Gillian Chung Agrees to Marry Doctor Boyfriend

Gillian Chung (鍾欣潼) announced on social media today that she has accepted boyfriend Michael Lai‘s (賴弘國) proposal! Flashing a photo of her diamond ring, the 37-year-old singer/actress wrote, “This is the best gift for my Chinese birthday. Thanks for your love! Next stop is happiness!”

Shortly after meeting last year, Gillian sensed that 32-year-old Taiwanese doctor, Michael Lai, is her Mr. Right. Although the pair was frequently separated due to work and faced the challenges of a long-distance relationship, they made efforts to spend time together whenever they could. Gillian had praised Michael in an interview, “We have not known each other for very long, but he is very caring towards me. He makes me feel loved.”

A Ladies’ Man?

Due to his good looks, Michael is very popular with the ladies. Before meeting Gillian, Michael had been married for six months before getting divorced with his ex-wife. A photo of Michael in bed with a woman also circulated on the Internet. After dating Gillian, Michael and his classmate Wendy took a selfie together in which she referred to him as “Hubby”. Although the pair may be friends, they appeared to be very flirtatious towards each other.

All of Michael’s gossip does not bother Gillian. She said, “Everyone has a history and past. I don’t mind. As long as we like each other, then tolerance is most important. As long as [tabloid reports] don’t involve and impact his ex-wife.”

In an interview last month, Gillian had hinted that she wanted to get married and have a baby before she turned 40 years old. With her wedding dreams now coming true, it should not be too long before Gillian fulfills her baby wishes.

Friends Send Congratulations

After Gillian’s exciting engagement announcement, good friend Charlene Choi (蔡卓妍) responded, “I have a thousand words I want to say, but they are in my heart ❤️❤️.” Gillian immediately replied to Charlene, “Aside from him, you are also one of the most important people in my life. It’s really a thousand words in my heart too.”

Joey Yung (容祖兒) wrote, “Your happiness is our happiness. Love you.” Josie Ho (何超蓮) wrote, “Happy birthday and happy engagement!” Congratulations from Gillian’s friends continued to pour in.

  1. Wow, congratulations to Gillian! It was a short dating period, but guess she didn’t want to wait too long if she thinks Michael is “The One”!

    1. @jayne She probably wants to have kids, and being that she’s already in her late 30s, now’s a good time to start conceiving.

      That said, she still looks like she’s in her 20s (Charlene too)! Very happy for her, and hope he treats her right, despite his major “playboy” vibes. They look very physically compatible.

  2. That was fast, they’ve dated for roughly 6-7 months only! But congrats! Gillian seems to want to get married for a long time now. She and Tyler were also in talk of marriage too before they split. Glad she found the one though. 🙂

    1. @hannah yes she does. I never thought she was a great singer, or actress, but everyone deserves to be loved. Ever since the photo scandal, Gillian has been treated with nothing but indifference. When she tried to make a step forward in her career or love life, she always ended up three steps backward.
      she got hurt, humiliated and beat down, but she never failed to keep loving, and she kept her career going, come hell or hail. How could I not admire her willingness to kept her head above the murky water? I hope this young doc does not break her heart. This is so long overdue for Gillian, she deserves this long overdue happy ending, or beginning. I sincerely congratulate both of them.

  3. Congrats to Gillian! Hope she found her Mr. Right.

    Off-topic sort of, but wow, her fiance’s ex-wife was really cute!
