9 Things To Know About Liv Lo, The Real-Life Mrs. Nick Young, Plus A Gallery Of This Goals-Worthy Couple!
Henry Golding, a.k.a. the Malaysian talent that plays the super eligible bachelor Nick Young in Crazy Rich Asians, is very much taken. He's been married to Liv Lo since 2016, and in every way, she really is the Rachel to his Nick! Read on to learn nine things about the beauty that captured this man's gaze—and heart—for life!
She made the first move
This handsome couple met at a party on January 1, 2011, where "met" should be used loosely. Henry noticed her, she noticed him notice her, yet he made no move. Time passed and still no introductions made until it was time for Liv to head out. Before making her final exit, she broke the ice and talked to him, saying, “Hi, I am leaving and you’re never going to see me again."
Her confidence must have lit a fire in Henry's core, as they wed five years after!
Liv is quite the celebrity, too
Don't mistake Henry as the only bankable half of this power couple. 33-year-old Liv is just as successful in her own right as a TV host, yoga instructor, model, and bona fide fitness buff. Her 97,000-strong Instagram following should definitely be enough to prove her clout.
She's biracial, and extremely proud of her mixed heritage
It's one of the reasons why she was extra proud of her husband for starring in such a meaningful film about culture and race. Liv is of Taiwanese and Italian descent, she speaks three languages (English, Mandarin, and Japanese) fluently, and was raised by her mom and stepdad who was from Hong Kong. Having lived in Japan, Taiwan, and Singapore, as well as being exposed to people of various backgrounds, cultural diversity and acceptance are something this stunner feels strongly about.
She was proposed to on the beach
And it was an instant "yes!" It happened all so romantically during their fourth anniversary trip to Thailand. He got the works together; champagne, a lovely view of the sunset, and the perfect words to say to the woman he wished to spend the rest of his life with.
She got married in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia
With a wedding as beautiful as theirs, it can be a little hard to believe that she was incredibly relaxed about all her preparations leading up to the big day. Once saying that she and Henry simply trusted their guts to lead the way, Liv simply enjoyed her last few days as a single woman and was all smiles, zero stress, in the ceremony. Her off-shoulder Vera Wang gown in ivory definitely helped bring out her bridal glow, too.
Cannot believe it has been a year... Happy anniversary my queen. This has been one of the craziest of both our lives and I could not have done it without you. You are my greatest motivation and the best companion I could ever wish for. Love you more and more everyday, here's to our endless adventure x
She enjoys her time away from Henry
Interestingly, Liv reveals that she appreciates the fact that sometimes work or other personal commitments take her attention. Having other preoccupations allows her to nurture herself as an individual while making her more appreciative of her partner who understands and agrees with this. In Liv's book, there's no need to spend every waking hour with your significant other to prove that you love them!
Liv isn't grossed out by durian
It's a silly fact, but one that many of her and Henry's fans have wondered about! Having grown up in countries where the tropical fruit is aplenty, this healthy eater has gotten used to it.
Her relationship role models are her parents
Liv's parent's have been together almost 40 years, and Henry's for almost just as long. She's a firm believer in the things that kept her mom and dad together and happy after all these years, like constant openness and the willingness to keep learning about one's partner even when much time has passed.

Her advice to couples is to love spontaneity
Keep things fresh, she suggests, because in this day and age, things move incredibly fast and interest can wane. But that piece of advice comes with a follow-up; you shouldn't have to work too hard for relationships to feel great. When you're with "The One," or someone you think might be him (or her), spontaneity will come naturally and best of all, come from both sides!
