Sarah Geronimo and Matteo Guidicelli's first appearance at the ABS-CBN Ball brought lots of kilig feels among their avid supporters.
The two looked like the perfect couple as they walked the red carpet heading to the Rizal Ballroom of Makati Shangri-La Hotel earlier tonight, September 29.
Sarah and Matteo were even spotted holding hands while walking—which was a rare sight since they usually keep a low profile when there are cameras around.
They were inseparable even as they mingled with other celebrities inside the ballroom.
This was also the first time the couple stepped out in a media-covered event following their trip to Italy, where they celebrated their fifth anniversary.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last September 20, Matteo confirmed that Sarah was with him during his week-long vacation in Italy.
But Matteo didn't give further details, except for the coffee dates they enjoyed in some of the most popular cafés there.
Matteo also mentioned in the same interview that he's thrilled to be going on a date with Sarah at the ABS-CBN Ball (formerly known as Star Magic Ball) for the first time in the five years that they have been together.
He said, “I don’t know what to say. This is the first time… We’ll see. We’re just gonna have a good time.”
By the looks of it, they are indeed having fun!
ABS-CBN Ball 2018 is for the benefit of Bantay Bata Childrens Village 163.
