Having gone public with his relationship last October, Taiwanese actor Chris Wang announced at the 49th Golden Bell Awards that he is going to be a father. His girlfriend, Xiao Jian, who is also his manager, is already pregnant for four months.
While he revealed they will be getting married soon, the exact date has not been set. “We will register for marriage after the baby is born,” he said, calling the bundle of joy “planned and not accidental”.
The two have been working together for five years and are believed to have developed feelings for each other since then. From his assistant, Xiao Jian became his manager in 2012 but the two decided to suppress their feelings as they were afraid of fans’ opposition due to their incompatible statuses.
However, they were spotted in each other’s homes last October and their relationship came to light. Chris shared, “Being photographed made us face our feelings for each other. We officially got together last November and were still insecure for the first six months, but the struggles made our relationship stronger.”
Xiao Jian, who did not attend the ceremony last Saturday as she was unwell, will quit her job by the end of this month to focus on taking care of the unborn baby.
