Etta was born following an extra-marital affair, and her father Jackie has never been very involved in her life. She said: “He is not my dad. I have no feelings for him. 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. I would say, ‘Oh, Jackie Chan, an actor,'” Etta added. Aside from his daughter, Jackie Chan also has a son, the actor Jaycee Chan, with his wife and former actress Lin Feng-jiao.
Fans comments were surprisingly supportive and a lot of people expressed their love for Etta and her girlfriend.

“We’ve been pushed down again and again but its worth it knowing we will get through it together, side by side. skip past all of the difficulties we’ve had this year, we are finally heading in the right direction, we have a path.” she also said.
