After seven years of marriage, Huang Xiaoming and Angelababy have officially called it quits. On January 28, both made their divorce social media official via identical messages and tagging the other. “Grateful for everything in the past, the future is still about family!” They will be co-parenting their five-year-old son whom they nicknamed Little Sponge.
Trouble in Paradise
Today’s announcement probably didn’t come as a big surprise for many, seeing that speculation over their relationship was headed for divorce has been going around for years. In 2019, people began to notice the couple weren’t spending as much time together. Even when sharing the same stage in multiple occasions, there was almost zero interaction and no eye contact. On the same year, Angelababy was also spotted sans her spectacular Chaumet ring.
Then there were those cryptic posts Baby made, “You live. You learn. You upgrade.” Last year, old rumours claiming Angelababy was the third party that came between Huang Xiaoming and his ex Li Feier resurfaced due to the show Sisters Who Make Waves 2. Although both slammed the rumours, it did raise more questions whether the marriage was already in trouble after she kept referring to her husband as “Mr Huang”.
The former couple have split amicably
Before tying the knot in what has been considered to be the wedding of the century, Huang Xiaoming and Angelababy were dating for six years. They registered their marriage on May 27, 2015 in Qingdao. They held a lavish wedding on October 8, 2015 that reportedly cost an eye watering US $31 million – almost triple the cost of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Italian wedding in 2014. On January 17, 2017, Baby gave birth to their son “Little Sponge”.
Their studios have also issued their respective statements to say that the two have decided to peacefully separate. The two have completed the relevant procedures a few days ago and will jointly raise their child. Both the artists and their studios will no longer make any statements about the matter. Their studios thank the media and the public for their concern and love. With the upcoming Spring Festival, they also wish everyone a happy new year.
