Catriona Gray took to social media to pen a heartwarming birthday message for her father, Ian Gray.
The Miss Universe 2018 remarked that she is looking forward to spending time again with her dad.
"Happy Birthday to my forever young papa bear!! Can't wait to be with you again," she posted.
Catriona also expressed her gratitude for her dad's support throughout the years.
"I'm so grateful to have such a wise, intentional and strong father like you, always cheering me on, always telling me I can do it...always telling me how proud you are of me," she said.
"Love you so much papa. Can't wait to celebrate with you over a big meal and a good glass of wine!" the beauty queen added.
Catriona's dad Ian and her mother Normita Magnayon-Gray reside in Australia.
The beauty queen was reunited with her parents in Australia in May 2021, after being apart for more than a year because of the pandemic.
“1 year and 4 months later... Finally reunited with my mama and papa bear. Family is everything. Thank you God for answering my prayers,” she shared on her social media page in May of last year.
