It’s been all over the news the past week - local actress Rebecca Lim has said “yes” to her boyfriend. Wait, Rebecca Lim is...attached?! Our thoughts exactly. Until the happy occasion was announced, no one even knew that she’s been dating anyone - not since rumours of her being with fellow Mediacorp star Ian Fang dissolved with news of a sexting scandal involving Carrie Wong.

Now that she’s engaged, many are curious about the mystery man who’s soon to be her husband. While his name is still unknown to us, here are 10 things we do know about Rebecca Lim’s fiancé.

P.S.: Ex-NOC talent Samantha Tan also recently got engaged - check out our article on her DIY proposal set-up and unconventional ring!

Read on to find out more about Rebecca Lim’s fiancé!

#1: He met her at a mutual friend’s gathering and proposed after less than a year of dating

It all happened rather quickly: Rebecca and her boyfriend were first introduced to each other at a mutual friend’s house party, hit it off right at the start, and the rest was history. Apparently, they laid their cards out in a straightforward manner and approached the whole situation with serious commitment in mind, provided that things worked out.

Luckily, they did, and he popped the question at a friend’s swanky art gallery at Raffles Hotel after just less than a year of dating. Fast game.

#2: He’s half ang moh, half Chinese

If you’ve scrutinised Rebecca’s proposal photos on Instagram, you can probably tell that her unnamed lover is of Caucasian descent - simply based on his skin tone and what little you can glimpse of his facial features. Rebecca has confirmed that he is of mixed parentage, having grown up locally with a Singaporean Chinese mother and English father.

#3: Rebecca and him are of the same age

No brow-raising age gaps spanning more than a decade a la Yan Kay Kay and Brandon Loh or Ryan Tan and Cherylene Chan here. 35-year-old Rebecca revealed that she and her beau both share the Tiger as their Chinese zodiac sign, since they were born in 1986.

#4: As a dog lover, he has 3 furkids of his own

It’s no secret that Rebecca is a fan of animals. She once owned a Golden Retriever named Ruffles, and you’ll occasionally see photos of her posing with various friends’ pets throughout her Instagram feed.

It’s just as well, then, that her boyfriend is a dog-lover himself, with 3 furkids of his own. Will Rebecca be sharing pics of them soon? We sure hope so!

#5: Music from the 80’s is his jam

One interesting nugget of information Rebecca was willing to divulge about her partner? Good ol’ ‘80’s music is his jam. We’re not sure what genre specifically, as this wasn’t elaborated on, but since ‘80’s tunes were playing softly in the background during the proposal, we’re guessing that there are probably quite a sprinkling of pop love ballads as part of his faves.

#6: Showbiz is not his industry and he instead works in corporate branding

You’ve probably already guessed that Rebecca’s husband-to-be is not a fellow Mediacorp actor, seeing as he’s been keeping himself well out of the limelight. Instead, he works in corporate brand management for a large local company, where he’s quite far up the ranks as an Assistant Vice President. Which brings us to the next point...

#7: Clueless about the entertainment scene, he had no idea that Rebecca was a celebrity

Not only is this mystery man not in the local entertainment scene, he’s also adorably clueless about it - to the point where he had zero idea that she was a celebrity at first. He even had to look her up on Wikipedia in order to confirm the fact!

Turns out, his family and friend circles are also not the most attuned to the happenings within Singapore’s showbiz landscape. He has, however, since started watching her shows - as how a supportive partner would.

So far, not a single one of Rebecca’s colleagues or industry mates have met the guy (yet). “I just wanted this relationship to be not so scrutinised and just evolve as naturally as it can.”

#8. He's a family-oriented person and was immediately well-liked by her kin

One of the qualities that made Rebecca extra sure of her partner is the fact that he’s very much a family guy. As a family-oriented individual herself, seeing her boyfriend behave in a filial manner - not just towards his family but hers as well - really won her over. It certainly helped that he was quite immediately well-liked by her loved ones.

His honesty, maturity, and down-to-earth demeanour are other traits she loves about him. Aww.

#9: He’s apparently not a “typical romantic guy”

Rebecca claims that she wouldn’t call her soon-to-be-husband “a typical romantic guy”. This is surprising, judging from the elaborate styled proposal set-up full of balloons and massive marquee lights spelling “MARRY ME”.

The duo are said to usually do things low-key, and don’t often dress up in fancy togs when hanging out or going out for dinner. She said that the grand spectacle was “not exactly out-of-character, but unexpected”.

#10: Speaking Chinese is a struggle for him, but he tries anyway for Rebecca’s grandma

According to Rebecca, her fiancé is “not good [at] Mandarin at all” despite being half-Chinese. Yet, he tries his best to string coherent sentences in Mandarin anyway, for the sole purpose of connecting with Rebecca’s grandmother - a person who’s very dear to her.

“Seeing him make the effort to communicate with my grandma, and the way he treats my family, to me, is a realistic romance that I would like, as opposed to big fanfares,” she shares.
