Popular Taiwanese actress Barbie Hsu (Meteor Garden, Summer's Desire) has announced the heartbreaking news of the termination of her third pregnancy.

She had just confirmed her pregnancy on April 11 after media inquiry. However, the fetal development was problematic and was closely monitored by her obstetrician, who then advised termination because there was no heartbeat.

Barbie and her husband, Chinese entrepreneur Wang Xiaofei, were praying for a miracle, but eventually decided to accept the doctor's advice after discussing the situation with their families.

After her surprise marriage announcement in 2010, Barbie gave birth to a daughter in 2014, and then a son in 2016. Unfortunately, it's been a difficult third pregnancy for the 41-year-old actress, who admitted that the pregnancy was a surprise. When she was seven weeks along, she was hospitalized for an epileptic seizure that was triggered by a cold.

On May 7, the couple issued a joint statement. They thanked everyone who had expressed best wishes and concern by explaining the sad outcome and difficult decision involved. They also said that Barbie is currently recuperating well.

Barbie added that although her fated connection with this baby was short-lived, it has touched her further to cherish the time spent with the family. That's what happiness is about.



We would also like to extend our best wishes to Barbie Hsu and her family.
