Who Is Liv Lo? New Details About Henry Golding's Wife

The wife of Henry Golding.

If you saw the movie Crazy Rich Asians, chances are you went home and immediately looked up Henry Golding. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you have a lot of homework to do, though thankfully most of the homework is just watching Crazy Rich Asians. Because I'm pretty sure once you do and you're introduced to super-eligible bachelor Nick Jones you'll want to go home and look up Harry Golding, the actor who plays him STAT! Sadly, while Nick might eligible in the extreme in the flick, he's soooo totally taken in real life. 

But don't be sad! Just like you'd wish, Henry Golding's wife, Liv Lo, is a total dream. She's the kind of broad you want to hate but then you meet her and become best friends and suddenly you're going to SoulCycle classes together and loving it even though you swore to yourself you'd never do SoulCycle. Or something. Maybe I am projecting? One thing is true, Henry's wife of six years, Liv Lo is gorgeous, badass, spirited, and in every way the perfect match for her movie star hubby.

Thankfully, you don't even need to just randomly take my word on any of this! I come bringing receipts, y'all! Here, in just five simple items, are some of the most important things to know about who Liv Lo is, what's she up to, what makes her so worthy of admiration, and why her relationship with Henry Golding is equal parts fairy tale romance and totally worthy #couplegoals. You could tell me it's creepy to be this into someone else's relationship, but I'll just stop you right now and let you know that would be pointless. So: Who is Liv Lo? To the Liv Lo facts!

1. She's A Celeb, Too 

Yeah, that's right! Who said you can't have two totally insanely-talented people who photograph really, really well in one couple? Not I, that's for sure! 

Liv works as a model, a TV host, a fitness lifestyle expert, a yoga instructor, and probably like a million other things, too. Even if she had nothing to do with Henry (thankfully this is not the case) chances are you would've heard of her sooner or later. 

Heck, her 97,000 Instagram followers are proof that you probably already have! Liv takes the fit life and makes it also look like the fun life.

2. She Made The First Move 

Get ready for a story that is so sickeningly sweet and cute that you might need to prep a couch for you swoon on after you sugar crash from hearing it. That's how ears work, right?

It was New Year's Day, 2011. The couple were strangers, but both had been invited to a party to swing in the New Year at a mutual friend's house. Liv noticed Henry pretty much immediately, and she noticed that the feeling (or at least the noticing) was mutual. 

She waited and waited and waited for Henry to approach her, to say hello, to ask to be introduced to her, anything! But he didn't do it. As the party was drawing to a close, Henry went to get his coat and was making his way out of the party when Liv interrupted him: "Hi," she said to him. "You're leaving this party and you're never going to see me again."

BOLD MOVE OR BOLD MOVE? It's like a modern day Jane Austen and I love it. Apparently, so did Henry! This first encounter led to 5 years of bliss before Harry finally popped the question and the couple tied the knot in 2016!

3. She's Biracial & Proud 

Growing up wasn't always easy for Liv Lo. She is half-Taiwanese and half-Italian, and being biracial isn't often seen as the gift that it is. 

But Liv wouldn't let anything stop her from realizing just how special she really was. She made it a point to learn three languages, English, Mandarin and Japanese, and has spent time living in Japan, Taiwan, and Singapore. Her mother and her adoptive father did their best to cultivate in Liv just how proud she should be of who she is, and it stuck!

This is part of why she was so thrilled when Harry took part in a film as celebratory of diversity as Crazy Rich Asians. 

4. She's Independent

In interviews, Liv Lo has spoken about how important her relationship with Henry is to her, obviously, but she also talks about a much more personal relationship: the one we all have with ourselves.

While some wives or girlfriends would be annoyed that their partner had to travel so much for work, Liv relishes the time that she and Henry spend apart. It doesn't just make their reunions that much sweeter, it enables her to spend the time she needs getting in touch with herself.

5. She's A Total Romantic 

Independent though she may be, don't for a second get the impression that this stunner is anything than other totally besotted with her adorable husband.

When Henry proposed, he took full advantage over how much his girlfriend loved a romantic gesture. He booked the same hotel in Thailand where they had spent their first trip away together and scheduled this second trip as a celebration of their fourth anniversary. He knew that a stunning sunset and champagne would help seal the memory for the girl of his dreams.
