Beauty Gonzalez has just shown that moms can go for anything if they've got what it takes.
The 27-year-old celebrity mom stood out among the throng of celebrities who walked the runway at Bench Fashion Week Holiday 2018 on Saturday, September 1, at Bench Tower, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) had a chat with the ABS-CBN actress after the show about how she prepared for her runway walk.
Beauty said, "I did my normal thing, my normal routine. I did jumping ropes and boxing, and a lot of prayers!"
The former Pinoy Big Brother housemate proudly flaunted her fit body at the Bench show, proving that moms like her can manage to have time to take care of herself even when she's busy juggling work and family.
Beauty told PEP.ph, "I've been fat for almost all my life and then I got pregnant. For me to have this body right now, I worked my best talaga.
"'Cause I wanna show to everyone na kaya nila rin, na even if you're a mom already, you can still walk on a Bench runway."
Beauty shared she did not pay attention to her weight when she was younger.
The ALV talent only realized the importance of living a healthy lifestyle when she grew older.
She said, "It was just a matter of time when I became mature na in life, then dun na ako natuto."
Asked how she felt when told she was "fat" during her early years, Beauty said, "Wala akong magawa 'cause it's true naman, e."
But as she matured, the Kapamilya actress learned to turn the negative comments into something positive.
She explained, "Why will I feel sad about it? Lalo akong malulungkot and I'll eat the world.
"I'd rather, like, accept it and know that it's true, then I have to work on it."
Meanwhile, Beauty described being a mom to her two-year-old daughter Olivia this way: "Fantastic! It's good!"

The Kapamilya mom admitted that it's a lot harder to take care of Olivia now that she's a toddler, but she's been enjoying every minute of it.
Beauty said, "Mahirap kasi she's malikot na but, you know, every day is fantastic!
"Mahirap and I don't know how to do it. Hindi ko rin alam how I survive every day.
"May be just think positive!"
The Pusong Ligaw actress has one wish for Olivia: That she would have a normal childhood.
But if someday, showbiz beckons, Beauty said, "Maybe when she asks for it but now, no na muna."
When asked about her daughter's latest milestones, she said, "She knows na how to negotiate!"
