Barbie Hsu gives birth to baby girl

Taiwanese actress Barbie Hsu has given birth to a baby girl.

The 37-year-old star announced the birth of her first child in a post on her microblog on Thursday afternoon.

She then followed up with two photos of her baby on Friday. She and her husband Wang Xiaofei can be seen kissing the head of their newborn baby in the photo.

Hsu married Chinese entrepreneur Wang in 2011 after a courtship of just 20 days.

Wang said on his microblog account that his wife and daughter were healthy, and thanked everyone for their concern.

Meanwhile, Barbie's younger sister TV host Dee Hsu also expressed her happiness on her Weibo page. "I'm really happy for you both, all the hardship was worth it!" she said.
