Actor Matteo Guidicelli admitted on national television during the November 16 episode of noontime variety show Tropang LOL that he is grateful for his wife, singer Sarah Geronimo.
The noontime host shared how their relationship was similar to the situation of the ex-couple in the show’s segment, HOPE.
This is one of the few times Matteo has publicly talked about his relationship with Sarah.
“That’s the beauty of love. Sa pag-ibig, marerealize natin na hindi tayo perfect as an individual. Pero kapag dumating ang tao na talagang swak sa’yo, parang puzzle ang pag-ibig. Dapat magtulungan kayo para maging buo at maging isa kayo. I really put so much respect on people who [go] against all odds, who are so brave,” he said.
HOPE is Tropang LOL’s relationship segment wherein former partners try to rekindle the relationship they had in the past. Lionel and Maricar, who were the guests for the segment in the November 16 episode, were together for 10 years and faced different challenges such as the disapproval of the former’s family.
The 32-year-old actor shared his own relationship experience––how he and the singer-actress had to face challenges in order to be where they are today.
“I’d like to also give it up to my wife, that she went against all odds for me. At the end of the day, love is the decision of two individuals, not about the people in the family or the people around them anymore. It’s about you and your partner,” he said.
He then gave advice to the couple to “always put God in the middle” of their relationship and added that if the former lovers’ relationship is meant to happen, it will happen in the perfect time.
Matteo and Sarah exchanged wedding vows back in February 2020 which led to some misunderstandings between them and the singer’s family.
Just last month, Sarah publicly apologized to her family for the “decisions” she had to make back then.
