On April 24, Barbie Hsu (徐熙媛) gave birth to a baby girl. The first-time mother was ecstatic and shared a copy of her daughter’s footprints. The baby weighed over six pounds and has been nicknamed by her parents as “Long-legged Girl”.
Barbie fell in love with Mainland Chinese entrepreneur Wang Xiaofei (汪小菲) and after a whirlwind romance of twenty days, the couple got married in a lavish wedding ceremony in Hainan Island in 2011. The 37-year-old Taiwanese actress has since dramatically reduced her workload to focus on her family life. Barbie was rumored to have difficulty conceiving and kept her first pregnancy a secret until well past her first trimester.
Prior to the birth, Barbie’s health condition was carefully monitored by doctors. She chose to give birth via Cesarean section on April 24 at West Garden Hospital in Taipei. Xiaofei accompanied her inside the delivery room, while their family nervously waited outside in the hall. Barbie’s younger sister, Dee Hsu (徐熙娣), said, “When I was waiting outside, I felt even more nervous than giving birth myself!”
At 3:30 p.m., Barbie and Xiaofei’s daughter finally arrived. Although Barbie cannot be reached for comment yet, her manager assured that Barbie is recovering well while surrounded by her loving family. The parents will take time to pick a suitable name for the baby, calling her “Long-legged Girl” and “Little Angel” for the time being.
Xiaofei shared on his Sina Weibo blog, “It has been a difficult year for my wife. I’m thankful for everyone’s concern. My beloved wife and daughter are both healthy and safe. Thank you!”
