I have to admit the personal challenge in completing the 3rd episode of Pageantry Norms Season 5 on being first-time parents and raising a family. But the presence of two Binibining Pilipinas titleholders with their husbands and babies made it all worthwhile and heartwarming.
Thank you to PJ Simon, Jehza Huelar Simon, Francis Mavrich Lim, Eva Patalinjug and my two youngest guests ever – Baby Jeidon and Baby Fredrick – for keeping me company earlier.

What could be more fulfilling than becoming a Mother during Women’s Month. Our Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2018 Jehza Huelar Simon will give birth to her first born very soon. And the most-awaited moment will have her husband Peter June Simon – or PJ if you will – by her side every step of the way.
Here are glorious photos during the Maternity Shoot with the two lovebirds.

Bb. Pilipinas-Supranational 2018 Jehza Huelar has reached full circle by now. When she finished her university degree a few years back, the next objective was to win a crown in the national pageant or land a lucrative job abroad – whichever came first. Last year, she represented the country in Miss Supranational so mission achieved.
And yesterday, she finally plunged into marriage with long-time beau Peter June “PJ” Simon (a PBA player with Magnolia Hotshots) and fulfilled yet another dream – to have a fairy-tale wedding.
I am so happy for these two!
Congratulations to PJ and Jehza Simon!

Dear readers, I need not give all of you a long list of credentials or heavy introduction on your Binibini 31 Jehza Huelar. As 2nd Runner-Up last 2016, she returned last year and reached Top 15.
For her third and final attempt, Jehza is once more at it before finally closing the chapters of her pageant career in the nationals.
“Tito Norman, sorry if I was quiet all this time. I fasted from social media during the last three days of submission for Bb. Pilipinas.”
So what really led to the decision?
“It was Sunday, January 7, when PJ (her boyfriend PBA player Nonoy Simon) and I discussed about the Bb. Pilipinas 2018 application. There was no drama or anything that would have lengthened the talk. When he gave me the blessing to join this year, I took the opportunity to apply the following day — which happens to be the final day of submission. I went to BPCI around lunchtime.
God’s plan for me really works mysteriously… it is not my plan to join this year…it is His plans…..and I believe in that.”
Short and sweet. Yes, your Binibini 31 Jehza Huelar is now committed to boyfriend PJ Simon (right photo). But it doesn’t mean that she can no longer aspire to become a Bb. Pilipinas Queen.
Consider the two as each other’s happy pill!
