Thirty-six-year-old Barbie Hsu clearly lost her svelte figure of yesteryear when she appeared at an endorsement event recently, inciting speculation of a bun in the oven. However, the actress, who married Chinese entrepreneur Wang Xiaofei in 2010, denied the rumours on her microblog. She wrote: “I will announce the news when I do get pregnant.”
Barbie also admitted that her figure has indeed gone out ‘out-of-shape’, saying, “My cheeks have shifted out of position, my waist has thickened and my belly is ‘growing freely’.”
Despite her clarifications, her ballooned figure sparked talks of a ‘pregnancy’ which she again refuted on her microblog – “Everybody, please stop staring at my tummy and making guesses! There’s no way I can hide it if I’m really expecting!”
After tying the knot two years ago, Barbie has expressed her wish for a baby on several occasions and she once mentioned that her biggest dream in life at the moment is to have a child.
She claimed to be working hard at achieving her ‘goal’ and said, “There are many sacrifices to make at my age to get pregnant successfully and I hope everyone is a little more patient [for the good news]!”
