Photos: Zhang Ziyi via Weibo
IT’S A GIRL: After keeping her pregnancy under wraps for months, Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi announced the arrival of her baby girl on Weibo this morning (Dec 28).
The picture, which has two big hands cradling a newborn’s tiny fist, was accompanied by a caption: “December 27, you, me and her. We have a family of our own with the arrival of this new life.”
“[Both mother and child] are doing well, [it all went] smoothly, giving thanks!” wrote Ziyi.
The 36-year-old actress’ beau Wang Feng also shared the same picture on his account and wrote: “She has arrived; a lovely new baby,” which was accompanied by a poetic verse to describe the arrival of his first child with Ziyi.
In mid-December, Ziyi was rumoured to have given birth in Los Angeles but reports were debunked when photos of the pregnant actress walking her dog in the US surfaced.
Ziyi and Wang Feng are said to have registered their marriage in Hong Kong on June 29 this year; the couple got engaged in a high-profile proposal at Ziyi’s birthday bash in February after dating for one-and-a-half-years.
