Sharing a photo on Instagram this Thursday of his newborn son on top on the seat of his favorite motorcycles, he told him: "Alright, okay, yes, maybe one you day you can ride it and even own it. But that's not what I want you to have."
This was how actor Dingdong Dantes began his loving message he wrote to mark the one month milestone of baby Ziggy, his second child with wife, Marian Rivera.
He continued: "Material things get old, expire and tear down. I would also never give that as a gift because as beautiful as it may appear, it is, after all, just a thing."
"What I want you to have and what I will continue to give you is the ability to value people and relationships.
"One day you'll hone it and make it your own unique talent and characteristic --even far better than your forefathers."
"But if you’ll seriously want to ride, I’ll make sure I am healthy enough to teach you a thing or two. That is, if your Mother would even allow it. Happy first month, son."
The photo appears to be part of a set they shot with The Stork Studio. Rivera used one of the shots from it for her post this Thursday --a cute snap of Ziggy sleeping inside a pail.
This was after she celebrated Mother's Day by sharing a photo of her, Dantes, and their eldest Zia with Ziggy.
