Actress Sunshine Cruz penned a sweet message for her boyfriend Macky Mathay on the occasion of their fifth anniversary as a couple.
In an Instagram post on Saturday, September 18, Sunshine thanked her boyfriend for bringing out the best in her and for always believing in her.
"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 said.
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.
To end her post, Sunshine expressed her love for her longtime partner.
"Happy 5th Anniversary to us my Macky! I love you! We love you!" she said.
For his part, Macky shared photos of the sweet surprise he prepared for Sunshine on their fifth anniversary.
It was in October 2016 when Macky, the half-brother of actress Ara Mina, first confirmed he was 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 is his long-time showbiz crush.
Though they have been together for a while, Sunshine, 44, said in an earlier interview that she isn’t rushing to tie the knot with Macky.
“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.”
