Sunshine Cruz shared a loving tribute on Instagram to her longtime boyfriend Macky Mathay, who turned another year older on Sunday, October 10.
The actress posted a compilation of photos of them together, captioned with her sweet message for her partner.
"My Macky turns 42 today! Happiest birthday!" Sunshine wrote. "I am here for you! Supporting you all the way. May you be blessed with everything your heart desires. You are an amazing person and I will always be proud of you!
"Happy 42nd Birthday my Macky! I love you!"
Macky commented on the post, writing, "God knows kung gaano kita ka mahal my Sunshine. I love you so much!
"Ikaw ang pinangarap ko, dream girl ko, (pagkatapos ng pinagdaanan ko) naging miracle ko. Mahal na mahal kita Sunshine ko!" he also said.
Just last September, the longtime couple celebrated their fifth anniversary together, with Sunshine also penning a touching message for her boyfriend on social media.
"Thank you for being supportive and caring to me and the girls. Thank you for being one of my inspirations to always try to be a better version of myself. Thank you for always believing in me," she wrote in her previous post.
The actress, who has three kids with her ex-husband Cesar Montano, said she wasn't only blessed with a loving and supportive partner, but also with "three additional angels", referring to Macky's own children with his former wife Camille Farinas.
"I am truly grateful for you, Ro, Cole, and Charlie. You guys are a blessing to me, Angelina, Sam, and Chesca," she wrote. "Happy 5th Anniversary to us my Macky! I love you! We love you!
It was in October 2016 when Macky, the half-brother of actress Ara Mina, first confirmed dating Sunshine after they were spotted holding hands in public.
Previously, Macky shared that he started courting Sunshine after the actress replied to his message on Instagram. He also admitted that the Bagong Umaga star was his long-time showbiz crush.
Though they have been together for some time, Sunshine candidly stated in an interview that she is in no rush to settle down with her boyfriend.
“Kasi noong February (2019) lang naging malinis ang annulment ko,” said Sunshine, referring to the annulment of her marriage with Cesar. “And I’m enjoying my time with my children, with work, and okay naman kami sa setup namin. We see each other every other weekend.”
“Ang sa akin hanggang maaari, hindi ko muna gusto i-touch ‘yung topic na ‘yun but I know in God’s time naman, kung talagang kami, kami talaga.”
