Chinese actress Vicki Zhao is now the proud mum of a baby girl, who was born on Sunday, 11 April at the Gleneagles Hospital, according to a Lianhe Zaobao report.
The actress' manager, Chen Rong, confirmed the news two days ago through a media statement, and said that mother and child is safe and well. It also confirmed that the 34-year-old Vicki is now a Singaporean permanent resident.
A post on the actress' website by the manager said: "The baby is very beautiful and has big eyes too."
The manager also confirmed Vicki's marriage to Chinese property businessman Huang You Long who is also a Singaporean permanent resident. She said: "Vicki is an ordinary traditional woman who got married and had a child in the proper order.
"But she has been unwilling to speak of her personal affairs and kept mum about her marriage and pregancy. I hope you don't mind."
Lianhe Zaobao quoted an unnamed source which said that her baby was born at the hospital by Caesearean section at around 11pm. This was not confirmed by medical staff. The paper also said that the couple were married in 2008, and it is believed the baby's father is her businessman husband.
When the Chinese daily paid a visit to the $4,248-a-night Tanglin Suite in the hospital on Wednesday, where Vicki was said to be resting, it was met by an unidentified woman who called herself Sun. The daily was denied entry by the woman. Lianhe Wanbao said Vicki had checked out on Wednesday.
Vicki has been keeping a very low profile on her love life. It was only when she was photographed with husband Huang at a celebratory dinner for her Chinese movie, Painted Skin, this year, that her romance made the news. In January this year news of her pregnancy was confirmed by Imperial Guard director, Daniel Lee, a movie that she was cast in. She was then photographed with her baby bump in March.
