Marian about Zia: She’s like me girly and talkative!

Marian : it’s fine with me if I get pregnant in 2017.

Dingdong Dantes and Ma­rianRivera-Dantes take turns in taking care of their daughter Zia..

Every Sunday, Dong is in charge of Zia since Marian has a noontime show Sunday Pinasaya.

Marian is glad that since Yan Ang Morning ended, she has more time for her daughter.


“Now we’re okay. We cannot afford to both work on the same day,” Marian said.

Marian is happy when told that Zia looks more like her as she grows up. “Eeeeeeeee!”,she shrieked excitedly.

“She’s apparently like me, ang kikay (girly). Sometimes when I tell her to stop, ‘like the dra­wer has button/s right? If she pulls it, she might fall.”

“‘Zia, no!’ She would make faces. She really takes after me! Yes. Also she’s very bubbly,” Yan Yan shared.


Zia already knows how to say the words Mama ang Papa. “She’s talkative!” Marian said.

Yan’s wish is still the same, that her daughter will finish her studies before entering whatever field she wants to get into. So, is it now okay to have a second child?

“Not yet. It will be okay to have a child next year! Ayyyy! If the Lord wills it. I’m okay with a 2 year age gap. I want to breastfeed until she’s one year old. Before she turns 2.. Yes, before! Ha! Ha! Ha!” Marian declared.
