Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, October 16)— It’s another gold for Hidilyn Diaz!

The Olympic weightlifter on Saturday announced that she is now engaged to her partner and coach Julius Naranjo.

“It's [a] YES! It was a magical moment,” Diaz wrote on her social media page, sharing a photo of herself donning her gold medal and ring.

Masaya ako kasi siya mismo nagsabi God is the center of our relationship, kaya walang duda magye-YES ako dahil swerte ako may isang Julius nagmamahal, nagintindi, at sumoporta sakin,” she added.

[Translation: I’m happy because it was he who said that God is the center of our relationship, that’s why I had no doubts that I would say yes. I’m lucky I have a Julius who loves, understands, and supports me.]

Naranjo also confirmed the news on his Instagram account, posting a snap of his bride-to-be.

Diaz etched her name in the history books after clinching the country's first Olympic gold in July. The pride of Zamboanga dominated the women's -55kg final and set new Olympic records en route to the victory.
