As part of one of the most beautiful families in local showbiz, Marian Rivera admitted she still gets shy when told they have been dubbed as “#FamilyGoals.” “Hindi ko masagot talaga yan (laughs). Bahala na silang humusga. Siguro prize yan kapag minamahal ka ng tao. Masarap isipin na minamahal nila kami especially Zia. Iba talaga yung pakiramdam. Sa lahat ng nagmamahal sa amin eh thankful kami diyan,” she said.
As one of the most in demand actresses in the industry, Marian said she still makes sure not to sacrifice time with her family especially her daughter Zia who is turning three this November. “Hindi talaga puwedeng wala. Lalo na ngayon may soap dapat ako. May soap din si Dong (Dingdong Dantes) so dapat isa lang sa amin yung magtratrabaho. Si Dong na muna magtratrabaho tapos ako na muna kay Zia. After ni Dong ako naman. Ayaw kasi namin na parehas kaming wala para kay Zia kasi kawawa naman kung parehas kaming wala,” she said.
Although she admits she wants Zia to study first before she thinks of joining showbiz, Marian couldn’t hide just how proud she is of her only child. “Mahilig talaga siya kumanta, mahilig siya sumayaw so nakakatuwa. Nag-vi-video pa. Pag nakikita niya kami ni Dong sinasabi niya, “Mama and dad love love,’ kinikilig siya. Weird nga eh. Nakakatuwa talaga,” she added.
