How does actor Edmund Chen feel about daughter Yixin’s boyfriend?
The veteran actor admits he’s not used to the fact that his daughter is dating, but he does think that her boyfriend, Gavin Teo, is a great guy.
Daughters will always be daddy’s little girl, even for rising star Chen Yixin, whose father is veteran actor, Edmund Chen.
Edmund told Lianhe Zaobao in a recent interview that he is feeling a little down now that his daughter is dating. “She gave her heart to her boyfriend. I can't get used to it,” he said.
The 20-year-old actress is dating her The Teenage Textbook The Series co-star Gavin Teo. They became Instagram official in early March when Gavin posted a photo of them together with the caption, “missing this one”.
Edmund admitted that he still felt a little sad after reading media stories about his daughter’s relationship even though he already knew about it beforehand. He even joked that he used to be the number one man in his daughter’s heart, but his spot has been taken over by her new beau.
Yixin previously revealed that she didn’t date while in school because her family was very protective over her and her dad confirmed that he did tell her when she was around 16 years old that “she can't date too early".
However, it seems that he does approve of his daughter’s plus one, complimenting Gavin as a great guy and advising the young couple to take their time with the relationship.
