EXO member Chen quickly jumps to the most talked about topic following his personal announcement of his marriage and the eventual confirmation that he and his fiancee are expecting a baby!
As of writing time, his names “Jongdae” (real name) and “Chen” are the top 1 and 2 topics respectively on Twitter Philippines.
Chen announced in a handwritten letter through the the official fan club platform Lysn that he has a girlfriend he wants “to spend the rest of [his] life with.” The full translation of his message can be read here.
His announcement was met with excitement and a bit of confusion until SM Entertainment released a statement confirming that Chen is getting married. They said that Chen’s girlfriend is a non-celebrity and so the wedding ceremony will be held privately with only their families in attendance.
Prior to the surprise announcement, fans trended the hashtag “#PSSSPSPSPSSSSPSPSPS_FOR_CHEN” since there has been little news and updates on Chen’s whereabouts. The hashtag was meant to resemble a person’s call for a cat, the animal fans associate with Chen.
Chen will be the first among the 9 EXO members to get married and become a father.
