MANILA -- Sunshine Cruz received a sweet birthday message from her boyfriend, businessman Macky Mathay.
The actress turned 42 last Thursday, July 18.
On Instagram, Mathay posted a photo of him with Cruz as greeted her on her special day.
He began by describing his girlfriend as "the one I never thought still existed."
"Akala ko wala nang katulad mo. Maling mali 'yung inakala ko because God made you happen. I will never forget that day, the rest is history. Every day, I would thank Him for blessing my life with you with all my heart and all that I am," he said.
Mathay went on: "You know that you are to me my greatest blessing! You inspire me to be the best man that I can ever be, never for myself but for us and the kids. Everything in my life has more meaning because of you. Happy birthday, my Sunshine! I love you!"
It was in October 2016 when Mathay, the half-brother of actress Ara Mina, confirmed his relationship with Cruz.
Early this year, Cruz celebrated the latest development in the years-long process of the annulment of her marriage with actor Cesar Montano.
Cruz has three daughters with Montano.
