CATRIONA Gray finally opened up about her hiding in the Philippines after she was crowned Miss Universe in Bangkok, Thailand last Dec. 17. “Well, I did go into hiding, mostly because I was in the Philippines for a charity event, but it wasn’t actually my homecoming event. So I didn’t really do a lot of interviews or talk to the media,” said Gray, during an interview for Fox News. She continued: “And another thing is that Christmas and New Year for me is a time for family. I’m an only child, and I’m very, very close with my parents, who actually live in Australia.”
“So before the coronation in Thailand, the only time that I was with them previously, was in March of 2018. So that Christmas and New Year break was only one of the two times in the whole year that I was able to be with them and spend time with them,” Gray said.
“So that is why. And I always take a hiatus, and take quiet time during moments like those, like Christmas and New Year. Because as I said, it’s really a time for family for me. But my family is so proud of me. Especially my mom and dad, being so close to me,” she added.
“And they’re incredibly, incredibly thrilled. I am so blessed to say that they supported me since day one. And for them to be there on the coronation night was very, very special,” Gray said.
