Dingdong Dantes Pens a Sweet Message for his 9th Wedding Anniversary With Marian Rivera

Despite their “crazy and hectic year,” Dingdong Dantes finds the time to pen a sweet for Marian Rivera to celebrate their wedding anniversary.

The king and queen of primetime TV strike us with feels once again as Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera celebrate what appears to be their 9th Wedding Anniversary! And although they both had less time for themselves and each other due to a large number of projects, the movie Rewind — Dingdong perhaps felt — was a godsend moment.

Although both were busy shooting the widely-acclaimed Metro Manila Film Festival entry Rewind, celebrity Dingdong Dantes reveals in his wedding anniversary message how he cherished the moments and the chances to reflect on and rekindle their romance. “When we started shooting #RewindMMFF, it felt like going on a date every single day, and the bonus became a beautiful outcome,” he writes.

“A Rare Privilege” For Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera

Marriage has two kinds of missions: our own and also family-oriented ones. But to be able to accomplish one of our missions with our most favorite persons in the world is a rare privilege — one that even Dingdong says “comes once in a lifetime.” “Being able to tell the story of John and Mary is a gift. I am genuinely grateful for this extraordinary experience, which will always hold a special place in my heart.”

Towards the end of his message, Dingdong Dantes thanks Marian Rivera, even calling her by her Rewind’s character name. “On our wedding anniversary, I have nothing but gratitude to you, my Mary, for being the best mom, wife, friend, and leading lady anyone could ask for.”

We’re just gushing at his sweet message! Marian responds with her own sweet message and string of photos, which she embeds the song Kahit Maputi Na Ang Buhok Ko by Joseph Vincent on the slideshow. “Siyam na taon ng pagmamahal, tawanan, at walang katapusang pasasalamat. Happy Anniversary mahal, ikaw ang aking walang hanggang biyaya. ♥️🙏🏻☝🏻” (For the full experience, use Instagram on mobile!)

Sometimes, we need to rewind to appreciate the present!

Their movie Rewind is quite the nostalgia trip for the many who have witnessed Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera’s love story. From the many times working together and now as husband and wife, their chemistry has not faded, and even when they have their kids Zia, who recently celebrated her 8th birthday, and Sixto whom Marian once revealed on her Facebook saying that he was her “lookalike.”

But if there’s one thing we can learn from Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera’s collaboration for Rewind, it’s that sometimes — going back to where things started can rekindle the love we have for our partners.
