Who Is Bling Empire: New York Star Stephen Hung First Wife?
Multiple sources have claimed that Deborah Hung-Valdez is Stephen Hung’s first wife and Sean and Ivan’s mother. But that’s not the case. His first wife/the mother of his kids is still a mystery to this date.
Infact, Stephen’s sons, Sean and Ivan were old enough to give speeches and perform dance numbers when Stephen and Deborah got married at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong in 2012.
In case you missed it, Sean, Stephen’s best man that night, delivered a touching speech to honor the newlyweds, which hit an emotional high note. As for Ivan, he performed a spontaneous breakdancing number as the band played “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO.
Overall, their ceremony reflected the newlyweds’ feelings of “love and respect for each other in the ceremony.”
Stephen Hung And Deborah Valdez-Hung Relationship
Stephen Hung first met Deborah Valdez-Hung in Hong Kong, China, as a client, when he was attending a Versace show. Immediately falling for each other, they then went on to date for three years before tying the knot in 2012.
However, their love story isn’t that simple. Given Deborah’s 24 years younger than Stephen and Stephen’s reputation as a wealthy playboy, many were convinced that Deborah only married the millionaire for money. Many even tried to typecast her in the stereotype of foreign beauty marrying a rich man, who many did not consider conventionally handsome.
But the lovebirds didn’t care what others said. They stayed together no matter the adversity and were never shy about showering each other with love.
