Kapuso Primetime couple and new parents Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes celebrated the one-month-old milestone of her unica hija, Baby Zia, by posting super adorable photos of her on Instagram. Marian posted a close-up photo of Baby Zia, while Dingdong also posted a photo of her "little angel" sleeping. These are only the third and fourth photos of Baby Zia that her parents have shared publicly.
Previously, actor-producer and new dad Dingdong Dantes said he and his wife are really worried about their daughter's social media presence, but welcome social media accounts by fans dedicated to giving updates about their daughter. "Basta masasabi namin na yung support nila sa family namin ay intact", he said in an interview with Pep.ph.
The new parents are also very eager to share their daughter's photos, as they recognize the clamor of their fans to get updates about Baby Zia's life. They do not, however, post her photos on a schedule. “Parang ayaw naman naming planuhin, e, kung papano namin siya gagawin. Basta kung ano yung feel namin sa mga araw na yun, kung ganun lang, e, di hanggang ganun lang din," Dantes explained. he also added that they want to maintain some sort of normalcy when it comes to the photos of their daughter that they share.
The new dad also gave an update on his wife, saying Marian will not be returning to work until February next year at the earliest, and that right now, she is focused on fulfilling her mommy duties, especially breastfeeding. “Wala siyang ibang priority ngayon kundi yun, nakakahanga talaga,” said Dantes about her wife’s dedication to give the best nutrition for their child.
Her friend Teena Barretto recently shared a photo of her breastfeeding her little one, dubbing her “padede mom.” Another friend of hers, Joy Wambangco Rustia, also admired how Marian is caring for her little one. “Cannot believe how hands-on she is taking care of her little princess,” she captioned her post.
Happy one-month-old, Baby Zia! Here’s to more adorable and too-cute photos of you!
