So what was his gift?
Marian Rivera initially said "basta," but eventually, she revealed during the renewal of her contract with an endorsement that Dingdong gave her a flower shop.
"Basta may niregalo siya. Actually, sabi niya nga, 'O, mahal ha, wala akong regalo sa 'yong bulaklak. Kasi may flower shop ka na 'tapos bibigyan kita ng bulaklak, ayoko.
"At saka ibinigay na niya ang pinakamagandang bulaklak na mari-receive ko."
And what's the pinakamagandang bulaklak ?
She replied, "Ibinigay niya kasi sa akin ang D.T.I. [Department of Trade and Industry permit] ng Flora Vida, ibinigay niya noong Christmas."
Flora Vida is the name of her shop.
Despite his hectic taping schedule for Alyas Robinhood, Dingdong got to celebrate Valentine's Day with Marian and Baby Zia in their favorite out-of-town getaway.
The actress related, "Pumunta kami ng asawa ko sa Tagaytay kasama si Zia.
"Kumain lang kami kay Aling Sonya," referring to Sonya's Garden, which was also where Baby Zia celebrated her birthday.
SERIES. Marian is set to make a primetime comeback soon, and considers herself lucky because her taping schedule has a "cut-off."
She remarked, “Mabait naman kasi ang GMA.”
In her previous interviews, she mentioned that Baby Zia can't sleep without her mom.
What will be the scenario when she starts taping?
The Kapuso star quipped, "Hihintayin niya ko. Every other day, puyat siya."
Does she till breastfeed Baby Zia who is now one year old and three months?
"Ngayon, heto, punung-puno ito. Pag-uwi ko, magla-latch pa rin siya sa akin.
"At saka iba na rin siyang mag-latch kasi, malaki na. Kung makahigop, parang buong kaluluwa ko na ang hinihigop niya.
"Actually, isa rin siguro yun sa dahilan kung bakit ako payat, kasi, nagpapa-breastfeed pa rin ako hanggang ngayon."
