It looks like the 4-year-old daughter of Kapuso celebrity couple Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes, Zia Dantes is very serious in learning how to play drums.
On Instagram, an account (@dyz_lily) dedicated to DongYanatics, a term for the biggest group of supporters of the Philippines’ phenomenal loveteam on and offscreen Marian and Dingdong recently reposted videos of the couple’s first child while playing drums with a determination on her face.
Aside from her beauty, Zia is also a multi-talented toddler as she can do many things like singing, dancing, and even modeling.
Recently, this adorable little girl was introduced as the newest endorser of the homegrown retail brand Bench. She was chosen as the brand muse of “Babylicious” fragrance from their Baby Bench line.
Meanwhile, here are other videos of Zia as she showcased her talent in singing when she did her own version of Disney princesses movie themes: “That’s How You Know” of Enchanted, “Almost There” of Princess and the Frog, and her well-applauded rendition of Frozen’s “Let It Go” during the celebration of her 4th birthday last November 2019.
It also appears like Zia inherited the skills of her famous parents in dancing as she has shown remarkable skills on the dance floor as early as when she was two years old.
Many netizens fell inlove with her oozing cuteness as she can instantly pull off any character—from a cute freaky little clown and a little Joker to Batgirl, Marilyn Monroe, Baby Snow White, and Princess and Hawaiian costumes, among many others.
Last year, a short video clip of Marian and Dingdong’s daughter as she showed some impressive moves in Taekwondo made rounds online. But what made the netizens admire her more is that even at her young age, Zia already displayed an eagerness to learn and she diligently followed her trainer’s instructions.
Zia’s 35-year-old celebrity mom, Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera previously shared in an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) that one of her rules in raising Zia is to let her do and explore things on her own.
“My rule is to let her do and explore things. I don’t stop her. You can relate to this, fellow mommies; the more na inaawat mo sila, the more na gusto nilang gawin yun. So, hindi ko siya inaawat. If medyo delikado, may aksidente, wina-warningan ko siya. And siya bahala para pumili ng desisyon. Halimbawa, gusto niya umakyat sa stairs. I tell her, ‘Go, pero pag nahulog ka, puwede kang magkasugat.’Alam mo, sa sarili lang niya, alam na niya at hindi na siya aakyat.”
