MATTEO GUIDICELLI had a solo presscon via zoom as endorser of Sun Life Newlywed Starter Pack, which is very apt for him since he and wifey Sarah Geronimo are really newlyweds. So how is married life so far?

“I’ll recommend it to everyone as I’m having the best time of my life!” he says. “But of course, you have the choose the right partner. 

"With me, I’m just thankful to wake up next to my wife every morning. I feel so blessed.”

So there’s no truth to the rumors that they’re not getting along fine and are about to break up? 

“Definitely not true! We’re enjoying each other’s company. We make decisions together.”

What has he discovered about Sarah that he didn’t know before? 

“Na she knows how to bake. At magaling pala siyang mag-bake. Nagulat ako.”

And about him, what has he discovered? 

“That I have a green thumb pala. Sinubukan kong magtanim at nakakatuwa kasi tumutubo naman yung plants. We’re plantito and plantita na.”

What would he say is his shortcoming as a husband, if any? 

“Ano ba? I don’t know. But I think yung when we watch movies at night, kasi we bought a huge TV. While watching, I fall asleep agad. E kasi, I wake up early in the morning. So nauuna na akong matulog.”

So do they have fights? 

“Yes, like all married couples do. Hindi naman siguro maaalis yun, part of marriage, but the important thing is you know how to go through with it by saying, love, sorry, it’s my fault.”

Will they still have a grand church wedding? 

“Yes, when the right time comes. Kapag may vaccine na tayong lahat.”

He’s now with Viva and he’s doing “Masked Singer” for TV5. Does he miss being with ABS-CBN? 

“I do, but I’ve just taped a Christmas special for them with Toni Gonzaga. It’s nice to see again their production people and I’m so happy nakatuntong uli ako sa studio nila. 

"But sa TV5 now, marami ring production people na galing din sa ABS. I’m also doing a horror show, ‘Kagat ng Dilim’, directed by Rae Red.”

As a family man now, Matteo is happy to partner with Sun Life in strengthening his financial foundation Sun Life’s Newlywed Starter Pack, a bundle of financial solutions ideal for those who are starting a family or saving up for their future milestones.

So when do they plan to have a baby? 

“Sana next week  na. It will happend when it’s God’s will. We’re trying naman but as of now, we’re just enjoying each other more kasi we weren’t able to do that much as boyfriend-girlfriend. Kung darating, we will definitely welcome this blessing and we think we are ready for it.”

How many do they intend to have? 

“As many as kung ilan ang ibibigay ni Lord. The more the merrier! Hahahaha!”
