Zhang Ziyi to return to filming after daughter's one-month birthday

1 February 2016 / 8 months 3 weeks ago

New mother and Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi is finally ready to make her return to the entertainment industry after a five-month break. 

According to Jaynestars, after taking a break during her pregnancy, she is now ready after her daughter has reached the one-month-old mark. 

On Jan 27, Zhang Ziyi and husband Wang Feng celebrated their daughter’s one-month-old birthday.

Both are accustomed to treating their daughter like a princess and showed off various cakes and cookies, including a pink cake decorated with frosted baby clothes and shoes. The cake proudly proclaimed, “I’m 1 month old.”

Zhang Ziyi also posted a photo of their daughter’s legs and feet on her Weibo, saying, “Hello, friends of Mom and Dad. I am your little friend, Xing Xing. Today, I am one month old! I’ve been playing the whole afternoon, and now I’m going to sleep. Bye-bye.”

Due to her pregnancy, Zhang Ziyi has not accepted any filming or advertising offers, apart from filming 'Oh My God' at the beginning of last year and appearing in one of her husband’s music videos.

However, the actress is poised to reclaim her nickname of “International Zhang” with her newest project, a comedy film titled East/West.

Zhang Ziyi will be the female lead and one of the producers. The movie will be helmed by American director Jason Winer, best known for being one of the directors of the sitcom Modern Family.
