VANCOUVER • TVB actress Linda Chung was a gushing bride at her wedding banquet in Vancouver last Saturday, when she said she had known her husband, chiropractor Jeremy Leung, for 10 months and wanted to marry him within four days of their acquaintance.

Speaking to reporters at the make-up banquet, which was held days after she announced her December marriage, she said: "Actually, it isn't sudden. I've known him for some time. It's February now. I've known him for 10 months. There's really such a thing as 'meant to be' in this world. Because I hadn't known him for four days and I don't know why, but I felt in my heart he was my husband and he believed that I was his wife."

The Canada-born, Hong Kong- based actress said she and Leung, about 43, had a long-distance relationship after being introduced by her elder sister and it was "hard being apart".

Chung, 31, declined to discuss rumours about her pregnancy, saying it was "too soon".

But she said that the couple want four children and that she is on leave till the end of July.
