Because it’s Mother’s Day, ABS-CBN.com prepared a list of kontrabidas that though may appear fierce and cruel in your favorite Kapamilya shows, are actually very loving and kind mothers in real life. Who are these celebrity moms?
Denise Laurel plays the role of a mistress named Toni Briones in the afternoon teleserye, Nasaan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita. Though Toni is naturally pleasant, her jealousy towards the legitimate family of her partner, Leandro seems to consume her.
In real life, Denise is a hands-on mother to her handsome son, Alejandro. She likes to post pictures and videos of him on her Instagram account where she calls him, “Lil Warrior.”
See these photos from Denise’s IG, @d_laurel.
In Inday Bote, Aiko Melendez plays the role of the manipulative Fiona who abducted dwarf Entoy (played by Alonzo Muhlach) to use him to her advantage and a perfectionist mother to son, Greg (played by Matteo Guidicelli).
In real life, Aiko loves her two children, Andrei and Marthena dearly and expressed through her Instagram bio that she is one proud mom to them.

Coney Reyes plays the role of the Angela Villanueva Laxamana or AVL for short in the primetime series, Nathaniel. Materialistic and greedy, AVL lost faith in God and instead, thinks that money is all a person needs.
