MANILA – Matteo Guidicelli understands why his girlfriend, singer-actress Sarah Geronimo, became emotional in last Sunday's episode of "The Voice of the Philippines."
Geronimo broke down in tears when she was made to choose who between Monique Lualhati and Kokoi Baldo should advance to the semifinals of the TV singing contest along with balladeer Jason Dy.
Hesitating several times to announce her pick, Geronimo could no longer hold her tears when Lea Salonga held her to comfort and encourage her.
Speaking to ABS-CBN News on Tuesday, Guidicelli said he was not surprised that Geronimo cried, saying his girlfriend really cares for the contestants.
“Siyempre it’s emotional to pick out someone. 'The Voice' is really something heavy for her dahil she loves the show, she loves all her contestants,” she said.
Asked how he comforts Geronimo every time she loses a member in her team, the actor said: “I always tell her she has all the credibility. She’s a super believable coach. She’s an amazing person with an amazing talent. She knows it. Magaling siya. I just tell her to believe in herself.”
Guidicelli said he follows every episode of “The Voice” and that Geronimo and her team members have his support.
“I watch her, I watch them. I just wish all of them good luck. She knows [what she’s doing]. Magaling 'yan,” he said.
Meanwhile, the actor said he is happy that his relationship with Geronimo is getting stronger through time.
“It’s getting stronger, making us better, stronger, braver people. Life is a roller coaster. It’s a good roller coaster,” he said.
Although they were not able to spend Valentine’s Day together because of work, Guidicelli said: “Sobrang busy niya ngayon sa mga projects niya. 'Yun talaga ang first priority niya. Work first all the time pero understandable naman.”
