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.
