1. Marian Rivera speaks up for the first time about giving birth and being a first-time mom
On Sunday Pinasaya, November 29, Marian Rivera had her very first interview after welcoming Baby Zia last November 23. When asked how she feels now that she's already a mom, she replied: “Ay, naku, alam mo yung pakiramdam na hindi mo maipaliwanag! Kapag tinititigan ko yung anak ko na, ‘Wow, thank you, Lord, binigyan Niyo ako ng napakasayang biyaya na walang kapantay talaga." The Kapuso primetime queen labored for 18 long hours, so she also took the opportunity to thank everyone who prayed for her and her baby's safety. “Gusto ko rin kunin ang pagkakataon na magpasalamat sa lahat ng nagdasal para sa aming dalawa ng anak ko na maging safe kaming dalawa. Thank you kasi naging malaking tulong talaga na nakaya ko ang pagli-labor, dyusko Lord!” she quips. Marian said the pain and struggle of giving birth was all worth it when she saw her baby. (pep.ph)
