Marian Rivera has always wanted to have a big family: "Ito yung talagang pangarap ko, ang magkaroon ng maraming anak. Kasi, di ba, solong anak ako."


This summer, Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes will welcome another addition to their family, a baby boy.

In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the entertainment press, Marian said they are currently choosing between two names for their son.

She said, "Actually, dalawa na yung pangalan na naisip namin. Pero tinitimbang pa at humihingi pa daw siya [si Dingdong] kay Lord ng sign kung ano sa dalawa na yun.

"Pero ako, okay na ako. Ano man sa dalawa na yun, okay ako."

PEP.ph caught up with Marian during her press launch for Nido 3+ with her three-year-old daughter Zia at Rockwell Glasshouse Harlan+Holden in Makati City early today, January 17.

SECOND PREGNANCY

When asked about her diet, the 34-year-old celebrity mom said she is a lot more lenient this time around.

"Same pa rin naman, pero ngayon kasi... Medyo disiplinado kasi ako [nung nagbubuntis ako] kay Zia.

"Pag sinabing bawal yun, bawal yun. Example lang, bawal ang chips o bawal masyado ang chocolate.

"Dito talaga, tumitikim ako."

The Kapuso mom also noted that their baby boy is a lot bigger, so his kicks are a lot more intense compared to when she was pregnant with Zia.

"Hindi lang feel, minsan sobra na parang, 'Anak...' Inuusog ko na siya.

"Sabi ko nga kay Dong, 'Dad, nasa tiyan pa lang siya, times two na siya ni Zia. What more kung lumabas pa siya?'

"Nako, baka yung buhok ko naka-ganun [magulo] na.

"Pero okay lang. Sabi ko nga, priceless naman. Lalaki at lalaki din sila, at matatapos naman ang pagiging bata nila.

"So alam mo yun, yun ang mahalaga sa akin, at ito yung talagang pangarap ko, ang magkaroon ng maraming anak.

The Kapuso Prime-time Queen was already done with her 4D ultrasound scan, which showed moving 3D images of her baby.

When it comes to who their baby looks like, Marian raised the white flag and said, "E, di siyempre, outcast ulit ako. Sila-sila na lang magkakamukha.

"[Si Zia] nung lumaki, naging ako, pero nung maliit siya, kamukha siya ng tatay niya.

"Ito ngayon, si baby boy, nung pino-4D namin siya, naku, kamukha talaga ni Dong!

"Yung panga pa lang, sabi ko talaga, 'Ay, kayo na naman? Kayu-kayo na lang magkamukha?'"

She added that their baby boy seemed a lot more "camera shy" than Zia.

"Kasi si Zia nung inu-ultrasound, pino-4D namin parang gumaganun-ganun [nagpo-pose].

"Ito, [nagtatago sa ultrasound]. 'Tapos kinakausap namin, sabi ko, 'Anak, magpakita ka naman!'

"Isa lang ginawa niya. Sabi ko pilyo din! Kanino pa ba magmamana? Ako na yun!"
