Even before she shot a new commercial endorsement with her daughter Zia, Marian Rivera-Dantes said she made sure her daughter had a say in the decision to work together in front of the camera, especially during a pandemic.

Si Zia kasi every time na may ginagawa kami, tinatanong ko muna siya. Minsan pag may nagsasabi na may gustong kumuha kay Zia, so ang gagawin ko tatanungin ko muna ang anak ko, ‘Anak, gusto mo bang sumama kasi [may] ganito akong gagawin?’ Sabi niya, ‘Mom, I want to do that!’ So mas maganda siguro may free will din yung anak ko na sabihin niya kung gusto niya or ayaw niya especially sobrang busy niya rin sa pag-aaral niya. So tinanong ko siya dito, sabi niya, ‘Mom, I like it!’ Sabi niyang ganun. Kita mo naman magaling pa sa akin mag-heart sign di ba? (laughs),” she shared during the WalterMart media launch held last February 9.

Being WalterMart’s celebrity ambassadors this year, Marian admittedwas a big advantage because of the pandemic. “Mapili talaga ako di ba? Isa ito sa mga bagay na nakakatulong talaga sa akin sa pang araw-araw namin. At nung panahon ng pandemya, lahat tayo takot lumabas, lahat tayo hindi alam kung saan bibili, parang nagkakaubusan lahat. Walang salita na hindi ko papayagan si Zia hindi makasama sa Waltermart lalo na yung as family na yung turing namin sa isa’t isa. Very thankful ako na nakilala ko siya sa buhay ko hindi lang dahil endorsement, tinuturing ko na kapamilya talaga namin na talagang in times na kailangan talaga namin nandiyan talaga ang Waltermart para sa amin,” she explained.

The celebrity mom also shared how proud she was of her daughter’s skills in front of the camera when they shot the commercial inside their home with approval from husband Dingdong Dantes. “Parang sa totoo lang wala akong binatbat. Kalahati lang niya ako sa totoo lang. Sa bahay lang (kami) kasi ang mga bata hindi pa puwede lumabas ngayon hindi ba? Kaya malaking factor din na nasa bahay kami na naging okay din kay Dong di ba? Kasi dito lang namin sa bahay ginawa,” she said.

With her daughter now comfortable in front of the camera, Marian also revealed that she and her son Sixto also have some commercials in the works this year. “May mga susunod kami, mga dalawa pa,” she added.
