According to People, Golding talked about his experience as a new dad in an interview with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. He said, “Every morning it’s like she comes up with something new, something exciting. She makes this look at you or she smiles. Every day is a joy.”

The new dad told People, “As soon as I finish this [movie], I’m going home. I know that this is the nature of the job, and Liv absolutely understands that as well.” He explained, “There’s no use pining over it because I’m here to work for us, but it doesn’t stop me sort of yearning to be home. I can’t wait until I get back.”

Henry Golding is married to fitness instructor Liv Lo

The British-Malaysian actor is as charming as his onscreen counterpart, Nick Young, in the hit movie Crazy Rich Asians. PopSugar refers to the 34-year-old as having a “swoon-worthy physique and lovable personality.”

In August 2016, Golding married Lo in an intimate ceremony in Malaysia. Lo recalled her first meeting with her now-husband, telling Her World, “Henry piqued my curiosity because he is tall and handsome, yet seemed really fun and down to earth.”

According to PureWow, the couple met on New Year’s Eve in 2010 when Lo boldly made the first move. While dancing in a club, she approached Golding and said, “Why haven’t you said hello to me yet? I’m leaving tomorrow, and you’re never going to see me again – what are you going to do about it?”

The pair hit it off immediately and started a long-distance relationship with her living in Tokyo and Golding in Singapore. Lo says the way Golding proposed was “unforgettable.” He booked a restaurant in Phuket, Thailand, and while the sun was setting and a string quartet was playing, he got down on one knee amidst the rocks on the beach and asked her to marry him.

Born in Taichung, Taiwan, Lo is a former television host for Fox Movies Asia. She is also the founder of FitSphere, a personalized exercise program that offers online tutorials for yoga and low-impact bodyweight workouts.

Now celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary, the couple is enjoying being parents. Golding, smitten with his wife, told People, “She’s so strong, she’s extremely loyal, and independent. I wouldn’t be able to do it without her, so it’s wonderful to be able to have this success, but also, it’s wonderful to be able to share it with her.”
