Marian shares a photo of Zia with her Daddy on the bed, the two look at eachother mouth wide open.
“Tignan mo ang cute! Minsan tinititigan ko na lang sila, pag nag lalaro sila iba rin ang bonding nila eh.” (Look so cute! Sometimes i just stare at them, when they play.)
Marian revealed that Dingdong is such a doting Dad to Maria Letizia.
“Hanggat kaya niyang umuwi habang nasa trabaho uuwi yun titignan niya lang anak namin, lalaruin tapos aalis na siya ulit. Tapos babalik na naman! So ako ‘Ano ba yan! Nag-aaksaya ka ng gasolina!”(he will go home from work whenever he can, just to see and play with our daughter. Then he will go back to work then come home again, so i was like “you’re wasting gasoline!”
Dingdong is also a hands-on Daddy. Nag aadjust kami sa schedule ng isat-isa, so since wala ako sa bahay siya lahat. Siya ang magpaplit ng diaper, siya ang mag aaliw, siya ang magpapa dede, siya lahat.(we are adjusting according to our schedule, so since i’m not home he will be the one to change diapers, play with her and feed her milk. He does everything.
There are somethings however that Marian prefers to do with her husband Dingdong, Hanggat maari pag pinapaliguan si Zia kaming dalawa ni Dong. At sa morning pag dilat ng mga mata ni Zia kaming dalawa yung katabi niya. Gusto namin hanggat kaya ganun palagi. (As much as possible we want to bath Zia together. And every morning when Zia wakes up she sees us both besides her.)
Ultimately her dream is for them to have a solid relationship with their daughter, and to raise her in a loving home.“sabi ko nga spoil in a nice way, kasi ako spoil nama ako eh pero hindi brat. (I’m spoil but i’m not brat.)
And what are their fears in raising a girl?
“Nung una ang saya ni Dong na babae tapos na realize niya, ‘Saan ko pag aaralin ang anak ko? Nako! All girls mamaya maligawan yun!’. Minsan niloloko ko, ‘Ay may boobs na si Zia!’ Sasabihin niya ‘tumigil ka nga!'(at first Dong was so happy the he realize ‘where should i send her to school, it should be all girls! You know what if someone courts her?’ sometimes i teases him ‘Ay Zia has boobs already!’ Dong will say ‘stop it!’)
Dingdong is such a loving and protective Daddy to Baby Zia.
