Although it has almost been a month since Taiwanese actress Barbie Hsu announced her pregnancy, Barbie's management revealed on Monday that she has decided to end her pregnancy following her doctor's advice. 

According to Apple Daily, the 41-year-old had to terminate the pregnancy after it was found that the foetus had developmental problems and had to be monitored closely. A recent check-up then found that the foetus had no heartbeat, which led to the couple taking up the doctor’s advice to terminate her pregnancy.
