Marian Rivera has expressed her appreciation toward husband Dingdong Dantes, after her Miss Universe journey as a member of the pageant’s selection committee.

Rivera conveyed her gratitude to Dantes, addressing him as the “best husband I could ask for,” as seen on her Instagram page yesterday, Dec. 14.


“Before this trip ends I’d like to thank the best husband I could ask for — from being my cheerleader to [water boy], thank you for everything that you do for us,” she said while showing a photo of them hugging and smiling at each other.

“Thanks for creating memories with me so that we can look back at them together. Love you!” the actress added.


Dantes, together with Rivera’s glam team, flew to Israel to accompany her in her judging stint.

Meanwhile, in a separate post, Rivera also expressed her gratitude for a “priceless experience” in Israel, mentioning the friendships and memories she made throughout her stay.

“Goodbye Israel! Thank you for the priceless experience. Thankful for all the friends and memories I’ve made here,” she said. “Hope to be back someday.”


Rivera served as one of the judges in the recently held Miss Universe pageant in Eilat, Israel. The country’s delegate Beatrice Luigi Gomez finished her journey as one of the top 5. Harnaaz Sandhu of India won the Miss Universe title, with Miss Paraguay Nadia Ferreira as first runner-up and Miss South Africa Lalela Mswane as second runner-up. JB
