Gelli de Belen, 45, has managed to maintain her figure even after giving birth to two boys.

Gelli de Belen has become an inspiration to women, especially moms.

One of the compliments she often receives is about her slim figure.

Now 45 years old, the actress has managed to stay in shape even after giving birth to her sons Joaquin and Julio.

Aside from this, the public has witnessed how she and Ariel raised their family.

What is their secret?

Gelli offered, "Siguro ano, sabi nga nila, happy wife, happy life, di ba? Masaya lang ako sa buhay. Grateful lang ako."

Is she just also lucky to have a slim figure? 

She countered, "Ay hindi. May effort yan, may effort yan. Siyempre, exercise, ingat nang konti sa pagkain. Pero more exercise para makakain. Kasi mahilig akong kumain."

Gelli also warned ladies who are in their 40s: "...when you reach my age, you don’t lose the weight fast, e."

Are her sons proud that their mom has maintained her figure? 

"Wala silang ganun," she laughed. "Hindi ko alam kung naiisip nila. Pero wala akong inkling na may ganun sila. Pero oo nga, hindi ko alam."

Gelli returns as a Kapuso after being gone for eight years. She's part of the soap Ika-5 Utos, where she plays Jake Vargas's mom. 

Gelli co-hosted the morning talk show SIS with her real-life sister Janice and her best friend Carmina Villarroel.  

Are they all still willing to do a show with a similar format? 

"It would be nice, but parang malabo... but it would be nice," Gelli mused. "Malabo kasi nasa kabila si Janice ngayon, e. Kami ni Mina, puwede."

This interview was held at the grand presscon of Ika-5 Utos.
