Celebrity couple Sarah Geronimo and Matteo Guidicelli wished the Philippines’ bet for Miss Universe Rabiya Mateo the best of luck less than two weeks before she competes in the international beauty pageant.

In her caption, the beauty queen, who is apparently a huge fan of Sarah, could not hide her "kilig" as she expressed her love for the pop singer.
"Someone is ‘kinikilig’ right now. Awww, my popster. I love you @justsarahgph," she wrote.
