Are Dingdong And Marian Now Engaged?Dingdong Dantes has admitted that he definitely wants to settle down with Marian Rivera in the future but there are not definite plans yet for a wedding between the two superstars.
Speaking to members of the press at an event at Gusteau’s in Gaisano Mall in Davao City on Friday, Dantes was asked by an entertainment reporter whether he and Rivera are now engaged.
“Darating sa tamang pagkakataon,” the Kapuso “Primetime King” said, adding that he liked the fact that the reporter has been the first to ask him directly about an engagement to Rivera.
Nonetheless, it’s clear from the answers given by the actor that he and Rivera have not made any concrete plans for a wedding yet.
“If you ask me about specific plans, wala pa,” he noted.
Nonetheless, his answers also reveal that he is really looking forward to marrying his current girlfriend.
“Sabihin na lang natin na sino ba’ng hindi gustong mag-settle down, especially to someone like her? It’s something that I look forward to one of these days, sa tamang panahon,” he said.
He added that marrying Rivera is something that he needs to “work for” and “earn”.
Dantes also talked about how their careers are factoring in to the equation. He said that Marian is so busy at the moment and so in demand that settling down would need to be a decision that has been carefully weighed.
Being an in-demand talent, the actor said, should be something that is maximized.
“Ito ang mga bagay na kailangang i-savor. You have to make the most out of it,” he said.
After saying this, Dantes was asked whether this is the reason Rivera is maximizing her exposure in men’s magazines like FHM.
Dantes said that this was not intentional and was only coincidental that she had a recent feature in FHM.
The actor was clear, however, that this does not bother him. According to Dantes, he is not a strict boyfriend and he has never limited Marian in the things she wants to do.
“Gano’n talaga. Wala tayong magagawa. She’s beautiful. It’s a gift,” he said.
He also added that no matter what his girlfriend does, even if she just walks down the street, someone is bound to notice her and like her.
