  • Theirs is a family marred by conflicts in the past, but recently, Cesar Montano appears to be mending his ties with his children from his two previous relationships.

    In an Instagram post, Diego Loyzaga shared some snaps from a bonding moment he spent with Cesar and his three half-sisters, Angelina, Samantha, Chesca.

    On a rare occasion, all got together to spend time playing various sports like badminton and basketball. "Fun fun fun family day w[ith] Maestro and the twins," Diego wrote in his caption referring to Cesar and his sisters.

    Diego is Cesar's son with Teresa Loyzaga, while Angelina, Samantha, Chesca are the action star's daughters with his ex-wife Sunshine Cruz. Cesar and Sunshine were annulled in 2018 after a 4-year legal battle. (Read more here)

    Despite their bitter past with Cesar, Teresa and Sunshine only have kind words to say seeing their children bond with their father now.

    "Finally all five of you! More of this please," Sunshine writes in the comment section.

    Posting a couple of recent photos with his dad and a couple of old photos when he was still a baby being carried by Cesar, Diego says, "7 years is a long time for a son not to see his father. After seven years, after mistakes, God made a way to bring us together again."

    The 26-year-old actor also extended his apologies to Cesar. "I apologise for the impulsiveness of my youth. If we could take back the words and the distance and the time wasted, I would," he said.

    It could be remembered that it was last 2017 when Diego publicized his spat with Cesar when the former did not like that his father accused him of being a drug addict. (Read this Pep.ph article for more context)

    Moving past the arguments, many netizens are glad to see that the celebrity family is working on having a harmonious relationship and that Cesar, Teresa, and Sunshine are promoting positive co-parenting for the sake of their children.


    Positive co-parenting tips for separated couples

    No one wants or plans to have a broken family, but when it unexpectedly happens, couples maintain a united front to raise their kids.

    Although not ideal and definitely challenging, co-parenting setup can work if ex-partners intentionally prioritize their children's welfare. Here are some tips to promote positive co-parenting lifted from a 2018 Smart Parenting article. (Read the full article here)

    Both parents should be involved in all aspects of the child's life

    The financial aspect is just one of many things co-parents should consider. Both parents should know what's going on in school and with their child's friendships, and in every aspect of their child's life. It is why clear and open communication is vital in co-parenting.

    Holidays should be shared equally

    It's also important to give your child the opportunity to spend each Holidays with each parent, as opposed to Christmas always at Mom's and summer vacations always at Dad's. The goal here is to minimize big changes and let kids adjust gradually with a new setup.

    Time the child spends in each home should be equal

    Your child should spend an equal amount of residential time in both homes to build an emotional and loving connection.
