Comedian Ronny Chieng has been married to Hanna Pham since 2016. Chieng married his wife, not just once or twice but three whole times! So, what’s the story behind him getting married thrice to the same woman?

They Got Married in Australia, Malaysia, and New York

Four and a half years after tying the knot, Chieng and his wife are still going strong. The couple got married in three different places in three different celebrations. 

As shared by the Ronny Chieng: Asian Comedian Destroys America star, the couple said their vows for the first time in Melbourne, Australia, where Pham comes from. The first wedding has a funny story behind it—Chieng almost missed it because of flight delays!

For the second time, the comedian got married in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, as per his origins. The third time Chieng and Pham got married was in New York, which was for the green card process.

A College Romance Blooms Into Marital Bliss

The Crazy Rich Asians actor is not vocal about his marriage and personal life. He doesn’t open up much about his partner. However, it is known that she has a YouTube channel, Pham Bam Kitchen, where she talks about Asian food recipes. 

The famous comedian’s wife shares a common trait with her husband—she also keeps her relationship with him under wraps. 

The Australia-based Malaysian actor and his wife first met when they attended the University of Melbourne, where Pham graduated in commerce and law. Chieng, too, was set to become a lawyer but eventually picked up comedy in his last year of college.

Having met over a decade ago, the couple is still very much in love. They spend ample time together when he is not out touring for comedy gigs.

In an interview with The New York Times, Chieng revealed what his typical Sundays and spare days looked like:

If I’m not touring, I wake up late, 10, 11 a.m., and one of my favorite things is to go for brunch with my wife. After brunch, we go for a Chinese massage where they beat the hell out of you in a good way. Then we go grocery shopping.
