Last November 10, 2022, Marian gave her Instagram followers a sneak peek of the interiors of their new home. On Sunday, November 20, 2022, Dingdong took to Instagram to share a photo of their new house's rear facade.
In the photos, Dingdong is seen taking a dip in their backyard pool. Marian can also be seen in the background petting their golden retriever. Based on the photo, the couple's dream home is three stories high!
In the caption of his post, Dingdong expressed how excited he is to make new memories with his family—including their children Zia and Sixto—in their forever home.
He wrote, "The things we cherish most often do not come easy. A house is no different. We work hard to build it—founded on all the learnings and sacrifices for us to achieve it.
"Soon to be 'painted' with the memories we will be creating, and love that we will sharing within, possibly for generations to come.
"What is worth keeping deserves only the things we trust. Subukan ang subok na."
Dingdong posted the same photo on his official Facebook page, but with a different caption. In the post, the 42-year-old Kapuso Primetime King revealed that it took him two decades to build his dream house.
"Ang tahanan ng aking pamilya. Naitayo ng ilang ilang taon, pero dalawang dekadang pinagsikapan," he wrote. "Pagkakaingatan, ipalalaganap ang pagmamahalan, at ipapamana ang mabubuting ala-ala. Huwag ipaubaya ang pangarap sa iba. Subukan ang subok na."
Dingdong also shared a photo of Zia enjoying their new pool on his Instagram account. He wrote, "Always the first one in…and the last one out. #MariaLetizia."
For his last Instagram post, Dingdong said their new home was a dream come true!
He uploaded their family photo with the caption: "Dreams do come true, even at forty-two. Never give up."
The Dantes family moved from Quezon City to Makati in 2015, but they started building their family home sometime in 2019. We're so happy for you, Dingdong and Marian!
