Cruz shared a series of photos of her and Mathay via Instagram on Sept. 18, ranging from their first ever meeting to their first night out with friends and their first Christmas and New Year together.

Some of our memorable “firsts”.. First photo was when I first saw you personally after texting and talking over the phone for a month. I was sick then and you asked if you could accompany me for my blood work. Lunch (and crispy pata) followed with our official 3rd wheel @chefosel • 2nd photo was our first night out with my friends at Prive. We saw my now manager @arnold_vegafria who was surprised (or shocked?!😂) to see I am publicly and finally dating after being separated for more than 3 years • 3rd photo was our first event together. People thought you were there with your sister @therealaramina. • 4th photo, you had your ACL/MCL, meniscus tear surgery. I visited you and even stayed overnight to take care of you. Wanted to be there for you everyday but I had commitments and work to attend to. • 5th photo, I had my surgery. You took care of me. Sobrang in pain ako there kaya binigay mo ang katawan mo para sandalan ko. You never left my side not until I can function on my own. • 6th photo was our first movie date with our beautiful children. I am always happy when the kids are complete. Grateful they get along.❤️ 7th photo was our first Valentine together. You opted not to bring me to a fancy restaurant instead you brought me to my father’s fave steak place in San Juan. I always miss my dad. Kung nakilala ka nya alam ko magkakasundo kayo.😇 • 8th and 9th photos were our first Christmas and first New Year together.🎄 🎉 • Ang daming memorable firsts! Thank you for being so nice and supportive not just to me but the girls too. Ang bait-bait mo my Macky! Sometimes, I still wonder if I am really deserving of you. I am just really happy that I listened to Sis Hazel(@therealaramina). That I should not close my doors on you and give myself and you a chance to know each other. Look at us now!❤️ Happy 3rd my Macky! Thank you for being you! For accepting me for who I really am and for being a wonderful father figure to my girls. Know that you are appreciated.❤️ @mackymathay
Cruz also shared that her now manager Arnold Vegafria was surprised when he saw her and Mathay together for the first time with their friends at the Prive Luxury Club in Bonifacio Global City.
“We saw my now manager @arnold_vegafria who was surprised (or shocked?!) to see I am publicly and finally dating after being separated for more than 3 years,” she said.
It is known that Cruz filed a petition for the annulment of her marriage to actor Cesar Montano in 2014, a year after they parted ways. Her petition was granted by a court on Sept. 18, 2018.
In another photo, Cruz can be seen resting her head on Mathay’s shoulder as she visited him after he had his ACL/MCL and meniscus tear surgery.
“I visited you and even stayed overnight to take care of you,” she said. “Wanted to be there for you everyday but I had commitments and work to attend to.”
Another heartwarming photo showed Cruz, Mathay and their children from their previous marriages out on their first movie date.
“Ang daming (There are so many) memorable firsts! Thank you for being so nice and supportive not just to me but the girls too,” she said. “Ang bait-bait mo my Macky! Sometimes, I still wonder if I am really deserving of you.”
Cruz added she was happy she listened to actress Ara Mina, Mathay’s half sister, who advised her that she should not close her doors on Mathay and give herself and him a chance.
“Look at us now! Happy 3rd my Macky! Thank you for being you!” said Cruz. “For accepting me for who I really am and for being a wonderful father figure to my girls. Know that you are appreciated.” /ra
