Japanese singer and actor Akira, who is also Lin Chi-ling’s husband shared recently that he had important news to announce in September.
Following that, there was no news until now. It is said that the couple will be having an intimate wedding on 17 November at Lin Chi-ling’s father’s hometown in Tainan, Taiwan.
Straits Times quoted Apple Daily as saying that about 100 family and friends are invited to the afternoon ceremony followed by an evening party.
44-year-old Lin who is a Taiwanese model said via her representative that she is “really sorry that we aren’t able to invite everyone”.
Lin said that the decision to hold the wedding in Tainan was because she wants to share the same memories as her parents.
Lin announced her marriage to 38-year-old Akira back in June, giving a surprise to everyone.
Her mother was unwell so that’s why the couple had to tie the knot in a hurry because she wants to see Lin marry while she is still alive.
Rumours are swirling that Lin visited a fertility clinic so guests are likely to check for signs of pregnancy on the wedding day on 17 November.
“But the two of them are very healthy, so I am not worried,” said Lin’s father.
Previously when asked, Lin said she would like to have twins.
Lin has been seen often at functions and promotional events even though she said her career will slow down after marriage while Akira has been busy with work in Japan as well.
In China, Lin has many fans in the country and the wedding will be a good thing for Akira there.
Some Chinese netizens were not happy when they heard about the wedding because Akira is Japanese and the history of Japanese occupation in China back in World War II still linger.
Lin reportedly told her guests not to give the couple red packets but to give sensible gifts instead for the 17 November ceremony.
The guests are likely to show up with baby items. /TISG
