The Dantes family graces the cover of YES! Magazine’s December issue.
During the YES! interview shoot, the first time parents took turns in taking care of Baby Zia.
Even when Mommy Marian was on the makeup chair, she still made sure that Baby Zia would look pretty in her white dress by constantly checking up on her.
The proud dad and mom share candidly their secrets to having a healthy balance between showbiz and family life.
The Super Ma’am star preened Baby Zia, gave her instructions on how to pose, and kept her comfortable throughout the shoot!
In her YES! interview, Marian Rivera-Dantes admits that while she and her husband Dong Dantes love spoiling Baby Zia, she makes sure that their daughter would not grow up to be a brat.
“Sabi kasi ni Dong, ‘E, ikaw na ’yong madalas niyang kasama, alangan namang ako pa ’yong masungit 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 nag-iiyak-iyakan, ‘Mama, stop. Love na.’ Malambing, sobra…”
“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. Sa akin, sumusunod ’yan.”
Dingdong Dantes, Marian Rivera, and their daughter Zia are the cover stars of YES December 2017 issue, out now in stands.
