Aside from the fact that Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera are one of the most attractive showbiz couples today, another undeniable thing is that they are very loving parents to their three-year-old, Zia.
For Zia, who turned three last November 23, they created a video called “Three Years of Happiness,” which shows what they love about her, as well as their hopes and dreams for her. Dingdong and Marian posted snippets on their Instagram accounts and wrote their own intros.
Dingdong wrote: “Last night before going to bed, Marian and I reminisced about how our little Letizia changed our lives. With the same amount of excitement, we’d like to share some of the most precious snippets of how these three years of happiness have evolved, right on this special birth week of Zia.”
On her post, Marian says, “Isang biyaya sa amin si Letizia. Ngayong 3 years old na siya, gusto naming ibahagi ang ligaya na dulot ng kaniyang makulay na pagkatao—isang exciting na proseso na parati naming ipinagpapasalamat. Talaga namang Three Years of Happiness ito para sa amin.”
The full video, which can be viewed on YouTube, starts off with their romantic wedding, followed by Zia’s first appearance via sonogram. The voice-overs are of Marian and Dingdong sharing stories and the unique qualities of their little girl.
“Si Zia yung batang matindi ang sense of humor,” Marian shares, “kaya siguro sobrang kulit niya. Friendly siya at the same time sobrang sweet na bata.”
Dingdong agrees: “Amazing kung paano siya naging ganito ka-jolly na tao.”
The proud mom recalls instances that demonstrate Zia’s friendliness and smarts, then adds, “Hindi ako magsasawa na turuan siya araw-araw at i-remind siya kung gaano namin siya kamahal.”
Dingdong promises his daughter, “Whatever you need in life, I am just here to provide. Just promise me whatever you do, don’t be afraid. That’s how we got here, that’s how you got here. That’s how we have you.”
