On a recent episode of Nicholas Tse’s food travelogue Chef Nic, the Hong Kong actor was seen having a heart-to-heart talk with his father Patrick Tse at an outdoor park in Spain. In the show, Patrick shared insights on Nicholas’ previous marriage with actress Cecilia Cheung while singing praises of the latter.
According to Patrick, Nicholas and Cecilia, who secretly tied the knot in the Philippines without their parents’ knowledge, served him tea while kneeling down, after they returned to Hong Kong.
Cecilia also apparently told Nicholas to be good to his parents because “he can have many wives, but he only has one mother”.
Patrick still vividly remembers her words today and he said: “She is such a sensible girl. How can I not dote on her?”
As the couple’s marriage ended up in divorce three years ago, Patrick expressed his regret and wished for Nicholas and his younger sister, actress-model Jennifer Tse, to have blessed lives. “I hope Nicholas would not follow in my footsteps,” he added.
In response to his dad’s comments, Nicholas replied with a heartfelt “I love you” and advised viewers to spend more time with their fathers before they get too aged.
