They have yet to talk about marriage. But Dingdong Dantes said it’s nice to know Marian Rivera announced she’s ready for it “kahit saan.”
“It’s very nice to hear Marian say ready siya kahit saan,” Dingdong said at the launch of “Biblio” book of photographs by PPL (Perry P. Lansigan) at The Establishment at The Fort.
“Ibig sabihin kampante ka sa sarili mo,” he adds.
But even if they have yet to discuss marriage, Dingdong says what’s more important is that they find time for each other, Marian’s busy schedule notwithstanding.
Besides, he adds, no one but him can really tell when he will be ready to even talk about marriage.
What about having a baby? Is he the type who will sire a child first before taking the plunge?
Dingdong again gives a tentative answer.
“Saka ko lang masasabi yon kung mangyayari na.”
But it seems he prefers marriage before fatherhood.
“Mahalaga gawin ang tamang proseso sa bagay bagay,” he declares.
Dingdong thinks that trust, love and patience make his relationship with Marian as strong as ever. He also insists that Marian “has always been secure,” feuds with Heart Evangelista and Bela Padilla notwithtstanding.
Just how does he makes her feel secure?
Dingdong refuses to give an answer.
“Sa akin na lang yon,” he replies.
Meanwhile, Kris Aquino, his co-star in the Metro Filmfest horror movie “Segunda Mano” is confident no friction will erupt between her and Marian because of the movie.
Kris said shooting “Segunda Mano” is so stress-free because she and Marian are friends.
Dingdong agreed. After all, he goes on, Kris and Marian have known each other from way back.
Dingdong also expects another stress-free project, a comeback team up with Rhian Ramos.
Come December, Dingdong is also slated to go to Mindanao for a fund-raising mission for his YesPinoy Foundation, beneficiary of the “Biblio” project. All proceeds from the sale of the book will go to “Para Paaralan” and school building projects of YesPinoy Foundation Inc. in Jolo, Sulu.
Meantime, Dingdong is putting directorial projects on hold while “I gain more experiences which help me do the job better.”
