Mario Ho (何猷君), the 17th son of Macau casino tycoon Stanley Ho (何鴻燊), successfully proposed to Chinese supermodel Ming Xi (奚夢瑤) today. Mario booked three floors of the L’Avenue Mall in Shanghai to deliver the fairy-tale proposal. Kneeling down on one knee on stage, Mario asked Ming Xi to marry him under the witness of over 1000 family and friends present.
Shouting out “I love you” multiple times, Mario said emotionally, “You’re the woman I deeply love! You’re very considerate towards me and share my burdens. You’re a very innocent child. When I’m with you, I feel very safe and don’t have to worry that you’ll hurt or lie to me. I know what you’ve done for me is 100% sincere. After this, what is mine is yours. Whatever stress and anxieties you bear, I’ll help you resolve them. Spending our days together is the greatest joy in my life. Do you remember that in Macau, you asked if we would be together? Today, the question has changed to, ‘Little Ming, do you think we’ll always be together?’ Ming Xi, marry me?” When Ming Xi said yes and Mario slipped the ring on her finger, the crowd erupted into loud cheers.
Is Ming Xi Pregnant?
Twenty-four-year-old Mario and 30-year-old Ming Xi dated for two years. It was rumored that Ming Xi is currently pregnant, which prompted Mario’s eagerness for marriage. Although Ming Xi showed a slight belly bump in photos snapped by reporters, the model interestingly posted photoshopped photos of herself without any belly bulge when announcing her engagement on social media.
Mario’s mother, who is the fourth wife of Stanley Ho, claims that she doesn’t know if Ming Xi is pregnant or not.
Photos of Proposal Site Leaked One Day Before
Since Mario wanted an elaborate proposal and asked for 99,999 roses to decorate the L’Avenue, the mall’s staff had to work overtime hours until 5 a.m. to get the site ready. Photos of the decorations surfaced one day before Mario’s actual proposal. Mario revealed his plans, “Luckily, I took Little Ming’s phone when I returned home, or else the surprise that I’ve been planning for a month would have been spoiled by all of you.”
The proposal had attracted a large crowd waiting to see Ming Xi walk through the heart-shaped flower structures.
Good news is happening one by one in the Ho family. Earlier, Mario’s sister Laurinda Ho (何超蓮) confirmed she is dating Mainland actor Shawn Dou (竇驍). And Mario and Ming Xi’s engagement today caused a stir; many congratulations poured in for the couple and the Ho family.
