Her celebrity status began with a photo posted on social media in 2009, showing Zhang holding a cup of milk tea, which resulted in her nickname “sister milk tea”.
In 2011, Zhang was admitted to China’s top college, Tsinghua University, and studied abroad at Barnard College in New York where she met Liu.
The couple dated for three years before tying the knot in Beijing in August 2015 and held a luxurious ceremony in Sydney, Australia the following October.
