Nowadays, it’s not everyday we see Hong Kong comedian and host Natalis Chan (陳百祥) and more often that not, he’s with his former actress wife Cecilia Wong Hang Sau (黃杏秀). This year, the couple celebrate their 43 years of marriage. The two appeared in great spirits with Natalis in a casual tee and his wife in a traditional Chinese blouse paired with jeans. Ceciila shared a photo of the two holding up a wine bottle that says 1979 and wrote the caption, “A friend gave me wine from the year I got married🙏🙏🙏 43 years 😃 I hope I can still have you along the way in the future”.
The couple who’ve been married with no kids for years have weathered financial troubles. The 71-year-old Natalis Chan had previously announced his intention to retire from his hosting career. However, he has postponed his plans due to colleague and friend Eric Tsang. He shared that not a lot of people know but during the financial crisis of 2008, Eric helped him out a lot. He said even though Eric probably doesn’t remember, he does and he’s more than willing to repay his gratitude. Hence, Natalis ended up hosting TVB’s annual Yan Oi Tong Charity Show (善心滿載仁愛堂) one more time.
