Marian Rivera reveals the difference between taking care of Baby Ziggy and Ate Zia


At her very first public appearance since giving birth to Baby Ziggy, Marian shared how different it is taking care of Ziggy compared to taking care of her firstborn Zia.

According to Marian, "kung anong ginawa ko kay Zia, ganon rin kay Ziggy. 'Yon nga lang, si Ziggy mas ano siya eh siguro kasi lalaki mas malakas mag-dede. Tapos hindi iyakin. Pag nilapag mo, hindi iiyak hindi nagpapabuhat," Marian told the press at the Kultura event on Tuesday afternoon.

The Kapuso Primetime Queen also said that this time, she's learned how to manage her time between her children Zia and Ziggy and her husband Dingdong Dantes.

"Dati puro Zia lang ako eh. This time, kaya ko na i-manage unti-unti, balanse na kumbaga ngayon. Umalis ako, naranasan ko na siya eh, ma-limit na kami mag-date ni Dong, minsan may trabaho na akong tinanggap. Ngayon alam ko na," Marian said.

Marian said Zia has been helpful when it comes to taking care of her younger brother.

"Responsible siya bilang ate. Example kapag papalitan ko si Ziggy ng diaper siya talaga 'yong kumukuha ng diaper, siya 'yong nagtatapon sa basura," Marian said.

"Sabi ko sa kanya, 'anak laruin mo muna si Ziggy. Umiiyak, may gagawin ako' so gagawin niya kinakantahan niya, pumapalakpak siya kung anu-ano pinagagagawa niya," she narrated.

Marian feels happier than ever now that she has two children.

"Nakakatuwa kasi sabi ko nga, iba din pala 'yong fulfillment mo kapag may anak ka. 'Yon ngang isa kay Zia sobrang happy na ako eh nadagdagan pa so mas marami masaya, parang pangarap na binigay at pinagkaloob talaga," she said.

Sometimes Marian said seeing Ziggy and Zia sleep beside her still feels like a dream.

"Minsan sabi ko nga kay Dong kapag nasa kama kami tapos natutulog 'yong dalawang anak niya sinesend ko 'yong picture sakanya, kasi siyempre nagtatrabaho siya sabi ko parang pangarap pa rin parang hindi pa rin nagsi-sink in na nakahiga ako at may kasama akong dalawang anghel sa tabi ko parang wow," she said.
