It is known that Song Joong Ki and Katy Louise Saunders got to know each other for about three years before deciding to live together.

Thanks to her, I am becoming a better version of myself.” He also denied any inaccurate information about his partner. According to the South Korean media, Katy is expected to give birth in August.
Appearing before the international media at the premiere of the film “Hopeless” at the Cannes Film Festival 2023 on May 24th, Song Joong Ki declared that his wife and child are the most important things in his life right now. He shared, “There have been many good things happening to me lately. Actually, I was quite worried about attending the Cannes Film Festival, but now I’m focused on the upcoming birth of my child. I want to quickly finish my schedule at Cannes and return to my wife and child. It feels like everything beautiful is happening at once this time.”
Song Joong Ki also added with a smile, “I think I should think positively, be grateful, and live well. Good and great things have happened in my life at the same time, including being invited to attend the Cannes Film Festival this time.”
Since publicly announcing his marriage and having a child with a foreign wife, Song Joong Ki’s personal life has become a topic of public interest.
