Celebrity couple Angelababy and Huang Xiaoming’s romance is constantly in the spotlight, but this time around, it seems that the attention has caused a negative effect, resulting in rumours of the pair splitting. This is not the first time that such rumours have surfaced, as she previously touched upon the topic of her marriage after speculation of a divorce started circulating.
The pair registered their marriage in May 2015, and welcomed their only child, a son, in January 2017. They’ve constantly updated their respective social media platforms with snippets of their life as a family of three, which has led many fans to believe that their marriage has always been smooth-sailing.
As such, many were shocked to see Angelababy upload photos of herself with another man on the Spring Lantern Festival (February 19). She looked to be taking a stroll along the beach with an unidentified man with her caption musing about how her son has recently learned how to talk.
This sparked a huge debate online as many wondered why she was talking about her son when the picture was clearly of herself with another man. In addition, the post was made on the last day of the Lunar New Year, which is usually spent with your family. This led to speculation that she has divorced Xiaoming and is starting a new chapter of her life with another man.
It was only after when fans explained that the man captured in the photos was Angelababy’s manager and close friend did the debate die down. She later updated her caption to confirm this, adding that they were at the beach because of work.
Hong Kong actors Kevin Cheng and Grace Chan welcomed their first child, a boy, earlier this month. Although details such as the bundle of joy’s date of birth were not revealed, the proud parents let on that his name is Rafael.
Grace shared photos from her pregnancy photoshoot on Instagram on Tuesday (Feb 19), which saw her posing at a beach wearing a simple maxi dress. Her baby bump was very much visible in the shots, which she captioned with, “Now that you’re out in the open world, be careful (and) be safe. But know that I will protect you always.”
Separately, it’s clear that Rafael has his dad wrapped around his finger, as Kevin posted another photo of himself with his son on Instagram that same day.
“He has a strong handshake,” Kevin quipped as the snap showed Rafael’s hand wrapped around his dad’s finger. Although Rafael’s face was not visible in the photo, fans remarked that the onesie that the little boy was wearing looked very comfortable, adding that the first-time parents must have spent a long time choosing out clothes for their child.
On February 18, Taiwanese singer Show Luo posted a surprising announcement on his Weibo account: that he will be stepping away completely from streetwear brand STAGE which he founded in 2006. In his statement, he thanked fans for their support.
After his announcement, fans have speculated on the reason behind his departure from the brand, which he has treated as his baby. This reminded fans of a now-deleted post that Show had previously made on social media which read, “As a person, you shouldn’t win an inch and expect a mile”.
Although he did not specify who the ambiguous post was directed towards, netizens shared that the timing coincided with a staff member of STAGE’s social media post which read, “Evil people will get their just desserts one day”. This has led to speculation that Show was unfairly forced out from STAGE.
In addition, fans dug deeper and realised that Show has since changed his Instagram handle from ‘showlostage’ to ‘showlo’, and that he had stopped posting photos of himself in STAGE apparel since late last year.
This also explained why he chose to work with his girlfriend, Grace Chow, to launch a collaborative line for his music video rather than STAGE. At the time, his decision was blasted by fans, but in hindsight, they shared that he must have been going through a hard time but was unable to say anything because his split from the label was still under discussion.
Former Hong Kong actress Gigi Lai stunned many with her looks during her 47th birthday last October, when photos of her and her ageless beauty were uploaded online.
However, those words of praise turned into surprise when Gigi made an appearance at a company event earlier this month. She looked to be in good spirits and has still maintained her slim figure, but all eyes were on her face, which looked drastically different from what the public remembered it to be.
Many commented that age has caught up with her as her features looked to be drastically different from in the past, with many commenting that Gigi, as the CEO of Miricor Enterprises Holdings Limited, a medical aesthetic service provider in Hong Kong, should maintain herself better.
Others pointed out that her changed looks might have been because of how her hair was styled and makeup was done on that day, or because of the unflattering harsh lighting used at the event.
Gigi announced that she would be retiring from showbiz in 2007 after her younger brother was involved in an accident, and took on the role as the CEO of his company instead.
Fans have been asking her if she has any plans of making a comeback, but Gigi has since clarified that she has no current plans to do so.
Chinese actors Zanilia Zhao and Feng Shaofeng confirmed that they had tied the knot last October, and announced in January this year that they are expecting their first child, a son, together.
At the time, they did not share any further details about their bun in the oven, including the due date. However, reports claimed that she was seven months pregnant and that their baby would be born in March. They have neither confirmed nor denied this piece of news.
Recent reports have added to this claim, sharing that the couple has reserved a delivery suite at a reputable hospital for them to welcome their son. A source claimed that Chinese host Xie Na recommended the hospital to them, and that the couple decided to get the exact same team of doctors and nurses to care for their baby.
In addition, Zanilia is said to have chosen the VIP delivery suite, which costs RMB 10,100 (about S$2,030) a day, excluding other costs.
Although it has yet to be officially confirmed if the couple will indeed welcome their firstborn next month, fans have already taken to social media and left a flurry of congratulatory comments on their respective pages.
Others have pointed out that the couple, who is known for their preference to keep a low profile, will likely either announce their baby’s birth much later, or not mention it at all.
Taiwanese actress Lu Yuan-chi has broken up with her boyfriend, Max, who is 11 years her junior. The split came as a surprise as she went public with her relationship just five days before announcing that they had gone their separate ways.
Yuan-chi was previously married to Yuan Weiren (also known as John Yuan) and they two children, a daughter and a son, together.
The 48-year-old previously shared that she decided to date Max as she has immense trust in him, and her son has also remarked that he believes Max was the right person to look after his mother for the rest of her life.
Alas, it seems like their trust was misplaced as a woman, only known to the media as Miss Lin, came forward to declare [when?] that Max had cheated Yuan-chi and herself. She went on to share that she started dating Max in 2014 and they even lived together.
However, Max told Yuan-chi that he had broken up with Miss Lin last October. Miss Lin declared that Max had two-timed them, and demanded that he apologise to her.
Yuan-chi, on the other hand, alleged that Miss Lin harassed her after she went public with her relationship, and that her son was also affected by her harassment. She ultimately decided to break up with Max as she hopes to regain stability in both her personal and work life.
JJ Lin started the Year of the Pig on the high note as he held four sold-out shows at the Taipei Arena as part of his Sanctuary World Tour.
His manager shared with Taiwanese media that being able to hold four shows at the iconic location was a milestone in JJ’s career, especially since the Singaporean singer-songwriter was almost forced to retire from showbiz in 2007. According to reports, his vocal cords were damaged due to severe acid reflux and thankfully, JJ has since made a full recovery and has no problems with his voice.
During the concert, JJ also spoke of a low point in his career.
“In the past few years, I’ve encountered ups and downs, goods things and bad things. One thing I realised is that we shouldn’t feel sad, and that we shouldn’t feel sad just because the going is tough. It’s a vicious circle of emotions and I often tell myself not to be afraid, that I can’t be afraid. I shouldn’t be afraid of being hurt.”
He continued, “When you’re not afraid and facing (difficulties head-on), you’ll become stronger. Don’t be afraid of failing, because you won’t know how you should improve unless you fail. Regardless of how huge the challenge is, and how many times you fail, if you don’t give up, there will be a day where you’ll accomplish (what you want).”
On his Instagram account, JJ also shared that with the end of the concerts in Taiwan, he has successfully wrapped up Sanctuary 1.0 after 11 months of touring. His next scheduled stop as part of his world tour will be in Sydney on March 9.
Sharon Chan attended a press conference for an insurance company in Hong Kong on February 18.
The 40-year-old actress admitted that she plans to retire at the age of 55. "In fact, I want to retire right now, but I don't think it's possible," she said. "So I hope to be able to do so at the age of 55 and go travel the world with my husband and son."
Sharon then shared that although her son is only 2 years old, she has already prepared insurance and savings plans for him. "We want to be ready if he ever plans to go overseas to study," she explained.
When asked if she has plans to have another child, Sharon said that she loves children very much, and that if she were 10 years younger, she would definitely have two or three kids. "But for now, we will wait another year to see if fate is willing to give us another child," she said. "Even if it doesn't happen, I am already very happy to just have my son."
It’s no secret that Hong Kong actor Shawn Yue is fiercely protective of his nine-month-old son, Cody.
The first-time dad hurriedly deleted his social media posts when he accidentally uploaded a photo of the little one last year, and has consistently ensured that his son’s face is positioned away from the camera whenever he uploads any content that includes Cody.
However, his efforts were seemingly for naught as he inadvertently provided a source of not one, but multiple photos of a little boy believed to be Cody.
On February 15, he uploaded a photo of himself with good pal Eddie Peng’s mother and sister on his Instagram, and tagged Eddie’s sister in the post. Curious fans clicked in to her profile, where they found a goldmine of photos.
Shawn was seen carrying a baby in the photos, with the child’s face in full view. Many quickly guessed that the kid was Shawn’s son, and remarked that the little boy was even more adorable than they had imagined.
Since then, Shawn has since untagged Eddie’s sister from his post, and she has reportedly also taken down the photos from her account. The actor has yet to comment on whether the baby in the photo was indeed Cody, but keen-eyed netizens have noticed that the shoes that the baby wore match those that Shawn has previously uploaded of Cody.
Shawn and his wife Sarah Wang tied the knot in December 2017 and welcomed their son in May last year.
