Although there were some rumors that Sarah Geronimo’s parents still don’t approve of her relationship with actor Matteo Guidicelli, it seems that the Popstar Princess’ lovelife is blooming.
In fact, in the July 18 episode of The Voice Kids 2 (where Sarah serves as one of the coaches), the Popstar Princess commented on one of the contestants’ performance of Marry You.
“Ang linis ng pagkanta mo. Kulang pa sa puso siguro kasi hindi ka pa handang magpakasal,” she said and then added, “Ako lang ang handang magpakasal. Joke!”
This was why during the semi-finals press conference of the show, members of the media asked the singer/actress if she was serious about her comment about settling down.
“Opo,” she said, laughing. “Opo talaga.”
In a separate interview, Matteo said that he just needs to “fix a few things” before he can settle down.
Let’s wait and see if we are going to hear wedding bells soon.
We are praying for the peace of mind and heart of Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla and husband, action star Robin Padilla. The actress has suffered another miscarriage last August 13.
Mariel was reportedly seven weeks pregnant and were earlier ecstatic to announce that they were expecting triplets. In fact, Robin backed out from his 2015 Metro Manila Film Festival entry, Nilalang (opposite Japanese adult film star Maria Ozawa), due to his wife’s delicate pregnancy. It is still unknown whether he will return to filming.
Another sad news is that comedienne Pokwang also recently had a miscarriage, as confirmed by her boyfriend, Lee O’Brien in an interview in Celebrity Aksyon last week.
Although both saddened by the loss, Lee said that they are both trying to move on.
“You just have to accept that it hasn’t happened yet,” he said. “It wasn’t timed and it’s something that you definitely have to cope with, deal with. But at the same time it’s not something to stop your life over.”
