Marian’s father and Zia meet for the first time

Kapuso Primetime Queen ended her European vacation with husband Dingdong Dantes and Baby Zia in Madird, Spain to visit her father Javier Gracia.

Dingdong posted on Instagram the photos of Marian and Zia bonding with Gracia family.


“@marianrivera with her siblings, missing 2 more sisters (Jenny and Kimberly) who were at work when these photos were taken. #aroundZworld”


He also gave a heartfelt message to Marian’s father.

“Thank you very much papa @javiergraciaa, @meire_martinelli, Sheily, Elizabeth, and Javier jr. for being with us during our last 5 meaningful days in Spain. Hasta luego!”


It is the first time that Baby Zia will meet her grandfather Francisco Javier Gracia.

They stayed for one week in Spain and had the chance to bond with her family.


This trip to Spain is surely a memorable one for the Dantes family.

Their get together was shared on Instagram which included video with her young half-siblings.

Dingdong, Marian and Zia started their 15-day vacation in Greece where they enjoyed window shopping on the quaint streets of Fira.

From Santorini, Greece they went to Italy to attend the wedding of celebrity stylist Pam Quinones.



And from Italy their next stop was Spain.

After their vacation, Marian Rivera will start taping for her new teleserye in the Kapuso Network via “The Good Teacher.”

Other cast included are Ms. Helen Gamboa, Kim Domingo, Ash Ortega, Jerald Napoles, and Kristoffer Martin to name a few.

Currently, Marian is hosting TADHANA, a weekly drama anthology featuring the stories of Overseas Filipino Workers and she’s a mainstay in Sunday Pinasaya.
