Former couple Sunshine Cruz and Cesar Montano seemed to have worked out their differences. The actress shared that the father of her three daughters is now more present in their lives.
Sunshine and Cesar filed for annulment in 2014. Four years after, their marriage was nullified by a court.
The Love Thy Woman star was also granted custody of their three daughters — Angelina, Samantha and Chesca.
“This year, nagkaroon siya ng participation. Mas may participation siya sa mga bata. They are in touch. Minsan magkasama pa silang nagsisimba,” she said in a report from Pilipino Star Ngayon.
She also assured her daughters that what happened in their past does not mean that their father does not love them.
“Sabi ko naman sa mga bata, ‘Kung ano man yung nangyari noon, hindi naman ibig sabihin noon hindi na kayo mahal ng tatay ninyo. Kahit anong mangyari, tatay niyo pa rin yan,’” she said.
Sunshine admitted she used to have moments of extreme sadness as she tried to be strong for her daughters.
“There was a time na nalungkot ako nang sobra-sobra pero binigyan ko ng expiration date yung pagdadalamhati at pagiging malungkot ko kasi hindi naman pwedeng habang buhay na ganon,” she said.
“Wala naman kasing ibang sasandalan yung tatlong anak ko kung di ako lang. Kapag pinakita ko na weak ako, pang hihinaan din sila ng loob,” she explained.
Sunshine also expressed how thankful she is for her home network, ABS-CBN. She recounted that after her separation with the actor, the network immediately offered her a teleserye.
Currently, Sunshine is in a happy relationship with actress Ara Mina’s brother Macky Mathay.
