German Korean pianist Redlinger, 26, first met Lang Lang, 38, in Berlin a few years ago. The young star is also known for her singing talents. She performed ‘River of Remembrance’, the Chinese song released by Universal Music China to promote Frozen 2, the Disney musical sequel.
Rumours first emerged of Redlinger’s pregnancy in April, after she posted a photo on Weibo that led to speculation on social media.
Our congratulations to the happy couple and their new addition. We wish them many, many years of trios together…
