Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera have decided to keep it simple and low-key when they mark baby Zia's first birthday this coming November 23. More details, here.

Many of their fans are anticipating that the adorable Baby Zia will be turning a year old with a grand party, but hands-on parents Dingdong and Marian prefer to take a different route.

Opting for a simple celebration for their only daughter, the Kapuso power couple plan to have a small family gathering.

"Hindi kami magpapa-party sa kanya nang bongga," Dingdong told the entertainment website PEP. "Pero para rito sa kanyang unang kaarawan, gusto namin, family lang ang nandoon. Yung immediate family, celebrate lang nang konti, kain. Basta magsama-sama."

"Hindi na kami makakapag-imbita ng kaibigan dahil magiging malaki talaga siya. Para sa amin, we want to keep it simple," revealed Dingdong.

And because she's still too young to remember it, the practical dad believed it'll be best to save a grand party for later. "Well siguro para sa amin, ang celebration naman para sa kanya," he continued. "Magandang siya ang maging pinakamasaya sa araw na yun. E, mukhang sa kanyang unang kaarawan, hindi pa naman talaga niya malalaman na may party para sa kanya. Although sa picture makikita niya."

It will be a simple but not a small gathering because the Dantes and Rivera clans are pretty large.

"Yung pamilya naman namin, marami na," said Dingdong. "Mahigit isang daan na. Gonzales, Dantes, pati mga Rivera."

When she grows a little older, then having a more lavish celebration could be a possiblity.

"Siguro yung medyo naglalaro na siya," he added. "May mga kaibigan na siya."

It seems like only yesterday when we celebrated baby Zia's birth, and the hands-on dad agrees.

"Ang bilis-bilis, parang kailan lang," he marveled.

Who says play school is only for the young? ????
