    “Not sure if we can cope with the chaos soon to come but for sure, it only gets better with time,” Qiuqiu shared on Instagram.

    “Amelia is still sometimes like a baby herself so i don’t know if becoming a jiejie (sister) will change her. But I’m 100% looking forward to spending more time with her, without a big belly between us.”

    While she was pregnant with Amelia in 2017, she became entangled in a lawsuit with a social media advertising network and faced up to $250,000 in legal fees.

    She turned to crowdfunding to raise the fees, but encountered backlash. One user even suggested she miscarried or aborted her child.
