‘The Heiress’ actress Sunshine Cruz reveals why she waited for three years before getting into another relationship.
After a long separation and eventual marriage annulment with Cesar Montano, Sunshine Cruz said she did not want to get into another relationship right away. “It was hard. It took me three years. Ang dami rin namang mga pumorma. Pero talagang hindi pa tamang panahon eh. And I wasn’t looking for Macky (Mathay). Hindi ko hinanap, dumating na lang yan. Kaya ngayon ang ina-advise ko sa mga friends ko, don’t look for love. Darating yan ng di mo inaasahan,” she shared during The Heiress Big Reveal event held earlier this month.
Sunshine said that she decided to focus on getting her life back on track after becoming a single parent. “Ako after three years, I was okay, with my kids, meron akong serye, nag-iipon ako ng pera. Yun lang ang ginagawa. Biglang dumating yan ng hindi ko inaasahan. And hindi ko naman akalain na pag nakita ko ng personal titibok ang puso ko,” she said.
When she met her good friend Ara Mina’s half-brother Macky Mathay, Sunshine said she was not interested in the good-looking businessman. “One month kaming nag-uusap muna over the phone. Hindi ko siya nakikita. It took a month because I wasn’t ready. Pinagalitan ako ni Ara Mina. Sabi niya, ‘Sis if you’re like that, baka tumanda kang mag-isa.’ Kasi may tattoo si Macky eh. May tattoo mestizo, hindi ko type yun. Ayoko ng may tattoo, ayoko ng tisoy. Hindi ko type. Sabi ni Ara, ‘Ang dami mong daliri. Bilangin mo kung alin ang kapintasan. Bilangin mo rin kung ano yung kagandahan ng kalooban. Hindi mo pa nga nakikilala jinu-judge mo na,’” she recalled.
The Heiress actress said that Macky proved himself to her. “After a month, nagkita kami and ay iba. Ang buhok buhok pa niya nun, ngayon wala na siyang buhok di ba. Pero kahit ganun yung itsura niya, iba agad yung naramdaman ko for him. Sobrang consistent niya since the first time na pumorma siya sa akin. Hindi nagbabago and nag-e-exert talaga ng effort kahit from Greenhills siya ako sa Paranaque, pumupunta talaga dun kahit traffic para lang makita ako kahit sandali. Pag may sakit ako, aalagaan ako kahit ang layo niya. Minsan magpapaalam sa trabaho para lang samahan ako. Ganun siya,” she shared. The couple recently celebrated their third anniversary as a couple.
