UPDATE: On September 19, both Rainie and Ronghao updated their respective social media accounts to confirm that they are married. They both wrote, "We've received all your blessings. Thank you."
After four years of dating, celebrity couple Rainie Yang and Li Ronghao announced on July 11 that they are engaged.
A little over two months later, they were spotted by an eagle-eyed netizen in Hefei, China, at a government building, reportedly obtaining their marriage certificate. They were also seen holding hands at the main lobby of the city’s high-speed rail train station.
The photos spread like wildfire on Weibo before making it to other social networking sites.
Media outlets have tried to confirm the news with both Ronghao and Rainie’s respective labels, but they only responded hours later.
“We thank everyone for your concern,” read the statement from both agencies.
This has led many to believe that this is their tacit way of confirming that they are now husband and wife. The pair has previously denied rumours that were untrue, such as speculation of Rainie having a bun in the oven.
Rainie previously shared that she doesn’t see herself as someone who would “suddenly get married out of the blue”, although she admits that she wants to be like a normal person and settle down some day.
