MANILA, Philippines – As a mother, Sunshine Cruz remains optimistic that her estranged husband Cesar Montano will have a better relationship with their three daughters (Angelina, Samantha, and Franchesca).

Cesar reunited with their three daughters last July 11.

Sunshine wrote in a Facebook post, which has been deleted, that the reunion of Cesar and their three girls, was meant to happen because it was all part of God’s plan.

She was having an advanced birthday celebration with her daughters and other family and friends at Resorts World Manila and coincidentally, Montano, his brother, and his friends were in the same place; just one or two restaurants away from where they were.

She added that her daughters got tense and excited at the same time when they learned that their father was there as well.

She said that her best friend who accompanied the girls, described the reunion as an emotional one.

However, the unexpected reunion wasn’t positively received by Cesar’s family and his sister, Maria Mercedes “Ched” Manhilut-Cantu even expressed her doubt with what happened and emphasized that everything her brother went through couldn’t be simply erased by the reunion.

Sunshine said in an interview during the FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women Victory Party held Tuesday, July 26, at the Valkyrie in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City, that although Cesar’s family reacted negatively over what happened, she knew that she did the right thing.

Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) quoted her as saying: “They weren’t happy with what happened, unfortunately, so the kids got hurt. Ako, ang alam ko (As far as I know), it was a good thing. What I did was good.”

She added that what’s important is that she and their daughters tried because they felt it was God’s move.

As for now, Sunshine said maybe they still need to wait for the right time.

Sunshine and Cesar separated in 2013 and the former filed an annulment of their marriage in 2014. Their three daughters are all in Sunshine’s custody.
