Ming Xi is a Chinese supermodel
Mario's now-fiancé, Ming Xi, is a 30-year-old US-based Chinese supermodel, who walked the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show runway from 2013 to 2018. The two started dating after being paired on a Chinese dating reality show in 2017.
The fairy-tale proposal
The Girl of my dreams is now going to be my wife, how fairytale can life get for me?
— Mario Ho
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?'"
