Chinese professional diver Guo Jingjing (郭晶晶) became an international sensation following her back-to-back gold medal wins at the 2004 Athens Olympics and 2008 Beijing Olympics, but in 2011, she quietly announced her retirement to start a family with Hong Kong businessman Kenneth Fok (霍啟剛). In November 2012, the couple tied the knot in Hong Kong, and they welcomed their first child in August 2013. Jingjing and Kenneth have a total of three children.
Marrying into one of the richest families in Asia, it is expected for Jingjing to live a comfortable life as a socialite. But the media were surprised to see how modest that Jingjing and Kenneth have been living, dining at a simple restaurant recently and eating hot pot with cheap ingredients.
A few days ago, the low-profile Jingjing and Kenneth shared a picture of their hotpot dinner. The simple and affordable ingredients they used shocked netizens. Their spread consisted of a beef balls, fish balls, and beef like regular families—a marked contrast from other celebrities and influencers who have been eating hotpot with expensive red king crab, American lobster, and abalone.
Netizens praised Jingjing and Kenneth for their down-to-earth setup, expressing that people with true wealth do not have the need to flaunt it.
