Contrary to expectations, Etta also has a warlike relationship with her celebrity mother, who raised her independently. Find out all you can about Jackie Chan’s youngest daughter.
Who is Etta Ng Chok Lam?
Etta Ng Chok Lam was welcomed into the world on January 18, 1999. She grew up in Hong Kong and until recently lived a relatively inconspicuous lifestyle.

Interesting facts about Jackie Chan’s daughter – Etta Ng Chok Lam
Strained Relationship With Jackie
After winning Miss Asia in 1990, Elaine Ng Yi Lei made headlines again in 1999 after revealing that she had an illicit relationship with Jackie Chan and was carrying his child. Although Jackie, who was already married at the time, admitted his actions and admitted that it was a mistake that almost every man is prone to make, he never really took responsibility for his youngest daughter and only child with the former beauty queen.
The couple apparently had a unique romance and did not marry and Jackie wanted nothing to do with his ‘second family’. As a result, Etta, who was raised by her single mother, developed a tense father-daughter relationship with Chan and never considered him her father. While she claims not to begrudge her famous father, Etta was never interested in meeting Jackie.
Moreover, over the years there have been contradictory reports about Jackie’s roles in Etta Ng Chok Lam’s life. There are reports that while Jackie was still married to his wife, Elaine and Etta provided child support for the children but severed all ties after the former beauty queen and Etta moved to Hong Kong after some public controversy over the actor’s past.
On the other hand, Elaine Wu claims that she decided to take care of her daughter without Chan and adds that they didn’t get a single cent from Chan, who never cared about their well-being and didn’t offer them any help at all. Etta Ng Chok Lam also claims that she struggled with poverty during her childhood and never took financial help from her famous father.
Controversial relationship with her mother
Although raised by her mother alone, Etta Ng Chok Lam’s relationship with Elaine Wu was not exactly loving. In fact, both women had a controversial relationship, as Etta accused her mother of various crimes, including cruelty and abuse. Moreover, it is also said that Ng’s decision to leave school is partly a result of the tense relationship she has with her mother.
On the other hand, Elaine Wu once revealed that her daughter has undergone psychological therapy after her struggle with some emotional problems. But after Etta moved to Canada, she discontinued therapy.
Married to her lesbian lover
In October 2017 Etta Ng Chok Lam announced that she is a lesbian and is dating a Canadian social media personality, Andi Autumn. Ng also announced that she moved to Canada that same year at the age of 19 to live with Autumn, who is 12 years older. Their lesbian relationship failed to win the support of Ng’s parents. This was confirmed in April 2018 when Ng made a viral YouTube video asking the public for help while claiming that she and Autumn were on the verge of homelessness because of her homophobic parents. Later, however, Elaine denounced Ng’s allegations, insinuating that her daughter was broke because of unemployment, which was easily solved by hard work and finding a job.
A few months later, Etta made headlines when she revealed in social media that she and her celebrity friend Andi Autumn had formed a life-long bond. In an Instagram posting, Ng uploaded a photo of herself in white dresses with her marriage certificate confirming that they were married in a ceremony in Toronto on November 8, 2018. The couple is based in Canada and has founded a multimedia company that focuses on the production of “meaningful media projects”. Now united by love and law, Ng and Autumn hope that their marriage will inspire other lesbian and gay couples to overcome family prejudice.
