How Dingdong and Marian divided their parenting job

At this point, Baby Z is undeniably a daddy’s girl. When Dingdong and Marian divided their parenting job, Marian explains, it was she who took on the role of disciplinarian.

“Sabi kasi ni Dong, `ikaw na ‘yong madalas niyang kasama, alangan naming ako pa ‘yong magsungit sa kanya pag nagkakamali siya. So, baka mas maging iwas siya sa akin. Hindi katulad ikaw, lagi niyang kasama.’ Oo nga naman.”

“Pero takot ‘yan sa akin” Marian says of Zia. “At saka, ano ‘yan, pag galit na’ko, `Mama, sorry, Mama, sorry.’ Magso-sorry siya, `Mama, love na.” At saka, pag ako nagiiyak-iyakan, ` Mama, stop, Love na’. Malambing soba.”

“Spoiled din naman siya sa amin. Pero in a nice way. Hindi to the point na maging bratinella. Dahil ako mismo, hindi siya puwedeng maging bratinella sa akin. At saka, takot nga siya sa akin. Sakin sumusunod ‘yan.”

Both blesses with good showbiz careers, Dingdong and Marian – popularly known, by the way, by their uni-name Dongyan – are nothing but thankful for life’s continued blessings. They both remain on top of their games as bankable TV and movie stars and trusted product endorsers.

“Kasi ‘kinasal ako, parang nagging okey naman ‘yong career ko,” Marian muses. “Hindi ko ine-expect na ang daming blessings. Sabi ko no’n, sigure pag nag-asawa ako, medyo la-lie-low na‘ko. True enough.

Nabuntis ako after the wedding. Nag-ano ako, e, nag-lie-low ako ng two-and-a-half years. Nawala ako sa sa soap opera. Sabi ko nga, kung ano ang nangyayari sa buhay ko, sobrang bonus na bonus na.”

But clearly, the DongYan couple’s priorities have changed since Zia came into their life.
