He said, “First off, as Zheng Shuang’s father, I sincerely apologize to everyone. As a parent, I didn’t guide my child correctly. Thinking about all those thoughts, I feel very guilty thinking about it now.”
As for the audio, Zheng Chenghua explained he thought their relationship would end up well and even envisioned their future together. He explained the night of the recording, Zhang Heng’s parents came to their home talking about their future plans. Zheng Chenghua said he was putting up a macho act like a big brother and wanted to argue back and forth with the other party, which resulted in the “overly intense words” he said.

Zheng Chenghua once again apologized, “I sincerely, sincerely regret it and apologize, but this isn’t how we really feel inside. Once the relationship ruptured, the first thing we wanted to do was to draw the lines, that is to never have any contact. Don’t want to have any type of relations. First off, that’s how we thought. Never thought about really doing it. Once the children are born, we would definitely take responsibility. We have responsibility to raise them, teach them, and we have to plan for the future. Later on, we really did that. We didn’t do anything according to those overly intense words. I truly, truly believe those comments I said that day are wrong, no matter what. I express my sincerest apologies to everyone for the comments made that day on behalf of the three of us.”

When asked how he felt about the surrogacy, Zheng Chenghua felt it was wrong. He urged everyone not to follow what Zheng Shuang and they did. He explained they chose surrogacy because of work reasons and that Zheng Shuang’s health wasn’t good. He said Zheng Shuang’s surrogacy was done on the basis of medical considerations where the person can’t give birth due to existing health conditions that precludes them from being pregnant.

Zheng Chenghua said he asked Zheng Shuang whether the surrogacy was legal when she first came to him with the idea. She told him it was legal in the US, but he told her it has to be legal as she is a public figure. Zheng Shuang told him, “Dad, my body doesn’t allow me to give birth. We really yearn for that domestic bless and of course like [children].” He also said they had already renovated a nursery at home and bought a baby carriage in preparation to bring the babies home to raise. He also said he will no longer say negative information about Zhang Heng taking into consideration that he is the father of his grandkids and didn’t want them to have any psychological harm.

The damage was done. Both are not mature enough to have children. Her ex is still hiding behind his friends and ZS’s side is not convincing enough to admit their faults. This is a disaster. Just apologize to the kids that’s all I want to see from both her ex and ZS. Admit they are wrong to their children.
Nice backpedalling there but it still brushes over the whole illegal surrogacy, trying to return/abort the kids like an unwanted shoe. Do they really think they have in any way demonstrated they would be good parents? What about when the children become literate and read all these articles about their mother, clearly and publicly not wanting them? Why the lag to release all of this? Crocodile tears to save a dead career.
