Chynna Ortaleza believes that the best time for women to get pregnant is in their 20s.
In the February 15 session of Kapuso ArtisTambayan, she discussed parenting along with fellow celebrity moms Yasmien Kurdi and LJ Reyes.
Chynna became pregnant at the age of 32; Yasmien, at 25; LJ, at 22.
Though the wife of Kean Cipriano had an easy pregnancy, Chynna said her energy was not how it used to be when she was in her 20s.
she said, “Luckily, kahit 32 ako, hindi ako nahirapan na dalhin si Stellar.
"But it's a different story now that she's growing up. Kasi ngayon, mag-34 na ako, ang hirap niyang habulin.
"As in talagang ngayon ko na-understand kung bakit ina-advice sa mga babae to get pregnant in your 20s because nasa prime yung body mo."
So moms her age should really find time to work out and be physically fit.
"My advice, number one, I'm sorry, if you're a stay-at-home mom and even I, I am not always working out, you really need to work out.
"You have to make yourself strong for your child.
"Kung walang time magpunta sa gym, meron namang paraan sa bahay.
"May mga applications na puwede ninyong gamitin or yung daily activities niyo ng anak niyo, yun na yung magiging exercise mo.
"Pretty much that's how you keep strong."
She also started switching to a healthier lifestyle by including "organic things" in her diet.
Part of her daily goal these days if to "become healthy."
"Ako talaga, never kong naisip na magbi-VCO [Virgin Coconut Oil] and honey ako every day with Turmeric.
"I make Turmeric tea kasi it helps in lowering your cholesterol."
Before, she didn't like taking Vitamin C.
"Noon kasi may pumasok sa utak ko na allergic ako sa Vitamin C. Hindi ko alam kung bakit? Basta ayoko talaga yung umiinom ako ng Vitamin C.
"Pero ngayon, kailangan na kailangan ‘yan now that you’re a mom."
Lastly, a must-do for mommies "even if mahirap gawin" is to get enough sleep.
