Matteo Guidicelli is thankful to go to sleep and wake up beside his wife Sarah Geronimo-Guidicelli, whom he recently married before the lockdown.
In his solo mediacon via Zoom app for the Ranger G documentary, Matteo was asked how he finds married life.
He laughed at first then said, “Marami, marami po, but I think every single day is a blessing and every single day is, I’m so thankful that I get to sleep and wake up beside her. Up to now is like a dream, very thankful.”
Matteo said that they both take turns in cooking as both of them learn from each other every day.
“Mix, eh, take turns. Siyempre naman, kaming dalawa, everyday we learn from each other and everyday we’re learning,” he said.
After six years of being in a relationship, the couple finally decided to have their wedding secretly which shocked the public, especially Sarah’s mom who was not invited to the ceremonies.
They even offered him an action movie about the military instead. But he insisted on it because it has been his dream since childhood.
“In fact, inalok pa niyang gumawa na lang daw ako ng action movie na tungkol sa military kung aksyon din lang gusto ko, e, sabi ko gusto ko talaga kasi dream ko to bata palang ako,” he said.
His talent manager gave him one condition before allowing him to enter the military: he needs to have a documentary about his training.
So, Matteo asked permission from his immediate supervisor to allow them to have a documentary about the training. At first, they didn’t agree, but in the end, they allowed Matteo because they also wanted the public to know the real scenario behind their training.
His training happened at Camp Pablo Tecson in Bulacan where his physical strength and mental toughness were put to the test.
To be a scout ranger, Matteo underwent the Scout Ranger orientation course that focuses on anti-guerrilla jungle warfare, raid, close-quarters combat, and urban warfare. To complete his training, he had to endure intense physical workouts, military hazing, and torture simulation.
Ranger G directed by Ver Jacinto and written by Jayson Bernard Santos is an iWant exclusive documentary premiering on May 23, from Viva Films.
