While Song Joong Ki made a surprise announcement about his second marriage and premarital pregnancy, his parents kept quiet.
Sports Seoul tried to contact Song Joong Ki’s parents on January 30th. Song Joong Ki’s father reportedly hung up the phone and stayed silent when the media reporter revealed their identity. The actor’s mother reportedly showed a cautious attitude. She said, “I have nothing to say.“
Song Joong Ki delivered the surprise marriage news through a post on his fan cafe on the same day. He said, “I promised to share my future life with Katy Louise Saunders. A precious life has come to us. We’re on our way to register our marriage to make a new start in our life as a couple based on our deep trust and love.”
Regarding this, Song Joong Ki’s agency, HighZium Studio, told Wikitree, “It is true that Song Joong Ki registered his marriage with Katy. The two are also planning to hold a wedding ceremony. However, the specific schedule has not been set yet.“
Song Joong Ki married Song Hye Kyo, his co-star in the drama “Descendants of the Sun” in 2017. They broke up after about a year and 9 months of marriage.
After his divorce, Song Joong Ki started dating Katy Lewis Saunders, whom he met through an acquaintance in 2021. Katy was born in 1984 and is one year older than Song Joong Ki (born in 1985).
Katy is a former British actress. She made her debut in the 2002 film “A Scandalous Journey” and appeared in several films and TV series.
