As her second daughter with ex-husband Cesar Montano celebrated another milestone in her life this month, actress Sunshine Cruz penned a sweet birthday message to her daughter Samantha on her 18th birthday last August 24. She has two other daughters Angelina and Francheska.
On her Instagram account, Sunshine wrote,
“My Dearest Sam,
Happy 18th Birthday Sam!!
Know that I am blessed to have a daughter who stresses mommy from time to time.
“But also know, that I appreciate it when you know how to humble yourself. Sam, you always light up any room you are in and that sets you apart from the others. You are the sweetest Sam! Being your mom is a wonderful blessing I will forever be grateful for. I am very proud of you Sam. Now that you’re 18, always remember that being of legal age will not stop me from being a mom to you and your sisters. I will always be here to guide, support, and protect you. I pray that all your dreams that you are hoping for will come true. Enjoy your special day with your siblings, your Tita Kath and Dad, anak.
“I am sorry mom’s locked in for work but I promise to make it up to you. You know I will.
“I love you so much @samcruzm!”
Aside from Sunshine, Sam’s siblings also shared birthday posts for her including her sister Angelina and their half-brother Diego Loyzaga who is Cesar’s son with former partner Teresa Loyzaga. “happy legality!!! to more laughs and film binges with u,” wrote Angelina.
Diego posted his favorite photos with Sam, including their video calls, on his account. He wrote, “Happy birthday @samcruzm to the pinaka makulit sister of a lifetime. Big 18th for the big sakit sa ulo! I love you more than you know, Samantha”
