MANILA -- Sarah Geronimo feels blessed to have Matteo Guidicelli as her boyfriend.
In an interview with entertainment columnist Ogie Diaz last Thursday, Geroninmo said she is thankful to the Lord for giving her someone like Guidicelli.
“Siyempre thankful naman tayo sa Diyos dahil everything that’s happening, kumbaga na-bless ako ng ganitong klaseng relationship, ganitong klaseng karelasyon kasi mabait na tao naman si Matteo at talagang matiyaga,” she said.
The singer-actress also shared that she gets along well with Guidicelli’s family.
“Okay naman po, okay naman po lahat. Napakabait ng pamilya ni Matteo,” she said.
Geronimo admitted that she and Guidicelli are already in a romantic relationship during the thanksgiving party of “Maybe This Time,” her movie co-starring Coco Martin.
Although Guidicelli is currently in the United States, he commented on his "sweet" photos with Geronimo, which are circulating online, before he left the country.
“Let’s face it. I’m 24, she’s 25. We are young adults so she can make her own decisions and I can make my own decisions also. She deserves it. She deserves all the happiness,” he said.
Rumors romantically linking the Kapamilya stars first surfaced in 2013 when Guidicelli was reported to be the only showbiz personality seen at Geronimo's private birthday party in July.
In January this year, entertainment magazine YES!, citing sources, reported that the two are indeed a couple, but neither confirmed this when asked in the following weeks.
However, the two appeared to be more open with their romance in March, when Geronimo attended Guidicelli's birthday party. The two were spotted holding hands at the gathering, with photos of their apparent sweetness making the rounds online.
