Seguerra on Monday posted a collage of a throwback and a present photo of Gray to which he captioned, “Nag Little Miss Philippines pala si Catriona, ako din naman ah…”

[Catriona was Little Miss Philippines before; I was, too.]

He added the hashtages #anyare [what happened?] and #Ibanglandas [another path].

The singer – when he was three years old – joined the EB contest where he took home the title; thereafter making him a part of the show for a decade.

He’s well known for portraying the role Aiza Kabisote, the daughter of the role played by Vic Sotto in his Enteng Kabisote movies.

Seguerra, in August 2007, announced he is a lesbian. On August 2014, he came out as a trans man.

In December of 2014, he married model and actress Liza Diño in California.

Gray, who was recently hailed “the most beautiful in the universe”, was once a contestant of the same kiddie pageant in 1999 where she ended as “Little Miss Philippines-Sydney.”

She posted on Instagram: “Relived a few childhood memories today going though some old photos! Always being a goofball and posing for pictures even then! and how cute was I in my first #LittleMissPhilippines pageant at 5 years old? …perhaps 17years is a long enough time to wait…?”

“May napatunayan ka naman..I’m so proud of you. .u just know what u want and what makes u happy…being your real kaya nga lalo kitang hinangaan..dahil real person ka..i love u talaga.”

[You have proven something and I’m so proud of you. You just know what you want and what makes you happy. Being your real self, that is why I admired you more — because you’re a real person. I really love you.]

“Hi ICE, naalala ko nung una kitang makita. Karga ka pa ni mami mo, 4yrs old ka. Sabi ko sa ‘yo pa kiss at sabi mo sa akin, baka kuritin mo din ako. Sabi ko sa ‘yo di kita kukuritin. at pumayag kang ikiss kita..super cute mo. very smart kid ka pa.”

[Hi Ice, I remember the first time I saw you. You were four years old then and carried by your mom, I asked for a kiss and you told me I might just pinch you, I replied I won’t pinch you and you agreed for a kiss. You’re super cute, smart kid too.]
