Dingdong Dantes is one supportive husband to Marian Rivera! Following the official announcement that Marian is set to become part of the judging panel for the upcoming Miss Universe pageant on December 12 in Israel, Dingdong took to Instagram to show support for his wife.
On December 4, Dingdong quoted a lyric from the song "Ikaw Ang Miss Universe ng Buhay Ko" composed by the band Hotdog. He wrote, "Sabi nga ng bandang Hotdog, 'Malinaw na malinaw, ngayon at ano mang araw, ikaw ang Miss Universe ng buhay ko.'"
He added in his post, "Always proud of you, @marianrivera!"
Marian, feeling smitten over her hubby's post, responded, "Awww! Umuwi ka na! Sobrang miss na kita!"
Marian is set to become the fourth Pinay to have the rare opportunity to be a judge on the pageant. She recently addressed bashers during a press conference on December 3 who were questioning as to why she was selected to become a part of the pageant's selection committee. Her quote during the press conference was shared by Dingdong on Instagram Stories, showing his full support for his wife.
The quote stated, "Aaminin ko, hindi naman English ang first language ko kundi Filipino. At kinuha nila ako dahil sa aking body of work bilang isang Pilipina. Basta ang masasabi ko lang, at kilala niyo naman ako na hindi ako mapagpanggap. I-eexpress ko ang sarili ko sa naaayon sa nararamdaman ko."
