Meeting Grace Chan Made Kevin Cheng Want to Get Married

Touted as one of the most beautiful Miss Hong Kong winners in recent years, Grace Chan’s (陳凱琳) career was off to a promising start. Despite mediocre reception to her acting skills, Grace was nonetheless given many opportunities to star in meaty roles at TVB. While filming Blue Veins <殭>, fireworks sparked between Grace and Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎). Although the relationship received backlash and many felt that it would not last due to their 22-year age gap, the couple proved naysayers wrong. After tying the knot in 2018, the couple soon welcomed their baby boy, Rafael, forming a happy family of three.

With a rich dating history, Kevin was notoriously known as an eternal bachelor in the entertainment circle. Apart from the couple’s age difference, many were surprised about Kevin’s decision to finally settle down. Other than his publicly-acknowledged six-year relationship with Linda Wong (王馨平), Kevin has never admitted to any other relationship, despite having been romantically linked to Niki Chow (周勵淇), Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼), and Sharon Chan (陳敏之). Although he never admitted to any of these relationships, Kevin openly shared about his relationship with Grace with the public.

During an interview, Kevin once expressed, “Many years ago, I told my mother that I may not get married at all during my lifetime. When I met her [Grace], everything changed!” Kevin has not been shy about expressing his happiness with Grace. Merely a year into their relationship, Kevin admitted that he saw Grace as “the one” and proposed to her. Although he saw her as an ideal marriage partner, Kevin was willing to wait for Grace to push her career further before getting married.

  1. Sure, they love each other alright, but the real reason he rushed to marry her is she got pregnant.

  2. Honestly, he’s not getting any younger and a pretty & MUCH YOUNGER Ms. HK shares the same vibe? Come on, he’s the much luckier one if you ask me. lol….haha and a 22 yo difference? My lord!

    1. @wm2017
      I think it is a win win for both of them. He was her idol and she dreamed of marrying him and her wish has come true. That is very rare for a fan to be able to marry their idol. He was able to marry a younger girl that admired him since she was young so they both got what they wanted.

  3. they are in stable marriage right now. Time will tell since 22 yrs difference in age gap.

    1. @sutet108 correct. give it another, oh, decade or so, and we’ll see if they’re still together. once guys hit 60+, a lot of their personalities change. grace won’t know what hit her till he’s 75 and she’s a young 48 years old.

      1. @coralie Well, celebrity marriages don’t typically have a long shelf life, anyway, so is they’re able to stay committed for 10 years, I’d actually consider that a pretty run! haha

        Heck, even a lot of real life marriages these days don’t last that long.

        Overall though, I agree that Kevin got the better end of the stick in this arrangement. He can romanticize it all he wants, but it’s not hard to see why he instantly saw her as “the one”. lol

        It truly depends as even regular citizens have short marriages. But lasting is one thing.. However, being happy and blissful is a different story. I think it is a win win situation for them both. Kevin could have married someone else besides her too. It is not like she was his only choice.

      3. @oystergirl true, a lifetime for a celebrity marriage can be as long as two years. not shelf-stable at all. so who’s to say they won’t divorce a few years down the line?

        i agree with your point about kevin. it doesn’t take a genius to figure out why he suddenly had that revelation about her being “the one” lol. i’m sure he’s only after her personality, nothing to do with her age or purity lol.

    2. @sutet108
      Success in marriage is not just due to age and age gaps. They may be happy until old age, who knows? Having a happy and successful marriage takes many things. But yes, 22 years a huge age gap is big and that may affect them in the long run. However, time will tell…

  4. Still think the age gap is too much…. he is getting old lol
    he might be dead by 75… while shes only 53 :/

      You never know as my late grandma lived until 100. What if he lives a longer life than expected or she is the one that passes away first due to illness or something like that, who knows?
