Real-life couple Sarah Geronimo and Matteo Guidicelli broke the Internet with talks about their engagement, based on photos he uploaded online, one of which was captioned, “I love you my love, now and forever.”
Congratulatory messages sent through verified accounts of their celebrity friends, as well as those by fans and wellwishers, flooded Matteo’s Instagram page Thursday. They included Angel Locsin, Ogie Alcasid, Anne Curtis, Erik Santos, KC Concepcion, and others more.
The hashtag #AshMattNowandForever topped the Twitter trend list within the hour of announcement.
The photos show the long-time girlfriend “squeezing” the boyfriend’s neck as if to say she has him for good. A beaming Sarah is noticeably wearing what appears to be a diamond ring.
Matteo’s brother, Paolo, confirmed that Sarah will become a part of their family, officially. Paolo hinted through his own Instagram post that the families knew about the engagement before it was announced.
“Nobody found out. It was a secret,” he wrote.
Sarah and Matteo confirmed their relationship publicly five years ago, in 2014. However, they’ve already been officially together for a year by then.
