The veteran Taiwanese singer admitted to using her late husband's stored sperm for artificial insemination

Veteran Taiwanese singer Jenny Tseng finally broke her silence and confirmed that her daughter, Melody, is late husband Alexander Fu's daughter and was conceived via artificial insemination after his death.

The 59-year-old made a guest appearance on Taiwanese programme Mei Wei Sheng Huo, where the host grilled her to the point where she finally gave in and admitted the truth behind Melody's parentage.
The host revealed that she knew that Alexander had stored his sperm before he died, and Jenny had conceived via artificial insemination. A stoic Jenny replied, "It's the truth."

Alexander died in car crash in 1983, leaving Jenny a widow after less than a decade of marriage. The two had no children as Jenny had suffered four miscarriages when they were married.

Four years after Alexander's death, Jenny went to the US and gave birth in secret. She remained tight-lipped for 25 years about Melody's father despite rumours that the father was a lawyer from Macau.

Melody is said to resemble her father in many ways, especially her face shape, eyes and jawline. Family friends have revealed that Jenny's home is adorned with numerous pictures of her late husband.
Melody once shared that she feels contented with her life, adding that she is happy even without knowing who her father is.

Its very sad that she miscarried 4 times and in a way, this is a blessing that she still managed to have his baby.

Actually, this isn't exactly a 'revelation'....Jenny had hinted at this before in previous interviews, it's just that she never really came out and said it this bluntly on a television program. I remember reading a Mingpao interview she did last year where she pretty much said the exact same thing....so basically, this is 'old news' already....

For years there were articles about how she had her daughter go to the cemetary to pay her respects to Alexander Fu. She told her daughter to call him "dad." In one of her last concerts, the Fu family were in the audience and she told her daughter to say "hi to grandpa." So really, it's pretty much an open secret. It's only now that Jenny admits it.

I remember watching Alexander Fu's movies when I was younger. I actually preferred him over Jackie Chan. I can't imagine what the genre would be like if AF actually is alive today. He and Jenny were a stunning couple.

He and Jenny were a stunning couple.

And Jenny Tseng and Alexander Fu-sheng in the first place kinda look like each other ... skin coloring, hair and all.
To me, daughter Melody also looks a lot like Jenny Tseng (picture 1)
