Yet another Mandopop heart throb off the shelves and this time round, its US born Chinese singer-songwriter, Wang Leehom.

The 37-year-old, who has all along kept mum about his love-life, posted a sentimental Facebook entry earlier on Wednesday (27-Nov) introducing his other half affectionately as his “Forever Love”.

“The past few years your comments here have often been about “hope you find your Forever Love”. I’m lucky to have met a girl to hold hands with and share my future. She’s not in the entertainment business so you don’t know her, but I also don’t want to create the opportunity for rumors so… her name is Lee Jinglei, she’s 27 years old and a graduate student at Columbia. Wangbaba & Mama love her and I hope you will too,” Leehom posted on his social media accounts.

As fans and media around the world were still trying to digest the shocking announcement, the talented singer-songwriter made another shocking statement, though his agent, the following day that he had registered for marriage with his girlfriend in New York.

Speaking to Taiwan Apple Daily, Leehom said it was not a whirlwind wedding as he has known his bride for 12 years. 27-year-old Lee Jinglei, believed to be of Japanese and Taiwanese descent, is a graduate student at Columbia University, an Ivy League university in New York. Fans speculate that the couple has been dating for nearly a year and a half and that Leehom proposed with a video clip he recorded at his recent world tour with fans saying “I Love You” in 37 languages.

Leehom, congratulations on finding your ‘Forever Love’!
