Geoffrey Edelsten’s grieving widow Gabi Grecko has hinted at a future romance with her late husband’s son, Matthew Beard.
Aspiring rapper Gabi, 32, recently confirmed she chatted online with Sydney-based bodybuilder Matthew, 32, after his father’s death, and now says she’s grown fond of the heir to Geoffrey’s fortune.
Speaking with the Herald Sun on Sunday, New York-based Gabi said she was amazed at how similar Matthew’s mannerisms are to those of his millionaire businessman father.

“He’s definitely an attractive man and it amazes me how much they look alike,” Gabi said.
“They make the same hand gestures over Face Time and it almost feels like I’m talking to Geoff,” she mused.
According to the publication, Gabi has even hinted that she hopes to move forward with Matthew, whose Instagram page is currently stating that he is “single.”

After a user asked if the tattooed gym buff could be her new husband, Gabi reportedly replied, “@beardy_mrcasanova is next.”
It comes days after Gabi posted photos of Matthew on her Instagram feed.
In the photos, Matthew — who was known to be fiercely private — wore gold dental grids on his teeth and dense, manicured facial hair.

He also showed off his toned muscles in a range of poses, including a selfie taken during a workout at a gym.
Gabi wrote in her caption next to the photos, “Guess who’s talking to Matthew Beard. Yes. son of Geoffrey Edelsten. (Have permission to post). You heard from Shroom Foxx aka the editor-in-chief of GlittA Foxx!’
Matthew, who has stayed out of the spotlight, is said to have attended Edelsten’s funeral on June 16.

It was a simple farewell attended by just over 30 mourners, who gathered on his plot in the Jewish Gardens of the Springvale Botanical Cemetery.
