Ever since news of Hannah Quinlivan’s delivery surfaced, fans of Jay Chou have been waiting with bated breaths for more baby updates. The couple’s baby has been hidden from the media since her birth on 12th July this year and was nicknamed “Little Chouchou” by fans.
But now, in celebration of the 100th day of the child’s birth, the face and name of Taiwanese pop king Jay Chou’s firstborn have finally been revealed.
Hannah officially gave a sneak peek of her face on micro-blogging site Sina Weibo on Wednesday (15th October). It caused quite a frenzy as fans worldwide swooned over the baby girl’s long eyelashes.
Their daughter’s name was also revealed to be Hathaway.
Hannah Quinlivan also wrote a sweet note along with her Weibo update in both Chinese and English which read:
Dear Hathaway, you’re almost 100 days old. Daddy and Mummy are very happy to see you growing up happily day by day. Thank you for adding more emotions and more responsibilities to our lives. We hope that in the future, you will have a good outlook on life, and be able to meet life’s various challenges positively and make every decision bravely. My dear, remember we will always support you. Hope you can grow with happiness, joy, and love, and grow up with no worries.
Between the two, Jay Chou has been the more private one with regards to their marriage and now, their child. However, he did previously share a mysterious photo of himself and his daughter, with her back to the camera.
At that time, she was only a month old.
Hannah, on the other hand, shared stories of a childbirth and even reached out to mothers to get tips.
In fact, in an interview with Chinese Elle magazine in August, she revealed that Hathaway’s birth was not a smooth one.
The 22-year-old said she had given birth by Caesarean section (C-section) during which she suffered a deep cut. But she said the pain was worth it after she got to hold her baby girl. Hannah added that at that moment, she felt the bond that mothers had with their babies and said the pain was worth it.
Later that month, she wrote a plea on her Weibo account asking for tips to get her baby girl to sleep and said she has not been sleeping well for “a long time”.
Fellow mummies advised her to take it easy and not get too anxious as babies have irregular sleeping patterns and don’t usually sleep through the night. They said it may take 6 – 9 months for the baby to get a regular sleep pattern.
We’re cheering you on, Hannah! Can’t wait to see more baby pictures soon 🙂
