"I have a girlfriend, who I want to share rest of my life with," the singer, 27, said in a hand-written letter to his fans on his agency SM Entertainment's official community board. "While I was discussing with other EXO members and company officials about delivering the news (on my girlfriend,) a 'blessing' came to us." Many speculate that the blessing refers to a baby.

"I didn't' want to take more time, so decided to take the courage," he added. "I am thankful to my members for their good wishes, and I want to thank my fans for their love. I will keep striving to reciprocate the love."

SM, representing EXO, confirmed the star's marriage without revealing the date, saying, "Chen will tie the knot with his non-celebrity girlfriend. Further details about his marriage will not be disclosed to public."

Chen debuted as a member of EXO in 2012. The group recently released its sixth studio album "OBSESSION."
