Days into her grand homecoming to the Philippines, Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray just dropped a bomb: She’s single (gasp!).
In an online segment today on ABS-CBN entitled “Kapamilya Confessions,” the queen was picking random questions from a bowl. It was a quick Q&A segment, and she had to answer the questions she picked from the bowl, pageant-style. One of the questions read: “How can you manage your love life ngayong Miss Universe ka na po?”
Just like a learned beauty pageant winner, Catriona was quick to answer: “Well it’s all about balance, whatever works for your personal life. But for me, wala akong love life ngayon.” So, girls, we heard it from the kween herself. She’s no longer in a relationship with model Clint Bondad. She’s single, not in a relationship, available.
“So, I'm really focused on my Miss Universe journey, on being the best global representative that I can be, and also being a representative for the Philippines through and through,” she added. And, that’s that. Our Miss Universe is ready to spread her wings in her singlehood.
We think that being single comes at an opportune time for Catriona. She is, after all, set for an extremely busy year during her reign as Miss Universe. We can only assume how jampacked her schedule will be, what with all her responsibilities for the crown and the appearances and events she’ll need to attend.
We hope that she embraces her new singlehood, like she embraced the crown—with grace and with a whole lotta heart. Catriona is Miss Universe anyway, would being single really be hard? If the entire manhood had any choice (or chance), we doubt she’ll stay single for long.
We love you, Catriona! Hugs!
