Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi is said to be pregnant with her second child with husband Wang Feng, reported China Press.

After welcoming their daughter Xing Xing in 2015, Zhang had always wanted to fulfil Wang's dream of having a son.

It is learnt that Zhang, 40, has stopped all work as she is in the high-risk bracket due to her age.

Her appearance at the Cannes Film Festival next month will be her last job before she takes a break.

There has also been speculation that Zhang had already booked a room at a postnatal care centre.

Early this month, both Zhang and Wang were seen at Beijing airport, with Zhang being spotted with a baby bump.

In an episode of the second season of Viva La Romance, Wang described Zhang as a good mother as she insisted on breastfeeding despite going through the pain of breast engorgement.
