She later confirmed that she in a relationship with social media influencer Andi Autumn.

"I am in awe at the amount of support and love poured my way. I am speechless at how followers went to my Girlfriend @andiautumn and my account to show us both so much positivity," Etta said. "People all over the world have been rooting us on as Hong Kong media continues to mock. I've grown up in a world of negativity and close mindedness but I am at that point where I realize that I can use my experience to tell my truths and help others just like me. Thankfully I've grown since the days I was powerless and uncertain what the world has for me. Thank you for the enormous outpour of love and acceptance."

Thank you for the enormous outpour of love and acceptance. 🌈❤️🙌🏻💪🏻 我對於大家的支持和愛感到十分驚喜與感激。你們在我和我女朋友 @andiautumn 的instagram户口留下的正能量實在令我感恩。多謝來自世界各地的你們給我的祝福,令我感到恩惠,當香港傳媒不斷去評論我的生活時,令我感受到無比的壓力。我從小在一個佈滿負面和封閉的環境下長大,但是隨著社會進步,我希望能夠利用我的故事來説出真相從而幫助其他和我處境一樣的人。我曾經對於世界和未來感到非常無助和迷惘,但慶幸身邊一直有不同的人去支持和鼓勵我,令我想通了,成長了。最後我想再次多謝大家的關懷和接受。🌈❤️🙌🏻🦄 #lgbt #androgynous #lgbtqai #loveislove #lovewins #lovealwayswins #lesbian #love #support #🌈 #androgynous #queer #gay #gaygram #loveyourself #advocacy

Andi has also taken to social media to address the romance and gush about her love, saying she's "never met anyone like" Etta.

"She has given me a chance to fully express the running thoughts in my head. No judgements, just understanding," Andi said. "Everything was against us. We've been pushed down again and again but its worth it knowing we will get through it together, side by side."

She added, "We've encountered a lot of discrimination from family, friends, and the Hong Kong society. We are living in such an international city and yet so many people have their minds closed off. But none of it matters when I know every morning your going to be next to me. I love you."

Andi later thanked her 106,000 Instagram followers for being supportive of the relationship.

Jackie and his daughter have no relationship. Etta was born in 1999 after the actor had an affair with Elaine Ng, a beauty and pageant queen. When Etta was born, she was dubbed "Little Dragon Girl."

In 2015, Etta said of Jackie, "He is my biological father but he is not in my life. He never existed in my life. I will never regard him as a father."
