Actress Liu Ling Ling on being a mum at 50

May 11, 2014 - 1:10am


Instead of hearty congratulations, what she got after she gave birth last September were mostly malicious talk and cutting remarks.

The worst of the gossipmongers had it that getai veteran and actress Liu Ling Ling had bought or adopted a baby.

More hurtful were the nasty comments, especially since she had her baby son via in-vitro fertilisation at 50.

It did not help that the status of Liu’s marriage to her businessman husband had also previously been the subject of media scrutiny, with rumours swirling that they were estranged.

Motherhood was not a decision she made rashly, she reiterates.

“Right from the start, I knew it wasn’t going to be easy – from pregnancy to birth, or even thereafter,” says Liu, 51. “But I have not regretted it at all. Being a mother enriches your health, your well-being and mostly, your life.”
