Ever since the Tokyo Olympics kicked off last week, a number of Olympians have gone viral for their connections to showbusiness.

Like this Taiwanese gymnast who Dee Hsu has claimed as her son. 

But here's one more athlete who's actually related to one of China's biggest stars. 

And that's 27-year-old Chinese paddler Chen Meng, who beat Singapore’s Yu Mengyu 4-0 in the women’s singles semi-finals earlier today (Jul 29).  

After Chen Meng, who is the current World No. 1, defeated Hongkong’s Doo Hoi-kem in a thrilling match yesterday, netizens began digging into her background and discovered that she is the cousin of actor Huang Xiaoming. Yes, Angelababy's husband... or is it ex-husband?

Chen Meng will be playing for gold in the final tonight at 9pm Singapore time while Mengyu's bronze medal match is at 7pm on meWATCH.
