Actors dating actors isn’t new by any means, but for Gavin Teo, 26 and Chen Yixin, 21, there was the added level that her parents, were also actors. And not just any actors, Chen is the daughter of veteran actress Xiang Yun and former actor Edmund Chen.
The two have been dating for about two years, but they only confirmed their romance and went Instagram official in March.
In an interview published on entertainment portal 8days.sg, Teo revealed that the first meet-the-parents session went very well. He had previously worked with her mum and older brother Chen Yixi on drama My One In A Million, so the only hurdle was her dad, who is known to be extremely protective of his daughter.
