Buckle up K-drama fans because you’re in for a double delight, Song Joong Ki revealed that he is now married AND a future father! Yay!
According to Soompi, the 37-year-old Vincenzo star announced the news through his official fan cafe. In the letter that he wrote, he is nothing but grateful to his wife, 38-year-old British actress Katy Louise Saunders. A part of his letter reads:
“I have promised to continue life together with Katy Louise Saunders, who has been by my side supporting me and who I have spent valuable time with while cherishing each other, She has a kind heart, and she has lived her life passionately. She is a sensible and amazing person to the point that I revere her.
Thanks to her, I am becoming a better person.” The actor also said that they are now creating a happy family together.
The actor was embroiled in a dating rumor last December 2022 after being seen with a woman at an airport. This happened more than 3 years after his divorce from Descendants of the Sun co-star Song Hye Kyo. It’s been confirmed shortly by the actor’s agency.
South Korean paparazzi Dispatch claimed that Katy has been living with the actor since the Spring of 2022 in Seoul. Additionally, they reported that as soon as the couple found out she was pregnant, the actor asked her parents to come and take care of her while he was busy filming. The actor’s agency neither denied nor verified the claim stating that it is difficult to address anything as it is the actor’s private life.
How this big news flew under the radar still amazes me but I’m happy that in a world full of prying eyes, celebrities can still enjoy much-needed privacy. Congratulations to the newlyweds!
