MANILA, Aug 22 (Mabuhay) — Actress Beauty Gonzalez has advised fellow mothers to love themselves first.

“The best advice I’ve ever received is to love yourself first. Love yourself as a mom,” she said during an interview with Luis Manzano in his vlog.

“Sabihin man nila na dapat ibigay mo lahat ng pagmamahal mo sa anak mo, no,” added Beauty, who has a daughter with husband Norman Crisologo.

According to the actress, her pronouncement was the best motherhood tip that she has ever received.

She stressed that mothers should not solely focus on their husbands and children as they also deserve to be valued as individuals.

When asked by Manzano if they are ready to have a new addition to their family, the actress quickly replied with a “no.”

“If you do the math with me and my husband, I would rather enjoy the rest of his life na kaming tatlo and traveling around the world… and not seeing him too old to change diapers pa, or run after kids,” said Gonzalez, who has a 26-year age gap with her husband.

“I’m happy with Olivia,” she continued. “And me also, bata rin ako eh. So okay na ako.” (MNS)
