There are many ageless wonders in showbiz. Seriously, just click here, here and here. But we have a feeling that Hongkong singer Alex To is in a league of his own.
Alex with Louis & Alex with Louis' son
Cantopop star Louis Cheung recently posted two photos on his Instagram. The first is a collage of two pics: one of him with Alex 30 years ago — he was eight then while Alex was 26 — and another of his lookalike son James with Alex taken in 2017.
Alex & Louis 2018
The second pic Louis posted is a recent photo he took with Alex, where both stars recreate their pose from 30 years ago. “1988, 2017, 2018, I finally waited long enough [to take] this photo. I wanted to act like I was that young again, but it seems like I’ve failed. Alex doesn’t need to act [young] ‘cos he hasn’t changed one bit. I’m so happy!” Louis captioned his post.
How old is he again?
Louis is right, you know. Alex, who is 56, doesn't seem to have aged much. So how has he managed to look so youthful? Maybe it's from all his years of high-octane dancing while asking people to take off their clothes (“Tuo diao! Tuo diao!” we know you know that song). Or maybe it's because Alex, or so we hear, has a habit of looking at his own reflection in the mirror and shouting, “25! 25! 25!” ’cos he believes that if he thinks he is 25 years old, he will look 25 years old.
Now excuse us while we go scream at ourselves in the mirror.
We'll have what he's having
Alex and his wife Ice Lee
Alex recently celebrated his sixth year wedding anniversary with his wife, who is a whopping 24 years his junior -- though you won't be able to tell the age difference from their photos together. He posted this sweet pic on his Weibo with this even sweeter message: "I married you because I want to see this smile every day. Here’s wishing us a Happy 6th wedding anniversary! #BecauseILoveYou"

You're never too old to become a father. Just ask Alex who became a first-time dad at the age of 54. His son AJ is now two.
