Michelle Yeoh, 60, marries partner Jean Todt, 77, 19 years after they got engaged

Michelle Yeoh, 60, marries partner Jean Todt, 77, 19 years after they got engaged

The Everything Everywhere All At Once actor got engaged to Todt just one month after they met

Everything Everywhere All at Once star Michelle Yeoh has married her partner Jean Todt 19 years after the ex-Ferrari CEO first popped the question.

And just think, Jason Segel and Emily Blunt tried to convince us that they'd been dragging their feet when they starred in The Five-Year Engagement back in 2012. Turns out they've got nothing on Yeoh and Todt.

The couple first met in 2004, when they crossed paths in Shanghai while Yeoh was doing publicity for Ferrari, where Todt worked as the CEO from 2004 to 2008.

One month later, Todt proposed, and Yeoh said yes. And that's how things stayed for the next 19 years - or, more specifically, 6,992 days. Until now.

On Wednesday (28 July), the pair finally tied the knot in a ceremony pictured in images shared by Formula One driver Felipe Massa, who shared photos from the couple's big day on Instagram.

The first snap shared in Massa's post featured a card which detailed Yeoh and Todt's love story, explaining: "We met in Shanghai on 4 June 2004. On 26 July 2004, JT [Jean Todt] proposed to marry MY [Michelle Yeoh] and she said yes!"

The story continued: "Today after 6,992 days on 27 July 2023 in Geneva, surrounded by loving family and friends, we are so happy to celebrate this special moment together!”

Another image shared by Massa showed him smiling with the happy couple, and Yeoh and Todt embracing as they celebrated their love.

In the final image, Yeoh and Todt were pictured standing at a table, surrounded by their wedding guests as they prepared to sign their legal marriage document.

Alongside the images, Massa wrote: "Happy marriage #JeanTodt & #michelleyeoh love you so much."

Yeoh's new marriage come after she split from Hong Kong business magnate Dickson Poon in 1991, after she left the acting industry to try and start a family with him.

Last year, Yeoh explained told Bustle she didn't feel 'pressure' from Poon to give up acting, but that she 'couldn’t understand how [she] could have a full [career while] being married'.

"As it turned out, I was unable [to have children]. And if I’m being honest with myself, I didn’t want for us to be bitter 10 years down the road," Yeoh continued.

"Because in Asian families, people want to have sons and daughters [because] they are an extension and a legacy. And when you have the realization [that you can’t have kids], you have to deal with it. You deal with the curveballs that are thrown at you.”

Yeoh has since gone on to star in movies including Crazy Rich Asians and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
