- Sunshine Cruz made headlines when she was seen spotted with Ara Mina's half-brother Macky Mathay
- Cesar Montano commented that he is happy for his estranged wife and hoped that she will be given a chance to become truly happy in her new relationship
- Macky is still legally married to his wife, Camille Fariñas, despite rumors that they have broken up a month ago
The entertainment press is having a field day with Sunshine Cruz's alleged romance with Quezon City councilor Macky Mathay, who happens to be the half-brother of her close friend Ara Mina.
The two have been spotted holding hands in Bonifacio Global City over the weekend, which led to speculations that they have been dating.
An anonymous source confirmed that the two are indeed together, but the Kapamilya actress has yet to confirm the real status of her current relationship.
As with someone who has moved on from a publicized breakup, the press wanted to know what her former husband thought of her newfound romance.
Sunshine had been married to actor/director Cesar Montano for thirteen years but asked for an annulment after she revealed that a third party has been involved in their relationship. Krista Miller, the alleged mistress of Cesar back then, was not the only reason of their separation but sexual abuse on Sunshine's part.
Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP.ph) was able to get the comment of the 'FPJ's Ang Probinsyano' actor regarding Sunshine's rumored love affair.
His reply was short but meaningful: first, he said that he was relieved to hear the news. He then continued his statement that Sunshine will be able to find true happiness with Macky. He ended his message by sending her 'his very best wishes'.
The former couple have three children together, just like Macky has with Camille Fariñas.
Camille is the daughter of Ilocos Sur representative Rudy Fariñas and serves as his Chief-of-Staff.
