Jackie Chan’s daughter Etta Ng has married her partner Andi Autumn.
The lesbian pair tied the knot on November 8 in Toronto, Canada, revealing the news in an Instagram post which saw them pose in white with their wedding certificate.
Using their joint account, the newlyweds wrote on Monday (November 26) that they were “united by love & law ♡,” adding that “if you never give up on love and you put all your heart into the family you’ve dreamed of, an open mind and warm heart will guide you to happiness.”
“We have been in the pursuit of happiness the day we were born. Abused as children who never felt love, we have so much to give,” Ng and Autumn continued.
“We have conquered our fears, accepted our faults, and now we understand that the people who hurt us are hurting still. We have all been hurt but if you can dream of love, you can find it.
“Love is undoubtedly stronger than blood”

“Love is kind, it does not judge. Love is both strength and weakness. Love can make change. Love wins!”
Jackie Chan’s daughter Ng and Autumn revealed earlier this year that they were homeless and desperate for help in an emotional video, but it seems that the newlyweds’ fortunes have changed for the better since that appeal, which was met with hate from many commenters.
Etta Ng and Andi Autumn return to Hong Kong
After the wedding, Ng—who came out last year—revealed they had decided to live in Hong Kong, writing on Instagram: “There is nothing greater than true love found. With love we’ve returned.
“My home is Hong Kong, a beautiful city full of life and passion. Home is where love is. Home is safety and I know too many that do not feel safe within the environment they were given but the new tide is rising.
“A home is with the family that you can choose and with that we are never alone. Love is undoubtedly stronger than blood,” Jackie Chan’s daughter added.
“Everyone deserves love and not until I felt love can I be sure that understanding, connecting, attention and love in the face of hate can heal the most depraved of hearts. Love always wins. Always.”
Autumn said that when it came to her and Ng, “love has opened our eyes, opened our minds, and our hearts can feel whole. With this love, comes unbelievable strength and confidence to ignore our own pain, shut down our ego, and know exactly who we are and what we want.”
She added that 19-year-old Ng “has given me the gift of being my true self and it’s so hard to explain the change I feel.
“I’m no longer scared, I no longer have to find coping mechanisms to get through an hour of the day. My whole life I thought I was toxic, she made me realise I was surrounded by negativity.
“Now that it’s gone, this new feeling has taken over and I now know I deserve just as much as the world has to offer. And guess what? WE ALL DO!”
The 31-year-old Instagram star called her wedding to Jackie Chan’s daughter the “happiest day of my life.”
Followers delighted with Jackie Chan’s daughter’s news
Ng and Autumn’s declaration was greeted with joy and wishes of love and happiness from their fans.
One commenter wrote: “U deserve all the love, it might came a little bit late, u will have a much better life with you believing things. Carry on, be u. Congrats!”
Another fan said: “ Best wishes! Stay safe, Love each other and live! ”
And yet another well-wisher wrote: “Congratulations! Love shouldn’t be a burden to anyone by hurting them. Love is not through prejudice, not bias, not playing guilt tricks nor emotionally blackmailing.
“Wish you all the best and may God bless you always.”
