Chinese director Zhang Jizhong, 70, is reportedly having a third child with his 39-year-old wife Du Xinglin. 

Jizhong is highly regarded in showbiz, having worked on wuxia classics like the 2003 drama, The Legend of the Condor Heroes, which was responsible for turning Liu Yifei into a household name, as well as its 2006 sequel Return of the Condor Heroes, which also starred Huang Xiaoming.

In recent years, however, the director has taken a step back from work, choosing to focus on his family instead. 

The director married Xinglin, who used to work as his manager and assistant, in 2017. This is his third marriage. The couple has two kids together, a two-year-old son, and a one-year-old daughter.

Jizhong has two more kids from previous relationships.

He has a daughter from his first marriage, though not much is known about that union. The Chinese media have identified Jizhong’s eldest daughter as Zhang Yuxin, the CEO of Chinese media company, Mandala Media.

Then there's his six-year-old son Martin, who is often seen in photos with the director and his wife. However, Jizhong has not disclosed the identity of Martin’s mother.
