GCP Managed Certificates possible in Kong Ingress?

Is there a way to use a GCP Managed Certificate with a Kong Ingress? I tried this:

apiVersion: extensions/v1beta1
kind: Ingress
  name: demo
    kubernetes.io/ingress.class: kong
    networking.gcp.io/managed-certificates: my-managed-certificate

It didn’t work, maybe not too surprising if kong doesn’t notice that gcp-specific annotation.
But does anyone know if this is supported? I find the gcp managed certs convenient. I can switch to the LetsEncrypt ones if I have to but that’s a second choice for me.

A quick read on Managed Certificates and it seems they would only work if you use GKE Ingress Controller.
Kong (and a lot of other Ingress Controller) only support secret-based certificates.
