likes to call her “little warrior.”
“My son is so heavy now and I chase him around everywhere. I’m a very hands-on mom.”
The Dahil Sa Pag-ibig stars is obviously proud of her little guy and says, “He [knows how to] say ‘Mom,’ ‘Car,’ ‘Mamam,’ and instead of ninong he says ‘Niyong.’
“He’s so active and very intelligent, great motor skills.
“And he’s 97 percentile in growth and weight and speech!”
As a mom, there is no greater feeling for Denise to be blessed with a beautiful boy whom she still refuses to name.
"Like I always say, I am so thankful because everything is in God’s timing.
"It’s all of His blessings, it’s all about His plan for me and not my plan for myself.
"You know, I’m just riding His wave of awesomeness and whatever He has in store for me."
THE ANONYMOUS DAD. While Denise constantly posts status updates and photos of her son on her Twitter account, she still remains silent about the identity of her boy’s father.
“Oh, no. I don’t think I ever will [reveal his identity],” she said politely.
But it’s not as if she is trying to hide him for whatever purpose.
She explains, “He’s not an artista naman so…and his family is also very conservative so, you know, I’d rather not say.”
Because of her choice to keep the identity of her babydaddy under wraps, rumors began flying recently that they might have broken up.
Is ithere any truth to it?
“Well, people can say what they want. It’s my life naman, e.
“I know it sounds so snobbish but that’s the truth.”
But is she planning to marry her non-showbiz boyfriend?
“I’m in no rush. Oh, my gosh! Everybody keeps on asking me to get married.
“I don’t know. I don’t have anything [against] commitment but I think that, especially now that I do have a son, I have to be more careful about the things that I do in my life.”
Guess we won’t be seeing this hot momma walking down the aisle in a bridal dress anytime soon.
