Taiwanese singer Jay Chou has announced that he will be getting married on his 36th birthday next year to his model fiancee, Hannah Quinlivan after dating her for four years.
During a press conference of his newest album, "Aiyo, Not Bad" on Dec 23, the 35-year-old Chou confirmed the date of his wedding to 21-year-old Quinlivan on Jan 18, 2015.
However, he denied proposing to Quinlivan, who is Taiwanese-Australian, at Hyde Park in London and commented that the proposal must be in a "secret place".
When asked if he had already proposed, Chou said the public will know when Quinlivan is spotted with the "important keepsake" on her hand.
According to Mandarin news website China News, Chou was quoted saying that it was very "tiring to plan everything including the outfits and the music" for the wedding and work on his new album simultaneously.
Chou revealed in Nov at a separate press conference that he will be holding two wedding banquets - one in Taiwan and another overseas.
During a talk show featuring the couple in late Nov, Quinlivan talked about the first time they held hands, reported China Times.
It was at a horror movie and she was shielding her eyes with her hands. That was when Chou pulled her hands down and held them, she said, drawing screams of delight from the show's crew.
In Nov 2014, Chou shared, for the first time, photos of him and Quinlivan in the lead-up to his rumoured wedding at that time.
That was the first time the singer has opened up about his love life. He kept mum about his romance with Jolin Tsai, even after it ended in 2005 amidst reports that he left Tsai for host Patty Hou.
