Gigi Chao has said she is touched by her father's $65 million “marriage bounty” to the man who can sweep her off her feet.

Hong Kong-based billionaire Cecil Chao Sze-tsung made the offer after reports that his daughter had entered a domestic partnership with her long-term girlfriend, Sean Eav, in France.

In addition to the “marriage bounty,” he has offered capital to his potential son-in-law to start his own business.

Speaking to the UK's The Telegraph, Gigi Chao said she has been inundated with offers from prospective male suitors from all over the world.

“It's not that he can't accept me,” she said. “It's that he can't accept how society would view me and the status that it would incur. Marriage is still a form of social status.”

“At first I was entertained by it, and then that entertainment turned into the realization and conviction that I am a really lucky girl to have such a loving daddy, because it's really sweet of him to do something like this as an expression of his fatherly love.”

Chao added that she's bisexual and would not confirm reports that she and her girlfriend tied the knot in France, saying only: “I'm very happy when I'm with her.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
