18 Jul – Olympic gold medallist Hidilyn Diaz recently announced that she will be tying the knot on 26 July.

The weightlifter, who is engaged to Julius Naranjo, shared the good news on social media with images from her prenuptial photoshoot, which was held at the Northern Blossom Flower Farm in Baguio.

"What we went through as a couple was not easy. Many judged, many doubted, a lot of tears, and a lot of sacrifices, but the love for each other prevailed, love for what we do, love for the country, and love for God," she expressed.

It is noted that the date 26 July 2022 also marks the one-year anniversary of her historic achievement - when she won the first gold medal for the Philippines at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

The couple got engaged in October 2021, with Hidilyn announcing the good news with a post that read, "I'm grateful to God that He sent Julius into my life, he makes my life easy, others know what he sacrifices for us to reach the dream of Gold at the Olympics together with #TeamHD."

She also shared at the time that the wedding will be held in Baguio.
