Newly-weds Zhao Liying and Feng Shaofeng confirm the yearlong rumors on Jan 1, 2019 to announce that they're having a baby. Feng Shaofeng wrote on weibo, "Did you know, did you know, it ought to be a family of three (a pun on the Chinese title of The Story of Minglan 知否知否应是绿肥红瘦)." Zhao Liying shared the post and said, "Waiting, waiting, welcoming 2019."

This confirmation hardly comes as a surprise since the couple have been the subject of non-stop baby rumors throughout the year. The two kept mum even after the announcement in October that they had gotten hitched

Rather than take anyone by surprise this time with their whirlwind romance announcements, let's just say they chose a very festive day to share the news! Zhao Liying has been away from the public eye on an indefinite hiatus, but she has been active on social media and openly commented on Feng Shaofeng's performance for the New Year's Celebrations last night, saying that Second Uncle (his character in The Story of Minglan) was both nervous and cute.

She also posted a rare selfie for The Story of Minglan Christmas Day premiere last week. Looking at the picture, she did have that pregnancy glow already. Congrats to the happy couple!

  2. Finally! They must have got sooooo overwhelmed by the media stalking them crazy and tons of people asking them the same question over and over and over.

    Yeah the truth is too obvious, should have just made the announcement earlier to avoid all those buzz.

    Congrats to them. Ying'er and her husband did wedding while pregnant, I don't see how it's bad. They should do theirs too. Either way, they will have to include their child in their wedding photos, whether it's during pregnancy or not.

    1. ''all those buzz'' kept her in the top of the most searched celebrities but I think that the buzz generated by acting performances is what a real actress should desires most...not rumors about who she is dating or about pregnancy

    2. I see, no wonder she's always the first in top search. She wasn't really working anymore, Ming Lan is airing but it isn't a great drama.

  3. Really ? That means the netizens and paparazzi were right ! Then why her post on Weibo(23 October 2018)about the netizens who spread rumors about her pregnancy https://www.weibo.com/1259110474/GFg0UEYuD?from=page_1006051259110474_profile&wvr=6&mod=weibotime&type=comment#_rnd1546327881239 ? More than 670000 LIKES ! Why is she always ambiguous? Marketing strategy for keeping her in the spotlight or what other reason ?

  4. I don't see how it's anyone's business whether she should admit to the pregnancy rumors or not prior to her announcement. Do people not know that the early stages of a woman's pregnancy is the most dangerous? If she had admit to the rumors while she was like a month to two pregnant, what if she ended up with a miscarriage? You usually do not announce your pregnancy until you are about or past 3 months (or first trimester overall) to be on the safe side. No mother wants to risk it. She does not need to admit to the rumors. She owes no one a explanation/confession. She is allow to announce her pregnancy when she is ready and when her pregnancy is at a lower risk of a miscarriage. This is a happy time for her as a mother, so she is allow to come out about it whenever she please. Please use your brain, people.

    Anyways, congratulations to the couple. Wishing both of them all the best and for a healthy baby this year in 2019!

    1. So this must be the reason of her sarcastic comments against spme netizens(for example the one posted on 23 October) Just curious: does this rule also apply for the marriage announces ? I mean because could be the risk of a divorce in the early months ?

      Delete
    2. Anonymous 4.a: no it doesnt apply to marriage. It’s a Chinese thinf, a few other Asian countries practice it too. They said announcing the pregnancy before 3 months can be bad luck and those are the easiest time to be miscarried so they re very tight-lipped until it past the 3 month mark

      Delete
    3. I agree. I didnt tell anyone about my pregnancy until mid way in the second trimester.

      Delete
    4. LOL Anon 4.a Yes it does apply to the marriage because her fans hate FSF so much that she cannot announce their dating stage, but just announce mirriage right away.

      People believe they announce their mirriage only because she is pregnant. She was hiding her stomach for a while, that means she likely passed the 3 months mark for quite a while already.

      Delete
    5. @Anonymous 4.d. You could be right. I read rumors about her belly that it is bigger than 3 months...some are saying it is about 6 months or even more. The Future will clarify the mystery...of course, if it will not be also hidden

      Delete
    6. That's what I feel really bad for ZLY. Her fans don't come up with good excuses for her, whenever the truth comes up then her fans look like fools.

      She definitely owe her fans a lot. They speak for her without needing her to explain anything. Then they got cheated and they still continue to love her. Not once or twice, many times. Does she care about her fans at all or only about getting top search? But still her fans don't even mind at all who are we to say anything?

  5. Congrats, great news for the new year - wishing them a healthy baby

  6. Congrats Yingbao. Usually people whether they are Asian or European likes to wait until the pregnancy is stable to announce the news. Besides, whether they announce it or not is their personal business. She has been hounded by paps for many years. She is popular so unfortunately she is in the limelight whether she likes it or not. I am happy that she is now married and expecting. She and Xiena can finally exchange tips on parentshood. Yeah!!!!!!

  7. I agree that it is definitely up to them when they want to reveal but the classy thing to do would have been to keep a dignified silence rather than keep denying and lying over and over again first about their relationship and next about the pregnancy.

    Compare them to Tang Yan and Luo Jin about their relationship and then marriage or Nicky Wu and Liu Shi Shi about the pregnancy; both those couples just kept quiet, ignored the rumour mongers and issued the news when they were ready to speak and everybody was very happy for them. ZLY and FSF just look silly when it turns out all the rumours were right all along so would have been better for them just to keep quiet in the first place.

    1. Congrats to them! I was thinking exactly like you. They didn't have to admit about their dating rumor & pregnancy. They didn't need to denied about & lied about them. Like when she posted the legs split picture - that was very silly. I like what NW & LSS and TY & LJ's style also.

      Delete
    2. Well only time will tell if she'd actually lied about her pregnancy when doing the legs split. Good thing about pregnancy, it can be calculated, so back then, according to a certain source, she was pregnant 3 months already(that baby should due b4 the chinese new yr) and now another source has her baby due in March but if they officially announced it now, then it has pass that trimester stage according to chinese tradition so that will have the baby due in May/June/July..let's wait and see who made a fool of whom.

    3. That's exactly what I thought too. I think FSF handled it well but for ZLY, maybe her IQ and EQ are just both problematic.

      YM and HW got well known for a shotgun marriage, but YM handled her pregnancy news well though. FSF said ZLY is unwilling to take their wedding photoshoot while pregnant, but I hope she would include her child in her wedding photo.
      YM is being criticzied for a bad mum but at least she had never deny her child, and she did the marriage ceremnoy because initially she wanted the best for her child. Later, because HW not willing to slow down his career she did the same thing to race with him, it ended up separating her from her child. Hopefully ZLY and FSF would slow down their career and dont do the same like YM and HW.

  8. When she denied these rumors, I actually felt very bad for her, yet she made a stupid fool out of herself and her fans.... I find her fans more annoying that they denied everything from her marriage to her pregnancy. They were even attacking people and yet here it is, the truth lol. Congrats to her and her husband I guess but next time she should use her brains a little more. She comes off as a hypocrite.

    1. I know right? Her fans said this, "I would only believe it when she announce it" like EEeeerm... didn't that happened before? They want another ambiguous announcement like the one about dating FSF, lol.

      And now, I don't know if she even make the announcement too, as far as I heard it was only FSF who did. And her reply to him was again, pretty ambiguous unless it's also part of the poem I didn't understand.

  9. So the media was correct about her being pregnant and I was right in saying this bitch is a two faced, a snake with two heads who fucking lied straight out in the open and even try to victimized her own self...wow what a Bitch!!

    1. What disgusting language! I don't agree with ZLY actions but using such language about her is unacceptable. There are better ways to express yourself than foul language and vulgarity.

      You can make comment, but please use a friendlier language tone. There is no need to use bad language. Thank you!

    3. Well damn... all she did was get pregnant.

  10. Yes, maybe ZLY denying the rumors instead of keeping quiet was probably not the best choice, but then again, she is allow to announce her pregnancy whenever she likes. It is her pregnancy, not ours. Also, ZLY doing the splits when she is pregnant is fine. There are many mothers who still exercises and do yoga (even the split) when pregnant. If the mother have been exercising prior to their pregnancy and their body is used to it, it will not affect their body/pregnancy in any means. We don't know how far along her pregnancy is. We only know that she is pregnant, so we can't make any judgements as to how far along she is or what's right and wrong for a mother to do. She knows her body best, better than any of us. I am sure she know what she's doing to keep her child from being harm. I am not a ZLY fan, but please stop being so critical of her actions. She's a new mother and still in the learning process. Instead of criticizing her, just give her your blessings whether you are a fan or not. If all you do is bash on someone due to your bias thoughts and lack of knowledge then you seriously need to get a life.

    1. 1st of all you don't know the story about the legs split. It's not about that action that we said she is wrong. There was a rumor that she was pregnant and a few months ago she denied it, to prove that she is not pregnant - she did the legs split. She made a fool out of herself. Yes, I'm happy for them and of course I'm congratulating them.
      Hopefully she learned this lesson. Thank you!

    2. If she did not make all those denials she would very much get all blessings but now people are laughing at her.

  11. They handled the announcement of this pregnancy so poorly, what with all the angry denials. But now lo and behold, it all ended up being true, and they have to backtrack. This just makes them look worse. Doing it the way they did also won't change the fact that everybody knows they had a shotgun marriage and married because she got pregnant.
