Jennylyn Mercado remains as one of GMA’s indisputable talents as she has been with the network for more than a decade.
However, it was in 2014 that she has reached the peak of her career when she won Best Actress during the 40th Metro Manila Film Fest for ‘English Only, Please’. Since then, she has become a frequent collaborator of director Dan Villegas and screenwriter Antoinette Jadaone as she appeared in their next films.
Despite her momentous win, Jennylyn has so much to offer than her acting like things that woud totally make us jealous on a daily basis. Here are 8 reasons why we want to be just like her!
1. She is one of the sexiest women in the land.
It is no surprise that Jennylyn made it to For Him Magazine’s (FHM) 100 Sexiest Women list since she has rocked a sexier body post-pregnancy. She claimed the first spot last year, replacing Sexiest Hall of Famer Marian Rivera. Her sexiness can also be seen in billboards and catalogues since she is the model for Avon’s intimates.
2. She is our fitness goals.
Jen, as she is also called, works hard to maintain her svelte body. She has chronicled her fitness journey on Instagram from time to time - she does pilates and trains to become a triathlete. She looks flawless in any position and we hope that we will also achieve that when we hit the gym!
3. She is in a relationship with one of the hottest men in the country – Dennis Trillo.
Love is sweeter the second time around – it looks like Dennis is willing to wait for her in marriage. They post the successes of each other on their Instagram pages, which makes us kilig every time.
4. She has the most adorable pet.
Although he might be new to her family, her teacup Pomeranian is one of the cutest celebrity pets we have ever seen. Jen has named her pup Conor, who has also made his appearance in the Instagram account of his ‘Papaw’.
5. She has the cutest son, Alex Jazz.
Her son with actor Patrick Garcia has been dubbed as the ‘next heartthrob of Philippine showbiz’ as he is growing more handsome each day. Jazz celebrated his eight birthday two months ago with a Pokemon theme.
6. She can belt out a tune really good.
Lastly, Jen is also known for her singing prowess. She now has eight albums under her belt since she started her career in showbiz. Her recent effort is the extended play (EP) ‘Jennylyn Mercado – Ultimate’ which has ‘Hagdan’ as its carrier single. Not only is she a versatile actress but she is also an amazing songstress!
