Chinese businessman and former actor Li Yapeng disclosed that his daughter, Li Yan, who was born with a cleft palate, has gone for another corrective operation in August this year.
Li Yan, 12, is the daughter of Li and his ex-wife, Chinese pop queen Faye Wong.
In an interview with Instyle China magazine, Li, 47, disclosed that his daughter did not show any anxiety before the operation, which was conducted under general anaesthesia.
"I was the one who was especially nervous and worried before wheeling her into the operating theatre," he said.
He said Li Yan smiled at him and asked to take a selfie with him. He squatted near the head of the bed so that she could do so.
He went downstairs alone after she entered the operating theatre and wept quietly at the side of the road.
