Sarah Geronimo confirmed that she and her husband Matteo Guidicelli are now on speaking terms with her Mommy Divine, weeks after the singer-actress gave a shout-out to her mother at the Billboard Women in Music Awards in the US.

During an interview with Dyan Castillejo on ABS-CBN News’ YouTube channel, Geronimo referred to her mom as her “hero.”


“Totoo naman na ang mga mommies naman po natin ang heroes natin. Ang parents ang heroes natin (Our mommies are indeed our heroes. Our parents are our heroes),” she said while accompanied by Guidicelli.


This led Castillejo to ask the “Tala” singer if she and Mommy Divine are now on speaking terms.

“Yes, thank you, Lord. I love you, Ma,” Geronimo said in response. Guidicelli, too, appeared to be on amicable terms with Mommy Divine as he greeted his mother-in-law with an “I love you” as well.

“I love you, Ma. We love our moms, right?” Guidicelli said.

During the interview, Geronimo said her mom is keeping herself busy by selling fresh produce from her farm.

“Ang Mama ko, nagse-sell ng fresh produce niya, gulay, fruits. Binibigyan ako ni Mama (My mom sells her fresh produce like vegetables and fruits. Mom gives me too),” she said.

‘Late bloomer’

When asked by Castillejo about her “fears” over becoming a mom in a past interview, Geronimo clarified that her sentiments came from her being “too sheltered” while growing up.


“Nanggagaling ‘yun [sa posisyon of being] too sheltered. Let’s just say I’m a late bloomer. Basically, ngayon ko pa lang nae-enjoy ang independence ko and discovering new things about myself, and kami bilang mag-asawa. Nae-enjoy namin ‘yun,” she said.

(It came from a position of me being too sheltered. Let’s just say I’m a late bloomer. Basically, I’m just enjoying my independence now and discovering new things about myself, and us as husband and wife. We’re enjoying it now.)

Geronimo, however, said she would be “grateful” if she and Guidicelli would be blessed with a child of their own.

“But when it comes, we will be grateful. If God willing,” she said.

Geronimo’s relationship with her Mommy Divine became a subject of controversy after she wed Guidicelli in a private Christian ceremony in February 2020. The wedding was discovered by her mother, which led her to storm into the ceremony.
