“I know that everyday by your side is special but today is the day that we are celebrating a decade together and I thank you, God for having crossed my path and being able to feel true love from you.”
I love you very much mommy, and may it be for many more years of learning and above all we continue to fulfill dreams together. Thanks to all who accompanied us and they are always for us. Happy 10 years.”
The couple has two children together. In late 2022, while the PSL took a break due to the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, the Sirino family went to Disneyland Paris in France and shared photos of their time there on Instagram.
