Juday explains 'double dates' with Sarah, Matteo
Sarah Geronimo and Matteo Guidicelli
MANILA – Judy Ann Santos finally broke her silence about the recent “double dates” which she and her husband Ryan Agoncillo had with Matteo Guidicelli and Sarah Geronimo.
Guidicelli and Geronimo have been romantically linked since last year when the actor joined the singer-actress on her US concert series in June.
While the two have yet to open up about the real score between them, Guidicelli recently said in an interview that Geronimo is one of the reasons why he is happy.
Speaking to ABS-CBN News on Thursday, Santos said it just so happened that her husband and Guidicelli are both training for a triathlon.
“Kasi Ryan and Matteo are training for a triathlon. Si Sarah naman, kami naman nagte-text din kami. So nagkakataon lang. Masaya lang. Siguro hindi siya magkakaroon ng pangalawang pagkakataon kung hindi naging masaya 'yung first na labas namin,” she said.
Last May 18, Agoncillo posted a picture of the four of them which was taken in Alabang before a race. Geronimo said she and Guidicelli only visited the real-life couple then because the “Galema” actor was not feeling well to join the race.
Their group date was followed on Monday as evidenced by Santos’ post on Instagram. Guidicelli said they were together then because they all watched Geronimo’s movie “Maybe This Time.”
Saying they enjoy being with the two Kapamilya stars, Santos said: “Nagkataon lang. Safe naman 'yung dalawang bata with us. We are happy that the parents are trusting us with Sarah and Matteo.”
Santos considers the young singer-actress her showbiz sister after they became close while doing the 2010 movie "Hating Kapatid."
Asked what love advice she would give Geronimo, Santos said, “Alam na niya 'yun, malaki na siya, 25 na siya. She can decide on her own already. And at the same time, napakabuting bata talaga ni Sarah at napakabuting anak. [Hands down] ako sa kanya pagdating diyan.”
Santos said she just wants Geronimo to be “happy and free.”
