Actor Michelle Yeoh recently married her longtime partner, Jean Todt, after 19 years of being engaged.
Key details: Yeoh, 60, and Todt, 77, reportedly got married on Thursday in Geneva, Switzerland, where they own a refurbished 18th-century mansion.
Photos of the couple’s wedding ceremony were first shared by former Scuderia Ferrari driver Felipe Massa on Instagram.
“Happy marriage #JeanTodt & #michelleyeoh love you so much,” Massa wrote in his post’s caption.
Heartwarming throwback: One of Massa’s photos notably features a wedding card with a throwback picture of the Malaysian star and the French motor racing executive.
“On 26th July 2004, J.T proposed to marry M.Y and she said YES!” the card says. “Today after 6992 days on 27th July 2023 in Geneva, surrounded by loving family and friends, We are so happy to celebrate this special moment together.”
How they met: Yeoh and Todt first laid eyes on each other at a Ferrari event in Shanghai on June 4, 2004.
“A guy was trying to clear the stage and was being rude, so Jean went up to him and
talked him down. He’s about my height, and the fact that he could talk down someone bigger than him was my first impression of him — and a good one,” Yeoh told You Magazine in 2018.
About Todt: Yeoh’s husband was the CEO of Ferrari from 2004 to 2008. Prior to this, he was the director of Peugeot Talbot Sport and the general manager of the Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 team. He also served as the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile President from 2009 until 2021.
According to Yeoh, Todt has always been a romantic. “A couple of months ago, he said: ‘Do you know, this is our 5,000th day together?'” she told You Magazine. “And I said: ‘You count the days?’ And he said: ‘The minutes, too.'”
Other details: The couple have yet to publicly announce their wedding.
Prior to her recent marriage, Yeoh was married to Hong Kong business magnate Dickson Poon from 1998 to 1991.
