MANILA – Sarah Geronimo was cornered by the entertainment press when she was asked to react about Matteo Guidicelli’s recent pronouncement that she’s already the one that he would like to spend the rest of his life with.

The singer-actress said she is aware that she is no longer getting any younger but said she and Guidicelli are not yet seriously talking about settling down.
“Siyempre darating at darating ['yung panahon na iyon]. Ako po, 27 na. Malapit na ako mag 30. Marrying age na ako pero alam ko rin sa sarili ko na marami pa po akong kailangang ayusin sa sarili ko. So malayo-layo pa po 'yun. Wala naman pong mga seryosong pag-uusap. Tignan po natin,” she said.
But doesn’t she get pressured with the many celebrity weddings in the entertainment industry?
“Nagkakaedad na ako. 'Yung mga kakilala ko nagsisipagkasalan na. Siyempre hindi naman po ako nagpapa-pressure kasi ang dami ko pa rin namang kilala na 'yung iba nga nasa 40 na pero single pa rin, but they are happy,” she said.
Asked what age does she envision herself walking down the aisle, Geronimo said: “Siguro mga early 30s. Pero ang mga ganyang bagay, hindi mo malalaman eh. Puwede ka mag-set ng kahit nga tao pero hindi pala. Bahala na si Lord. Isu-surrender mo na lang din sa Diyos.”
Nonetheless, Geronimo said she and Guidicelli are happy with their relationship. She also noted that it is possible for someone to have a happy career and a blossoming love life.
“I think possible. Kung may commitment sa both parties na ito ang magiging set-up natin, ito ang mga kailangan nating gawin na sacrifices and compromise, I think magwo-work naman. Decision 'yun ng dalawang tao na buo talaga ang pagmamahal sa isa’t isa. Kahit busy ang schedule, you still find time to be with that person na mahal mo, possible po,” she said.
With another successful year behind her, Geronimo described her 2015 as “life-changing.”
“Everything sa career ko—actually parang transitioning nga siya kasi malapit na rin po ako mag-30. I never thought na darating ako sa ganitong pagkakataon na parang ang dami dami kong iniisip about my future. What is it that I really want for myself?”
But would she consider it the happiest year yet? “Kung pinakamasaya, pinaka-romantic, pinaka-free? Oo naman. Siyempre being able to love someone is liberating.”
