The Kapuso Prime Time Queen told the press at the launch of Mega Prime Quality’s Prime Mom Club on March 15, at Prime Hotel, Quezon City, "Before kasi, hindi ako masyadong OA sa pag-exercise. Nag-e-exercise ako, pero hindi ko kinakarir.

“But this time na may Zia na ako, sabi ko, ‘I want to be healthy.’

“Hindi dahil nagdyi-gym ako, gusto ko sumi-sexy—no, I want to be healthy for my Zia.

“So ngayon, active ako sa crossfit.

“Almost every day except Sunday kasi may Sunday Pinasaya.

“Napakaaga! Hindi ko kaya mag-4 a.m.

"So nagko-crossfit ako, saka tamang pagkain. Lahat puwede, pero huwag lang sobra.”

The actress said she wants to prepare herself when she and husband Dingdong Dantes have more kids.

She also wants to be stronger so she can accomplish many thing as a mom, a wife, and an actress.

She elaborated during her post-event interview with the press, “Ano kasi, kapag marami kang pangarap para sa pamilya mo, para sa anak mo, ginawa mo ikundisyon ang sarili mo. Iayon sa dapat.

“Ako kasi, parang, sinasabi ko gusto ko maging fit hindi dahil gusto ko maging sexy.

“Gusto ko maging healthy kasi marami akong pangarap maging anak.

“So, para magawa ko yung lahat, kailangan sa sarili ko muna alam kung fit ako at kung kakayanin ko talaga.”

With Zia turning three years old, Marian and Dingdong hope to have a second baby soon.

“Marami nga kaming goals sa buhay. Isa na masundan si Zia.

“Siyempre, kailangan naming ipagdasal. Hindi porke't gusto namin, e, ibibigay 'yan.

“So na kay Lord pa rin kung ibibigay sa amin at ipagkakaloob sa amin ng pangalawang anak.”

LOVE YOURSELF. As the club's founding member, Marian reminded moms that that loving themselves is the first step to becoming effective.

“Ang prime mom para sa akin, kailangan mo muna unahin ang sarili mo bago yung iba.

“Kasi paano mo maibibigay ang one-hundred percent kung sarili mo hindi mo minamahal ng one hundred percent?

“So para sa akin, I love myself.

“Gagawin ko healthy ang sarili ko, and then I’ll extend it to my family, especially to Zia.

“Kasi kapag nakita ng anak ko, ‘Wow, ang mama ko ganito. Ay, mama, I want to be like you.’

"Kasi alam niya, one hundred percent gagawin ko ang lahat para sa kanya kasi buo ako bilang isang ina.”
