Singer Faye Wong's ex-husband Li Yapeng has shown his support in light of reports about Wong's renewed romance with Hong Kong actor Nicholas Tse.
He wrote on Weibo: "Being together in life and death, disregarding one's safety or fulfiling another's wish...there are many expressions of love in the world and we should give each our blessing. Mother of my child, I give you my blessing, go for it!"
The Chinese actor's sweet message was met with enthusiastic response from netizens, with many praising him for being "generous", and "China's best ex-husband", reported the China News portal.
A few wondered if Li was "crying as he was typing the message," but most of his followers sent him messages wishing that he too, would find his other half soon.
According to reports, Faye Wong briefly liked the post of a fan who called the couple "a match made in heaven" on Weibo on Monday, which seemed to confirm her reconcilation with actor Nicholas Tse. But she later unliked it, reported NetEase.
Faye 'happier with Nic'

She is lying in bed and playing with her mobile phone as he sits beside her and chats.
She is animated as they converse, stamping her feet on the bed and kicking in the air. He gets up to go to the kitchen, but not before giving her a kiss on the hand.
In the kitchen, he sits alone, but not for long. She approaches him, bends forward to talk to him, then kisses him and runs off.
Two teenagers in love? They happen to be pop queen Faye Wong and leading man Nicholas Tse who, in a wild tabloid dream come true, have resumed their MayDecember romance a year after she divorced actor Li Yapeng.
The story was broken last Saturday by China's Sohu news website, which published Fengxing studio's photos of what it said was the couple's four-day rendezvous in the singer's apartment in Beijing's Chaoyang district.
Hong Kong's Apple Daily acquired Fengxing's footage of the couple's kisses and posted it online in multiple parts, along with blow-by-blow transcripts.
NetEase news website, quoting Fengxing, said a member of the studio saw Wong's car at a supermarket close to Chaoyang Park by chance last Monday. When Tse's car appeared and Wong climbed into it after doing her shopping, the photographer followed them.
Wong, 45, and Tse, 34, then holed up in her home for a few sweet days, Sohu said. Not only did he cook for her, but they also did household chores and watched television together. And, oh yeah, they kissed.
Yesterday, Oriental Daily News said Wong's close friend, actress Vicki Zhao, was instrumental in getting the couple back together, 11 years after they broke up and went on to marry and divorce other people.
In March, when Zhao was a guest on Tse's travel and food programme, Chef Nic, she teased him and said he must have charmed many women with his cooking. He said: "I've never had a lock on anyone, there's no one with me."
But she dropped him a hint that Wong had never gotten over him, saying: "Someone isn't with you, but you have a lock on her heart." Wong and Tse had long lost contact with each other, but Zhao helped them reconnect, the newspaper said, citing unnamed sources.
