A few days after giving birth to her first daughter with husband Dingdong Dantes, Actress/Host Marian Rivera grants a phone patch interview with Sunday Pinasaya, the comedy-musical show she hosts with Ai-ai delas Alas and Barbie Forteza.
When asked how she feels now that she’s a mom, Marian said, “Ay, naku, alam mo yung pakiramdam na hindi mo maipaliwanag! Kapag tinititigan ko yung anak ko na, ‘Wow, thank you, Lord, Binigyan Niyo ako ng napakasayang biyaya na walang kapantay talaga.’”
Comedy icon Ai-ai delas Alas was one of the lucky few to whom Marian sent photos of Baby Zia.
Ai-ai exclaims, “Grabe, nang makita ko siya sa picture, ang cute-cute niya! Grabe kambal [Marian], ha, parang nananalamin lang ako, ha!”

According to Ai-ai, Baby Zia seems to have inherited features from both parents.
Marian thanked everyone who prayed with them and showered them with love and support. She says, “Gusto ko rin kunin ang pagkakataon na magpasalamat sa lahat ng nagdasal para sa aming dalawa ng anak ko na maging safe kaming dalawa. Thank you kasi naging malaking tulong talaga na nakaya ko ang pagli-labor, diyos ko Lord!” she laughs.
After being in labor for 18 hours, Marian gave birth to Baby Zia normally.
