Barbie Hsu: I am not pregnant yet
It’s another false alarm in baby news after Barbie Hsu denied being pregnant. The actress emphasised on her microblog: “Please be patient. I’ll announce personally if I have any good news. I don’t want this ‘misunderstanding’ to stress me up.”
The Taiwanese artiste, who is well-known for her role as Shan Cai in Taiwanese idol drama Meteor Garden, recently rejected an invitation to reunite onstage with former onscreen co-stars, boyband F4 for Jiangsu TV’s Spring Festival Gala next month. This immediately sparked a flurry of speculation that Barbie is finally pregnant with her first child.
According to an insider, most of Barbie’s friends in Beijing are already aware of this good news but she refused to disclose the news to the public due to the “three months rule” (according to old age beliefs, sharing the news before one becomes three months pregnant would lead to a miscarriage).
Talks are rife that she would dedicate most of her time to take care of her pregnancy and has declined all future work assignments.
However, the rumours have effectively been quashed, following Barbie’s clarification on her microblog post on Tuesday.
The 36-year-old spurred countless baby rumours ever since she openly expressed her desire to have a child after marrying Chinese businessman Wang Xiaofei in March 2011. In order to conceive, the petite actress who was once a vegetarian even changed her eating habits by consuming meat in order to gain weight.
