Why Sheila Sim Accepted Her Husband Deon’s Proposal In 6 Months



Sheila Sim may now be married, but the actress and model still prefers to go by her maiden name, thank you very much. Since she wed banker Deon Woo, 37, in January, only a few family members have teased her with her married title, “Mrs Woo”. “‘It sounds like what people would call my mother-in-law,” Sheila says with a laugh. “I’m definitely sticking to my own name, but I have a new couple name for us – the WooSims. It’s cute, right?”

Cute fits Sheila to a T: She laughs easily and heartily at our cover photo shoot at restaurant-club FOC Sentosa at Tanjong Beach. Her elfin features and down-to-earth charm make her instantly endearing, and she greets the crew with great big hugs.
