"I love you my love, now and forever," Matteo said in the caption.

Sarah can be seen putting her hands over Matteo's neck as if doing a "sakal" pose, a play on the word "kasal" (wedding).

Celebrity friends quickly poured greetings and well wishes for the couple.

"Yay!!!" TV host Karla Estrada said.

Actress Angel Locsin commented with three heart emojis and "Congratulations!!!!"

"CONGRATS YOU TWO!" said singer Darren Espanto.

Sarah and Matteo first met in 2016 through their common friend, Billy Crawford.

In an interview with ABS-CBN, Matteo recalled having a huge crush on Sarah, which his then girlfriend, Maja Salvador, knew.

“I called Billy and I said, ‘Introduce me to Sarah, introduce me to her,’” he narrated.

Billy, who had a show in Cebu with Sarah, arranged a meeting between the two. Matteo then started "stalking" the pop princess by catching her show in Batangas and even lining up with her fans just to have a "selfie" with her.

“I sat down—really, at the back of the Popsters. Tapos pumila ako sa meet-and-greet, and then nagpa-picture of kay Sarah,” he told ABS-CBN.

He said that years after they have been a couple, he gave Sarah a copy of their first picture together.

Since then, the two have been very private about their relationship. Sarah always refused to be interviewed about Matteo. The public relied on fans' "paparazzi" snapshots to know their latest whereabouts.

With their engagement, the union of Team #AshMatt would surely become among the biggest weddings to watch out for!
