From Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to David and Victoria Beckham, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill and then Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, there are many celebrity couples that many have come to fall in love with through the years. Henry Golding and Liv Lo is yet another couple that is gradually making it to the list. Although Liv Lo is a TV host, model, and a yoga instructor, she has become more popular to the world outside of Taiwan and Japan as the wife of Golding.
Who Is Liv Lo – Henry Golding’s Wife?
It was on May 21, 1985, in Taichung, Taiwan that Liv Lo was born to a Taiwanese mother and an Italian father. However, she considers herself as a complete Taiwanese.
Liv was brought up by her mother and adopted father, Richard Lo who is from Hong Kong. As regards her biological father, he had never been involved in her life. In fact, she has never met him.
She was raised alongside her sister, Leeza Pazkowski in Taichung, in a household that spoke more than one language. She remained there until the age of 17 when she was wooed into the fashion industry. Since that age, she was mostly independent. Owing to the fact that the modeling agency she was with (in Taiwan) had many girls, she worked very hard and that helped her to later move to Japan
Lo took advantage of her modeling in Japan to attend Temple University from where she got a Mass Communication degree. Even while combining her education and career, she was able to rise to become one of the top models in Japan.
Before she started school, her stars had already taken to the skies as she was appearing in magazines and dominating the runway. Also, she got to work as a TV reporter for FOX TV Japan.
Parents and Ethnicity
One of the things known about Lo is that she is very close to her parents. Of Euro-Asian ethnicity, she was, as earlier stated, raised by her Taiwanese mother and her adopted father who is from Hong Kong.
When she was a child, she traveled a lot with her parents and sisters because her father was a music producer and his job required him to. They went everywhere that he had work to do in Asia, so the family lived in different places including Japan, China, and Hong Kong before they finally settled in Taiwan.
Thanks to the influence of her parents, she grew up a free spirit who was not afraid of trying different things such as forming all-girl hip hop dance troupe with her pals, playing sports (badminton and basketball), and rollerblading. It was after all these that she settled as a model.
Liv Lo and Henry Golding
Just as Liv and her husband are quite unique from most other couples, so also is their love story. Before their paths ever crossed, Lo was having a successful modeling career in Japan where she lived. However, after meeting him, her priorities shifted and she moved to Singapore to be with her then British-Malaysian boyfriend, Golding.
The first time that the couple met was on the new year day of 2011 in Singapore while celebrating the birthday of a mutual friend in a restaurant. The actor caught the eyes of the lady who would later be his wife thanks to his good height and looks which were complemented by his down-to-earth disposition.
Lo tried as much as possible to grab the attention of Golding who although noticed her, did not make any attempt at introducing himself. Having failed at getting him to talk to her, she decided to make the first move when it was time to go and so as he walked behind her, she turned and told him she was leaving and he was never going to see her again. That was how their love story began.
Four years down the line when they were in Phuket, Thailand, Henry Golding proposed to Lo and she accepted. In 2016, the couple became husband and wife in Malaysia. The ceremony held in the hometown of Golding in Cove 55 resort, Sarawak, in the presence of their families and close friends.
The couple now lives in Singapore where Liv Lo works.
