Marian Rivera says Christmas for Team Dantes this year will be, as usual, a family affair. She, her husband Dingdong Dantes and their unica hija Baby Maria Letizia Dantes will spend time with their families. “We’re having a Christmas break from the taping of my show, ‘Super Ma’am’, kaya vacation mode talaga kami ngayon,” [We’re really on vacation mode.] she says.
“Christmas eve, doon kami sa family ni Dong at sa mismong Christmas Day, punta naman kami sa lola at mama ko sa Cavite. Mas masaya ang Pasko namin ngayon kasi two years old na si Baby Zia at madaldal na. Mas naa-appreciate na yung Kapaskuhan and looking forward siya to opening her Christmas presents.”
[On Christmas eve, we will go to Dingdong’s family. On Christmas Day, we will go to my lola and mama in Cavite. This year’s Christmas is happier because Zia is already two years old and she’s super talkative. She now appreciates Christmas and is looking forward to opening her Christmas presents.
She says her husband has prepared a special present for their respective families. “On December 26, aalis kaming lahat, ang family nina Dong at ang family ko, pero kung saan yung destination namin, ayaw sabihin ni Dong. Siya lang ang nakakaalam para surprise daw. Lagi naman siyang ganun kahit before. Sinasabi lang niya kung ano ang mga dapat kong dalhin sa pagbibiyahe namin.”
[On December 26, we will all leave, Dong’s family and mine. As for our destination, Dong doesn’t want to reveal it yet. He’s the only one who knows where we’re going. He just tells us what we should bring for our trip.]
How about his dad, Papa Fran Gracia, who lives in Spain with his family? Will they get to visit him also?
“I promised him bibisitahin namin siya, pero kapag natapos na ang pagte-taping ko for ‘Super Ma’am’. Busy rin si Dong shooting a new movie for Viva kasama si Anne Curtis so tatapusin din niya muna yun. Ngayong Kapaskuhan, gusto kong batiin ng Merry Christmas at Happy New Year lahat ng mga regular viewers namin ng ‘Super Ma’am’. Abangan nyo dahil marami pang exciting episodes na mapapanood kayo. Bukod sa mga tamawo, zombie, aswang, tiyanak, magkakaroon ng iba pang mga bagong kalaban ang character kong si Minerva as ‘Super Ma’am’ kaya huwag na huwag kayong bibitaw gabi-gabi sa panonood sa amin.”
[I promised him that we’ll visit him. But only if I finish taping for “Super Ma’am”. Dingdong is also busy with shooting a movie alongside Anne Curtis so he has to finish that as well. This Christmas, I want to greet all of our regular viewers a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Stay tuned because we have much more exciting episodes for you. Aside from Tamawos, zombies, ghouls, etc, there will be new enemies that Minerva and Super Ma’am will fight. So, don’t let go and watch us every weeknight.]
