The actress shares that she and Ara Mina’s brother first communicated on Instagram.
Actress Sunshine Cruz shared during her guest appearance on the morning show Magandang Buhay how she met her new boyfriend Macky Mathay.
“Yes, I am happy now. Masaya ako at masaya ang mga anak ko para sa akin,” confirmed Sunshine, who was also with Macky’s sister, actress Ara Mina.
“Once in a while, I would open my direct message on Instagram kasi may mga online shops na gustong magpadala ng products so, hindi ko naman siya fina-follow so lumalabas siya ‘dun sa idedecline or i-aaccept as friend. So sabi sa kanya (Ara), sis, may kapatid ka bang ganito? ‘Oo, bakit?’ ‘Nagmessage sa’kin oh,’ she narrated how Macky approached her, recalling how Ara reacted when she found out about it.
Sunshine then decided to message him back. She was able to confirm that it was really Ara’s brother when Ara messaged Macky to ask if he’s messaging Sunshine.
According to Ara, she was surprised that her brother messaged Sunshine because she knows he is the shy type. She also added that her brother is a gentleman.
Via a live phone call, Sunshine got to talk to Macky, who admitted he had a crush on the actress for the longest time.
“Hindi ko akalain na mayroon pa pa lang katulad niya na babae,” he said.
“Paulit-ulit kong sinasabi sa kanya na madaling magsabi ng mahal kita pero ang ipa-promise ko na lang sa kanya ay araw-araw ko pa rin siyang liligawan,” Macky told Sunshine.
Sunshine, for her part, thanked him for all that he has done for her. “I’m just so grateful and happy na sinagot ko ‘yung message mo sa’kin kaya ngayon, masaya si Sunshine,” she said.
