For Marian, the family is life’s greatest blessing.

The Father’s Day issue of Esquire with Dingdong Dantes and daughter Zia on the cover has already gathered many likes on the IG post of Marian Rivera-Dantes.

Many were amused at the concept of the cover, with Dingdong holding Zia with one hand, as she smilingly sits like a little lady. The proud Mrs. Dantes captioned it with, “Family is life’s greatest blessing, I’m so blessed to have you both in my life. #Priceless #ProudToBeNanay #BreastFedBabyZ.”

In an interview, Marian said she enjoyed watching her husband and daughter during the photoshoot. She feels blessed to be Dong’s wife and mother to Zia. She plans to breastfeed her 18-month-old daughter as long as she has milk. Marian hopes to be blessed with another child after doing a teleserye this year.
On Mother’s Day, Dingdong Dantes posted a photo of his daughter Zia and wife Marian happily sharing a meal. He captioned it with a sweet message for Marian : I live for moments like this. Happy mother’s day to my significant other! Thank you for building this family with me.
The Dantes family was in Spain on Mother’s Day and they celebrated with the family of Marian’s Spanish father.

Kapuso Primetime King and Queen Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera-Dantes will be part of this year’s Philippine Independence Day celebration in Vallejo and Carson City in California. Dingdong and Marian are happy to be invited by our kababayan (countrymen) in the US.

“We’re excited to celebrate a very important event in Philippine history with our Kapuso abroad,” Dingdong stated. “It’s an honor to be part of Pista ng Nayon in Vallejo, California to entertain our countrymen,” Marian said.

The DongYan performances will be the highlight of the whole day celebration alongside with a string of cultural presentation courtesy of talented Fil-Am artists.

There will also be a parade to be led by Filipino-American leaders, dignitaries and other VIPs. There will be another celebration on June 10 in Carson City Veterans Park.
