Soon-to-be parents Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera


Yes. It’s confirmed. Kapuso primetime royal couple Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera-Dantes announced that they are having a baby!

The happily married couple made the exciting announcement in an exclusive interview with Jessica Soho aired Monday on “24 Oras”.

“Gusto lang naming sabihin na nagbunga ang aming pagmamahalan, at nabiyayaan kami ng Panginoon ng isa sa pinakamagandang regalo na pupuwedeng ibigay and that’s the gift of life,” the actor said.

In previous interviews after their fairytale wedding, the actress admitted being ready to having a baby.

“Totoo talaga, gusto namin (na magka-baby) na, pero hindi mo naman mapa-plano yan. As soon as possible sana. Gustong gusto na din niya [Dingdong],” the actress said.

Dantes also confirmed the good news in a post on his official Instagram account.

“We are extremely grateful because the greatest gift called life has already been bestowed upon us by God. In behalf of my wife, and our coming baby, we thank all those who prayed for, and with is. Faith really has its way of fulfilling lifelong dreams,” the actor wrote.

Dingdong and Marian tied the knot last December 30 at Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral in Cubao, Quezon City.
