Thailand’s transgender actress Treechada Petcharat, better known as Nong Poy, recently announced that she is now engaged.

The actress shared the good news on social media on 3 February with a photo of her and her fiancé, businessman Oak Phakwa Hongyok, captioning the post with a love emoji.

Thairath reported that the two have known each other for more than 20 years, prior to her gender reassignment surgery. However, the two only started dating a year ago.

Nong Poy’s fiancé reportedly does business in tourism, restaurants and coffee in Phuket, Thailand.

Winning Miss Tiffany and Miss International Queen in 2004, two years after undergoing gender reaffirming surgery, Nong Poy became famous internationally after securing a role in the 2013 Hong Kong hit, “The White Storm”, as well as 2015’s “From Vegas to Macau II”.
