Pregnancy and childbirth aren’t easy, but poor Barbie Hsu seems to have had it especially hard. Two years ago, the Taiwanese actress was sadly forced to abort her third child after doctors found that the foetus was not fully developed. That pregnancy had also taken a toll on her health, even sending her into an epileptic fit at one point.
As it turns out, Barbie had it much worse when she gave birth to her second child, son Wang Hsi-Lin, in 2016. Recently, the 43-year-old made an appearance on variety show After Becoming a Mother (literal translation), where she got candid about the terrifying and life-threatening experience that landed her in the ICU.
“As soon as I gave birth to my son, I stopped breathing, and I had to be sent to the Intensive Care Unit,” she revealed.
