The new set of Binibining Pilipinas queens have been crowned:
Bb. Pilipinas-Globe Michele Gumabao, Bb. Pilipinas Grand International Eva Patalinjug, Bb. Pilipinas-Intercontinental Karen Gallman, Bb. Pilipinas-Supranational Jehza Huelar, Bb. Pilipinas-International Ma. Ahtisa Manalo, and Miss Universe Philippines Catriona Gray are the newly-crowned beauties set to represent the country in the next season of pageantry.
And among those who are celebrating the ladies' victories are their supportive boyfriends—save for Ahtisa, who doesn't post about her love life on social media.
Here are the beaus of the five beauty queens.
Clint Bondad, Boyfriend of Catriona Gray
Catriona Gray is more than grateful to have a boyfriend like Clint Bondad.
She told PEP.ph in a previous interview, "[Clint's] been with me through a lot of things in my life. He's very, very supportive. I'm so grateful for him. That's what I want in a partner, someone that would push me to be better, to challenge myself, and support me all the way, and he really does."
When Catriona won Miss World-Philippines in 2016, Clint took a video of his girlfriend's winning answer during the Q&A portion.
In his caption, the Filipino-German model wrote, "Sorry for the super shaky hands! Haha heart racing and out of breath but simply amazed. Never stopped doing that to me. And that since almost 5 years! So proud of you my heart @catriona_gray!!!"
This time around, for Catriona's win in Binibining Pilipinas 2018, Clint posted a cute photo of them together.
His equally-cute congratulatory message read, "Nothing better in the universe than cuddling you with sleepy eyes and knowing that you have arrived.
"My Queen. My Everything."
PJ Simon, Boyfriend of Jehza Huelar
Meanwhile, PBA star PJ Simon was fresh from his semi-finals basketball match in Ynares Center, Antipolo when he arrived at the Araneta Coliseum for the 2018 Binibining Pilipinas grand coronation night.
The cager was happy that he made it in time for the coronation of his fiancée Jehza Huelar as Bb. Pilipinas-Supranational 2018
His congratulatory message read: "So happy to have a front-row seat to see your dreams come true! #MyQueen"
PJ and Jehza got engaged on January 1, 2018.
