Is Dingdong Dantes really willing to let his daughter enter the world of showbiz?
In “Magandang Buhay” last Friday, Dingdong said he and his wife Marian Rivera will support whatever the decision of their daughter Zia when the time comes that she wishes to enter showbiz.
But today their priority as a couple is to give their precious child a good life and education.
“Magiging desisyon niya ‘yon later on. Pero sa ngayon ay ibibigay namin ang lahat ng opportunities para sa kanyang growth, especially education. Because ultimately, later on, ay kailangang maging desisyon niya kung ano man ang gusto niyang pasukin,”
[He will be his decision later on, but now we will give all the opportunities for his growth, especially education, because ultimately, later on, he needs to decide what he wants to go.]
“And kung anuman ‘yon, we will support her 100%. Kaya ngayon, the molding and guiding stage, ‘yun ang pinakamahalaga,”
[And if anything, we will support her 100%. So now is the molding and guiding stage, that’s the most important thing]
According to the actor, being Marian’s husband and father to baby Zia are the best things in his life.
“The best. Life-changing talaga. Conceptually, nalalaman mo lang ‘yan through other people kapag sinasabi nila na it will really change your life. But mapapatunayan mo talaga kung mangyari siya sa iyo, and it really has changed my life. It’s the best decision that I’ve made.”
[The best. It’s really life-changing. Conceptually, it’s just that you know through other people when they say that it will really change your life. But you can prove that it’s happening to you, and it really has changed my life. Best decision that I’ve made.]
Dingdong’s wedding to Marian was in December 2014. Baby Zia was born after almost a year.
