Zhang Ziyi, Wang Feng Hold Big 100-Day Banquet for Daughter
Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi (章子怡) and rock singer Wang Feng (汪峰) welcomed their daughter, Wang Xingxing (汪醒醒) in December of last year. Though the new parents kept a low profile in the few months after their daughter’s birth, the Chinese superstars decided to celebrate their daughter’s 100th day into the world by hosting a large party, attended by over 300 guests.
The 100-day banquet is Xingxing’s first appearance. The 30-table party, which was held at the five-star Rosewood Hotel in Beijing on Sunday, was a million-dollar event. It carried the theme “Blooming in Love”—meaning that Xingxing was born from love.
In a short video presented at the banquet, Ziyi wrote to her daughter, “Having you is what gives me the most pride. Everything from the past was just sheets on a mattress. My life officially started after you. Thank you for choosing me as your mom.”
Wang Feng wrote, “Your father has seen everything your mother has sacrificed. She is really an amazing woman and a great mother. Wishing you a happy and peaceful growth. Your happiness is your mother’s greatest reward. Mommy and daddy will be with you in every step of the way. Nothing is more important than love.”
The video also showed a 2-minute clip of Wang Feng proposing to Ziyi, as well as day-to-day short clips of Xingxing during the first few months of her life.
Numerous celebrities from the industry attended the banquet, including director Feng Xiaogang (冯小刚), Ruby Lin (林心如), Jane Zhang (张靓颖), Christy Chung (钟丽缇), Huang Yi (黄奕), Yao Chen (姚晨), and more.
Ziyi, Wang Feng, and their cute baby daughter Xingxing appeared on stage at approximately 7:30 pm. Wang Feng wore a black tux while holding little Xingxing, who was dressed in a white dress, in his arms. Ziyi wore an elegant long-sleeved red gown. They took turns holding Xingxing while they welcomed their guests. Ziyi’s stepdaughter, Little Apple, played the piano. She congratulated her parents and even called Ziyi “my mom.”
Wang Feng shared that it was Ziyi who though of the name Xingxing. Ziyi said, “Our daughter really loves to sleep, but she has to drink her milk every two to three hours. Whenever it’s time for her to eat, I would say, ‘Baby, xingxing (wake up)! It’s time for milk!’ That’s how she got that name!”
Wang Feng added, “From her pregnancy, to giving birth, to our daughter’s 100th day, I was there with [Ziyi]. I’ve experienced what she had to experience. She insisted to have a natural birth and she insists to breastfeed. To be honest, she had many other options on the table, but she chose to go through it all. Mother has worked hard!”
In tears, Ziyi responded, “I used to believe that my career is to do my best on screen, but now, I hope to do well in my life too. It’s been a while since I’ve greeted everyone. This is also an opportunity for me to see everyone!”
