Marian Rivera said she was deeply touched after her husband Dingdong Dantes opted not to run for Senator for the 2019 midterm election.

“Na-touch ako sa asawa ko na ang priority daw niya ay ‘yung pamilya namin, especially buntis ako. Gusto niya ‘palagi siyang nandiyan anytime’ na kakailanganin ko siya.

“So na-touch naman ako na between ‘yung gusto niya na mangyari para sa bansa na nandiyan din naman, mas [pinili] niya na ‘kailangan mo ako eh, kailangan nandiyan ako para sa ‘yo,'” Marian said, according to a GMA News story.

[I was touched by my husband whose priority is his family, especially now that I am pregnant. He wants to be with me anytime I need him. I was touched that between what he wants to happen in the country, he preferred me because I need him and he wants to be with me.]

Marian shared that Dingdong consulted her regarding his running for a government post to which she said she’ll support whatever he decides to do.

The actress now has a tiny baby bump, based on a Philippine Star article.

She said she wants the second baby to be a boy because she already has Zia who will be turning three next month.

“Pero kung ano ang ibigay sa akin ng Pa­nginoon, kung babae, sabi ko nga kay Dong, ‘swerte mo, all girls kami, nag-iisa kang lalaki, di ba?’ So kahit ano, okay sa akin basta normal at healthy dahil mayroon pa akong dalawang chance kasi apat ang anak na gusto ko.”

[But, whatever God gives me if it’s a girl, I said to Dong ‘you’re lucky, we’re all girls, you’re the only man, right?’ Whatever God gives, it would be okay for me provided that the baby is normal. I still have two chances because I want four children.]
