Actress Zhang Ziyi Reveals Her Newborn Daughter’s Sweet Name

Actress Zhang Ziyi, best known on this side of the world for her role in Ang Lee’s 2000 epic Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and as a red carpet fashion icon, and her musician husband Wang Feng welcomed a baby girl last month, just two days after Christmas. In honor of her little girl turning one month old, the star shared some super sweet pics on her Weibo, China’s premiere microblogging site (think Facebook meets Tumblr meets Twitter) and also revealed her daughter’s creative baby name.

The actress posted this sweet photo of her one-month-old on her profile. We translated the caption for you, and it reads: “Hello friends of mommy and daddy: I am little Xing Xing. Today I am a month old!! I played all afternoon and now I’m taking a nap. Bye bye.” Aww. We’re not sure yet if Xing Xing is the baby’s full name or just a nickname — it’s common for Chinese parents to double up a character from a child’s name as a pet name.

The Chinese character for Xing, however, literally translates as “awake.” Hmm… maybe the little kiddo has been keeping her parents up at night?
