    Sarah spoke to PEP.ph and select members of the press in a digital interview organized by Manulife Insurance last Thursday, October 15, 2020. She said, "Actually ngayon po, nasa adjustment period pa rin po ako na parang I keep reminding myself na hindi na ako single.

    "Iba na ang priorities ko sa buhay. My priority now is my husband kasi yun po ang reality ng buhay pag-aasawa. My priority now is my husband and the family that I'm building with I'm husband."

    By family, did she mean planning a baby soon?

    Sarah dismissed the suggestion, saying, "Siyempre, gusto namin makapag-ipon muna."

    As the interview was about securing a good future for the family, Sarah became wistful about seeing herself as a mom. She said, "Actually, naiisip ko rin iyan, e, paano kapag nagkaroon ako ng anak. Paano ko siya, somehow as a parent, sa childhood stage nila, ikaw talaga ang magmo-mold ng beliefs nila, character din.

    "Siyempre yung innate na character nila or traits, nasa kanila na yun, e. Pero naiisip ko, paano ko ba sila mapapalaki nang tama? Paano ko babalansehin yung pag-give in ko sa kung ano yung gusto nila sa kung sa ano yung tingin kong gusto ko na makakabuti para sa kanila. Iniisip ko po yun lahat, araw-araw yata."

    Marital bliss in the time of pandemic

    Although Sarah would have wanted to do more travels with Matteo before starting a family, that's not likely to happen soon because of the pandemic.

    So, how is her married life under quarantine?

    She cracked, "Ang joke ko nga is parang 10 years na kaming mag-asawa ni Matt dahil nga 24/7 magkasama lang kami sa loob ng bahay."

    On a serious note, Sarah added, "We want to enjoy itong stage ng buhay namin as husband and wife. Mas gusto po namin na... well, sabi nga nila, nag-lockdown so hindi kami nakapag-travel, hindi namin na-enjoy pa yung mag-asawa pa na buhay. So ayun, gusto po sana namin, while nakakapag-ipon kami, kunyare, meron kaming travel funds...

    "Ang galing nga ng asawa ko e, siya talaga yung very organized. Siya, 'Ito love, ise-set natin tong funds na to for our groceries, mga kailangan sa bahay.' Siyempre gusto rin namin makapagtayo ng sarili naming bahay. It's about setting our priorities. Medyo nakakalula po, pero yun talaga, mag-organize ng mga priorities."

    Future kid

    Asked the inevitable question about allowing her future child to follow in her footsteps, and enter showbiz, Sarah answered maybe with some reservations.

    She said, "Maybe I will not encourage, but if she decides na, ‘Ito talaga gusto ko, gusto ko maging singer, gusto ko maging dancer, gusto ko maging artista,’ yes, I would definitely support my kid.

    "Pero para sa akin, gusto ko unahin niya muna yung kanyang pag-aaral. Matapos niya yung kanyang pag-aaral kasi nakikita ko yung mga pamangkin ko, ‘Ah, matanda na pala sila, 20 plus na pala sila.’ Parang ambilis bilis ng panahon. Sandali lang, e, sandal lang yung mag-aaral ka.

    "And then after that, kung ano man yung gusto mong gawin sa buhay, gusto mo mag-motocross diyan or mag-piano or whatever, sige, gawin mo.’ Pero importante po talaga na may degree ka na natapos. I don’t know kung ano yung magiging perspective ko sa buhay in the future, pero, for now, napaka-importante po sa akin na yung education matapos po niya."
