Cecilia Cheung‘s (張栢芝) appearance on the second season of Chinese variety show, Sisters Who Make Waves (乘风破浪的姐姐), has once again put her in the spotlight. Usually keeping a slender figure even after three children, the 40-year-old actress was surprisingly seen with a belly bump more than once in recent snapshots.
In one photo, she wore a tight-fitting white dress while preparing for her commercial shoot, which once again highlighted her bulging mid-section. On another occasion, she was spotted during a grocery store trip wearing a purple sweater with a protruding belly. Although the photos have stirred up discussions on whether Cecilia is expecting her fourth child, she said that she was wearing a pair of pants with a loose waistband at the grocery store which gave the illusion of a thicker waistline.
Using her social media to further clarify the pregnancy rumors, Cecilia uploaded a photo of herself in a loose shirt. Up against the wind, her mid-section appeared to be flat. Later, she also posted an exercise video, which showed that she ran for approximately two hours.
In the latest episode of Happy Camp <快樂大本營>, Cecilia shot down the pregnancy rumors. Happy with three sons, she said, “They are enough. I will not have any more children! I’m not young anymore. Compared to the exciting onscreen work, I care more about whether I’m truly [happy] and living freely.”
Currently a single mother, Cecilia admitted that her top criteria is a “sense of security” from potential suitors. “Without security, even if you give me fireworks, jewelry, or designer bags every day would be useless!”
