She remained very busy in her career and because of that couldn't start a new family life. She was then, suggested by a friend to consider the procedure of surrogacy and conceive a baby.
Working with UNICEF for as long as 10 years, she spent much time with children from all over the world. She explained,
"I have to say, there is something incredibly special about children. There is an openness and sharing and love they give to you in a matter of seconds. That is something that you start to lose, as you get older, for whatever reason."
Lucy received many negative criticisms for having a baby via surrogacy. Talking on the very subject matter, she said to CBS news,
"I didn't really think about it at all. I just went ahead and did it ... I didn't realize there was criticism until after I sent out the information that I had my baby through a gestational carrier and my friends said, 'Don't listen to what some people are saying.' I didn't realize people were saying anything negative!"
Further, she explained that parenting a kid is more important rather than focusing on such unnecessary matters
"It doesn't matter the machinations of how things occur. How you love and parent a child is most important. That's the support system, really."
Liu has just celebrated 3rd birthday of her baby boy.

Being a blessed mother, she is enjoying every phase of life with her boy. Liu, no doubt, is a perfect mother but what about her dating life? She is most probably single at present as she is not spotted spending a quality moment with someone special.

"Neither of us are into big, showy events and we talked about a quiet marriage, somewhere with just a few close friends and family and no big deal, I know that when you're involved with Hollywood it's almost expected that you will put on a big extravaganza or do something outrageous, but I'm not like that."
The pair parted ways sometime later keeping everything a mystery.
