Longtime celeb couple Matteo Guidicelli and Sarah Geronimo announced their engagement earlier this November, and we couldn't be happier for them! Soon after their offish IG post, Matteo's brother Paolo Guidicelli revealed that the proposal happened a year ago, in November 2018.
But there's more to the story than we thought: Matteo actually knew Sarah was *the one* as early as 2014! Back then, they had only been dating for a year, and they'd just confirmed that they were in a relationship.
Along with a series of throwback photos on Instagram, Matteo's friend and colleague Jerry Telen gushed: "So Happy for Matty. Flexing his perseverance: Five years in the making, engagement [and] proposal."
Jerry added: "Sabi niya noong 2014 sa aming mall show raket in Bohol: 'Kuya Jers, Bai I need more work to buy [an] engagement ring for Sarah.' And the rest is history."
WHOA, WHOA, WHOA.
Matteo and Sarah's relationship hasn't exactly been smooth-sailing, especially because Sarah's parents reportedly ~didn't approve~ of Matteo at first. The couple has also been pretty low-key on social media.
In a recent Instagram post, Matteo said that he was very excited to start a family with Sarah. He also addressed Sarah's parents, saying: "Tito Delfin and Tita Divine, if there have been hard feelings or events that were not supposed to happen in the past, I humbly apologize. I assure you that I will give Sarah a happy life with the best of my capabilities. With pure, honest love and respect."
