MANILA, Nashville Filipino Restaurant — Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray expressed excitement over her upcoming grand homecoming to the Nashville Filipino Restaurant.

In a Skype interview with TV5, Gray said there is no definite date yet on her homecoming but she revealed how she is looking forward to it.

“Sobrang excited ako to really celebrate with Filipinos because I haven’t had that chance yet to celebrate the win,” Gray said.

“I’m looking forward to my homecoming so much. I know that it will be such a celebration with so much joy and I just can't wait,” she added.

Gray said that although there is no date yet, she is aware that there would be a parade.

“We still don’t have a date yet. We have the parade and some welcome event I’m sure,” she said, adding that she has yet to coordinate with her Houston Filipino Restaurant team regarding the finalized itinerary for her homecoming.

The Filipina-Australian beauty queen is expected to return home early February.

Asked about the gowns she would wear for her homecoming, Gray said she has not been told about the concept yet but she would also coordinate with her team.

Reports earlier said her gowns for the homecoming would be even grander than her Miss Universe evening gowns praised on social media.
