Mylene Dizon: A Real-Life Supermom

She may play a struggling mother on TV, but in real life, the Mara Clara actress is a strong, confident, single mother of two boys. Peek at Cosmo's shoot with the trio!

Mylene BTSWe always encourage our Cosmo girls to be fun and fearless individuals, and every once in a while, we come across women who stand apart from the rest. This month, we've shined the spotlight on a particular type of woman to revere: the Single Mother. The article "They're All Single Hot Mommas!" in the March issue of Cosmo looks at the reality of the situation that many women experience. Experts, celebs, and everyday girls give their two-cents on the matter and offer advice on how to deal with solo parenting.

In the ABS-CBN teleserye Mara Clara, Mylene Dizon portrays Susan, a woman who finds herself in a precarious situation and must raise a child without her husband. In real life, there are many women who similarly have no choice in the matter, while others—such as Mylene—make the conscious decision to be an independent parent. In her case, the choices she made for her family have made her a Supermom to two healthy and happy sons. One-year-old Lucas and 6-year-old Tomas have a special bond with their mother, as we witnessed at our exclusive shoot.

The boys made themselves at home in the Summit studio, where Tomas found a new playmate (Valerie Concepcion's daughter Fiona) and Lucas spent hours playing with the Cosmo team. There was never a dull moment with these adorable kids, and their fun, fearless mother was such a joy to work with. She surely is amazing for being able to juggle two kids and a successful showbiz career. Launch the gallery below to see photos from Cosmo's exclusive family shoot!
