After dating for awhile, Chen Xiao chartered a private yacht on the Seine in Paris last year while Michelle just thought they were just going on a dinner date. Little did she know, he had it all prepared to propose to her! He bought a 2 carat diamond ring and a 3D model of 'Xiaolongnü,' the character she played in the TV drama where they met. Completely taken aback by the surprise, she was so moved and said 'yes' to his proposal!

When asked about the marriage, Michelle was coy about the reason why she's marrying Chen Xiao. She told the media, "Because I want to marry him when I see him." In a magazine interview, she said even though she's so busy between wedding planning and filming, the two of them always find time for a little bit of romance. Chen Xiao recently learned how to make soup from an executive chef while filming for a TV show. Being the romantic that he is, he now takes time to make her some soup after a long day of work! "Coming home to a hot bowl of soup after filming all day makes me feel extremely lucky and happy," says Michelle.

Nearly a month until the actual wedding day, Chen Xiao said at an interview that he's ready to spend the rest of his life with Michelle because they have great chemistry. "First, we have the same surname - Chen. Second, the both of us are very easy-going - we don't like anything pretentious. Third, we both love to be a bit more simple and private," says Chen Xiao. "Michelle and I have one major thing in common, we tend to spend a little more time on things we care about and not give anything else much attention. Live simply, live happily."
