Denise Laurel was somewhat chary about being called a M.I.L.F.— short for "Moms I Like to F**k." But she says, if it's the way to call women like her, who feel very much empowered by motherhood, then so be it. "I don't know about the F part of the M.I.L.F., but in a way it really does… That's what I wanted naman talaga. I want all moms out there to feel beautiful and feel sexy, because having a child is bea


A confident Denise Laurel strutted the catwalk of British brand Lee Cooper’s fashion show on August 29, at the Marriot Hotel, Resorts World Manila.

Though the actress was one of the most lauded in the show, she admitted in an interview with PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) about her hesitation to go on stage.

“Kinakabahan ako, hindi naman ako model!

“‘Tsaka I’m half the size of everyone in there,” quipped the 24-year-old star.

“Pinanindigan ko na lang ang pagiging [model].

"Pero, I’m so comfortable in the clothes that it’s making me feel beautiful and sexy, so… Rampage!” she said with a smile.

 

HOT YOUNG MOM. In spite of seeing herself unworthy of the tag "sexy mom," Denise—very obviously—is one.

After giving birth in 2011, the actress has managed to regain her pre-pregnancy figure, as well as her position being Precious Hearts Romances Presents's favorite lead actress.

She stars in her fifth PHR series, Pintada, which is currently doing well in the ratings game.

Her role as a high school teacher who falls in love with one of her students certainly was a dead giveaway for male fans to brand her as a M.I.L.F.—short for "Moms I Like to F**k."

So how does Denise react to her new title? Is she even aware of the term M.I.L.F. and its connotation?

“Oh my gosh! Now I am familiar of that term,” she exclaimed, laughingly.

“I don’t know about the F part of the M.I.L.F., but in a way it really does… That’s what I wanted naman talaga.

“I want all moms out there to feel beautiful and feel sexy, because having a child is beautiful and it makes you beautiful.

“You fulfilled your purpose as a woman [by becoming a mother].

“And at the same time, you are given this gift of pure love that you can, you know, take with you wherever you go, and love back as much as you want.

“So, it’s really... Love makes you beautiful. Children make you beautiful. Being a mother makes you beautiful,” she explained.

“LITTLE WARRIOR.” Aside from maintaining her figure through a healthy diet and regular workout sessions, Denise says it is the “instant exercise” she gets when playing with her son that keeps her fit.

Now at one year and three months, her son, whom she fondly calls Little Warrior, is already very athletic.

“He loves athletic stuff, he loves running, he loves playing soccer, he knows how to dribble a ball kasi tinuruan ko siya.

“And he’s always with my two brothers and my dad, so talagang lalaking-lalaki. And very athletic, good motor skills,” Denise revealed.

However, as a mother, she couldn’t help but worry about her boy because according to her, “Namana ang rhinitis at asthma ko, so we’re treating it now.”

Good thing, though, Denise feels her son will be able to cope with his sickness because, “Siya iyong tipong kahit may sakit, [nagtatatakbo] pa rin!”

Denise also finds her son to be very smart and “bibo” even at a young age. She revealed that he can now clearly say certain words.

“He says mama, papa, nanny—my mom, my sister [who is] his ninang he calls ‘Nangnang.’ He says car, Mc Donalds, Jollibee, dog, cat…

“And he loves music, so he’s always dancing and singing.

“When I vocalize in the morning, ginagaya niya iyong tono ng kinakanta ko, so… He’s so smart!”

With these talents showing early, does she see her son entering showbiz in the future?

“We’ll see. There’s so much he can do, the future is so bright.”
