“My father has been my best example; he is my mentor, my solid rock. Papa and mama’s values, passion and selfless attitude has taught my siblings and me a lot and has molded us to become what we are today,” he said in an Instagram post.
“One day, I pray, I will do the same for my own family. I’m very blessed and honored that my parents welcomed Sarah to our humble family like another daughter,” he added.
The actor-athlete continued on to say that their relationship like many others has not been easy.
“But let me tell you, it hasn’t been easy. Sarah has been tough. I saw her grow, mature, and develop into an independent beautiful woman that I am extremely proud of,” he said.
Matteo said sorry to his future in-laws for any hard feelings in the past.
“Tito Delfin and Tita Divine, if there have been hard feelings or events that were not supposed to happen in the past, I humbly apologize,” he said, assuring Sarah’s parents that he will give her a “happy life”.
Matteo expressed how much he loves Sarah, adding that he loves her parents and siblings, and vowed to take care of the singer the same way her family did.
“Mahal na mahal ko po si Sarah. Mahal ko din po kayung magulang nya at mga kapatid nya. Hangad ko po na maging isang pamilya tayo. Pangako ko po na aalagan ko si Sarah na kapareho ng pangangalaga nyo sa kanya.”
