In recent months, she has also cut back on her event appearances, choosing to appear through pre-recorded greeting videos instead. In March, a video the 39-year-old had filmed gave rise to pregnancy rumours, as she appeared to have put on a little weight.
A month later, Mark confirmed the good news through a post on Weibo, sharing that the couple was indeed expecting their first child. The baby’s expected due date and gender have yet to be revealed.
Earlier this week, a different video Yuanyuan had filmed for another event was released, making it her first "appearance" since announcing her pregnancy.
In the clip, the actress is seen dressed in a dark blue outfit, with light makeup on and her hair tied back. Though the video was filmed from her shoulders up, so as to hide any signs of her baby bump, the actress looked visibly rounder, and seemed to glow with happiness.
After seeing the video, fans flocked to leave comments wishing the actress well, with some even predicting the baby’s gender from the short video. “She looks so beautiful even when pregnant”, one wrote, while another commented, “(With just) one glance at her face, it’s apparent that she’s expecting a baby boy”.
