When actors Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera got hitched, you know genetics will be kind to their kid. And true enough, when the couple posted photos of their first child Maria Letizia (Zia) on Instagram, she broke the Internet with her looks even at just 11 days old.
Proud mom Marian first released her photo. Clothed in what seems to be hospital garb, her baby girl looks fresh, fragile, and too serene for an infant. She’s also acing the smizing game really early.
41 weeks akong nag hintay , 18 hrs na nag labor. Sa mga oras na iyon, hindi ko inaasahang makakaya ko ang lahat. Pero dahil andiyan ka sa tabi ko, sa iyo ako kumuha ng lakas. Salamat Mahal ko. @dongdantes At sa araw nga na iyon ng Nov 23, tuluyan na talaga tayong naging kumpleto; kasama ng Panginoon, ikaw, ako, at siya- si Maria Letizia. Ngayon, masasabi ko na tayo’y isa nang ganap na pamilya, at ako’y isa nang ganap na ina. Napakasarap ng biyayang ito. ❤️ #MariaLetizia
Stage dad Dingdong posted later, with baby Zia wrapped up in her personalized blanket. By now, we should know that this girl projects better than most of us in her sleep. Look at that natural pout and defined nose. #winning
I may have a thousand photos of you already, but this one taken 8 days ago is definitely in my top 10. #MariaLetizia

Netizens are quick to dote. Like every other person who sees their friend’s kids, they point out that Zia looks a lot like Marian with her eyelashes, high nose, and fair skin.
Last Nov. 23, Zia’s birthday, Dingdong teased fans with a glimpse of their baby. Since then, most were curious as to how the baby of the country’s celebrity “royal couple” would look like.
Twenty-three November, 2015: The day God decided to deliver His most precious gift. This morning, I witnessed a miracle…and during that moment, i realized that my life would never be the same again. As we welcome this new graceful chapter with open hearts, we thank everyone who prayed with us through this sweet journey. Friends, say hello to our Maria Letizia. @therealmarian
Move over, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Zia is here to snatch your social media clicks. Though to be honest, we’re just happy that more babies are gracing this world with their pure cuteness. Congrats to the couple!
