Matteo Guidicelli is now looking forward to starting a family with Sarah Geronimo.
The 33-year-old actor referred to it as his Christmas wish this year during a recently concluded media conference for his upcoming 2023 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry, Penduko.
“I guess for 2024 and in the future sana mag-baby na kami. In God’s time,” Matteo said, adding that he and his wife have been planning to have a baby for a long time now.
“At the end of the day, my priority is my wife and family so I think that’s part of the plan. But again, you can’t plan too hard because it’s God that uses this blessing,” he continued. “So, we just hope for the best and do what we have to do.”
“Whatever comes, whatever happens, happens. Let’s just pray for that,” he said.
The Black Rider actor first expressed his desire to become a father in May this year, saying that it's something he has long been prepared for. “Handang handa na, dati pa.”
“God willing, after all activities that Sarah wants to do [and] want to accomplish and, of course, my commitments with [GMA Network], hopefully, by the end of the year, sana pag-pray natin lahat na makabuo,” he said at the time.
Sarah confirmed her relationship with Matteo in 2014 after being spotted together in different locations. They first worked together in 2011 on the film Catch Me… I’m In Love, where they starred alongside Gerald Anderson.
They announced their engagement in 2019 and tied the knot in an intimate ceremony a year later.
In October, the couple launched their own studio known as G Studios—a space where celebrities, artists, content creators, agencies, and their clients can "express their creativity and vision and foster collaboration." It caters to all advertising, media, and event needs with its video-photo production studio and well-lit kitchen studio.
