Actress Sunshine Cruz congratulated her daughter Angelina for excelling in school despite the difficulties of distance learning amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
In an Instagram post on Tuesday, September 28, Sunshine happily shared that her eldest daughter is a top student at her school. She also qualified to be part of the Dean's List for this semester, according to the Kapamilya actress.
"Congratulations Angelina in achieving first honors and being a dean’s lister for this term!" wrote Sunshine.
"I know how focused you are with your studies. I’ve always told you girls to focus sa pag-aaral. 'Yung makapagtapos kayo ang pinakamagandang maibibigay nyong regalo kay mommy and I really appreciate your hard work. I know how challenging online classes is but you still did a great job! So proud of you Angelina! I love you!" she added.
Sunshine's announcement comes just days after Angelina celebrated her 20th birthday with family and loved ones in a Y2K-themed party.
In her message for Angelina, Sunshine said her birthday wish for her daughter is for her to reach all her dreams in life. She also vowed to always be there to support her eldest child.
"Time really does fly! My eldest turns 20 today! My Angelina, I am blessed to have you in my life. You’ve always been patient to your sisters (I’m sure Chesca and Sam will agree with this), maayos mag-isip, napakabait! Now that you are 20, my wish for you is to reach whatever dreams you have. Know that your family will always be here to support you. I am so proud of you dahil lumaki kang hindi lang panlabas na anyo ang maganda kundi pati ang iyong puso ay maganda din," she wrote.
"May God bless you more anak. You will always be my baby girl, my princess," she added.
Angelina, a recording artist, is Sunshine's daughter with her former husband, action star Cesar Montano.
