Theirs is a love story that many didn’t see coming, yet it's also a tale as old as time.
Gigi Lai, 49, famously quit showbiz in 2008 to take over her brother’s skin care business after the latter was involved in a serious car accident that left him wheelchair-bound. It’s said that around this time, billionaire Patrick Ma, whose family owns Hongkong’s largest media group, the Oriental Press Group, swooped in and swept the beauty off her feet.
Though he's 15 years her senior, his sincerity and kindness towards her family won Gigi over, and in 2009, they got hitched to everyone’s surprise.
12 years later, the couple, who have three daughters, 10-year-old twins Pricia and Gianna, and Pagella, eight, are still as loving as ever.
