Chesca Montano, the youngest daughter of actress Sunshine Cruz, is celebrating her 16th birthday this Wednesday, December 1.
Sunshine took to Instagram to share her birthday message for Chesca, her daughter with action star Cesar Montano.
"Greeting in advance because I have early call tomorrow. Happy 16th Birthday (December 1) to my bunso Chesca!" wrote the actress, who is currently in a locked in taping for a project.
"You are a smart, talented, and beautiful young lady. I’ve always believed you will make good choices in life. I am here for you always! I will guide you, protect and support you in every possible way. I love you, Chesca."
"Let’s celebrate your 16th when mom gets back home from my lock in taping," she added.
Responding to her post, Chesca wrote: "Thank you mommy! I love and miss you." Aside from her mother, Chesca also received a touching birthday greeting from her sister, Star Magic talent and Squad Plus member Sam Cruz, on Instagram. Sharing throwback photos and clips of themselves as kids, Sam wrote: "Happiest sweet 16th to my forever singing & dancing partner. I love you."
Chesca and Sam are two of Sunshine's children with Cesar. The other is Angeline Cruz, who also joined showbiz in 2017 as a recording artist.
The sisters are under Sunshine’s custody, following the actress' separation from Cesar and the subsequent annulment of their marriage.
Previously, Sunshine expressed how proud she is of her children, including Chesca whom she praised for being a consistent top student in her school.
"I don't know what I have done to deserve such wonderful children. I am blessed and will always be proud of these three," she said. "Galingan niyo mga anak. Mahal ko kayo!"
