We’re finally graced with a glance of Baby Zia! And not just one, but two photos nonetheless.
Actress Marian Rivera has just posted a photo of Maria Letizia, her and actor Dingdong Dantes’ daughter, on her personal Instagram account.
In the caption for the photo, she expresses her gratefulness for her supportive and loving husband; and how she can now finally call her little family whole and herself a mother.
“41 weeks akong nag hintay, 18 hrs na nag labor. Sa mga oras na iyon, hindi ko inaasahang makakaya ko ang lahat. Pero dahil andiyan ka sa tabi ko, sa iyo ako kumuha ng lakas. Salamat Mahal ko. @dongdantes” she said.
At sa araw nga na iyon ng Nov 23, tuluyan na talaga tayong naging kumpleto; kasama ng Panginoon, ikaw, ako, at siya- si Maria Letizia. Ngayon, masasabi ko na tayo'y isa nang ganap na pamilya, at ako'y isa nang ganap na ina. Napakasarap ng biyayang ito. #MariaLetizia,” read the whole caption.
At 10 days old, little Zia can be seen in the photo bathed in light with her eyes closed, adorned with long lashes just like her mother’s, smiling contentedly.
A few minutes after Marian’s Instagram post is Dingdong’s post on his own Instagram account of what he says is one of his favorite photos of their daughter.
I may have a thousand photos of you already, but this one taken 8 days ago is definitely in my top 10. #MariaLetizia,” read the caption.
In an interview a few days after Baby Zia's birth, Dingdong revealed that his camera and phone have never been busier as he takes a photo of Zia almost every hour, and admits that he thinks Zia looks like Marian.
Two photos still aren’t enough though! Expect that we’ll be on the lookout for more updates on Baby Zia from doting parents Marian and Dingdong.
