Zhou Xun and Archie Kao Announce Marriage at Charity Show
Zhou Xun (周迅) surprised the audience with a sudden marriage announcement during the One Night Children’s Charity Event in Hangzhou on July 16. Appearing onstage in a white wedding gown beside her boyfriend, Chinese-American actor Archie Kao (高聖遠), she held hands and loudly declared, “We are married!” Having publicized their dating relationship earlier in May, the couple was speculated to tie the knot soon.
Zhou Xun attended the charity event with many other singers as a guest star. The audience thought her time to shine was over after she sang two representative solos onstage. However, when Chen Kun (陳坤) later performed “Heart Sutra” <心經>, Zhou Xun reappeared in a Chanel wedding gown to announce her exciting wedding news. Zhou Xun and Archie hugged, kissed, and put on their rings. Shocked fans quickly rushed to congratulate the couple.
According to sources, the wedding took place in Hangzhou’s Dragon Hotel. The couple chose Hangzhou as the location since it is close to Zhou Xun’s family home and is convenient for her relatives.
Since Archie grew up in the United States, his Chinese skills were limited. However, Archie wanted to express his love for his wife in a meaningful way. Archie announced, “I want to say that the most important thing is love. Love allows all of us to be here right now, and it allows my wife and I to get together. I’m done with speaking Chinese.” He then continued his speech in English and thanked his family and friends for attending.
When it was Zhou Xun’s turn to speak, she revealed, “I have known Archie for over a year, and I would like to thank God for letting us meet. Not long ago, I accepted his proposal. We are extremely happy to be surrounded in this loving atmosphere today. It is amazing to mix our love and share it with everyone. I have portrayed a bride in many films and have expressed several vows, but tonight I will finally say my very own version.”
Speculations that Zhou Xun is pregnant spread quickly as soon as her marriage news surfaced. However, an insider was quick to deny the rumors and shared that she still has work plans scheduled for the rest of the year. Disproving the pregnancy rumors, Zhou Xun wore three-inch high heels and drank a glass of champagne at the afterparty with friends to celebrate her marital bliss.
