Marian Rivera opens up about motherhood in time for Mother’s Day

Ever wonder how Marian juggles multiple roles in life and still makes time to be a doting mom and wife? The Shopee brand ambassador opens up about motherhood in time for Mother’s Day.

Marian prioritizes being a mom above all else

Marian wears many hats as an A-list actress, thriving entrepreneur, and hands-on wife and mother. Despite this, she ensures that she never gets too busy with family. She still dedicates most of her time at home, bonding with her kids and taking care of the household needs. “Alam mo dapat kung kailan ka need ng mga anak mo, ng asawa mo, [You should know when your family needs you] because at the end of the day, family should always come first.” At the end of the day, being a mom is Marian’s most important role in life and her children are her number one fans. Raising her kids to be kind, responsible, and compassionate people are the biggest goal she’s striving to achieve.

Marian rises to the challenges of motherhood

Marian acknowledges the difficulties that come with being a mom, and these have been amplified even more over the pandemic. It’s been tough for her kids who are both at the age of exploration and want to understand what’s happening outside their home. The Shopee superstar shares, “We had to talk to them and explain that there are a lot of changes and limitations because of this pandemic, but still reassured them that things would get better.” With the situation easing up in the last few months, Marian and Dingdong are happy to finally be able to have their kids go out more, meet their loved ones, and travel as a family.

Marian encourages moms to make the most of Shopee’s convenience and variety

Shopee has been Marian’s go-to for her family’s needs and home budols these last few years. She admits to being an impulsive, but happy shopper, adding to her cart and checking out all sorts of items that spruce up different parts of her home. “Minsan talaga wala ka nang time na lumabas at mamili para sa sarili or sa pamilya mo kahit gustuhin mo [sometimes we don’t have time to go out and shop for ourselves or for the family even if we want to]. Shopee is very reliable and convenient because, with just a few clicks, you get to shop for anything you need and want, all in one place,” says Marian.

Celebrate Mother’s Day with Marian’s top gifts for moms
Shopee mom Marian reminds all mommies to take care of themselves because they deserve it. Marian recommends a variety of finds that all types of moms can either get for themselves or hint at as a gift from their family from this Mother’s Day Blowout, which offers up to 10% off vouchers that shoppers can use to buy fun and functional gifts before the celebration on May 8:
