Hong Ling, Nick Teo go public with relationship

After over three years of keeping their romance a secret from the media, their managers and even their fellow artistes, the frequent co-stars finally confirmed everyone’s suspicions and came clean with their relationship status on Instagram on Wednesday morning.

“My best friend, my human diary and my other half. Thank you for accepting me for who I am, when I am not perfect”, wrote Hong Ling on her page, while Nick gushed, “The best love is the kind that awakens the soul. I want to be the only hand you ever need to hold.”

Congrats, you two lovebirds! It was about time.

What a sweet surprise indeed! On Friday, Kym shared a photo of her holding up a “Happy Anniversary” card from the SQ 326 cabin crew as she posed with the flight attendants. However, the notoriously private actress-host’s husband is nowhere to be seen in any of the shots. We guess he’s the one who took the pictures.
