When you think of reel-to-real life couples, celebrity couple Cecilia Liu and Nicky Wu immediately come to mind. The duo first got to know each other on the set of the 2011 period drama, Scarlet Heart, and soon fell in love.
After dating for three years, they tied the knot in a lavish destination wedding in Bali, Indonesia in 2016. In April, the couple welcomed their firstborn, a baby son.
Over the weekend, Nicky’s close friend uploaded a picture of the new dad, sharing that they had met up for a meal to catch up. In his caption, Nicky’s friend shared that he had met with Nicky’s son as well.
“First time meeting his son, Bubu (步步). He’s too cute and basically a mini Nicky,” his friend wrote in his caption.
Fans soon caught on to the fact that little Bubu’s nickname was derived from the Chinese name of Scarlet Heart (步步惊心). The revelation came as a welcome surprise for many, as the couple has yet to reveal the name of their baby.
Many also welcomed the fact that Cecilia and Nicky had chosen to pay homage to the drama that had helped to bring them together, by choosing to give their son a nickname reminiscent of Scarlet Heart itself.
