After keeping the media in suspense for weeks, Cecilia Cheung finally confirmed reports that she had given birth to her third child in November.
The Hong Kong actress was first reported on November 29 to have delivered a baby boy at the Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital. The news came as a shock to many as the 38-year-old remained silent on the reports. She also kept the media and public guessing about the identity of her mysterious baby daddy.
In a Weibo post shared on her official work account, Cecilia addressed the speculations for the first time.
“Dear fans, media friends and work partners, we are happy to represent Cecilia in sharing this piece of good news: Miss Cecilia Cheung gave birth to her third child in November, both mother and child are well.
“Cecilia has always been very protective of the most important people [in her life], which includes the child and [her] family. Cecilia will be working hard to give her three kids a quality upbringing from now and at the same time work hard to present better projects. ‘Little Prince’ is a month old, thank you everyone for your care and well-wishes.”
Apart from sharing the good news, Cecilia’s agency also distributed full month gift boxes, which came attached with an illustration of Cecilia and her three kids, to various Chinese media.
According to Hong Kong reports, Cecilia is still recuperating in Hong Kong and has yet to share her future work plans.
Despite Cecilia’s admission of her secret pregnancy, the identity of the baby’s father remains a mystery.
Said man was first reported to be a wealthy 65-year-old Singaporean businessman. Recent reports however suggested that the father is a 50-year-old Chinese businessman – and the child was “not born out of love”.
Other reports suggested that Cecilia decided to have another child to “change her luck” and conceived the child via In-Vitro fertilisation.
Cecilia also has two sons, Lucas, 10, and Quintus, 7, from her previous marriage to Nicholas Tse; the couple parted ways in 2011.
