With President Rodrigo Duterte’s seal of approval, Matteo Guidicelli is now officially a second lieutenant of the Philippine Army.
The exciting news has been announced Tuesday, Aug. 20, as he shared live updates from the actor’s “donning of the ranks” ceremony at the Philippine Army headquarters in Taguig City.
There to do the honors of donning the pin on Matteo was his long-time girlfriend, Sarah Geronimo.
Usually, family members are tasked to don the pins, but Matteo chose girlfriend to do the honors. Sarah wearing a glittering “ARMY” pin.
It was in June when the Filipino-Italian hunk courted headlines after graduating from his month-long training as an Army reservist.
Prior to joining the Philippine Army, he also entered the Philippine Coast Guard Auxiliary alongside fellow celebrities Erwan Heussaff and Nico Bolzico. (Push)
