South Korean actor Song Joong-ki announces marriage with British Katy Louise Saunders and a baby underway.
Just a month after confirming his new relationship, South Korean actor Song Joong-ki has made another announcement about a life-changing event that surprised his long-time fans.
The 37-year-old revealed his marriage with British actress-model Katy Louise Saunders and announced that they are expecting a baby after being together for quite a while.
“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,” the actor wrote as translated by Korean online media Soompi from his official fan cafe.
Song continued to describe his new wife as someone who 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.”
Rumors of a budding relationship started when the pair were spotted at Incheon International Airport last month and reports were quick to dig into their history and revealed that they first met last year through a mutual friend, reported The Korea Herald.
Through extensive research, media reporters also found out that Saunders was apparently Song’s Italian language tutor during his filming for the 2021 drama series “Vincenzo,” where Song appeared as a lawyer working for the Italian mafia.
"We naturally dreamed of creating a happy family together. We have put in much effort to keep each other's promises, and we are sincerely thankful as a new life has come to us. And today, based on our deep trust and love for each other, we are on our way back from registering our marriage to begin life as a married couple. As we are now, the two of us will walk our days ahead beautifully while facing the same direction," Song added in his statement.
The actor, popularly known through hit projects such as “Descendants of the Sun” (2016), “Arthdal Chronicles” (2019) and “Vincenzo” (2021) and recent projects “Space Sweepers” (2021) on Netflix and JTBC series “Reborn Rich” (2022), has previously wedded his fellow "Descendants of the Sun" actor Song Hye-kyo in 2017.
Their union lasted 1.9 years after deciding to divorce, both kept mum on the reason behind their split — and now, three years later, Song will be entering another marriage with fans and friends alike hoping for a successful one, the second time around.
