Some of Sunshine Dizon’s online followers raised eyebrows after pictures of her with her estranged husband Timothy Tan circulated online. They were preparing for their daughter Doreen’s seventh birthday and the actress broke her silence to set the record straight.
In a long Instagram post, she stressed that Timothy is still the father of their children and it’s still possible to raise their children in a “loving environment.”
“It is his right, duty and obligation to be there for his children no matter what the circumstances may be. I cannot put a label on our status but what I’m sure of is that by law and more importantly God’s law I am still his wife. Only time can tell and ultimately God if we are still meant to be together.
“I have read different opinions but one thing is for sure to those who say things as if marriage is nothing. You are probably not married and do not value family.
“Let me just remind you that you are not the mother of two beautiful kids still hoping and praying for our family to be complete and stay that way.”
She then said that the reason why they’re still civil to each other is that “Tim is still a good father in their eyes. He is a hands-on father. He drives them to school, helps them with school work, their playmate etc. Tim is far from perfect but at least he tries, unlike some.”
Sunshine also said, “No one will know and understand the sacrifices I make unless you’ve been in my shoes.”
“Do not be quick to judge you do not know the whole story. Family is worth fighting for. Timothy is love of my life. He will always be, but he broke my heart and I have also learned to survive.”
Sunshine decided to open up about her situation in public so other mothers in the same situation would realize that “it is possible to set aside your differences.”
“You have the power to choose to raise your children in a loving environment.”
At the end, she also gave a message that was most likely for her husband’s mistress.
“And lastly to show you, yes YOU! (and the likes of you) the family you chose to ruin, innocent beautiful kids you deliberately inflicted pain upon. YOU who was fully aware of your actions and could’ve said NO to a married man. YOU better take a good hard look because this is the family you never had and will never ever have.”
Sunshine and Timothy tied the knot in 2010 and split in 2016 when she soon found out about the latter’s “cheating.”
