KUALA LUMPUR (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Chinese superstar Fan Bingbing is said to be pregnant, China Press reported.

Speculation that she is expecting started when she was spotted with a slightly bigger tummy.

Fan, who accepted the marriage proposal of her boyfriend, Chinese actor Li Chen, in September, has said that she wants to have a baby next year.

Li and Fan have yet to decide on their wedding date.

A-lister Fan, 36, rose to fame in the late 90s for her turn in TV series My Fair Princess.

In September this year, a video of the party where Li Chen proposed to her went  viral.

That same month, she went to the Golden Rooster Awards in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia, with her newly minted fiance and picked up a Best Actress prize for the movie I Am Not Madame Bovary.

She had also won Best Supporting Actress at 2007's Golden Horse Film Awards for her role in The Matrimony.

Li, 39, has been in television series since the 90s and is perhaps best known for his role in the variety show Keep Running.

It is unclear when the pair first met, although rumours have swirled that they did so on the set of The Empress Of China in 2014.
