    As public figures, celebrities are expected to share bits and pieces from their private lives. This expectation even grew with the rise of social media. Gaining over one million followers on Instagram alone, Aubrey Miles admits her celebrity status once caused her to feel pressure as a mom.

    The actress shares that having a strong social media presence comes with its own challenges. One of them is drawing the line between sharing updates about herself and her kids.

    The mom of three said she first felt pressured to open more about her life as a mother with Hunter, her first child with her longtime partner, Troy Montero.

    "Before, I was pressured with Hunter because with Hunter, parang first baby namin ni Troy. And Troy Montero is also in showbiz so everyone's expecting [us] to post more," Aubrey told SmartParenting.com.ph in an exclusive interview.

    The same goes with her youngest child, Rocket when people would ask about her milestones. 

    "With Rocket, right now, especially pandemic and siguro they're asking more of, 'What is she doing now?'

    "Pag nagpo-post ako, like no videos na she's talking or playing, more photos lang, everyone's like, 'Is she talking right now?' Sabi ko, 'Yes, she talks but she's not talkative," Aubrey said.


    While Aubrey knows that sharing about her personal life is part of the job, she has now learned to define her priorities when managing her presence online.

    "For me, I want them (public) to know na, first is fitness, my plants, family, then kids kung gusto [ko]."

    "Ayun lang 'yung mga pressure ko na sharing about yung milestone ng kids. And usually talaga they do compare, especially kapag celebrity. It happens pero I understand. That's why sabi ko, I won't make my social media all about kids," Aubrey adds.

    Being a fit mom

    Aubrey says that more than sharing family updates, she wants to use her social media platform to inspire others, especially when it comes to health and fitness.

    "Parang hindi lang 'yan for looks, for your mental health [din]. Kapag alam mong healthy ka,  you feel lighter," she shared.

    Being tagged as a "fit mom," Aubrey says she wants to promote fitness as a form of self-care. She says fitness goes beyond achieving a sexy figure.

    "Hindi naman kailangan sexy or fit na may muscle ka. It's not like that. Parang that you know you're being active. It's also for your self-care," Aubrey said.
