CHINESE actress Zhang Ziyi (pic) 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.

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