Actress Zhang Ziyi on Sunday debuted her baby in front of guests at a celebration marking the 100th day of the child's birth.

Back in Beijing after giving birth in December in America, Zhang, 37, posed for pictures on stage with her husband, rocker Wang Feng, and their newborn.

They carried the child, who has small eyes like her dad and whose baby name is Xingxing, which means "awaken" in English.

Wang's daughter from a previous relationship, 10-year-old Manxi, played the piano.

After Zhang called her up on stage, Manxi turned emotional, bursting into tears, reported Ming Pao Daily News. Zhang consoled her, and the girl said: "Thanks papa and mama!"

The evening's theme, "Awakened by Love" is to convey that Xingxing was born out of love and she brings greater love to her family, said Ming Pao.

Wang, 44, spared no expense, filling the room in a Beijing hotel with pink and white flowers and decorations of little lambs as Xingxing was born in the Year of the Sheep.

And Zhang was back to her former svelte shape, posing in a red jumpsuit.

Guests included film director Feng Xiaogang, singer Na Ying, actresses Ruby Lin and Huang Yi, as well as film company bosses Wang Zhonglei and Yu Dong.

Zhang posted pictures of the celebration on Weibo, writing, "Xingxing, having you is what I'm proudest of. Thanks for picking me as your mum. Love is the most important."
