Many Filipinos have shown their support for Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray. Her loyal fans and supporters were always there since the beginning of her pageant career up to the coronation night. There are also some who showed their love and support to her through their social media post.
Meanwhile, these moms have proven that they are truly loyal fans of Catriona Gray by naming their newborn baby after their idol.
Just recently, a photo of a birth certificate has gone viral after the mother named her daughter “Catriona Gray.” The viral photo has this caption “ADVANCE MAG-ISIP | ‘Yung baby na pinangalan kay Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray.”
According to Pilipino Star Ngayon, the viral post that contains the birth certificate with the name “Catriona Gray” was from a Facebook user named Milo Garcia from Davao del Sur.
Here are some comments of the netizens to the shared photo:
“So cute. Wala naman masama kung ipangalan sa baby name ni Catriona ah. They just admire Catriona.”
“Hahaha ganyan talaga yan nung nanalo nga si miss india marami kaming katukayo na ipinanganak nung 1994 ahahahah”
“Mga Pilipino nga talaga iba magisip. Kung ano ang sikat ay siyang ipinapangalan sa Bata, tunay man o palayaw lang. Mga halimbawa mga Sikat na Celebrities, Bagyo, mga Bagay at pati na mga Hayop. Lalo na sa mga Cartoons at Anime. Kaya pag laki o pag tanda na ng Bata eh niloloko at pinagtatawanan. Pero buhay nyo yan at ano ba naman ang pakialam ko, mga Baliw!”
Moreover, several mothers also followed the name of Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray in their babies.
According to the report of GMA News news on December 16, Mommy Alfa, named her baby ‘Catriona’ one day before the actual coronation day of Miss Universe 2018.
“Manalo man siya o matalo, Catriona pa rin ang pangalan ng anak ko,” Mommy Alfa said.
“Kasi nga po idol ko nga,” she added.
Another mother, also named her first daughter, Mikaila Catriona, nine days before the Miss Universe pageant. According to Mommy Mary Christine Joy, she screamed that her daughter was the winner when Catriona was declared as the new Miss Universe 2018.
“Wooh, nanalo anak ko! Nagtatatalon siya na na-justify ko raw na nanalo daw yung Catriona, ‘pag tinanong siya paglaki niya kung bakit Catriona yung pangalan niya, kasi ni-name siya ng mommy niya sa Miss Universe nu’ng 2018,” she said.
Four months before the Miss Universe 2018 pageant, Mommy Jennifer Loirca named her daughter Catriona Kate. According to her, they originally planned to name her Pia from Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach. However, they have decided to go for the name of the candidate for this year.
According to Dr. Antoinette Pacapac, spokesperson of Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital in Manila, they are expecting more mothers who will name their children after Catriona Gray, especially now, that she wins the crown for the Miss Universe 2018.
