Marian Rivera and daughter Maria Letizia finally made their first appearance together.
As the new ambassadors of the brand, Marian cheerfully showed off baby Zia at the press launch of Johnson’s Baby Milk + Oats line on Tuesday afternoon.
Marian revealed that she and husband Dingdong Dantes’s first born is the reason she is opting to take limited projects as of the moment.
“Naging honest naman ako sa kanila na ang priority ko talaga is si Zia,” she said about her home network.
The first time mom affirmed that being a mother is really an “unglamorous job.”
"Lalo na kapag hands on mom ka, ako kasi very hands on ako kay Zia at the same time nagpapadede pa ko ng anak ko for seven months,” she said. “Ako lahat, kaming mag-asawa lahat sa bahay, very hands on. So madalas man puyat sa anak ko, pero priceless kasi ang sarap magkaro’n ng anak and iba ang nadudulot na ligaya, eh.”
But Marian has not really set aside her career for Baby Zia, although she admits that she might take a break after her talk show Yan Ang Morning finishes its first season.
Speaking of the show, Marian’s ninang Kris Aquino appeared on the show last week. The aforementioned TV appearance was the first for Kris after the Queen of All Media bid the showbiz industry adieu some months back to prioritize her health.
To this Marian said, “Well para ma-interview ko ang isang Kris Aquino, siyempre isang malaking karangalan ‘yan para sa show namin at pinagbigyan niya talaga ang hiling ko na ‘Ninang mag-guest ka ha?’”
She adds, “Paguwi na paguwi niya talaga! Sa akin ata siya nag first appearance since nakaalis siya so thankful ang Yan Ang Morning sa kanya.”
Will she be open to being a guest on Kris’s show if and when she gets back on TV?
“Sana payagan ako,” she ended.
