He may already have many skills (singing, writing, directing) that we know of, but here’s one more to add to Jay Chou’s list – Daddyhood.
Yes, Taiwanese singer-songwriter Jay Chou (周杰倫) and wife Hannah Quinlivan are now proud parents to their little bundle of joy!
According to United Daily News, the confirmation came after rumours went round that 21-year-old Hannah had given birth to a preterm baby by caesarean. It was so secretive that apparentl, even Jay Chou’s long-time manager J.R. Yang, who lives in the same neighbourhood as him, did not know. In fact, when called to confirm the rumours, Yang said, “Good question. I have to check on this.”
Although Jay Chou declined to disclose his baby’s birthdate, he did say through his manager:
We had a daughter. Hannah and I are very happy.
Rumour has it that the baby girl arrived on 10th July. Yang said that Jay Chou has also asked to take 2 weeks off to dedicate his time to his wife and daughter. Yang added it was not a premature birth, but “a caesarean that had already been arranged”.
In a separate report by Shanghaiist, Jay Chou reportedly rented out the entire 6th floor of a confinement hotel in Taipei for the recuperation of his wife.
The luxurious Ma Cherie Postpartum Centre, situated in Jinsan South Road, has 6 rooms on its 6th floor. The VIP room that Quinlivan reportedly lives in contains luxurious amenities such as a massage chair and an air purifier. 6 meals will be provided each day, with a weekly menu that include dishes like oyster sauce pig trotters, five-grain rice, and sesame oil pig liver soup.
The centre, which is just 10 minutes driving distance away from Jay’s home, allows him to easily drop by for visits. There are also many strict security measures, including a special electronic wristband that is only given to family members for the access of the centre, parking space and even elevator.
Only the best for Jay Chou’s beautiful wifey and new addition to the family, right? We don’t know about you but we can’t wait to see the baby pictures!
Meanwhile, Jay Chou will resume touring in September.
