The actress is rumoured to be keeping mum about her pregnancy due to Chinese traditional beliefs
Taiwanese actress Barbie Hsu is speculated to be pregnant with her first child after she was seen with a slightly protruding tummy at an event recently.
Ever since her marriage with Chinese entrepreneur Wang Xiaofei in November 2010, the couple had been trying to conceive a baby but without success. It was rumoured that Wang's mother had ordered the entrepreneur to divorce Barbie as she wants a grandson soon.
However, at an event in Shanghai earlier this month, the 35-year-old was spotted removing her heels and changing to flats right after the event ended. Assisted by her assistant up the stairs and taking extra care, the actress was seen with her tummy slightly protruding which led to rumours that she had successfully conceived a baby.
According to a tip-off, Barbie and Wang had kept the news under wraps due to a Chinese traditional belief that pregnancies should not be announced during the first trimester.
It is rumoured that Wang's family had been preparing tonics for the actress daily and had ordered her to cut down on wearing heels.
