Married since 2015, fans of the real-life Scarlet Heart <步步惊心> lovers Nicky Wu (吳奇隆) and Cecilia Liu Shishi (刘诗诗) have been dying to know about Cecilia’s rumored pregnancy, which really started to take flight after the couple were spotted visiting a Buddhist temple in Kyoto, Japan this past April. The temple—the Kiyomizu-dera—was established in the year 778 and is traditionally known to server visitors who are trying to get pregnant.
Nicky and Cecilia continued to stay hush on the pregnancy rumors, but in September, Nicky updated on his social media page that he was visiting UCLA Health in Los Angeles. UCLA Health is known for having an extensive network of obstetrics and gynecology clinics.
In October, a netizen suddenly congratulated Cecilia for carrying twins—a message that took the Internet by storm. When Cecilia attended a public fashion event that month—her first public appearance in months—netizens noted that she was dressed in a way that strategically hid her protruding belly.
On December 15, a source told gossip circles that a “three-character celebrity with the surname L” (assumed to be Cecilia) is pregnant with twins, and she obtained her pregnancy through in vitro fertilization (IVF). The process of IVF can be physically taxing for the mother, as Cecilia was required to take injections and medications that resulted in weight gain and bloating. Cecilia’s morning sickness had been particularly difficult, and she had been consistently vomiting.
