“Ewan ko ba, gustung-gusto niya talaga mag-wave at nakangiti lagi ‘yan sa lahat,” – Marian

Marian truly enjoys talking about Zia. In most of her interviews, she ignores the negative questions or clarifications about issues that are long dead. She prefers to turn the focus on her unica hija who is now two years old.

She says she has more beautiful things to talk about like her very cute daughter, Zia

In the presscon, she enjoyed talking about how Zia was waving at people when they attended the wedding of Dra. Vicki Belo and Dr. Hayden Kho.

“Hindi tinuruan ‘yun, eh. Ewan ko ba, gustung-gusto niya talaga mag-wave at nakangiti lagi ‘yan sa lahat,” Marian said. (I didn’t teach her. She just likes to wave at people and she’s always smiling.)

So people are speculating that sooner or later, Zia would also enter the world of showbiz.

“Ayoko sana, eh. Gusto ko talaga makapagtapos ng pag-aaral niya,” Marian shared.

[I do not want to. I really want her to finish studies.]

Marian asked Ai Ai de las Alas not to get Zia as her flower girl for her wedding in December to fiancé Gerard Sibayan.

Marian said she will be very busy then, so she prefers it if Zia would be one less worry for her.

Marian and her husband Dingdong Dantes paid for her BFF’s wedding gown.

Ai Ai even asked Marian if she can make her wedding bouquet via Flora Vida.

“Sabi ko sa kanya, tingnan ko. Kasi, hindi pa ako nakagawa ng bouquet. Hindi ko alam kung magagawa ko,” she said with a smile.

[I said to her, I’ll see. I have not tried making a bouquet. I do not know if I can,]

Marian has already talked to the designer of the wedding gown, so it looks like there is truth to the rumors that she’ll pay for the gown.
