They may be thrilled by all the spoiling their children get on social media, but Dingdong and Marian are keeping a tight rein on Ziggy and Zia.

Dingdong said in a July 2019 interview, "Kailangan mahalaga lumaki sila nang mabuti, maging mabuting tao.

"More than anything, yun ang tungkulin namin bilang mga magulang.

"Siguraduhin maging mabubuti sila."

Meanwhile, Marian said in a September 2019 interview that their studies will come first.

"Sabi naman namin, kung ano yung gusto nila, kung ano yung daloy ng dugo nila, kung ano yung naramdaman nila, susuportahan namin sila sa lahat ng gusto nila.

"Pero ang hiling lang namin ng tatay niya is magtapos sila ng pag-aaral nila."

"It's just easy for me to take shots and post everything sa social media.

"Parang it's gonna be such a shame or parang it's gonna be a sin not to share it."

Drew and Iya have two sons—their second son Leon was born in 2018—and they do regulate what they post on social media about them.

He told PEP.ph in his interview on October 8, "It's funny because they are already there, right? We're already there.

"So, it's about what content we put out and hopefully it's mostly inspirational and aspirational."
