Dad Dantes likewise posted his own photo of their unica hija, writing: “She woke up in the 50’s!”
And hard work does pay off, as Rivera clenched her fist in pride after Zia bagged the “best costume” award from her school.
Dantes gave appreciative words to his wife, commenting “Gujab (sic), Mama!”
Fellow actresses Chyna Ortaleza and Sheena Halili meanwhile expressed their joyful amusement. Halili said that Rivera’s happiness in receiving the award may be comparable to winning a “best actress” recognition, to which Rivera replied: “diba! Iba pag anak na usapan! Lahat gagawin…” (I know, right? It’s different when it comes to your child! You’ll do anything.)
Nevertheless, both mother and daughter had a fun time dressing up. Good job indeed, Zia and Marian! JB
