Not many female celebrities have the confidence to post a photo of themselves online without make-up but fortunately for Alyssa Chia, she has the unyielding support of her loving husband, Xiu Jie Kai.
The 42-year-old Taiwanese actress uploaded a photo of herself taken by Jie Kai with her hair tied up in a bun and completely barefaced on her Facebook yesterday (July 13). She wrote in the caption, “Mr Xiu doesn’t like me with make-up… He thinks that make-up is unnecessary and it’s a burden, simplicity is best [to him]”.
But she followed up with a hashtag, “Women will still love themselves with make-up regardless of what men say,” which her fans agreed with.
The actor had previously sang praises of his wife’s beauty during his interviews. “She looks pretty in any kind of make-up but she looks the best without it. I told her to head out barefaced before, but she felt too insecure,” he shared.
The enviable couple is currently travelling between countries to film Chinese television program, The Amazing Race China and made a stop in Singapore this week. They were spotted filming at The Merlion and Jie Kai even posted a photo of themselves posing at Changi Airport with the caption, “Flying off to the next stop, bye Singapore!”
Jie Kai and Alyssa registered their marriage in 2015 before welcoming the arrival of their first child together, BuBu, in the same year. The actress gave birth to their second daughter, BoBo this March. She also has an elder daughter, Angelina from her previous marriage with Sun Zhihao.
