Chinese model-actor Sean Zhang best known for his appearance with his son on popular reality show ‘Where Are We Going, Dad’ recently announced his divorce with his wife of 12 years, Kou Jing.
The 37-year-old made the shocking revelation on Weibo and said that they have been separated since 2017 due to “differing opinions” when it came to family.
He, however, reassured his fans that he and Kou Jing are successfully co-parenting their kids and urged fans to not jump to any conclusion.
In his post, Zhang also expressed his reluctance to share the news with everybody else.
“I originally did not want to make this news public, but I still have to inform everyone of my current situation. Kou Jing and I officially divorced in 2017. It was only due to differing opinions when it came to our family, and we are still co-parenting our kids. I hope that everyone will not jump to conclusions.”
Zhang and his wife who is also a model have a four-year-old daughter born in 2015.

Zhang’s announcement has led to a lot of rumours amongst netizens who claim that in August this year, the actor shared anecdotes about his marriage on television.
