HONG KONG • Chinese entertainment's golden couple, Angelababy and Huang Xiaoming, welcomed a son in Hong Kong on Tuesday, they announced.

His company, Huang Xiaoming Studio, said on Weibo: "We want to share with you a happy moment: This morning, Angelababy gave birth to a son naturally, accompanied by Huang Xiaoming and family. The AH couple have a beautiful continuation of love. Henceforth, they are 1 + 1 = 3, which is probably what happiness looks like."

According to Apple Daily, Angelababy checked into a hospital on Monday after Huang and the couple's parents arrived in Hong Kong.

Huang is said to have been moved to tears at the birth.

The 27-year-old China-born, Hong Kong-based actress and the 39-year-old Chinese actor married in May 2015.
