Kapuso Primetime King Dingdong Dantes, on Thursday, May 5, described his wife Marian Rivera as a “very very selfless” person.
The actor, during the press conference for their upcoming sitcom Jose and Maria’s Bonggang Villa witnessed the selflessness of the actress.
“Well, siguro sa isang salita, ‘selfless,’ he said. “I think iyon ang nasaksihan ko all throughout these years especially noong nagkaroon na kami nang mga anak.”
Dantes added, “Talagang naging very very selfless. So I think isang unique trait talaga ng mga nanay ‘yan.”
The couple worked on a documentary titled MISS U: A Journey to The Promised Land, specifically to pay tribute to all women this coming Mother’s Day. The actor then realized that being compassionate is very common among mothers.
“Na-realize ko siya noong ginawa namin iyong documentary. Kasi sinamahan ko siya sa journey niya ngayon pati na rin ang kanyang sariling mother. At iyon ang common denominator nilang dalawa, at ang lahat ng nanay na nakita ko while doing that documentary, while going through that journey with them. So it’s really their selflessness,” he explained.
Rivera shows her motherly-love
The Kapuso Primetime Queen, during the presscon, was asked to share what she fears the most for her children.
She responded that instead of “fear” she would like to use the word “challenge”.
“Kinatatakutan? Parang ayokong i-entertain ang word na ‘kinatatakutan.’ Siguro yung challenge na lang. Looking forward ako na kung ano yung challenges na mangyayari sa mga anak ko at gagawin ko sa kanila bilang nanay, gagawin ko nang buong-buo at hinding-hindi ko sila pababayaan,” answered Rivera
Their kids, Zia, 6, and Ziggy, 2, might have a chance to appear in their parents’ sitcom.
Rivera cracked, “P’wede naman. Dumadaan-daan lang.”
Dantes added, “Wala namang imposible. I mean hindi namin napag-uusapan. Thank you for bringing that up. Dahil siguro diyan, mapag-uusapan namin iyon.”
Jose and Maria’s Bonggang Villa is a project co-produced by the couple together with GMA Network and APT Entertainment. It is directed by John “Sweet” Lapus.
Also present in the presscon were cast members Benjie Paras, Pekto, Shamaine Buencamino, Pinky Amador, among others.
It will premiere on Saturday, May 14, at 7:15 p.m.
