It's a girl!

Actress Zhang Ziyi, best known for her role the Academy Award-winning movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, posted a picture of two adult hands holding a baby's hands online Monday to announce the birth of her daughter. "December 27th, 2015, you, me, her ... With the birth of this little life, we have our own family," she wrote on Sina Weibo, a Chinese microblogging site. "Everything went safely and smoothly. Infinite gratitude!"

Ziyi's manager later confirmed that the actress had indeed given birth.

Other details, including the baby's name and birthplace, have yet to be revealed. However, reports claimed Ziyi gave birth in the United States. This is the first child for Ziyi and the third for Chinese rock musician Wang Feng, who has two daughters from previous marriages. Feng reposted their daughter's birth announcement on his Weibo account shortly after Ziyi. "The dust settles, spring begins and flowers bloom," the 44-year-old Voice of China judge wrote. 

The new parents got engaged in February when Wang proposed to Ziyi by delivering a diamond ring via drone at her 36th birthday party.

Ziyi found international success in 2000 with Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, winning winning the Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Female and earning a BAFTA Award nomination for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. A sequel, titled Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny, is due in February, but Ziyi will not appear in the movie. Her other credits include 2001's Rush Hour 2, 2002's Hero, 2004's House of Flying Daggers, 2005's Memoirs of a Geisha, 2009's Horsemen and 2013's The Grandmaster.
