Though you may hear people say this in the more westernized Chinese communities such as Singapore, Hong Kong, or Shanghai (and, usually it is in English), traditional Chinese rarely express such affection verbally, no matter it is to a child, a parent, or a lover. They may, however, say something like, "Oh, you are so lovely!" or "I like you very much." Or, asking: "Do you love me?"

"Oh, you are so lovely!" = 痷稲
"I like you very much." = и尺舧
"Do you love me?" = 稲и盾

This is a common way of expression. There are many other ways for Chinese people to express their affection in such extend but more subtle way.
