Raising three daughters on her own is no easy feat but Sunshine Cruz said she will never get tired of being a hands-on mom to Angelina, Angel, and Samantha. “I can be a spoiler but at the same time ‘pag kailangang magpaka-nanay, strict ako sa kanila and they respect me for that. And I’m grateful na sobra yung respeto at pagmamahal sa akin ng mga anak ko. Wala pa silang manliligaw. They’re still my babies. Up to now natutulog pa rin sa tabi ko. Hindi ako in denial of course I know that it will come. Darating yan,” she said.

Sunshine admitted that she is already readying herself for the time when her kids start dating. “Kung ako nga nanay ko nahirapan tanggapin nung nagka-boyfriend na ako noon at nag-iiyak sa wedding. Darating yan I know. Alam naman nila yung focus nila which is studies. Wala naman problema kung may manliligaw. Hindi naman pangit ang mga anak ko para hindi magkaroon ng mga admirers. Kasi ang deal namin is be open, sabihin mo sa akin lahat kung meron kang crush, kung merong nagkaka-crush sa ‘yo, yun ang deal namin para ma-advise-an ko siya ng tama. Kasi mahirap kung sa mga kaibigan lang. Parang kaming barkada talaga,” she shared.

Now that her eldest daughter has embarked on a musical career, Sunshine makes sure to provide close guidance and support. “Ako kasi nag-artista ako, I started in showbiz when I was 15 as well. Ang sabi ko lang sa kanya, ‘Always be professional and just be dedicated and focused pagdating sa pagkanta but don’t ever, ever forget your studies.’ Kasi honor student sa La Salle yan so gusto ko lang pangalagaan niya yun. I know she can do it. She’s doing it. She’s studying, she’s focusing on her singing but at the same time sa pag-aaral din naman. Masipag mag-aral yung bata,” she said.

Getting into showbiz also includes learning to deal with bashers which is one of Sunshine’s concerns. “Kasi minsan they still get hurt especially si Angelina, she’s a baby. She’s 15. Kaya ang sinasabi ko lang, ‘Huwag mong patulan. Andito si mommy. I’ll protect you.’ Basta block and delete lang. Sabi ko nga kahit anong buti mo, kahit anong galing mo, meron pa rin silang masasabi sa ‘yo. Eto ang showbiz sabi ko. So huwag mo patulan, huwag kang mag-reply. Be the classy one. Block and delete na lang. Pero may times na tao lang tayo, meron kang mga sundot na gaganun ka talaga. Pero I see to it na lagi namang maayos ang pagsagot ko. Tao lang,” she said.
