Marian Rivera made her first-ever public appearance after giving birth to Baby Ziggy at the launch of her clothing collaboration with Kultura Philippines in SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City, on Tuesday, June 25.

Marian Rivera never really had problems losing her post-pregnancy weight.

Most moms deal with weight gain even after giving birth to their children.

But it only took the Kapuso actress around two months to lose the baby weight.

It can be remembered that Marian gave birth to her son, Baby Ziggy, last April 16. (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the press asked Marian how she lost the extra weight in an interview on Tuesday, June 25, at the launch of her clothing collaboration with Kultura Philippines in SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City.

This was Marian's first-ever public appearance after giving birth to her second child.

Marian said she lost the weight naturally, "Hindi ko alam pero healthy living naman din kasi ako."

The actress further noted that breastfeeding also helped her lose the weight she gained from her pregnancy.

"Siguro nakakatulong din ang breastfeeding."

Marian further revealed that she did not undergo any diet program, "Hindi puwede mag-diet kasi nagbe-breastfeeding ako."


She added, "Hindi puwede kasi kapag nagpapadede ka, nawawala yung nutrisyon so hindi pupuwede.

"So anong lalabas kung nagda-diet ako? Wawa naman yung anak ko."

In her June 27 post on Instagram, Marian urged moms to breastfeed their babies.

She wrote, "Being mom of two beautiful kids sounds overwhelming at first, but needed to put up with my positive outlook and told myself 'Kaya mo Yan!'.

"If kinaya ko, kayang kaya nyo din!

"Breastfeeding is life saving and has lots of benefits for the baby, mom, entire family and the environment too.

"Ngayon na dalawa na sila, I want to make sure I spend quality time with them not only with my bunso but with ate Zia and my husband so I started to express and build my milk stash para naman kahit wala ako I can still provide breastmilk kay ziggy.

"Kaya proud akong sabihin na Padede mom ako!


"Ano mang kapalit sa physical— all worth it.

"Mahalaga lumaki silang matalino, malusog at mapagmahal na mga anak."


Meanwhile, Marian proudly showcased her first fashion collaboration with Kultura through a mini-fashion show at the Mega Fashion Hall.

Although considered one of the country's best-dressed actresses, Marian admitted that she never really considered herself a fashionista.


"Hindi naman ako fashionista, pero dun ako sa OOTD ko na magiging komportable ako at makaka-relate ang bawat isa."

Marian described her recent project as "very me" with lots of pink and flowers.

Is she planning to take her first fashion venture to a whole new level and start her own brand.


The actress said she has other plans.

Marian narrated, "Bulaklak na lang. Yung mga fashion-fashion ek-ek, kanila na iyan.

"Ako mga bulaklak, fine. Halaman, ayan yung mga nahihiligan ko ngayon, yung mga plants talaga.

"Kasi nung buntis ako kay Ziggy, wala akong ginagawa, kailangan ko mag-rest, di ba?

"So yun ang pinagkaabalahan ko, at na-realize ko na ang sarap pala mag-alaga ng halaman."
