Camarines Sur Governor Migz Villafuerte is one proud boyfriend.
His girlfriend, Rachel Peters, was crowned Miss Universe-Philippines 2017 at the Binibining Pilipinas 2017 coronation night, held last Sunday, April 30.
Migz's happiness for Rachel's victory was written all over his face when they met right after the coronation night.
This was captured in a photo that the young politician shared on his Instagram account yesterday, May 1.
He said on the caption: "you made it - i'm so proud of you."
Migz added, “[My] face, when i first saw Rachel finally crowned last night!!”
Rachel Peters' boyfriend Migz Villafuerte is the youngest governer to be elected in the Philippines. He was 24 when he won the position in Camarines Sur during the 2013 elections. His opponent was his grandfather and then-outgoing governor, Luis Villafuerte. The politician is an alumnus of University of San Diego in the U.S.
In his interview with Rappler right after the pageant, the 28-year-old politician from the Bicol region joked about Rachel's triumph: “Parang nanalo uli ako sa eleksyon.”
He then commended Rachel for all her hard work to get the crown.
“Sa totoo lang, alam ko kung ano ang pinagdaanan ni Rachel.
"Grabe pong sakripisyo, hard work, sleepless nights.
"And awa ng mahal na Diyos, nakuha po niya ang pinapangarap niya sa buhay,” said Migz.
Before the pageant, Migz also posted a message of support to his girlfriend:
“by far, you are the most genuine, sexiest and most beautiful of them all.”
