Former Miss Earth Philippines Sandra Seifert shared her son’s photo with Cesar Montano after years of speculation the actor got her pregnant in 2015.
“Love Actually,” Sandra said, showing a photo of Cesar giving her five-year-old son named Corinth Ian a kiss on the cheek.
In 2015, Cesar denied rumors of getting Sandra Seifert pregnant. Both parties had neither confirmed nor denied their relationship.
In a PEP interview last July, Sandra opened up on being a single parent but did not reveal any details concerning the child’s father’s identity.
Sandra was crowned as Miss Earth Philippines in 2009. At the time, she also admitted her fears of being judged by people because of “getting pregnant before marriage.”
“I dreaded the judgment of others — admittedly, it was a tough period — especially because a lot of young women looked up to me as a source of inspiration. I didn’t want to disappoint them, but I also didn’t want them to think what I did was okay,” she said.
In an Instagram post, Sandra thanked her mom for helping her raise her son.

She wrote: “Personally, I don’t really know what it is like to raise a child with a partner by my side… but what I do know, is what it is like to raise a child with God. He has gifted me a mother who is selfless and strong enough to lend a helping hand to another mother.”
Sandra Seifert now runs her own clothing shop Suravilla and vegan bakeshop Bakehaus.
Meanwhile, Cesar Manhilot, better known by his screen name Cesar Montano is a Filipino actor, film producer, and film director.
In 2016, Montano ran as the 2nd nominee of the Aangat Tayo party-list in the 2016 national elections but subsequently lost. In the same year, he was appointed by Tourism Secretary Wanda Corazon Teo as the Chief Operation Officer of the Tourism Promotions Board.
Montano married Sunshine Cruz on September 14, 2000, at a Christian wedding. They have three daughters, Angeline Isabelle, Samantha Angeline, and Angel Francheska. He filed for an annulment of marriage with Cruz, which was finally granted on August 26, 2013.
