But then, many of them like actress Angelababy recognize that she is more needed by her son Little Sponge which explains why she is not in the taping for Season 5 of “Hurry Up, Brother,” the Chinese version of the famous Korea game show “Running Man,” Toggle reported.

To explain to viewers of the popular variety show why the only female cast would not be seen temporarily when Season 5 airs again, the production crew released a statement on Tuesday. The statement said, “Angelababy is taking care of her little baby, we’ll be waiting for her to make a return after she fully recovers [from labour].”

Temporary Stand In

During her absence, another Chinese actress, Dilraba Dilmurat, will stand in. On her Weibo account, Angelababy wrote: “The spirit of show will not change, we welcome Dilraba to the team. But I’ll be joining everyone late, wait for my return.”
