“Gusto namin ni Dong, lumaki siyang mabait at masayahin” – Marian on Zia

DECEMBER 30, 2014 was the royal wedding of Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera at the Cathedral of Immaculate Conception in New York, Cubao, Quezon City.

November 23, 2015, Marian gave birth to her unica hija Letizia Gracia Dantes. So, the life of the couple grew stronger because Zia grew very sweet and talkative. The couple does not leave, here and abroad, without bringing Zia.

So after Christmas, December 26, together with their entire families, they went to Siargao and they were definitely there to also celebrate their third anniversary. Will baby number 2 be made in Siargao?

Before the couple left, Dingdong and Marian made live videos for their fans and friends, and they were free to ask the couple. One of their questions is how they maintain their relationship well together even when they are both busy with their current work, Dingdong, doing a movie shooting with Anne Curtis for Viva Films and Marian, with the filming of Super Ma’am .

“Hindi namin kinalilimutang gawin pa rin ni Marian ang mga nakagawian na namin tulad ng humahanap kami ng oras na magkasama kami lamang dalawa. Hindi naman dahil busy na kayo pareho, wala na kayong time para sa isa’t isa. Importante ‘yon sa pagsasama ng mag-asawa.

[We do not forget to still do our routine like looking for the time when we’re just together. Not because you’re both busy, you wouldnt have time for each other. Time is important in marriage.]

What is Marian’s wish for Baby Zia?

“Gusto namin ni Dong, lumaki siyang mabait at masayahin. Siya yong batang hindi lumaking iyakin, lagi siyang masaya at mapagmahal sa lahat ng tao, kahit hindi niya kilala, nginingitian niya. Kaya nga hindi ko matagalan na hindi ko siya kasama.”

[Dong and I want that she grows up to be kind and cheerful. She’s a kid that did not grow up to be a crybaby. She’s always happy and affectionate to all people, even if she does not know, she smiles. So I can not stand that I’m not with her.]

Dingdong’s caption on their picture, “Three years of celebrating Christmas with the baby on my right and about a decade with this other baby on my left. (Marian and Dingdong dated for seven years before they got married).
