Hunky Kapamilya star Marco Gumabao is super excited, proud and happy for his sister Michele Gumabao – as she begins her journey as a beauty queen. It was confirmed that she would be participating in the 2018 Binibining Pilipinas pageant as a contestant.
Fans and followers of the volleyball-player-turned-beauty-queen were pleasantly surprised at how her transformation came about. The former co-captain of the De La Salle Lady Spikers certainly impressed everyone when she made this career shift. With her beauty and brains – she is definitely a perfect fit for the illustrious beauty pageant.
In an interview with PUSH, Marco Gumabao revealed that he was among the first to know of Michele’s plans. The actor and model said that he was more than happy to play a supportive role in his sister’s beauty queen journey.
“Basta ako if ever she needs me to post for anything (on social media) and if she wants me to go to her event siyempre pupunta ako.”
The hunky actor also said that Michele didn’t need their parents’ approval – but she asked them anyway.
“She has her own life naman and she makes her own decisions, but siyempre she still asked Mom and Dad kung ano ba ang maganda pang gawin and siyempre lahat kaming family, full support kami for her.”
Furthermore, Marco Gumabao revealed that it was their aunt, actress Isabel Rivas, who was hoping that someone from their family would become a beauty queen. He even expressed doubts whether Michele’s athletic body type was a fit for the pageant scene. Those doubts were easily erased after seeing his sister’s amazing transformation.
“I’m happy sa transformation niya,” Marco said.
