Oscar-winning actress Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh and her long-time fiance Jean Todt have tied the knot in Geneva, Switzerland on Thursday (July 27) after 19 years together.
The good news was shared by Brazilian F1 racer Felipe Massa in an Instagram post on Friday (July 28).
While several friends and family members were present to witness the union, Yeoh's mother, Datin Janet Yeoh, revealed in an interview with China Press that she didn't know about her daughter's marriage.
Speaking with the publication, Janet, 84, said: "My daughter would always call me, but she didn't inform me (about the marriage) when we were on the phone two weeks ago. Maybe she wants to surprise me!"
Janet added that she was elated by the news as she would often urge Michelle, 60, to get married.
Janet also said that she hopes her daughter will return to Malaysia and hold a wedding reception with family and friends here.
"Jean proposed to (Michelle) many times, and she would laugh and say she enjoys being proposed to. Jean loves her very much," Janet said, adding that her daughter's happiness was top priority.
Todt, 77, proposed to Michelle Yeoh on July 26, 2004 after dating for a month and a half. The couple first met in Shanghai, China on June 4, 2004.
This year is turning out to be an eventful one for Yeoh.
In January, the actress made history after becoming Malaysia's first Golden Globe award winner.
She added another feather to her cap in March after becoming the first actress of Asian descent to clinch the Best Actress gong at the 95th Academy Awards for her role in Everything Everywhere All At Once.
Yeoh is set to appear alongside Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo in the upcoming musical adaptation of Wicked.
She will also be seen in the thriller, A Haunting In Venice, an adaptation of an Agatha Christie novel directed by Kenneth Branagh.
