Finaly, Kapuso actress Marian Rivera posted a photo of her first-born, Maria Letizia, on Instagram today.
The actress thanked her husband, Dingdong Dantes, for being by her side throughout her pregnancy and 18-hour labor.
“41 weeks akong naghintay, 18 hours na nag-labor. Sa mga oras na iyon, hindi ko inaasahang makakaya ko ang lahat. Pero dahil andiyan ka sa tabi ko, sa iyo ako kumuha ng lakas. Salamat mahal ko.” (“I waited for 41 days and labored for 18 hours. That time, I thought I can’t make it. But because you were there by my side, you are my source of strength. Thank you my love.”)
“At sa araw nga na iyon ng Nov 23, tuluyan na talaga tayong naging kumpleto; kasama ng Panginoon, ikaw, ako, at siya – si Maria Letizia. Ngayon, masasabi ko na tayo’y isa nang ganap na pamilya, at ako’y isa nang ganap na ina. Napakasarap ng biyayang ito.” (And on that day, November 23, we became complete; with the Lord, you, me, and her – Maria Letizia. Now, I can say that we’re a complete family, and I’m now a mother. What a wonderful blessing.)
Meanwhile, the proud Daddy also shared on his Instagram his favorite photo of their unica hija. “I may have a thousand photos of you already, but this one taken 8 days ago is definitely in my top 10. #MariaLetizia”
Minutes after the couple uploaded the photos, netizens went gaga over Maria Leticia’s photo. As of this writing, Baby Zia’s photo on her mom’s account has 180k likes, while on her dad’s account has 112k likes. Can’t blame them… Baby Zia is so cute!!!
