SINGAPORE — Local actor Desmond Tan announced on Tuesday (7 December) that he had married his university sweetheart of 12 years in France.

Tan wrote on Instagram, quoting from Solomon 3:4 of the Bible, "I have found the one whom my soul loves."

He continued: "Once upon a time, I became yours and you became mine. We stay together through tears and laughter because that's what they call happily ever after."

The 35-year-old actor timed his post together with an announcement from The Celebrity Agency (TCA), Mediacorp's artist management arm. 

TCA said, "We have wonderful news to announce – Desmond Tan has tied the knot with his university sweetheart of 12 years ❤️December is a month of love and joy – here's wishing the couple a blissful marriage :)"

The wedding ceremony took place at a chateau in France and TCA said the couple is now on their honeymoon, according to CNA Lifestyle.

Tan posted photos from his wedding in his Instagram post. The photos did not show the bride's face and Tan's wife remains unidentified. 

This news comes on the heels of another Mediacorp artiste, Rebecca Lim, getting engaged. Lim announced her engagement last month.

Tan had been dating his partner since 2010. He previously said that he did not wish to reveal her identity as he wanted to keep his personal life private.

The actor had made an Instagram post from Changi Airport two days ago to share that he was departing for an undisclosed location at that time. 

Just yesterday, he shared this post featuring horses on a pasture in France:

Anyway, congrats to the couple!
