The Tony award-winning actress complimented the Pop Star Royalty’s appearance during last week’s The Voice Teens episode.
Sarah and Lea are both coaches in The Voice Teens.
About his instant reaction to the Broadway star’s comment, Matteo said, “Siyempre, she compliments the person you love, it’s something nice.”
Speaking like a proud boyfriend, Matteo emphasized that the public needs to know how beautiful Sarah is.
“Totoo naman eh. Dapat buong bansa magsabi kasi maganda talaga siya [Sarah],” he said.
Meanwhile, with the outpour of blessings that are coming his way, Matteo was quizzed by the press if he was “pressured” to become “richer” than the Pop Star Royalty.
To this he said, “Pressured to be richer? I don’t think there should be a competition. What matters is how much you love somebody.”
The actor even played it coy when asked about his net worth.
"I don't know nga eh," he modestly said.
The Fil-Italian star hails from Cebu and was born to parents who are into exporting products.
At the moment, Matteo stressed that he’s still working hard to achieve his goals when questions about settling down with his long-time girlfriend cropped up.
“Kahit sino puwede masabi stable ka na. But I still have a lot of goals and dreams. I still have a lot to achieve. So, we’re still moving forward kumbaga,” he said.
