SUNSHINE CRUZ and Teresa Loyzaga are glad to see that their children are doing their best to maintain their closeness amid the pandemic.
For those who do not know, Sunshine and Teresa have something in common. Their children have the same father, Cesar Montano. Sunshine is the mother of three teen daughters — Angelina (18), Samantha (16), and Chesca (14) — while Teresa is the mother of actor Diego Loyzaga (25).
Recently, Diego posted a photo of him on Instagram bonding with his half-sisters on a beach trip.
Teresa reposted this on her own Instagram page, writing: “Where did time go? You are all grown up! Take it slow. Don’t grow too fast! Look after each other. Love each other.”
She also tagged Sunshine on her post and gushed that they must have “done something good” to have had raised children who remain close, despite not living together.
It prompted a reply from Cruz, who wrote: “We are truly blessed to have them in our lives, Tong!”
She added: “Mahal ng mga bata ang Kuya Diego nila. Masaya sila to spend time with him. Let’s plan something soon. Sama na tayo next time!”
In an interview in 2019, both Angelina and Samantha opened up about their relationship with their older half-brother, saying that they often eat out and watch movies together. They also have plans to make song covers, given how all of them love music.
Cruz and Loyzaga themselves are also close, although they only got re-acquainted with each other around 2015. This was after they decided to make things work between them for their kids, after consistently running into each other at a restaurant in Quezon City.
Sunshine and Montano married in 2000, although this was eventually annulled in September 2018.
Sunshine is currently in a relationship with businessman Macky Mathay.
