When someone mentions Jet Li's wife, it's former screen beauty Nina Li Chi who people immediately think about. After all, they have been happily married since 1999 and have two daughters together.

What many people don't know is that this is Jet's second marriage, and that he was married to former Chinese actress Huang Qiuyan for three years before splitting up in 1990.

According to reports, the couple had met when they were both wushu students at the Beijing Shichahai Sports School. Despite Qiuyan being two years older than Jet, they got along well, and in June 1987, they quietly registered their marriage. Both their parents were not present at the solemnisation, and the couple did not have a fancy ceremony either.

In 1988, Jet decided to venture to the US to further his career, and Qiuyan, who was then seven months pregnant, gave up her showbiz career to be with her husband. She later gave birth to two daughters, Si Li and Taimi Li, who are now in their twenties.
