In the many years since 36-year-old Jay Chou (周杰倫) made his entertainment industry debut, he has mostly kept details about his personal life under wraps. However, on the eve of his extravagant wedding in Yorkshire, England, he finally accepted an interview from a Taiwanese news source, in which he poured out his heart about his newly wed wife, 21-year-old Hannah Quinlivan (昆凌).
In the interview, Jay revealed that the moment he first laid eyes on Hannah, he “really admired her.” This opinion is shared by his mother and grandmother, both of whom readily approved of his relationship with Hannah.
Jay even proudly joked that when they started dating, his mother “fell in love with someone else,” since she would always be more concerned about Hannah than she was about him. “She had already identified [Hannah] as her daughter-in-law a long time ago,” he said, adding that after the wedding, he and Hannah will live with his mother.
A Perfect Match in Personalities
Although the newlyweds share a 14-year age gap, Jay feels that their personalities are actually very suited to one another. The only area in which they hold a difference in opinion is their movie preferences, which is why Hannah will always ask him if he wants to accompany her to a movie. If he does not express interest, then she will watch the movie with her friends.
Perhaps because their personalities mesh so well, the couple rarely argued during their four years of dating. Jay shared that this was one of the reasons he cherished their relationship so much, especially since he was well aware that his significant other would face many difficulties, from listening to negative public opinion to conforming to his busy work schedule.
Plans to Have Five Children
Asked when he decided to take Hannah as his wife, Jay revealed that he once went through a severe flare-up of ankylosing spondylitis, a hereditary spine inflammation disease. When he was in deep pain, he was touched by how Hannah would silently accompany him even at his weakest moments, and he decided then to marry her.
As for his and Hannah’s future plans, Jay announced that he would like to have five children. He plans to be more relaxed with his sons and treat them like his friends. On the other hand, he will stricter with his daughters, though he will surely worry about them more.
