Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray (age 24) is at the peak of her career with her recent victory at the most prestigious beauty pageant in the world.
And while she has been receiving tons of praise from just about everyone for winning the Miss Universe title, Catriona gives a glowing tribute to her parents, in turn.
In her most recent Instagram post, Catriona said that her mum and dad are the two reasons for what she is today.
Catriona’s father is Ian Gray, a Scottish-born Australian, while her mother is Normita Ragas Magnayon, a Filipina who hails from Oas, Albay.
The lovable Catriona said that her parents believed in her potential ever since she was a little girl.
Her dad taught her to be tough while her mum taught her to trust her intuition and “hold a fiery soul in a soft heart”.
Here’s Catriona’s full Instagram post:
