After her older sister Angelina started getting into acting last year, Sunshine Cruz’s second daughter Sam Cruz decided to pave her own way in showbiz this year as part of the newly launched Squad Plus group which performs on ASAP. Sunshine said she was supportive of her daughter’s decision on one condition. “

“Ang advice ko kay Sam unang una sa lahat, okay lang naman sa akin na pumasok siya sa showbiz kasi hilig niya talaga. Mahilig kumanta yung bata and ngayon talagang nag-aaral siya para matuto rin umarte. Pero sabi ko sa kanya, ‘If it will affect your studies then kaya pa naman ni mommy na magtrabaho para sa inyo.’ Yun lang naman ang importante sa akin, I will support her 101% just as long as yung pag-aaral niya hindi maaapektuhan,” she shared.

Having joined showbiz at an early age herself, Sunshine said she just made sure to provide a lot of guidance to her second daughter with ex-husband Cesar Montano. 

“Sinasabi ko sa kanya to just be yourself. At saka important siyempre yung marunong ka makisama, marunong ka rumespeto hindi lang ng mga kapwa mo singers or artista, kundi yung mga nakakahalubilo mong staff and crew. Yun lang naman ang sinasabi ko. 

“When it comes to that I think wala naman akong problema kasi lahat ng nakakausap ko sa ABS-CBN na nakakatrabaho ni Sam, sinasabi nila sa akin na paborito daw nila si Sam kasi sobrang friendly, sobrang machika. Even yung mga marshall na nakakasalubong ko, yung marshall na nag-assist sa akin, best friend daw niya si Sam. So sabi ko nakakatuwa naman itong anak ko na I guess nakikita rin naman niya sa akin na friendly naman ako. I think yung pakikisama wala akong magiging problema sa kanya. I think it’s just that I always remind her studies first talaga,” she explained.

Sunshine admitted she looks forward to the day that she can work onscreen with her daughters. “Naku of course. It would be an honor and I’ll be very, very excited to work with my children. Kahit si Angelina nakatrabaho ko na siya sa TVC and nakakatuwa kasi nagpapaka stage mother pa ako na, ‘Anak, ganito umiyak’ eh ang bilis naman pala umiyak ng anak ko. And siyempre nakaka-proud bilang nanay na kahit hindi ko sila turuan, alam na nila yung gagawin nila. I guess it’s because napakahusay din naman na artista ng kanilang ama. Nakuha nila yun and nakikita rin naman nila sa akin yung pagtitiyaga ko at hindi ako tumitigil na matuto. Sobrang nakaka-excite and sana nga makatrabaho ko ang mga anak ko in the near future,” she said.
