The martial arts superstar Jet Li, who turned 57 on Apr 26, has posted two photos on social media where his wife, former actress Nina Li Chi, makes a rare appearance.
In the Instagram post on Sunday, he thanked everyone for their birthday wishes as he wrote,”This year, I wish that the world heals and is able to come together as one during our fight against #Covid-19.

Thank you all so much for all of the birthday wishes. This year, I wish that the world heals and is able to come together as one during our fight against #covid-19. I also wish that you are all happy and healthy. I am so grateful to be safely in quarantine with my family. #staysafe #birthdaywish
“I also wish that you are all happy and healthy. I am so grateful to be safely in quarantine with my family.”
Li was with Nina Li in Paris in an undated photo. In another, the couple were with their two daughters, Jane, 20, and Jada, 17.
Nina Li, now 58, was known for her sexy image in several movies during the 1980s. Ever since her retirement from showbiz in 1992, she has shunned the spotlight and has never appeared in any of Jet’s pics on social media.
Even their two daughters Jada and Jane have refrained from posting photos of their mum online.
Of course, Jada and Jane did not miss out on the opportunity to dedicate their birthday wishes to their dad, too.
“Happy birthday Dad! I’m so grateful for your patience and constant support no matter what, even if I’m bad at showing it. Thank you for all of your efforts to make me happy and your consistent displays of love.” wrote Jada.
“Happy birthday Dad! When I was a kid, every night before bed, you’d pick me up and carry me on your shoulders. I’d always laugh as you paraded me around the house chanting and singing. I thought the world of you. Twenty years later, you are still equally loving, gentle and silly. You have not aged in spirit. Although you don’t carry me around physically anymore, I always know you are there for me and I think the world of you. How lucky I am to call you my father, but also my mentor and one of my best friends. I hope that I will be as kind, strong and wise as you are someday. And with all my heart I hope you achieve everything you wish to achieve in life and beyond — you deserve only the best,” Jane said, adding the hashtag #quarantinebirthday and #likefatherlikedaughter.
Happy blessed birthday, Jet Li!
