MANILA -- Samantha Angeline, the daughter of estranged couple Sunshine Cruz and Cesar Motano, admitted that she and her sisters Angeline Isabelle and Angel Francheska have given their approval for their mother to date anew.

"Because she's already single and she's (now) okay. She could already (handle herself) and we will always support her," Samantha told "Kris TV" host Kris Aquino on the morning show's Tuesday episode.

According to Samantha, she already accepted the fact that her parents won't get back together.

"I accepted it already because my mom is having a hard time," she said.

Samantha also shared her wish for her mom. "She will stay healthy and she will always have work and she will be happy even when she gets older," she said.

Asked of the qualities they are looking for in a guy for their mom, Samantha said: "Smart and good-looking and has a good sense of humor and tall. ... maputi."

Despite her failed marriage, Cruz thanked Montano for giving her her three wonderful daughters.

"Ang isa sa mga maipagpapasalamat ko sa ex ko ay 'yung binigyan niya ako ng tatlong mababait at supportive na anak. Kasi at an early age ay naiintindihna nila ang sitwasyon. Mahal na mahal din naman nila ang tatay nila. 'Yun ang lagi kong nire-remind sa kanila, always make him feel special, lagi niyo siyang ite-text at kahit paano ay maga-I love you kayo. Kasi napakaimportante nun kapag nararamdaman ng tatay at naririnig na mahal mo sila, iba yon," Cruz said.
