Take that, Cesar Montano!

About two months after separating from her husband of almost 13 years, Sunshine Cruz has sprung a pleasant surprise on her fans by gracing the cover of FHM Philippines’ April 2013 issue — exactly 13 years after becoming its first ever Filipina cover model.

Sunshine posted images of the cover and two inside photos on her Twitter account Tuesday night, shortly after they debuted on

Sunshine’s acting career took a backseat after she married Cesar in September 2000, a union that produced three beautiful daughters. Now, at 35 years of age, she is on the comeback trail after a controversial split with her husband, whom she accused of infidelity. She will star in an upcoming ABS-CBN drama series called “Dugong Buhay”.

Sunshine, who has retained her whistlebait figure, wears a black one-piece swimwear on the cover image shot by Doc Marlon Pecjo.

“Actually nakaka-nerbiyos ito,” the magazine’s website quotes her as saying. “At first I couldn’t imagine myself doing a sexy pictorial again. But at the same time I’d like you to know that I was really excited to do this cover. Matagal din naman talaga akong nag-lie low, 13 years nga to be exact. I’m very honored you never stopped asking me back, kahit may tatlong kids na ako.”

The issue will be released on Wednesday.
