She said yes.
Actors Felicia Chin and Jeffrey Xu are officially engaged after the latter popped the question with a romantic surprise proposal at the Night Safari.
The pair have been dating for about seven years, and Felicia Chin, 37, revealed the happy news on her Instagram post with a sweet video that shows snippets of the engagement. She wrote, “We promised we will let you know so here we are. I SAID YES!”
According to the entertainment platform 8 Days, the actual proposal took place last month on Jul 29, 2022.
The ring in question also appears in the video — an oval-shaped blue sapphire stunner surrounded by diamonds. Jeffrey Xu, 33, revealed to 8 Days that the ring had cost a five-figure sum, and that he had actually had it made four to five years ago. He’d also enlisted the help of celebrity hairstylist David Gan to custom order the ring.
In a heartfelt speech before he got down on a bent knee, Jeffrey said, “I love you. I hope I can be the pillar in your life, the friend who listens to you, the boyfriend that you can rely on, and the husband who will always be by your side through thick and thin.”
“Can you let me join you in this new journey? No matter what lies ahead of us, I firmly believe that as long as we hold on to each other and don’t let go and turn our hearts to God, we can definitely triumph over everything.
“You are the greatest gift from God and I will surely treasure you fully.”
He had chosen to pop the question at the Night Safari because of their shared love for animals and often went there on dates. It’s also where Felicia Chin worked as a show presenter in her first full-time job. The intimate affair was attended by about 20 close friends and family including fellow actors Zhu Houren, Chew Chor Meng, Ang Junyang and Rayson Tan.
Regarding the time of the proposal, Felicia Chin shared, “I feel like every relationship goes through different journeys, and ours needed maybe a little more time, but I feel like every relationship has its own time and journey, and at the right time, it’s time for a new season (for us).”
As for the big day itself, it looks to be very soon, with the couple revealing that they’re hoping to have a wedding at the end of the year. Congrats!
