Ara Mina's half-brother Macky Mathay and actress Sunshine Cruz are indeed a couple!
Macky confirmed the relationship in a phone interview with Pep yesterday October 29.
"Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes," Macky said. "Gusto mo sa ibang dialect pa? Yes. Oo."
Macky also revealed in the interview that their relationship began when he sent a private message to Sunshine on Instagram, and that it snowballed quite quickly into "I love you's" after they made their relationship official last September 18.
Macky said, "Sabi ko, ‘Before I finally said I love you, matagal kong pinag-isipan. Kasi since matagal ka nang hindi nagka-relationship, baka hindi ka pa handa."
Sunshine was previously married to actor Cesar Montano.
Macky continued, "''I don’t want to rush you into anything,’ sabi ko. ‘Kasi nararamdaman ko naman para sa 'yo ay makakapaghintay naman.’ Sabi ko, ‘I can wait, I can wait.’ But still, I decided to tell her that I love her, kasi mahal ko na siya, eh. Ayoko namang maging hipokrito sa sarili ko. Kasi, hindi na kami bata. So, I told her that I love her."
Macky revealed that Sunshine said "I love you" back after a week.
Rumors that they were seeing each other began when a photograph of them holding hands while walking surfaced online.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
