At the airport, the 26-year-old gave a touching speech to her fans!
She said :
"I'm so happy, I couldn't sleep last night because I was so excited to finally come home. I don't want to reveal too much about my experiences because I want to save those for the press conference that will happen tomorrow, so please come. I'm so happy that I've come home again here in the Philippines. It feels like I'm going to compete again."
In the next few days, the country is throwing Wurtzbach a parade that will start in Manilla and will end in Araneta Center, Quezon City.
She is The Philippines' third Miss Universe.
