Cecilia Cheung ((Traditional Chinese:張柏芝, Simplified Chinese: 张柏芝, Pinyin: Zhāng Bózhī) is a Hong Kong actress and cantopop singer based in Hong Kong. She is the wife of Nicholas Tse(謝霆鋒), thus being the daughter-in-law of Patrick Tse and Deborah Lee. She and Nicholas have two sons, Lucas and Quintus Tse. She is considered a "Sing girl"—an actress who first received media attention through starring alongside Stephen Chow, and later went on to have a successful career of her own. She was also involved in the 2008 Edison Chen photo scandal.
Her career began in 1998, when she was offered to appear in a TV commercial advertising lemon tea. She caught the attention of Stephen Chow after shooting the ad. Later, Cheung made her film debut as a young nightclub hostess in Stephen Chow's King of Comedy (1999), followed soon after by Fly Me to Polaris (1999). The latter role earned her the award for Best Newcomer at the Hong Kong Film Awards. In the same year, Cheung launched her singing career with her first Cantopop album Any Weather (1999). For Derek Yee's romantic drama Lost in Time (2003), Cheung won the award for Best Actress at the 2004 Hong Kong Film Awards. She played a young woman who lost her fiancé to a traffic accident which left her as a grieving single mother struggling to make ends meet.
Cheung has been linked to Hong Kong male singers such as Daniel Chan and Jordan Chan. She then dated Nicholas Tse in early 2002, but then split with Tse late that year when Tse got back with his ex-girlfriend, singer Faye Wong. Later she was rumored to have dated a younger John Kim before the relationship ended in 2003. Cheung suffered serious depression and eating disorders after the break-up with Tse. Cheung and Tse were first reported to be "getting back together" in early 2006 and on 31 July 2006, Tse officially admitted dating Cheung in an interview with Commercial Radio Hong Kong 881/903.
In September 2006, Tse showed off his wedding ring at the Hong Kong International Airport, announcing he and Cheung had been married in a secret wedding ceremony in the Philippines.
On the 8 January 2007 episode of TVB's Entertainment Scoop, Nicholas' father, Patrick Tse, confirmed that Cheung was approximately three months pregnant with the couple's first child. Around March 2007 on the episode of TVB's Entertainment Scoop it was said that their child, a baby boy, is due in August. On August 2, 2007, Cheung gave birth to a son, named Lucas. On May 12, 2010, she gave birth to the couple's second son, Quintus.
