Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 8) — Filipino-American model Kelsey Merritt will officially be a Victoria's Secret Angel.

The 22-year-old stunner announced Friday that she will walk the ramp at the prestigious Victoria's Secret Fashion Show this year.

"We did it, Philippines," Merritt said in a series of tweets where she thanked her fans for their unwavering support. The 5'9 fashion and commercial model is believed to be the first Filipina to walk the annual fashion show.

This is another dream come true for Merritt, who slayed in her photos when she worked for the brand in May.

"I'm freaking out. Somebody wake me up from the best dream ever," Merritt said on Twitter.

She also posted a video of when she first heard the news.

In 2016, Miss Universe 2012 first runner-up Janine Tugonon appeared in the Pink ad of Victoria's Secret. The Filipino beauty queen also tried out for the highly-anticipated runway show of the brand.
