Marian Rivera is a proud ‘padede’ mom.
The 34-year-old actress on Thursday said that she fully supports breastfeeding as she shared her firsthand experience of nursing her two children, Zia and Ziggy.
“Being mom of two beautiful kids sounds overwhelming at first, but needed to put up with my positive outlook and told myself ‘Kaya mo yan!’. If kinaya ko, kayang kaya nyo din! Breastfeeding is life saving and has lots of benefits for the baby, mom, entire family and the environment too,” she said.
Currently, Marian is nursing her second child, Ziggy, born Jose Sixto G. Dantes IV, whom she and husband Dingdong Dantes welcomed last April 16.
“Ngayon na dalawa na sila, I want to make sure I spend quality time with them not only with my bunso but with ate Zia and my husband (Dingdong Dantes) so I started to express and build my milk stash para naman kahit wala ako I can still provide breastmilk kay Ziggy,” she continued.
“Kaya proud akong sabihin na padede mom ako! Ano mang kapalit sa physical — all worthy. Mahalaga lumaki silang matalino, malusog at mapagmahal na mga anak,” she added.
The post quickly incited positive reactions not only from her followers but fellow celebrities, including Mariel Rodriguez, Rita Avila, and Nadine Samonte.
Other stars who are known advocates of breastfeeding include the likes of Toni Gonzaga, Jolina Magdangal, Bianca Gonzalez, Camille Prats, Saab Magalona, and Isabelle Daza.
