1. Sunshine Cruz on daughters' reunion with dad Cesar Montano: It's "meant to happen"
For the first time in a long time, Sunshine Cruz's daughters were reunited with their father, estranged husband Cesar Montano, who was so thrilled to see the girls he immediately shared their group photo on his Instagram account. "All glory to God for my 3 beautiful daughters!" he wrote as caption. Sunshine, on the other hand, explained how the surprise meet-up happened. She and her family and friends were having a pre-birthday celebration at Resorts World, and Cesar and his friends happened to be two restaurants away. "I believe that it was meant to happen. Same time and same place pa kaya alam ko si God ang kumilos," she wrote on Facebook. She added that she's happy about the reunion and hopes that it will be the start of a better relationship between her kids and their father. "I know our kids deserve a good life because they are wonderful children," she said. (pep.ph)
