Vicki Zhao and her billionaire husband Huang Youlong are one of the wealthiest couples in showbiz, but instead of chronicling their luxurious lifestyles online, they've preferred to keep their private lives, well, private.
What people do know is that they have a 10-year-old daughter, April, who appears from time to time on Vicki's social media.
What people don’t know, however, is that Youlong has a son from a previous relationship. Jens, as he is known to the media, is said be 21 this year, and his mother is allegedly Youlong’s first girlfriend. There are also contradicting reports as to whether Youlong and Jens’ mother were married when he was conceived.
Jens' identity came to light recently after netizens discovered his Weibo page, which he started updating in December. They only realised his connection to Vicki when he posted this pic (see above) of him with April.
And it seems he and his stepsister are very close, judging from this sweet letter that April wrote to him. “Dear Jens my brother, I love you. I miss you very much so I pack (sic) some snack for you (…) and you can eat them! I love you. I am going for camp [on] Thursday and Friday!”
Other netizens have also dug out old interviews given by Youlong where he talked about Jens, like how his son has been a fan of Vicki’s from a young age, and how he still vividly remembers his stepmum's role in hit drama My Fair Princess despite watching it as a child.
