It was Huang Xiaoming’s (黄晓明) 43rd birthday on November 13. The actor is currently filming on location so he couldn’t celebrate it with family. At 12:01 am, he posted a picture of a past birthday celebration with his parents versus a current picture of him on set. He included the caption, “Imagining how I would be spending my birthday vs. how I am spending my birthday at this moment.”
Seven hours later, Huang Xiaoming uploaded photos of him filming on location on his birthday. Good friend, Vicki Zhao (赵薇), also wished Huang Xiaoming a happy birthday, saying, “Happy birthday, Big Beard! Wishing you health and happiness! You have to be happy, Little Xiaoming!”
Four hours later, Huang Xiaoming posted a video of his son, “Little Sponge” (小海綿), singing happy birthday to him. He also said, “Daddy, I love you. Wishing you a happy birthday!” He included the caption, “My son singing happy birthday to me for the first time in my life.”
However, netizens were waiting for Angelababy (杨颖) to express her birthday greetings to her husband. She remained quiet all day and hasn’t expressed any wishes to him yet. In the past three years, she had dedicated birthday posts to Huang Xiaoming.
Angelababy quickly trended in the top 10 hot searches on Weibo with netizens talking about her not wishing Huang Xiaoming a happy birthday.
