The Tokyo International Film Festival opened its doors in Tokyo’s Roppongi district today and among the star-studded attendees were Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi who stepped out in an elegant black gown and showed off a baby bump. Zhang Ziyi who had her first child with rocker husband Wang Feng gave birth to their daughter Wang Xingxing on December 27, 2015. The couple have long expressed their desire to have a second child and this year alone, there have been many pregnancy rumors surrounding the actress. There were even reports that she has turned down many projects to focus on her pregnancy.
Now that she is over 7 months pregnant, Zhang Ziyi finally took to social media to confirm the news. She wrote, “I’ve come to share some happy news with everyone [heart emoji]. Today’s agenda ~ Serving as the president of the jury at the 32nd Tokyo International Film Festival. In the next 8 days, I will be reviewing 14 productions in 7 categories with my 4 other colleagues. [bashful emoji] Today’s special identity ~ a mother-to-be who respects her work, pregnant for 30 weeks, weighing 116 jin (and counting). [heart eyes emoji] These two identities have given me the utmost pride. Thank you to everyone for your continued love and support.” Congrats to their growing family!
