Henry Golding On How He Met His Wife On New Year’s Eve
When Henry Golding blew up in Hollywood after starring in “Crazy Rich Asians”, many have commented on how good he and Liv Lo look together. Couple goals anyone?
The lovebirds got married in 2016 but did you know they first met? During his recent appearance on “Live Kelly and Ryan”, the 32-year-old Malaysian revealed that it was actually Liv that made the first move.
Henry told Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest that their love story is old fashion (there was none of that swiping on dating apps). “We were in a club at New Year’s Eve. I saw from afar and she was like this wild cat and I was getting over from my hangover the day previous,” he recalled, adding that he didn’t have the energy to make the first move.
So she took charge.
“Halfway through the night, I think I was heading towards the loo and she just steps in my way and said ‘Why haven’t you said hello to me yet? I’m leaving tomorrow and you’re never going to see me again. What are you going to do about it?’” the handsome actor shared.
He took her number and when they went out for brunch the next day. “She lived in Tokyo and I lived in Singapore, so we did long distance,” said Henry. Watch the interview below:
Last year, the fitness guru also revealed what she initially did to grab Henry’s attention. “We met 1.1.11 in Singapore at a friend’s birthday party. I knew you had noticed me but didn’t introduce yourself. Disappointed, I tried all my craziest wildest efforts, including dancing on speakers, to grab your attention. If you weren’t going to speak to me, I knew I would have to. As I was leaving you walked behind me. Here was my chance. I had nothing to lose. I turned around and said ‘Hi, I am leaving and you’re never going to see me again. And so began our love story. Happy Wedding Anniversary,” she said.
In speaking with Harper’s Bazaar Malaysia, Mrs Golding also admitted how it felt to approach her future husband. “It took a lot of guts, but I was just drawn to him. I feel that he draws a certain spontaneity and spark, and it’s obvious that it drives me as well,” the Asian beauty told the publication.
He now calls her the “best woman in the whole universe”. Aw…
