GMA-7 actor Dingdong Dantes shared a heartwarming message on Instagram in celebration of daughter Baby Zia's 2nd birthday.
Baby Zia officially turned two last Thursday, November 23.
On Friday, November 24, the 37-year-old Kapuso dad posted his photo with Baby Zia and wrote an affirmation of his unwavering love and support for his daughter in his caption.
Dingdong's caption reads: "As a father, there is no guarantee of until when I could hold her still like this—as if everything ahead depends solely on my shoulders. It is such a noble feeling.
"The past two years with her have been the best years of my life and I can’t wait to see how she’ll blossom into that fine woman she’s meant to become.
"For now, we, her parents, are happily preparing her for that jungle out there—it will only be a matter of time.
"Tomorrow marks a new chapter in her hyper-toddler life and there is no time to waste.
"So, back to completing those puzzles, reading books, and singing her favorite Moana theme song 'How far I’ll go?'
"But wait, not yet. Not too fast, our #MariaLetizia. by @marianrivera"
Meanwhile, Marian also dedicated a simple yet sweet message for her unica hija on her Instagram account.
She wrote, "Feliz cumpleaños mi bebé! Te quiero muchò. #MariaLetizia"
Baby Zia had a simple birthday dinner with her parents' closest friends and family members at Tomatito in Bonifacio Global City.
In a previous interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Marian said she wanted Baby Zia to have a simple party which she'll enjoy.
Marian said, "Parang hindi party, basta may nakita kaming events place ni Dong para siya mag-enjoy.
"Gusto namin, yung siya ang mag-eenjoy talaga, as in playground siya."
Happy birthday, Baby Zia!
