Marian Rivera couldn't help but feel proud of her eldest daughter Zia Dantes.
On Tuesday, January 4, 2021, the 37-year-old celebrity mom uploaded a video of her panganay doing a cover performance of the song "Dance Monkey" by Australian singer/songwriter Toni Watson, known professionally as Tones and I.
The video was first posted on her Instagram Stories before it was re-uploaded on her official Facebook page.
"Manang-mana sa akin [emoji]," the Kapuso star wrote in the caption of her post.
The short clip has garnered thousands of views in just an hour since it was posted on Facebook.
The comments section has also been filled with praises from Marian's fans.
Facebook user Thess Meriño wrote, "Cuteness overload!"
Another fan Catriona Liwaya Mon was also impressed by Zia's performance: "Awesome voice ate Z [emoji]."
Shane V. Reyes told Zia, "So adorable! [heart emoji] nice voice zia"
In an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) via Zoom last February 9, 2021, Marian said she is convinced that her daughter Zia will enter showbiz in the future.
The Kapuso Primetime Queen said, "'Day, nasa dugo niya! Umarte-arte, nagsasayaw, kumakanta. Talo ako kasi kumakanta! Boses palaka ako, yung anak ko mukhang may chance, e!"
But Marian hopes Zia finishes her studies first before she decides to venture into showbiz.
"Well, sabi ko, 'Anak, kung talagang gusto mo at nasa dugo mo, aral ka muna kasi si mama nag-aral muna kasi hindi mo alam kung anong mangyayari sa iyo sa showbiz."
