Taipei, Nov. 17 (CNA) Pop singer Jay Chou confirmed his romance with 21-year-old model Hannah Quinlivan for the first time Monday by posting two photos and saying "It's about time I shared my joy with you."

The singer has said that he will get married before turning 36 in January 2015.

In the post on the Facebook page of Chou's restaurant Mr. J, the couple poses alone for two photos. In one of them, Chou perched his head on Quinlivan's right shoulder for what appears to be a selfie.

"After my latest concert (in Malaysia), I received a lot of good wishes from my fans, who said they want me to be happy," Chou wrote in the post.

"I was moved to see some of you bring all your families to my concert to share your joy.

"It's been 14 years. It's about time I shared my joy with you," he said, apparently referring to the number of years since he started his career as a singer.

Chou is said to have dated the Australian-Korean-Taiwanese model and actress for four years but their romance had never been confirmed until now.

Even though the two have been seen together, reporters as well as Chou's fans have wondered whether Quinlivan will be "the one" or just another J-girl, the likes of which have included pop diva Jolin Tsai.

Chou is one of the highest-paid entertainers in the Chinese world. He writes most of his own hit songs and has acted in about a dozen movies, including playing as a co-star alongside Seth Rogen in his first Hollywood film The Green Hornet in 2011.

Quinlivan is one-fourth Taiwanese as her father is from Australia and her mother has Taiwanese and Korean parents.
