It’s another win for the Philippines’ golden girl!
More than two months after delivering the country’s first-ever Olympic gold medal, Hidilyn Diaz announced more big news, this time about her personal life.
The weightlifting champion revealed in an Instagram post Saturday that her boyfriend and strength and conditioning coach Julius Naranjo popped the big question and without any hesitation, she said yes.
“It’s [a] YES!,” Diaz shared in a heartfelt message.
“It was a magical moment with Julius. I’m grateful to God that He sent Julius into my life, he make my life easy. Alam ng iba kung ano mga sinasakripisyo niya para maabot namin ang pangarap na Ginto sa Olympics together with #TeamHD.”
In the post, Diaz flaunted her Olympic gold medal while wearing the golden engagement ring on her left ring finger.
“Masaya ako kasi siya mismo nagsabi [na] God is the center of our relationship, kaya walang duda magYeYES ako dahil swerte ako may isang Julius nagmamahal, nagintindi , at sumoporta sakin.”
Finally, Diaz thanked everyone who made the proposal meaningful and worth remembering for.
“Thank you sa lahat ng kasabwat ni Julius, magaling po kayo naging meaningful ang gabi dahil sa inyo.”
Diaz and Naranjo are both leaving the country today to return to a training facility in Malaysia and gear up for the IWF World Championship set to unfurl on December 7 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.
