Chinese superstar Fan Bingbing is said to be pregnant, China Press reported.

Speculation that she is expecting started when she was spotted with a slightly bigger tummy.

Fan, who accepted the marriage proposal of her boyfriend, Chinese actor Li Chen, in September, has said that she wants to have a baby next year.

  • He has finally popped the question.
  • Against a sea of pink roses, Li Chen got down on one knee before Fan Bingbing and slipped a ring onto her finger during her 36th birthday party.
  • The 38-year-old Chinese actor shared the good news on his Weibo page with the accompanying caption: "Us, forever..." which was echoed by "Forever, and ever" on his fiancee's Weibo page.
  • According to Chinese media reports, the proposal took place at an intimate dinner party filled with pink and white blooms as well as six fondant cakes decorated with Fan's favourite cats.
  • Fan wrote on Weibo the following day: "I feel that my life is complete. I don't want the stars in the sky, just happiness in life. I am very blessed."
  • It was a great week for the actress at work too, as she had just clinched Best Actress award for her role in I Am Not Madame Bovary at 31st Golden Rooster Awards.
  • Fan also dropped hints that Li was husband material. She revealed in a Taiwanese talk show last year that he would be her last boyfriend.
  • And ever since Li and Fan announced that they were dating in May 2015, there have been numerous rumours of the couple getting engaged.
  • During the proposal, Li also presented Fan a bride doll made in her likeness.
  • He reportedly spent four months convincing Canadian artist Marina Bychkova to agree to the custom order by sharing Fan's photos and videos, as well as sharing the couple's love story.
  • The handcrafted doll took one year to complete and cost US$300,000 (S$403,500).
