"My Queen. April 30, 2022. An evening we will cherish forever!! To see you with the Crown on that stage gave us all extreme chills.. you were stunning! On behalf of everyone else that had known her before she began the official journey for the Miss Universe; we’ve always known she was bound for the Crown," he posted.
Mathew also took a trip back on memory lane and shared Celeste's journey towards her winning moment.
"We’ve seen her GROW, we’ve seen her inspire the people she meets not just by words & actions.. BUT by simply carrying her values, her upbringing., she keeps her feet on the ground., she stands consistently true on honesty, loyalty, and perseverance," he said.
He also remarked that Celeste possesses the qualities of a true queen.
"As crazy as this may sound, we’ve witnessed the Universe align towards you. You are a magical human being and you were raised to do GOOD things. You didn’t have to be a panelist nor a front row judge to see that she possesses the attributes of a true, regal Queen," he stated.

"On a personal level, I feel very blessed to be loved by you. Like a mother’s love, your love is a constant reminder that there is a greater meaning & purpose in our lives. I cannot wait for our country & the whole world to feel the love you are about to share. It needs it," he wrote.
