Contrary to her protective stance earlier, Cecilia revealed Marcus’s face in a recent self-taken video.
In 2018, Cecilia Cheung (張栢芝) announced the birth of her third child Marcus Cheung (張禮承), sending out shock waves and evoking numerous guesses about the identity of her child’s father. Protecting Marcus from the public glare, Cecilia would always use emoji stickers or photo angles to hide his face in her social media updates. Recently, the actress did a sudden U-turn by revealing Marcus in a video taken at home, in which the child’s dark-colored hair and distinctly Asian facial shape and features shattered previous gossip of his father being a Caucasian man.
Marrying Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒) in 2006, Cecilia had two sons, Lucas (謝振軒) and Quintus (謝振南) before the couple divorced in 2011. When Marcus was born, Cecilia kept strictly mum about the identity of her son’s father and even left that field blank on his birth certificate. At the start of the year, she retaliated fiercely online when a stranger tried to snap a photo of Marcus when they were out.
Hints of Her Intentions to Unveil Marcus
In the video uploaded online, Cecilia could be seen chasing Marcus – who is on his toy car around in their home, capturing him from the front as he moved towards her. With his bright eyes and high nose bridge, Marcus looks especially adorable with his slightly chubby limbs and round belly, bearing a close resemblance to mommy. The 40-year-old joked that she could get a good workout, “one of the best weight loss exercises,” by chasing him around.
Looking back at Cecilia’s social media posts during this period, there were signs that she was slowly relaxing her habitual practice of shielding Marcus from public view, as seen from how his plaited hairstyle was revealed in a photo taken on their overseas trip. The child’s side view could also be spotted in the reflective glass shown in a video of her birthday celebrations, as could his blonde-tinted hair in a recent family portrait.
Netizens Speculate on Identity of Marcus’s Father
As Cecilia frequently visits Singapore, it was rumored at one point that Marcus’s father was a Singaporean millionaire. Mainland Chinese businessman Sun Donghai (孫東海), who bought Cecilia a 60 million yuan bungalow in 2015, was also pointed at as the potential father. Another candidate was Taiwanese actor He Menghuai (何孟懷), who is nine years her junior. Romantic rumors and talk of marriage emerged between the two, which Cecilia quickly denied.
The last “candidate” and most popular guess was Cecilia’s rumored boyfriend Leo, a British engineer. His frequent appearances at the actress’s family gatherings when she moved to Singapore after her divorce years ago, and the fact that Marcus appeared to be of mixed ancestry, made him the prime “suspect”.
