Taiwanese-canadian actor Mark Chao’s latest Weibo update has all his fans in a tizzy! After years of batting away pregnancy rumours, the 34-year-old star seems to confirm his wife’s pregnancy in a short (and slightly cryptic) message.

But now, we can say, ‘Yes, thank you everyone for all your continuous well wishes’.”
Eagle-eyed fans began speculating that the couple were expecting when the 39-year-old Gao Yuanyuan, a Chinese actress and model, appeared at an event with a fuller-looking face and covered her belly the whole time.
