Bettinna Carlos and her seven-year-old daughter Gummy

Bettina Carlos was one proud momma as she watched her daughter Gummy do some stunts for her Gymnastics class.

It actually was the "Official Day 1" of the seven-year-old celebrity kid, but the host could tell that Gummy is a "natural athletic."

On Instagram, she wrote, "It makes me tear up to see you anak..."

Prior to enrolling Gummy in her class, Bettina said they had a mother-and-daughter agreement.

Her one condition was: "She needs to be responsible of her time."

That would include, "Still waking up early enough to fix herself and eat on her own to avoid rushing and consequently mummy stress in the morning."

According to Bettina, Gummy usually sleeps at 7:30-8:00 p.m., and is up by 6:30-7:00 a.m., simply "because she needs 11 hours of sleep."

The 29-year-old mom explained, "If she's late in school because she woke up late and was lazy to get up then it shows she's not ready for more activities.

"No extracurricular. No gymnastics because her priority is still going to school ON TIME (mummy is such a time nazi and yes you may call me a strict mother)."

At the latter part of her post, the celebrity mom thanked her daughter for trying her best to comply with their agreement.

"But I saw how she did her best to get up upon the alarm. And not forget to pray.

"Though I think she was half 'cheating' me here buying more time in bed.

"Anyway my point is, having a sport is a good way to teach not just time and routine discipline (punctuality) but more importantly priorities and responsibility."
