11 Singapore celebrity couples who found love at work!
These Singapore celebrity couples found their happily ever after at their workplace!
It is surprising how many people have found love at work.
Perhaps seeing each other for hours every day, dealing with common challenges, and sharing highs and lows, are often instrumental in bringing two hearts together.
Here’s taking a look at 11 Singapore celebrities who found love at work!
Fann Wong and Christopher Lee
Apparently, this power couple first met in 1995 in Brave New World. It was in Return of The Condor Heroes (1998) that they first acted as a couple. Since then, they have been paired together in many shows like Looking For Stars (2000) and Madam White Snake (2001).
And so, it wasn’t surprising that love blossomed between the two, and they got married in 2009. Their adorable toddler Zed just turned 3 on National Day this year!
Though they decided to never again play a couple onscreen after their marriage, Fann Wong and Christopher Lee are getting back together this year in Channel 8 drama Doppelganger (premiering in March next year), and Chinese thriller film Yi Nian (slated to open at the end of the year).
Joanne Peh and Qi Yuwu
This wasn’t love at first sight. In fact, most people were surprised when these two got together!
Though Joanne and Yuwu had worked together on a couple of Ch 8 dramas, and knew each other as friends for more than 10 years, sparks only started to fly during the filming of C.L.I.F. 2 (2012).
They had a quiet, private wedding at Sentosa in 2014, and welcomed their daughter Baby Qi in August 2015. Their second child, Baby Qi didi was born in April this year.
Kate Pang and Andie Chen
Kate Pang and Andie Chen first met while filming Ch 8 blockbuster Joys Of Life in early 2012, but it was only when they acted as lovers in Break Free later that year that they started developing feelings for each other.
They ended up dating secretly for over a year before announcing their marriage in November 2013. Their son, Aden was born in June 2014, while their daughter, Avery, arrived last June.
Diana Ser and James Lye
Diana Ser and James Lye first crossed paths in 1994 on the set of Showbuzz and Ser was supposed to be Lye’s co-host but was replaced at the last minute.
Ser ended up being the show’s research writer instead, a blessing in disguise as Lye decided to ask her out.
They got married in 2004, and today, are proud parents of three children – Jake, 11, Christy, 9, and Jaymee, 6.
Priscelia Chan and Alan Tern
2002’s Springs of Life brought Priscelia Chan and Alan Tern together, and they continued to be best friends for 6 years.
Tern finally ended up confessing his true feelings for Chan over an email, as he was worried if their friendship would be affected, if she were to reject his proposal!
They eventually got married in 2007.
Felicia Chin and Jeffrey Xu
Talk about unexpected beginnings.
Both Chin and Xu were winners of local talent hunt Star Search – she won in 2003 and he in 2010.
Felicia Chin and Jeffrey Xu got closer as friends on the set of period blockbuster The Journey: Our Homeland (2015), where they played mother and son!
Their feelings however intensified when they worked together on Ch 8 drama Life — Fear Not.
Last year, they finally revealed that they were seeing each other.
Candyce Toh and Ang Junyang
Ang Junyang and Candyce Toh started off as Project SuperStar contestants and rivals. They ended up getting married in 2009.
Junyang moved to Taiwan to pursue his career as a freelance producer and songwriter, while Toh remained in Singapore. Apparently, even though they were separated by distance, the couple would WhatsApp each other daily. Toh would also fly to Taipei once every three months to meet her husband.
Their “long-distance” romance finally ended when Junyang came back to Singapore for good during the final trimester of Candyce’s pregnancy.
Today, their little princess Azalea rules their lives.
Jesseca Liu and Jeremy Chan
Jesseca Liu and Jeremy Chan worked together on the set of the xinmsn web series, Who Killed The Lead, co-written by Jesseca, in 2014.
They started dating a year later, though the couple kept their relationship a secret and only went public about it in January 2016.
They had a dreamy, beach side wedding at Langkawi, in July this year.
Xiang Yun and Edmund Chen
Now, this one was a quickie.
Edmund Chen met Xiang Yun in the 1989 铁警雄风, a drama about traffic police. They ended up dating each other, and got married within just 3 months, in 1990.
Their marriage created some sort of a media furore, as celebrities getting married to each other was practically unheard of, back then!
Melody Chen and Randall Tan
Melody Chen and Randall Tan apparently first met on the set of The Donny Lee Show in 1996. Though they later acted as a couple in The Teenage Textbook Movie in 1998, they regarded each other more as siblings!
Chen went on to date others while Tan got married, but eventually divorced.
It was when Tan was struck by the debilitating nerve disorder Guillain-Barre syndrome in 2007 and was fighting to survive, that the couple discovered their true feelings for each other.
Today, after 9 years of marriage, the couple are expecting twins!
Andrea De Cruz and Pierre Png
A beautiful story, this.
Pierre Png was smitten when his eyes fell on Andrea De Cruz coming out of a hair salon with a new hairdo. But, he was attached back then.
Years later, they ended up working together on a play, and Png, then single, asked her out.
Tragedy struck the love birds in 2002, when De Cruz suffered from liver failure after consuming Slim 10 pills. Png, her fiance then, heroically donated part of his liver and saved her life.
They got married in 2003, amidst uncertainties that her body might one day reject the liver. For this reason, the couple don’t have kids.
Pierre Png was once quoted as saying, “Just seeing a smile on Andrea’s face, just knowing she’s alright and safe makes me very happy.”
