GMA-7's Prime-Time Queen Marian Rivera has been limiting her spending since she and husband Dingdong Dantes have become parents.

Marian told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), "Wala naman akong luho simula nung nabuntis at nagkaanak ako.

"Kasi kapag nagkaasawa ka, higit lalo't pag nagkaanak ka, maiiba na yung prayoridad.

"Hindi ko sinasabing huwag kang maging presentable, pero magiging presentable ka pa rin nang hindi sobrang OA sa luho.

"Wala na munang luho. Pag may anak ka, nawawala talaga yung luho, e. Ibabalik ko na lang siguro kapag medyo malaki na sila.

"Siguro para sa akin, okay na ulit magluho kapag alam mong stable na yung mga anak mo, stable na kung anong meron kayo."

She added, "Siguro nung dalaga ka parang kailangan kasi nasa showbiz ka, e."

It was helpful to her image as an endorser.

The actress continued, "Hinding-hindi ko makakalimutan, sinabi sa akin ni Ma'am Wilma Galvante, 'Ano iyang bag mo? Ano iyang suot mo?'

"Sabi niya, 'Your endorsement is paying you millions and then you're wearing stuff like that?' Sabi niyang ganun sa akin.

"Parang, 'Ha? Bakit po ma'am?' 'You have to invest,' sabi niyang ganun sa akin. Sabi ko, 'Ah, okay...'"

The 36-year-old celebrity mom of two revealed she did start investing in designer pieces following the advice of the former GMA-7 executive, but Marian made sure to buy only the things she needed without breaking the bank.

She said, "Siyempre bilang artista, kailangan... naniniwala ako na kailangan presentable ka.

"Pero hindi naman necessarily na kailangan magwaldas ka na simot na simot ang bangko mo."

Marian is known for being one of the best-dressed celebrities in the country. Before, she was often spotted wearing pieces from luxury brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Zimmerman, Burberry, Gucci, Prada, and Hermès, among many others.

Marian's PEP exclusive took place last Tuesday, February 9, 2021.

In the vlog posted by personal shopper Aimee Hashim on YouTube last February 12, 2020, Marian disclosed she has also started investing in diamonds.

Marian said, "Before mag-i-invest ka sa damit, sa bags, sa shoes, siguro ngayon, ang ini-invest ko talaga is diamonds."

She continued, "Sa ngayon... Malay mo kapag naging tatlo yung anak ko iba na naman, or kapag malalaki na sila, iba na naman so depende siguro."

Marian further revealed the coronavirus pandemic has changed her shopping habits, especially noting the spike on the household budget.

She told PEP.ph, "Parang ano, bilang nasa bahay ka, kain ka nang kain, luto ka nang luto.

"So definitely, medyo lumaki yung gastos, di ba? E, kasi di ba pag nasa labas ka, parang, 'O take-out ka na, drive-thru ka na, or mag-McDo ka or whatever.' Alam mo yun?

"Pero bilang nasa bahay ka, lalo yung anak ko maraming kine-crave, e, luto ka nang luto. Pero sabi ko nga, basta sa pagkain, ayokong tipirin yung anak ko.

"As long as healthy at kaya kong ibigay sa kanila at nandiyan yung tatay nila nagtatrabaho, ibibigay namin sa kanila.

"Pero definitely, hindi naman kami yung waldas na forever waldas-waldas kasi naniniwala pa rin ako na dapat nagtitipid pa rin.

"Kung hindi naman kailangan, bakit kailangan bilhin? Pag kailangan, bibilhin talaga. Pag hindi, huwag na muna."

She stressed, "Yung mga luho, ang dali-daling bumili niyan basta meron ka, e.

"Pero sa ngayon, lalo na may pandemya, ang daming may kakulangan, parang huwag na munang mga luho.

"Siguro more on food na lang or yung pag-aaral ng anak ko."
