Gregor Robertson, Wanting Qu Confirm Relationship On Weibo

Gregor Robertson posted a selfie with his new girlfriend on Weibo, a Chinese social media site.

Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson and pop star Wanting Qu have confirmed rumours that they're a couple with a very public Valentine's Day declaration of love.

The mayor posted a selfie with the singer on his Weibo account with a message in English and Chinese: "Happy Valentines Day sweetheart! I’m so lucky you fill my life with love and happiness. Thanks for making my family happy too!"

The singer responded on the Chinese social media site with an emoji-laden post: "Thank you for loving me Gregor Ps. U r a lucky man! Happy Valentines to all!"

Rumours surfaced last month that the two were dating.

Last summer, Robertson, 50, announced he had separated amicably from his wife, Amy, after almost 30 years together. The couple has four adult children.

Qu, 31, was named Vancouver's first tourism ambassador in China in 2013. The singer was born in Harbin, China but moved to Vancouver as a teen.
