It’s been almost two years since Cristine Reyes’ split with husband Ali Khatibi.
For the sake of their only child Amarah, the ABS-CBN actress shared that she is still in close contact with her former partner. For Cristine, she said it is a must to maintain a positive disposition in life, especially now that she is a mother.
“Siguro na-discover ko na dapat maging happy ka lagi sa buhay mo. Kasi hindi naman mawawala ang problema natin. Laging mayroon at mayroon at nasa pagdadala mo yon. Kung iiyak ka ba lagi, ikaw lang yung mahihirapan sa buhay mo. For me i-lift mo na lang yon kay Lord, bahala na si Lord, and go on with your life and magpakabuti ka na lang sa buhay mo, sa mga tao, sa surroundings mo, sa work mo. Now, I have Amarah, maging mabuting mother, and just be a good person,” she said in a report from Pilipino Star Ngayon.
On February 5, she celebrated her 31st birthday with her friends and loved ones. She noted that the people closest to her helped her get through the rough patches of her life.
“My wish, sana po matupad ang heart’s desires ko for me and Amarah. I realized dapat i-celebrate natin ang buhay natin. For me, greatest gift from God, celebrate life. Right now, I appreciate more quality time with my family and close friends,” she shared.
