Constance Wu is celebrating motherhood with a belated Christmas gift.
The ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ star, who is known for her notoriously private life, has secretly become a first-time mother.
According to E! News, the 38-year-old actress reportedly welcomed a baby girl with her boyfriend, musician Ryan Kattner over the summer.
The news comes as a big surprise to her fans, as Constance Wu has been keeping a very low-profile since the pandemic and never publicly addressed her pregnancy.
“They are doing great, and they’re so excited and happy,” a source told E! News, who was first to bring up the news to spotlight. However, no further details about the newborn child are known as of yet.
The new mom reportedly keeps her private life away from the public eye and has not been active on social media ever since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in March. She has also labeled her Instagram and Twitter pages “defunct” after posting for the last time in May 2020 and December 2019 on each respective site, reports E! Online.
Constance Wu, better known for starring in ‘Hustlers’ opposite Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Huang in ABC’s ‘Fresh Off the Boat,’ has previously opened up about facing criticism for dating non-Asian men in November 2018.
“Hate and criticism in any form do not feel good,” she told StyleCaster. “But I do think having the freedom to express things that are painful to certain people and start conversations about deeper issues.”
“Unfortunately, sometimes those conversations are targeted, but I’m very confident in the choices I make and why I make them,” she added.
She further continued, saying “So if and when they are targeted at me if this is a means for someone else to figure out and discover the things that matter to them or the things they feel about themselves, then I’m all for it. Because I’m OK.”
Before dating the ‘Man Man’ band frontman, Constance Wu has reportedly dated ‘The Mortuary Collection’ actor Ben Hethcoat, with whom she broke up in February 2018, reports Aceshowbiz.
