Even female celebrities are awed by Marian Rivera’s jaw-dropping sexy figure.
The bikini photo posted by Marian last February generated almost 3,500 comments, some of which were posted by Megastar Sharon Cuneta, Miss World 2013 Megan Young, and ABS-CBN actress Pokwang.
How did this 33-year-old mom of a two-year-old toddler do it?
One of the actress’ recent Instagram Stories showed her workout session with husband Dingdong Dantes.
Dingdong could not be any happier than to share his wife’s newfound passion for fitness.
Was he the one who motivated his wife to get on board the fitness wagon?
“Di ko masasabi na baka ako, pero di ako nagkukulang sa pangungulit sa kanya,” he said modestly.
He added, “Whatever motivation niya, it’s working.”
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) interviewed Dingdong at the rehearsals for the upcoming Sikat Ka, Kapuso!, an event of GMA Pinoy TV that will happen in New Jersey, U.S.A., on April 7 and Toronto, Canada, on April 8.
Dingdong revealed he himself was surprised by Marian's sudden interest in working out.
“Kasi dati ayaw na ayaw niya, 'tapos ngayon, sinasamahan na niya ako.
"Nakakatuwa dahil in a way, medyo na-engganyo ko siya sa gano’ng lifestyle.”
According to Dingdong, he and Marian are into it for health and stamina.
“Ang usapan namin, it’s not about looking good, it’s about feeling strong and healthy.
"Kailangan natin 'yon sa pang-araw-araw na ginagawa namin.
“Siya sa pag-alaga ng baby, hindi madali yung ginagawa niya."
And as a working mom, the loving husband said his wife needs to be fit and healthy to do her job well.
“Sa Sunday Pinasaya, sumasayaw siya every week, so mahalaga yung physical strength.”
The couple have a daughter named Zia.
