If Catriona Gray was over the moon with her Miss Universe win, we’re willing to bet it was nothing compared to what her parents were feeling.
Twitter user @MikeinCambodia – who was seated near Catriona’s parents (Ian Gray and Normita Magnayon) – managed to capture the couple’s reaction when their daughter snagged the crown.

Instagram fan account catrionauniverse gave a better look at the pair’s unfiltered emotions, and it’s enough to make anyone – including us – cry.
