Etta Ng, the 19-year-old estranged daughter of famous martial arts film actor Jackie Chan, recently married her girlfriend Andi Autumn, a 31-year-old Canadian social media influencer.
The couple reportedly got engaged on April 29, 2018 and run a Canadian photo studio together. They married in Toronto, Ontario.
In a post on Ng and Autumn’s shared Instagram account, the couple wrote:
United by love & law. One our wedding day … if you never give up on love and you put all your heart into the family you’ve dream 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. 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 kind, it does not judge. Love is both strength and weakness. Lave can make change. Love wins! #lovewins #gaymarriage @lgbtq #fightforwhatsright #love #iloveyou #teamlove
Ng is the estranged lovechild of Chan and beauty queen Elaine Ng Yi Lei. Ng has claimed that her mother was abusive and alcoholic.
In a 2015 interview, Ng said of Chan, “He is not my dad. I have no feelings for him. He is my biological father but he is not in my life.” Ng’s mother claims that Chan has never “given a single cent” to Ng.
Chan never speaks of Ng to media. “Sometimes it is better to not talk about certain things,” Chan said when asked about his daughter.
Ng and Autumn made headlines in April of this year when they released a video stating that they were homeless in Hong Kong because of Ng’s homophobic parents. In response, Ng’s mother said that her daughter should find a job instead of trying to capitalize on her parents’ fame.
The lesbian couple is using their marriage to advocate for same-sex marriage and the healing of abused LGBTQ people.
In her personal post of her wedding (below), Ng wrote, “There is nothing greater than true love found … 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 undoubtably stronger than blood.”
Here are pictures of the couple.

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 undoutbly stronger than blood. 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.
