    Cheng, 49, also posted a similar message on Instagram in Chinese.

    The couple did not give further details on the pregnancy or when the baby is due, but their 22-year age gap may have spurred their decision to have a baby as soon as possible, reported Jayne Stars.

    The pair reportedly dated for three years, soon after meeting each other on the set of supernatural TV drama Blue Veins in 2016, where Chan played a woman who pined for Cheng’s vampire hunter character.

    In July this year, Chan confirmed rumours that she was engaged to Cheng on her social media accounts.

Kevin and I have been dating for over 3 years and there was never a doubt in my mind that he was THE ONE! So when he popped the question last Christmas, the answer was a definite YES!”

    Chan confessed during a 2016 interview with The Straits Times that she had never watched any of Cheng’s dramas before getting to know him.

    However, she said that Cheng had given her many pieces of advice on acting, which she believed would help her improve her acting skills.

    Cheng, who in the past had been extremely private about his relationships with actresses Charmaine Sheh and Niki Chow, was noted to be unusually open about his relationship with Chan.

    Several Hong Kong media outlets had speculated that Cheng’s age may have been the reason for this change, indicating that the heart-throb actor was finally ready to settle down and get married.

    The large age gap between the pair has earned them their fair share of doubts from fans and the media, but Chan was unfazed by naysayers.

    In 2016, she told ST that she did not mind being in a May-December relationship. She said at the time: “We’re equal partners in the relationship. It’s not like one is the sidekick to the other.

    “We’re both the superheroes in this sense. Whenever we’re together, I’m happy and comfortable enough that I never feel like a shadow.”
