Mario decorated three levels of Shanghai's L'Avenue Mall, owned by his mother, with 99,999 roses and invited over 1,000 family and friends to witness the fairy-tale proposal. The son of Stanley Ho went down on one knee and asked Ming Xi, "Do you remember that night in Macau, you asked if we would be together? Today, the question has changed to: ‘Little Ming, do you think we'll always be together?'"

The engagment is said to be prompted by Ming Xi's rumoured pregnancy, which would triple the happiness as Mario's older sister, Sabrina Ho, is also expecting a baby. 

Congratulations to the young couple!
