William Feng (馮紹峰) rang in the new year by finally announcing that his wife, Zanilia Zhao (趙麗穎), is pregnant. Although Zanilia was speculated to be already pregnant when they got married in October and she was subsequently photographed with a growing belly bump, the couple ignored all gossip and didn’t directly comment on the baby news for months.
Updating his Sina Weibo blog today, William wrote, “Did you know, did you know we’re a family of three?” Zanilia immediately replied, “Let’s wait, let’s wait. Welcome 2019!”
The couple’s new Mainland Chinese drama, The Story of Minglan <知否知否应是绿肥红瘦>, aired on December 25 to lukewarm reception. The timing of their baby announcement is likely to help promote their new drama, while finding a good opportunity to finally acknowledge the arrival of their baby in 2019.
In October, an alleged ultrasound of Zanilia’s baby was leaked online. It is understood that the 31-year-old actress is carrying a boy and is already seven months pregnant. Zanilia’s due date is March 2019.
Both William and Zanilia have been resting at home without any filming projects for the last several months. Since Zanilia was already pregnant when the couple got married, there wasn’t enough time to plan a wedding banquet. William allegedly told family relatives that due to Zanilia’s pregnancy, it wasn’t convenient to take wedding photos. After their baby is born, the couple will make up for the photos, and possibly host a joint wedding and baby banquet after 100 days of birth.
