Late last week, Taiwanese actress Alyssa Chia attended her eldest daughter Angel’s middle school graduation ceremony in Shanghai, China. The actress’s husband, Taiwanese actor Xiu Jie Kai, was also there to congratulate his stepdaughter on her graduation.
Apart from Alyssa and Jie Kai, Angel’s father, Chinese businessman Sun Zihao, and his current wife, Taiwanese model-actress Novia Lin, also attended the ceremony. Alyssa and Zihao were married for five years before filing for divorce in 2010. Angel is the ex-couple’s only child together.
At a promotional event earlier this week, Jie Kai was asked about the graduation ceremony, where he revealed that it was his first time meeting Zihao.
“[It was] our first time meeting; [the ceremony] is a very important moment for the child, and she was the main focus [that day]," he shared.
Looking back on the first time he met Angel, Jie Kai reminisced, “We met when she was eight years old, and I would nag at her. Now, she’s all grown up, and I treat her more like a friend.”
The actor continued on to share that he had attended the graduation ceremony as he wanted to be able to help celebrate an important moment in Angel’s life, and that it was not awkward crossing paths with Alyssa’s ex-husband.
“We all took a big group photo together afterwards, but we did not get together for a meal, as we had other schedules after that,” Jie Kai said.
