Already married, but Nicky Wu proposes to wife Liu Shishi with diamond ring to prove he's no cheapskate

5 June 2015 / 1 year 4 months ago

Although they are officially married, Nicky Wu recently went down on bended knee to 'propose' to Chinese actress Liu Shi Shi, this time with a diamond ring.

AsiaOne via Apple Daily Taiwan reported that on June 1, Taiwanese actor Nicky Wu flew to Shanghai to surprise his wife on the set of an ad she was shooting. In photos posted on social media, Wu is seen presenting the ring to Liu before posing for photos together.

The pair wed in a civil ceremony in January this year after dating for more than a year. Their romance generated a buzz due to their wide age gap - Wu is 44 and Liu, 27.

They had announced their union on social media, showing off their wedding bands and marriage certificate.

According to reports, netizens criticised Wu for skimping on an engagement ring for his wife-to-be despite earning millions a year.

His latest effort is seen as a bid to redeem himself for the missed proposal. His manager confirmed Wu had planned the surprise, and egged on by friends on set, went down on bended knee for the 'make-up proposal'.

In addition to the ring, Wu also got her a cake and they blew out the candles together. Pictures showed their faces flushed from consuming alchohol at the celebration, with the "lovey-dovey" pair reportedly still behaving like a dating couple.

Wu and Liu had earlier stated that they may hold their wedding banquet at the end of the year, but reports say they have been too preoccupied with work to plan the event or even shoot their pre-wedding photos.
