Graduation And Blended Showbiz Families: Cesar-Sunshine, Pampi-Jodi

These ex-couples are setting the bar high for co-parenting

The co-parenting setup between Cesar Montano and Sunshine Cruz appears to be working well, as they were both present at their daughter’s graduation.

Cesar and Sunshine joined their child, Sam, during her graduation – much to the delight of many netizens.

“Proud parents! Congratulations @samcruzm! We love you,” Sunshine said in the caption as she shared the special moment on her Instagram account last May 13, 2023.

The former couple has been reunited many times on various occasions, alongside Cesar’s current partner Kath Angeles. 

In fact, they celebrated New Year together with their respective families which was followed by Sunshine’s message to netizens about forgiveness.

Cesar and Sunshine also attended Sam’s 18th birthday last August 2022. The ex-partners even posed for a complete family picture with their three daughters, a rare sight since their marriage ended. 

Sam is the second child of Cruz and Montano. They have two other daughters: Angelina and Chesca. Their marriage was nullified on September 18, 2018. 

Jodi and Pampi

Meanwhile, Kapamilya star Jodi Sta. Maria was beaming with pride and joy after her son with Pampi Lacson finished high school.

On Instagram, Jodi penned a lengthy message for Thirdy, expressing how happy he made her with this feat.

“I closed my eyes for a moment and suddenly a man stood where the baby I carried in my arms used to be. You have given us so many reasons to be proud of the man you have become, but the proudest moment for me is telling the whole world that you are my son,” she said. 

“Congratulations, anak! Dream big. Soar high. We will always be here cheering for you. May our good Lord continue to bless you, keep you, and make His face shine on you. You are loved, anak,” she added.

As seen in the photos she posted on May 14, 2023, Jodi celebrated the occasion with Pampi, the latter’s current partner Iwa Moto, and Thirdy’s siblings with the new couple.

On her own page, Iwa also congratulated Thirdy, saying she could not believe how fast time flew by.

May college na kami,” Iwa wrote in the caption. 

It was not new for fans to see Jodi and Iwa bonding with each other as they have forged a close friendship already. 

Iwa has repeatedly expressed in the past that she considers Thirdy also as her own.
