Miss Universe-Philippines 2021 Rabiya Mateo is left feeling “kilig” after receiving a special video message from Sarah Geronimo and her husband Matteo Guidicelli.
The couple sent her well wishes and offered her some advice as the Miss Universe pageant gets closer.
“To our Miss Universe, Rabiya Mateo,” greeted Sarah, then upon realizing the similarities in their names. She pointed to Matteo next to her and said, “Meet my husband Matteo.”
The actor thanked the beauty queen for making Filipinos proud and told her that she’s got their support.
“We wish you all the best. We’re praying for you and rooting for you. God bless you and thank you very much for representing the Philippines with all you can. So, maraming salamat.” He later added, “Congratulations in advance! Para sa bayan, always.”
The Popstar Royalty congratulated Rabiya in advance as well and wished her wisdom and courage for the competition.
“We’re very proud of you. Whatever happens do it for the glory of God,” said Sarah.
She continued, “God bless you. May God grant you wisdom and courage as you represent our country in the Miss Universe 2021 pageant.”
Rabiya posted the video last Thursday, May 6, with the caption, “Someone is ‘kinikilig’ right now. Awww, my popster ❤️. I love you, @justsarahg.”
Rabiya is currently in Florida, U.S.A for the Miss Universe pageant happening on May 16 (May 17 in Manila). You can catch it on the Kapamilya Channel and A2Z at 8:00am.
