Rocker proposes to Zhang with drone
HIGH-TECH PROPOSAL: At Zhang’s birthday party on Saturday, Wang sent a drone carrying a diamond ring flying in, then proposed to her on one knee.

After months of anticipation by fans, Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi's boyfriend has proposed.

And he did it in a high-tech yet romantic way, reported website NetEase.

At Zhang's birthday party on Saturday, Chinese rocker Wang Feng sent a white-coloured drone carrying a diamond ring flying in, accompanied by romantic music.

As friends such as singer Wang Lee Hom and Na Ying looked on, he went down on one knee and proposed.

Amid cheers and applause, Zhang's surprise turned to tears as she answered firmly, "Yes".

At an interview here in Singapore in December, she said she had not pressured Wang to marry her while referring to the Chinese media's scrutiny of their romance.

She turns 36 years old today.

Yesterday morning, Zhang wrote on her Sina Weibo account: "Yes, I will (marry you)," and posted a picture of a fireworks scene at her party.

During the proposal, Wang had tearfully said: "We have experienced happy times and bitter times. I hope Ziyi will always have happy times. If we grow old, I will still be able to look after you."

They then embraced and enjoyed a fireworks display.

Reports say that he gave her a 9.15-carat flawless diamond ring from London's Moussaieff Jewellery. He also gave her a ruby-diamond bracelet.

Zhang was born in the Year of the Goat and the party's theme was, as translated from Chinese, "Goat Year Wins Ziyi".

Wang, 43, also decorated the venue, which was unidentified in reports, with a backdrop wall filled with flowers.

Zhang previously dated Chinese TV host Sa Beining and Israeli billionaire Vivi Nevo.

It will be the third marriage for Wang, who has two daughters, one from a previous relationship and another from a marriage.

He announced that his second marriage was over in September 2013.

Their romance came to light as early as July 2013 when they were seen in Los Angeles while she was there promoting The Grandmaster.

Two months later, they were seen sharing a blanket on a plane.

And a month later, at a Shanghai concert, he pledged publicly to make her "the happiest woman in the world".
