Jackie Chan's daughter marries her lesbian lover

Local | Sophie Hui 27 Nov 2018

Action star Jackie Chan Kong-sang's daughter Etta Ng Chok-lam has married her lesbian partner Andi Autumn in Canada.

The 19-year-old made the announcement via a post yesterday morning on Instagram. She also uploaded a photo of herself with her 31-year-old partner as they held together their marriage certificate.

The certificate showed that they tied the knot on November 8.

"We have all been hurt but if you can dream of love, you can find it," the couple said.

"Love is kind, it does not judge. Love is both strength and weakness. Love can make change. Love wins."

Ng revealed on her Instagram account that she and her partner had returned to Hong Kong.

"There is nothing greater than true love found. With love we've returned. My home is Hong Kong, a beautiful city full of life and passion," she said.

Autumn later uploaded a video of their wedding in which they were both attired in white as they exchanged vows and rings, and as they happily hugged each other.

The couple's comments on the Instagram post supported same-sex marriages that came on the heels of Taiwanese voters' rejection in a referendum last Saturday to legalize same-sex union. The referendum showed the majority in Taiwan supported restricting marriage to one man and one woman, but they approved allowing same-sex unions under a separate measure outside the marriage law in the Civil Code. Ng's mother, former beauty queen Elaine Ng Yi-lei, declined to make any comment on her daughter's marriage.

She updated her Weibo account yesterday afternoon with a photo that showed her having lunch with a friend. She said she appreciates that life had given her numerous experiences, thus enriching her performances.

At about 3pm, she told reporters that she had met the couple recently.

Asked if she would give her blessings to the newlyweds, she said: "Everyone would like to see others doing well, so why shouldn't we give people blessings?"

She said her daughter is her best friend forever, but did not say if she will take her back to her home again.

The mother-and-daughter relationship has caught media attention.

Last October, the 19-year-old announced she was a lesbian and moved out of her mother's flat to live with Autumn.
