“That’s all in the past; let’s move on. It’s better to maintain a positive outlook in life, especially now that I’m having a baby,” said actress Marian Rivera, who was seen at a recent event exchanging pleasantries with fellow GMA 7 star Lovi Poe, with whom she purportedly had a rift.

According to past reports, Lovi allegedly got entangled in Marian and Heart Evangelista’s feud, which started on the set of their 2011 movie, the remake of the camp classic “Temptation Island.” But all’s well now, it seems, between Lovi and Marian.


“It’s okay now,” Marian, who’s six months into her pregnancy, told reporters at a press conference for the coming weekly musical-comedy program “Sunday PinaSaya,” which she will topbill with Ai-Ai de las Alas, Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola. “We’ve matured and are happy with our own lives now.”


Asked if she was also open to patching things up with “Lovi’s friend”—meaning Heart—Marian reiterated that it’s better to surround oneself with positive energy and move on. “There’s no problem as far as I’m concerned. You’ve never heard anything [bad] from me ever since,” the 30-year-old star said, adding that her family is her priority at the moment.

Hands-on parent

Marian is due to deliver a baby girl in the second week of November. She vowed to become a hands-on parent. “I won’t completely give up work, but of course, I’ll take care of her and give myself as much as I can,” said Marian.

“I would love to have lots of kids. It’s more fun. But I’ll be happy with whatever God gives us,” added the Kapuso talent, who tied the knot with Dingdong Dantes last year.

They have already decided on a name for the baby girl—something with Maria, Marian said. The actress has started to window shop for cribs and other baby needs. She’s also hoping to have a normal delivery, and has been exercising regularly to prepare for the big day.

Her pregnancy, she said, has likewise strengthened her bond with her husband: “He may be more excited than I am—he might tweet [even before the baby’s out],” she quipped, laughing.


Also featured in “Sunday PinaSaya”—which is expected to feature comedy sketches, games and musical numbers—are Alden Richards, Julie Anne San Jose, Barbie Forteza, Joey Paras, Valeen Montenegro and Jerald Napoles. It is set to replace “Sunday All Stars,” which will air its final episode today, August 2.

Over P10 million worth of prizes are expected to be given away on “Sunday PinaSaya’s” premiere on Aug. 9.
