Marian still breastfeeding 9-month-old Baby Z
MARIAN Rivera-Dantes can’t ask for anything more. Marriage and motherhood made her bloom all the more.
Aside from that, she’s overjoyed that her noontime show on GMA 7, “Sunday PinaSaya (SP),” marked its first anniversary last month. The show continues to change the weekend viewing habit of Pinoys.
Hail Marian and the rest of SP’s wacky gang for spreading their joie de vivre around so well.
Here’s my chat with Marian:
Please share the latest on Baby Z (Zia).
I can go on and on talking about my baby. My motherhood journey is documented on my Instagram. Now that she’s 9 months old, I’m so grateful. Each month, the joy becomes more priceless. To hear my baby call me “mommy” makes my heart melt.
How do you balance being an actress, wife and mother?
It’s a tough balancing act, but with a supportive husband like Dingdong (Dantes), everything becomes easier. He understands that my focus now is more on Zia.
What’s your advice to mothers on how to be a hot mama like you?
I don’t make a conscious effort to be a hot mama. I don’t diet. I have to eat nutritious food, because I’m breastfeeding Zia.
What love advice would you give Zia when she’s of age?
To love herself. Because the man she loves will see that there’s no reason for him not to love her, too.
Could it be true that a show biz couple is on the verge of splitting up? The guy is said to be smitten with a personality who’s back on the scene.
His girlfriend is starting to get suspicious, so she guards him like a hawk, even when he’s in the studio working. Love Overkill can lead to “Love Over.”
Noel Cabangon and I fondly call each other “Friendship.” I always enjoy our chats in our Viber group, “CesDolNoVin,” along with our other close friends, Cesar Montano and Alvin Anson.
Buboy, Vin and I will turn into Noel’s fans for his “Traffic Jam” concert on Sept. 16 at the Music Museum, and on Oct. 21 at the PETA Theater (for tickets, call 8919999).
It’s one traffic jam we wouldn’t mind being stuck in as we sing along with Noel while he performs his hits—perfect for joyrides and road trips.
