Taiwanese model-actress Lin Chiling had her wedding ceremony on November 17 in her father’s hometown of Tainan. The 44-year-old registered her marriage with her 38-year-old Japanese popstar husband Akira on June 6.
Prior to the ceremony, Chiling released a statement on her Facebook, thanking the public for the congratulatory messages they have received.
The 44-year-old, who had been dating F4 member Jerry Yan on and off for the last 17 years, announced via Weibo and Instagram that she’s now married to 37-year-old Japanese boyband member Akira. The announcement stunned netizens as the pair were never even reported to be dating, let alone engaged and married.
While the wedding festivities were not open to the public, those living in Tainan waited outside their wedding venue and shouted their congratulations to the happy couple, wishing them a lifetime of happiness together.
After the ceremony, Chiling also updated her Instagram and Weibo accounts with photos of of her and her husband, along with this caption: “1117~ We’ll live a happy life together.”
