|Du Haitao and Shen Mengchen’s first appearance together at Happy Camp in 2016|
Today is the seventh day of the seventh month in the lunar calendar, which means today is the Qi Xi Festival! So, happy Qi Xi folks! Qi Xi is also considered as Chinese Valentine’s Day, and what better day to ask for your love’s hand than Valentine’s right?
Long time lovers Du Haitao and Shen Mengchen are rumoured to be engaged if ramblings from the Weibosphere are to be believed. The actress posted a cute photo of herself today on social media smiling happily with a giant bouquet of red roses beside her. The photo also showed her sitting at the back of a jeep decorated with big bunches of pink balloons in front. With all the romantic accoutrements, and the accompanying caption that says “If you love the right person, everyday is like an idol drama <hearts> I’m so blessed that I envy myself. Thank you my baby! And wishing everyone a happy holiday”, it’s no wonder that some Netizens jumped to the conclusion that the Happy Camp host finally popped the question to his long time love. Mind that these are just rumours though and even their staff also said that they’re not aware of the situation.
Chinese mythology says that the cowherd Zhi Nu will finally reunite with his beloved Niu Lang for just one day with an assist from a bunch of magpies to help bridge the two on Qi Xi, but when the time comes for Du Haitao to finally “put a ring on it”, not only will the magpies be unnecessary, their reunion won’t just be a once a year thing, but for always!
