It appears that we won’t be hearing from Wang Leehom (王力宏) anytime soon. The Taiwanese-American pop star announced that he’s taking a temporarily hiatus to spend some quality time with his family and to help his wife, Lee Jing Lei (李靚蕾), who is currently in her last trimester.
Leehom first made the announcement in February earlier this year that his spouse was expecting their 2nd child.
In a Facebook post on Sunday (25th September), Leehom explained that it was actually his pal Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg who inspired him to halt work and focus on his family.
“2 months paternity leave is actually an idea I got from my friend Mark Zuckerberg. If someone that busy can do it, why can’t I? Studies show it’s good for building strong family interaction, decreasing postpartum depression and…having been through it once before guys, my two cents is, it’s just an awesome time to bond,” the 40-year-old artiste wrote.
It looks like Leehom has been enjoying time off work too, when he shared several photos of his family having a ball of a good time, including a snapshot of him and his 2-year-old Wang Jia Li (王嘉莉) enjoying an afternoon at the swimming pool.
He was careful not to reveal his toddler’s face for her own protection but felt inspired to share what happened. “Today I told a story about a little girl, her father, and a big white swan,” he captioned the pictures.
Although Leehom did not reveal when Jing Lei is due, we’re glad that Wang family is having such a good time together. We bet little Jia Li is stoked that she’s going to be a big sister soon!
All the best guys ;)
