Chinese actress Yao Chen gave birth to a baby boy on Monday evening (July 15) in Beijing, Sohu.com reports.

The boy weighs around 6.8 pounds, and both mother and baby are in good condition, Yao's publicist told the media.

Yao's Sina Weibo microblog is now filled with congratulation messages from her fans. The actress has over 49 million followers on Sina Weibo, an achievement which has brought her the title of "Weibo Queen".

The baby is 33-year-old Yao's first child; the father is award-winning cinematographer Cao Yu, whom Yao married in late 2012. Yao had previously ended a seven-year marriage with actor Ling Xiaosu in January, 2011.

Yao Chen is best known for her performance in the 2006 TV drama "Wu Lin Wai Zhuan" ("My Own Swordsman"). She stars with Zhang Ziyi in the 2009 film "Sophie's Revenge", and also acts in Feng Xiaogang's 2010 comedy "If You Are the One 2", as well as Chen Kaige's 2012 film "Caught in the Web".
