Isn't it cool when your girlfriend or boyfriend is close to your parents?
Indeed, nothing beats a relationship approved by the people who matter to you.
Hence, when Matteo Guidicelli courted Sarah Geronimo, he had to come to her house and express his sincere intention to Delfin and Divine Geronimo.
It has not been smooth sailing, but the couple will be celebrating their third anniversary this coming October.
Matteo mom has not actually granted any interview where she said she likes Sarah for her son.
But the photos that had been posted on Instagram are more than enough proofs that the Popstar Princess is like a family to the Guidicellis.
This one had the AshMatt fans ecstatic.
Now here's a short list of celebrity couples whose family or mom or dad has been vocal and showy about appreciating the girlfriend or boyfriend of their children.
Make it one of your #RelationshipGoals...
1. Kathryn Bernardo and Carla Estrada
This photo of the Kapamilya actress was posted by Daniel Padilla's mom on her Instagram account with the caption, "Beautiful inside out."
Add to that, Carla's birthday message for Kathryn, who turned 20 last March 26, was so touching.
She wrote on Instagram: "Happy Birthday to you, Kath! I'm your number 1 fan!
"Proud NA proud ako Sa lahat lahat ng narating mo at para Sa akin ay IKAW Ang pinakamahusay, pinakamabait, pinakamaganda at pinakamapagkumbaba!
"Andito Lang ako, Ang isa Sa Mga tagapagtanggol mo."
2. Nadine Lustre and Mr. Malcolm Reid
This was taken after the JaDine in Love concert last February 20, the night James Reid said, "I love you," to Nadine Lustre.
Backstage, Daddy Malcolm was seen giving Nadine a hug.
Some fans said on social media that he supposedly told Nadine, "Welcome to the family."
3. Erich Gonzales and Mrs. Geralda Matsunaga
In April 2015, a photo uploaded via the Instagram account of Daniel's mom fueled the speculations about Erich's relationship with the Pinoy Big Brother winner.
Mrs. Matsunaga then called Erich her "daughter."
Over a year later, the actress thanks her "Mama Linda" for caring for her like a daughter.
4. Paul Jake Castillo and Kaye Abad's family
Long before he proposed to her, Paul Jake had already gotten the approval not just of Kaye's parents but her entire family.
5. Tom Rodriguez and Carla Abellana's family
Tom and Carla have not openly admitted their relationship.
But seeing him at the family gatherings and trips of Carla's family, is there still a need to confirm the real score?
6. Marian Rivera and Mrs. Angeline Dantes

7. Chiz Escudero and Mrs. Cecile Ongpauco
Heart's then-relationship with Senator Chiz didn't sit well with her mom Cecile and dad Rey.
For two years, they did not talk.
Mr. and Mrs. Ongpauco were also no show at Heart's wedding on February 15, 2015.
But all's well that ends well.
Heart's recent trip to Balesin, where she got married, included her husband and her mom.
8. Rufa Mae Quinto and future mother-in-law "Mama Stef"
Last February, Trevor Magallanes's mom organized the engagement party of her son and Rufa Mae.
