Sam Cruz, the second daughter of actress Sunshine Cruz, turned 16 yesterday, August 24, 2020.
Sunshine's birthday message to Sam on Instagram reads: "Time flies! Know that I am always here for you and I am very proud of you. I love you so much, anak!"
Sam replied, "Aww thank you, mommy! Love u sooo so much! [red heart emoji]"
She had an advanced birthday celebration on Sunday, August 23—a small but happy gathering with her mom, sisters Angelina and Chesca, and Sunshine's boyfriend Macky Mathay.
It was a "Euphoria-themed" dinner party inspired by the original HBO series, Euphoria.
In his birthday message, Macky calls Sam a "blessing" and "one of six angels." He writes, "I know that you know how much you mean to me. We [red heart emoji] you!"
The "angels" Macky is referring to are his three children—Ro, Cole, and Charlie—and Sunshine's three daughters.
Older sister Angelina's birthday message to Sam reads: "Know that I love you and will always be here for you, you know the rest [heart emoji]"
Sam and Angelina are both recording artists under Universal Records. Early in July, Sam showed her fans a teaser to her own music.
