It’s a baby boy for Nicky Wu and Liu Shishi! The new dad took to Weibo on Monday morning (April 29) to announce the birth of his son, who was conceived four years after their marriage.
“The little one has arrived. Both mother and son are healthy. Thank you, everyone, for your concern. Dearest Mummy, you’ve suffered,” the 48-year-old Taiwanese actor wrote in the post and tagged his wife.
According to an Apple Daily reader, the Chinese actress gave birth shortly after she was spotted entering a delivery room in a Taipei hospital on Saturday morning (April 27).
The news was previously confirmed by Nicky’s friend, who said, “Shishi has given birth. An official announcement will be released soon.”
Since the announcement of her pregnancy last December, the 32-year-old has taken a break from work and relocated from smoggy Beijing to Taiwan.
The couple held a lavish wedding in Bali in 2016 after they fell in love on the set of 2011 Chinese period drama Scarlet Heart. This is Nicky’s second marriage.
She also couldn’t help but add that malicious reports about Shishi having problems conceiving had given the couple “a lot of pressure”, and revealed that the baby was conceived naturally.
According to Nicky’s mum, Shishi had been suffering from morning sickness.
