How time flies! Dingdong Dantes can hardly believe that his daughter Maria Letizia is turning one on November 23. But instead of throwing a big birthday bash, the Kapuso star told PEP, "Hindi kami magpapa-party..."

Two days from now, Baby Zia Dantes will be celebrating her first birthday.

Her dad Dingdong Dantes previously said,  "Hindi kami magpapa-party sa kanya nang bongga."

He remains firm about his decision.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), the Unmarried Wife star says, "Wala kaming party. Ano lang, gusto namin simple and kasama family sa kanyang first birthday.

"Kasi feeling namin, hindi pa niya ma-appreciate sa kanyang murang edad.

"Pero we’ll see sa pangalawa or pangatlo [niyang birthday].

"Ang mahalaga, malaman niya na nandun kaming lahat sa kanyang first birthday."

DADDY DUTIES. Meanwhile, Dingdong is just "so happy about everything" in his life, particularly, fatherhood.

 "We’re happy na sa stage ng buhay naming na ito, meron na kaming growing kid.

"Looking forward kami sa kanyang milestones. Ang bilis talaga!

"We’re just so happy about everything."


Despite having TV and movie projects, the Kapuso actor is a hands-on daddy.

When asked about his favorite bonding moment with her, he replies, "Ako yung bath time namin, isa sa pinakapaborito ko.

"Magmula nang ipanganak siya hanggang sa ngayon, yun yung isa sa mga regular na ginagawa ko.

"Kapag puwede ako, ako talaga ang gumagawa nun.”

Bath time is fun time. #MariaLetizia

Does he know how to change diapers?

Dingdong quickly answers, "Oo, pinakasimple na yun. The rest mahirap na, pero yun ang isa sa pinakasimple.”

It's really all about taking delight in the simplest things like making Baby Zia laugh.

Everyday delight. #MariaLetizia

Most of all, Dingdong says that the best part is sharing such parental joys with his beloved wife Marian.

As he once said, Marian and Baby Zia "serve as a constant reminder that I have the best job in the world. #gratefulfather"
