Janice de Belen's three daughters (L-R) Inah, 25, Kaila, 20, and Moira, 24.


Though her kids are already grown-ups, Janice de Belen's one major rule still stand.

Her son Luigi Muhlach, with actor Aga Muhlach, has his own family, while her children—Inah, 25, Moira, 24, Kaila, 20, and Yuan, 17—with ex-husband John Estrada still live with her.

The celebrity mom has imposed a 1 a.m. curfew on all her children.

In her interview YES! magazine, she said, "Sinasabi ko parati sa kanila, 'Umuwi kayo ng sakto sa curfew niyo para makalabas kayo ulit. If you do not listen and follow me, the harder your life is going to be.'"

She resumed, "Kesa naman good time ka ngayon, hindi ka na makakalabas ulit."

According to her girls, the 47-year-old actress even created a group chat on Facebook.

And a few minutes before one o'clock in the morning, she would send a barrage of messages, which everyone in the group will get to read.

If they fail to go home on time,  Inah revealed that a "sermon" would be waiting for them.

Giggling, the eldest girl added, "mostly dada."

Sometimes, Janice would simply give her kids the cold shoulder.

Kaila and Moira said, "Iyong silent treatment iyong mas nakakatakot kesa sa dadakdakan ka niya."

Nonetheless, Janice's youngest son threw in, "We have a certain curfew, but it's not that she's very protective.

"She taught me how to enjoy life.

"She teaches us a lot about life, and we really appreciate that so much.

"She's probably the best mom I'll ever have."

The three sisters also share one spacious room in their Parañaque family home.

Janice explained to YES!, "Para iyong camaraderie nila as a family, hindi masisira.

"Maghihiwalay-hiwalay din naman iyan pag mag-aasawa na."

On such set-up, Kaila commented, "We're never alone because we live in one room.

"So even if there are times na we wanna be alone, we're stuck with each other pa rin.

"If kunwari, one of us wants to be alone in a comfortable place, we have to find another spot around the house to be alone."

For Inah's part, she said, "Even if our whole life we stayed in one room lang, we grew a lot closer here.

"I think we spend more time together now."

Here's a peek into Inah's side of the room with their dog Sansa:
