Marian Rivera reveals that her daughter Zia is fond Sarah Geronimo’s ‘Tala’ dance

She said that Sarah made the effort to give Zia a video greeting which made her 4-year-old child overjoyed.

Kapuso star Marian Rivera has revealed that her firstborn child, Zia, is a fan of Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo. She mentioned that Zia likes to dance along to Sarah’s ‘Tala’ dance.

Marian made the revelation in a virtual interview with Rose Garcia.

The 36-year-old actress said that Sarah was able to learn of Zia’s fondness of her song through a common friend who showed her a video of Zia dancing ‘Tala’.

“Sobrang gustong gusto niya ‘yung ‘Tala.’ Nagsasasayaw ng ‘Tala.’ Si Ranvel (Rufino) kasi, very close iyan kila Matteo and Sarah. Very close din iyan sa amin dahil meron silang business ni Dong. So pumupunta minsan sa bahay iyan nagmi-meeting,” she said.

“One time, sinend ni Dong kay Ranvel na nagta-Tala si ‘Zia.’ Ngayon siguro kasama ni Ranvel si Sarah, nag-video ngayon itong si Sarah. Sabi nung Sarah, ‘Hi Zia, ang galing mo mag-‘Tala.’’ Kilig na kilig ‘yung anak ko, Diyos ko,” Marian added.

She also said that Zia was overwhelmed that her idol knew her and questioned why Sarah knows that she is fond of ‘Tala’.

“Sabi niya, ‘Why Sarah knows me? Why she knows I like ‘Tala’?’” said Marian.

Marian also revealed that she and her husband Dingdong Dantes, don’t really tell their daughter of her popularity as they still want Zia to keep her innocence.

“Typical lang na bata na kapag may nakikita, natutuwa. Very innocent pa din. Ayaw naman naming sabihin na, ‘Ay anak ganito ka, ganyan ka,’” she said.

She explained that her daughter Zia is not aware of her status in life and that many people are admiring her beauty despite her young age.

“Parang hinde, dedma siya. Kami din kasi dedma kami. Parang hindi siya aware. Parang ambata pa niya,” she said.

Marian mentioned that her daughter is aware that her parents are celebrities but Zia doesn’t really put a big deal on it as she is still too young to understand the showbiz life.

She said that back in the day when Zia would see herself in TV commercials, she would get excited and would point to herself saying, “that’s me, that’s me!”

But Marian said that now that Zia has grown a little older, she would already get shy when she would see herself on television.

“Nakita namin nahihiya na siya. Hindi na katulad ng dati. Ngayon hindi na, nahihiya na siya,” she said.

“‘Yun age niya kase, mag 5 years old na siya. Baka ganun talaga ‘yung mga bagets,” she added.

Marian Rivera is known for her roles in the series MariMar (2007-2008), Dyesebel (2008), Amaya (2011-2012), and Temptation of Wife (2012-2013). She was supposed to star in an upcoming drama called “First Yaya” but Marian decided to back out because she didn’t like the idea of having a lock-in taping. She said that she wants to put her ‘family first’ and wants to take care of children Zia and Ziggy. She is currently married to fellow Kapuso star Dingdong Dantes.

On the other hand, netizens have shared about their amusement with the news of Zia being Sarah Geronimo’s fan.
