MANILA – It seems that 2017 is a great year for TV host Laura Lehmann and her boyfriend, basketball player Von Pessumal.

Things are still “surreal” for Lehmann after winning the Miss World Philippines 2017 crown over the weekend. 

Pessumal, who is part of the Gilas Pilipinas basketball team, got a gold medal during the 29th Southeast Asian Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. 

“Nice crown you got there… Go conquer the world,” Pessumal told his girlfriend in an Instagram post on Monday.

One of the things that Lehmann and Pessumal have in common is a love for sports. Lehmann started out as a courtside reporter for Ateneo de Manila University, while Pessumal used to be a member of the Ateneo Blue Eagles. 

Lehmann continues to appear on ABS-CBN Sports as a host, while Pessumal plays for the PBA.

Here’s a look at some of their sweet moments together, as shared on social media:
