Marian Rivera says Baby Zia's talent fee is higher than hers.


Maria Letizia Dantes earned her first millions before turning one year old.

The adorable baby was seven months old when she and her mom Marian Rivera starred in a TV commercial for a baby bath product.

Her dad Dingdong Dantes stood on the sidelines during the shoot, and took snaps of the behind the scenes.

Asked about the baby's talent fee, Marian did not divulge. But she said it was higher than hers and even Dingdong's.

So far, the baby has had two TV commercials for the same brand.

Now where does Baby Zia's money go?

During Marian's taping for Dear Uge, she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), that every centavo is in the bank.

"Nag-open talaga ako ng account sa PNB para kay Zia lang. Lahat ng kinikita niya sa commercial, nandoon.

"Ni isang kusing, wala kaming ginagalaw na mag-asawa."

Baby Zia can start enjoying the fruits of her labor when she turns 18.

The actress continued, "Siguro paglaki niya, kapag nasa tamang edad na siya, lahat ng pinaghirapan niya, ibibigay namin sa kanya.

"Bahala siyang i-manage yun."

More than 10 brands have shown interest in making Baby Zia their endorse, but the mom said they have been carefully choosing her projects.

"Well, pinipili naman namin ang gagawin niya.

"At sinisigurado namin na maaalagaan siya at meron naman kaming oras na ibinibigay, at naiintindihan naman ng mga clients na ganito.

"Kasi bago kami mag-start ng commercial ni Zia, si Dong kasi nagpunta sa DOLE [Department of Labor and Employment], at nag-discuss ang DOLE na ito ang gagawin niyo kapag kinuha ang anak niyo, ito ang requirements, dapat, at hindi dapat.

"Aware naman kami run at yung asawa ko ang nagpunta sa DOLE para malaman namin ang rights namin bilang parents ni Zia, hindi yung wala lang."

Between Marian and Dingdong, it was the latter who entered showbiz at a young age. He appeared on a movie titled Forward March under Regal Films at the age of seven.

He was 17 when he made Iñaki Torres in T.G.I.S. famous.

But despite his commitments, Dingdong finished college.

In the case of Marian, she already earned her degree in Psychology when she joined showbiz.

Will they allow Baby Zia to enter showbiz at a young age?

"Ay, hindi! Dyusko, mag-aral muna siya."

Lastly, who's the stricter parent?

"Ako,” Marian quickly said.

"E, ako ang palaging kasama. Kapag sila ni Dingdong, hindi rin. Tinititigan ko.

"At saka usapan naming mag-asawa, ako, tinutuwid ko kung ano ang mali ng anak ko, susuportahan niya 'ko."
