Pep.ph reports that Sunshine Cruz is dating Ismael "Macky" Mathay IV, Ara Mina's half-brother who is still married and a father of three, and Instagram posts seem to suggest it. A group photo of the three of them together at the opening of Yayoi at SM Megamall has fueled speculations even more. Last October 11, Macky's birthday, there was a flurry of posts on Instagram. In an exchange of Instagram, comments wth Ara, Macky wrote, "The Lord has given me already the desires of my heart, I could not ask for more. Never did I think such a woman existed. My blessing along with my three children. I will keep on praying though always grateful for everything." Ara Mina also posted a birthday message where part of the caption reads, "You deserve to be happy."
On the same day, Camille Fariñas Mathay, Macky's estranged wife, posted this on Instagram. "You say it best... when you say nothing at all," she wrote. "Happy I have my 3 kids to give me all that and more!" Then Sunshine, still on October 11, posted this quote on Instagram. "You don't have to justify you happiness, your dreams, or your confidence to anyone. " Pep.ph's source denies that Sunshine caused Macky and Camille's split since the two has been separated for over a year now, while Macky and Sunshine just recently started dating. Sunshine has been separated from her estranged husband Cesar Montano since 2013. Sunshine, Macky, and Camille have not made any official statements. (pep.ph)
2. Tricia Centenera opens up about moving on
Gab Valenciano's estranged wife says she tries to keep herself busy so that she doesn't think much about her failed marriage. "There are days when I go, ‘Okay, I will try.' And there are other days where I’m just, like, 'I can't believe it [what he’s done to me],'" she tells Pep.ph. Tricia admits that she misses her estranged husband Gab Valenciano, but she is positive that they'll be friends one day. "I don’t know to what degree of friendship it’ll be but, you know, I miss him definitely. He was my husband, and I’ll be crazy to not miss him. I know we will be friends one day. Because we’ve been friends for years beforehand and that’s the hardest thing for me to really let go." Tricia, however, dismisses talks of reconciliation. "I just think that I’m too hurt at the moment. And he is going through a lot... So many changes going on with him, that he just needs to figure it out for himself," she says. (pep.ph)

Doug surprised Chesca on the morning talk show Magandang Buhay by giving her an infinity ring for their eighth wedding anniversary. The two also had an impromptu renewal of vows. "As I said during our wedding (October 9, 2008), I will always place God at the center of everything...I will renew right now to keep God at no. 1, then my family and you, of course, at no. 2 because if I put God first I know everything will follow," Doug said. To which Chesca replied, "I'm still your no. 1 cheerleader and even more now that we are married, and I've seen the kind of man that you are. Before kasi, I only saw you as my boyfriend who has become my husband. Now I see the kind of husband and father that you are and how loving and responsible you are and leading your family to love and to know the Lord. Because of that, because of your dedication and love to God, it's easy for me to submit because I trust you, because you have love for God and I love you so much." The couple have three kids, daughters Kendra and Scarlett, and son Gavin, who also joined them in the show. Happy anniversary, Chesca and Doug! (abs-cbn.com)ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
