In these unsure days, one of many uncommon humorous moments I had was seeing Matteo Guidicelli leap up from his seat as a result of he thought he felt a rat scurry throughout his ft. He was on Instagram video for his advocacy, OneVoicePilipinas. Then he requested if others, presumably Sarah, felt it, too. Sarah maybe may solely chortle.
It was fairly cute. The social media followers of Matteo and leisure icon Sarah Geronimo apparently can’t get sufficient of those newlyweds and their younger married life throughout quarantine. How fortunate may a pair in love be, they are saying, decreed to dwell with one another in isolation day after day.
After they had family-only marriage ceremony rites final March—a secret nuptial that had an outrageously public aftermath (please know your present biz 101)—the couple hardly knew that their much-longed-for privateness could be granted by a pandemic.
At the moment they dwell alone, with solely the househelp.
“It’s like waking as much as a dream daily,” Matteo instructed us the opposite day in a telephone interview about their married life. “I thank God for placing me beside her.”
Proper after they acquired married, Matteo mentioned, after I texted to ask how they had been doing, “Excellent. Have an incredible spouse who brings magic to my life daily.”
At the moment, months later, clearly the honeymoon isn’t over. The 2 get pleasure from doing home chores collectively. As Matteo and I talked on the telephone, Sarah was busy cooking. What? I requested. Matteo mentioned, “Don’t know but, Tita.”
Matteo’s home specialties are all types of pastas—identify it, he can do it, which comes as no shock, given his Italian lineage. Matteo grew up along with his Italian grandparents round in Cebu—he was the apple of his grandfather’s eye; D’ Gianni, the Guidicellis’ restaurant in Alabang, Muntinlupa, is known as after him.
Sarah cooks Filipino non-meat dishes. Matteo loves Sarah’s shrimp with garlic and her greens.
After a courtship of greater than 5 years—a dramatic roller-coaster journey that concerned relationship in utmost secrecy, given the opposition of Sarah’s mother and father to it—who would have thought that we’d be speaking about Sarah’s shrimps with garlic now?
“I can’t ask for something extra,” Matteo mentioned, and immediately I recalled the tales he shared over dinners with us, Swatch model builder Virgie Ramos, director-turned-teleserye hit Rowell Santiago, Sandy Tan-Uy, amongst others—his cheerleaders in wooing Sarah.
Sarah was and is the love of his life. At the same time as he was beginning out in present biz and was gaining recognition as a automotive racer, he was already a Sarah fan.
He would watch all her concert events, even so far as in Batangas, the place he was content material seeing her from the bleachers. So when in Sarah’s and Regine’s newest live performance final Valentine’s Day, Matteo was seated on the entrance row, his rah-rah dinner crew unanimously exclaimed, “Progress!” The couple had been engaged by then, and could be married lower than a month later.
The marriage was a particular second symbolized by particular rings from Tiffany. It was some technique to cap a dramatic relationship that may make Ok-drama pale compared.
“We’re studying to be with one another,” Matteo mentioned of their every day life. They proceed to find new issues about one another.
“I see for myself how extremely meticulous Sarah may very well be, like in getting ready for a present,” Matteo mentioned.
They’ve busy days. After we talked, Matteo simply completed an 80 km bike lap/triathlon morning—all digital.
Each are busy with their advocacy, the OneVoicePh, carried out with Landers grocery store chain, which distributes reduction items to deprived communities, from Metro Manila all the best way to Cebu. It has raised greater than P10 million. (Donate at OneVoicePilipinas.Landers.PH) Within the distribution, Matteo places his navy affiliation to good use—he’s a military reservist.
At the beginning of the lockdown, Matteo additionally helped ship mattresses for the front-liners on the Lung Middle, which was among the many first authorities establishments to simply accept new coronavirus illness (COVID-19) instances. He did this via Uratex, his endorsement.
They don’t have any quick plans to have a child but. They simply relish discovering new issues about one another every day.
And what’s the educational the brand new hubby can share with different hubbies? “Respect one another,” Matteo mentioned.
And—“The spouse is all the time appropriate!” Now you’re studying, Matt.
