On June 3, Taiwanese actor Mike He (賀軍翔) surprised his fans with a heart-stopped announcement—that not only is he now a married man, but he is also the father of a four-month-old baby girl, “Mei-pao” (美寶), who was born in Guam.
The announcement, which he dropped on Facebook, immediately topped media headlines. “Although it’s raining heavily today, it is a good day. We have registered our marriage!” wrote Mike. “Four months ago, our precious daughter was born in America (that’s we we named her Mei-pao), and to see my daughter growing up so healthily, well, I want nothing more.”
Expressing that he has entered his next stage in life, the Devil Beside You <惡魔在身邊> actor also stressed that his “other half” does not belong in the entertainment circle, so he will not elaborate on her identity.
On June 13, Mike made his first post-baby and post-marriage appearance at an event in Taiwan. Despite his popular appearances in romantic idol dramas, Mike’s own relationship life has been quite dull. He said he is not a romantic person at all, and it wasn’t until the day of their marriage registration when he got down on one knee to propose.
Sharing that they’ve been in an on-and-off relationship for the past five years, Mike said, “After all this time, it’s always been her. She’s a great person. We’re great together.” To protect her identity, he decided to not take their relationship public. Privacy was also one of the reasons why the couple decided to give birth in Guam. Mike said he and his wife will eventually hold a wedding celebration, but will not disclose its details.
However hasn’t been all unicorns and rainbows from there. According to a gossip report posted yesterday, Mike and his wife’s marriage was shotgun. He was “forced” to marry her after she told him that she was pregnant with his child.
Mike immediately denied the claim. “What an amazing script,” he said. “It’s sheer nonsense and a claim with malice.” Despite his change in tone, Mike said he is not mad about the rumor.
“I’ve been through much more exaggerated rumors, such as marrying a man overseas. I shouldn’t be wasting my breath on this, but if I find out who started the rumor, I will definitely seek legal action.”
