Fun and laughter are clearly the secrets to the happy marriage of 98.7 FM DJ Daniel Ong, 33, and Jamie Teo, 31, Miss Singapore Universe 2001.
Throughout the photoshoot with Urban, both were constantly giggling and teasing each other.
Asked to look into his wife's eyes, Ong said: 'Look into her eyes? What if I fall asleep?'
The couple met on the set of Channel 5 sitcom Mr Kiasu in 2001, in which Ong played Mr Kiasu's brother, Mr Kiasee, and Teo played Mr Kiasu's girlfriend, Ai Swee.
They were friends for five years before tying the knot two years ago in September 2007.
The proposal came spontaneously. Teo was sick and Ong wanted to cheer her up.
'I drove to this road call Jalan Bahagia, which means Happy Road in Malay. We got out of the car, I got down on one knee and proposed,' he recounted.
They decided to mark the moment by buying a house on the same road.
They have since moved into a condominium in Serangoon along with three cats, two birds and 18 fish.
Compromise, they say, is the key to making a relationship work.
'Love alone is not enough. You also have to respect and be kind to each other,' said Ong.
How do you keep the romance alive?
Teo: Dan makes the effort to do things together. He makes sure that we go out instead of stay at home.
Ong: I think being intimate when you are in a public place, like squeezing hands or cuddling, keeps the affection alive.
I still make her my priority. Although work is everything to me, I always set aside part of the day to do stuff with her.
What do you find sexy about each other?
Teo: I love his strong forearms - I feel that he can protect me from any danger and he makes me laugh all the time. Dan is also very nurturing and providing - things like plants and animals flourish under his care.
Ong: I love her smile. She's also got an awesome body. She is always game for adventure and is a very loving person. When I see her carrying our cats or with my nieces and nephews, it makes me want to go over and hug her.
How do you deal with relationship problems?
Teo: Every time we get into a fight, I feel like saying: 'This is it.'
But when we work things out, I will think to myself: 'Did I really want to call it quits?'. I'm glad that we always manage to talk things through.
Ong: Every time we fight, one question always comes to mind: 'Can I do without her?'
The answer is always no.
The most important thing is to talk things through. We agree to disagree and identify the lines that cannot be crossed. Then we try to find a compromise and carry on with life.
What do you guys do together in your spare time?
Teo: I think doing anything together helps a couple to bond. It might be something that you don't really enjoy but your partner does, so you have to put in the effort.
Ong: We do a lot of sports together, such as badminton, table tennis, swimming and wakeboarding.
We like playing card games like poker and tahiti and we can do it for hours - just the two of us over a glass of wine.
