Congratulations are in store for celebrity couple Gao Yuanyuan and Mark Chao as they have welcomed their first child, a daughter, today (May 21). They confirmed that they were expecting last month, but refrained from providing more details, such as their expected date of delivery and the gender of their unborn child.
Mark updated his Weibo with a short post, writing, “It’s a lovely day because we welcomed a beautiful life (to this world). Mother and daughter are healthy and safe. Thank you everyone!”
In under an hour, he amassed over 20,000 reposts, comments and likes on his post, most of them congratulating him on the good news. Yuanyuan also reposted his original announcement.
Among the comments are also those that hope that the couple will share a photo of their bundle of joy soon. This might not happen in the near future, however, as the pair is known for being tight-lipped about their private lives.
The actors tied the knot five years ago, after which Yuanyuan cut down on her acting projects to be able to take care of her parents and focus on her family.
