TAIPEI • Chinese-American singer Wang Leehom came close to confirming rumours of Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi's pregnancy on Monday, after the friends went to a Madonna concert in the United States together, said Taiwanese newspapers.

On Sunday, he wrote on Weibo that he was on his way to "a legendary American singer's concert". On Monday, he shared a photo of the night before, when he, his wife and Zhang were attending Madonna's gig. He also thanked Zhang for her hospitality.

Zhang is said to have wed Chinese rocker Wang Feng and to be awaiting the arrival of her first child in the US. He is said to have two daughters from previous relationships.

In the photo posted by Wang Leehom, Zhang is mostly obscured by his wife and another unidentified woman.

Taiwanese newspapers including United Daily News asked Wang, who has a one-year-old daughter, whether he gave Zhang tips about parenthood. Instead of denying the pregnancy rumours, he said through his agent: "Good friends can chat about anything."
