Casino tycoon Stanley Ho urges Joel Chan to marry his daughter Florinda

22 February 2013 / 3 years 8 months ago

Despite speculations that they would not last, Joel Chan and Florinda Ho, who happens to be the daughter of casino tycoon Stanley Ho, have managed to cross the two-year mark in their relationship.Yesterday, Ming Pao reported that Stanley has been pestering the couple to tie the knot, according to his third wife and Florinda's biological mother, Chan Yuen Chun.Almost 2 years ago, Joel and Florinda shocked the public when they announced that they were dating. This was partly due to the fact that Joel had been married when their love affair began. However, not only does it look like the couple’s relationship is steady as a rock, there may even be the not-so-distant sounds of wedding bells ringing, even though Florinda has denied that Joel has proposed to her in Portugal last August.The ever-supportive boyfriend, Joel has taken an indefinite break from his work, allegedly angering TVB for choosing love over career. He has been accompanying Florinda on her travels abroad. In between work, the couple spent plenty of quality time together, dispelling frequent rumors that they were on the verge of a break-up.Presently, Florinda’s mother disclosed that each time Stanley sees Florinda, he would pester his daughter to get married. Obviously, Stanley and his wife have already accepted Joel as his son-in-law. Chan Yuet Chun further revealed that they hope the young couple will stay with them after marriage.Perhaps the wedding date may already be set. Two days ago, Joel was spotted at a Wan Chai café with a guy friend. Attired from head to toe in black, his hair was slicked back, looking cool and suave in the cold winter. Shortly after, he bumped into TVB colleagues, Florence Kwok and Toby Leung who have just visited Bobby Au Yeung at the hospital. Observant reporters saw Florence shaking Joel’s hands.When asked if she was congratulating Joel on his marriage, Florence said, “We are colleagues and haven’t met for a long time. It’s the New Year so we just shake hands and wish each other well.‘
