One famous Chinese couple is kicking the new year off with some exciting news. “My Fair Princess” actress Ruby Lin (林心如) and “Imperial Doctress” Wallace Huo (霍建华) are happy to announce that they are now proud parents of a baby girl!
The 41-year-old Taiwanese actress posted an adorable picture of her daughter’s footprint on Facebook last Friday (6th Janaury), along with the caption, “The world is beautiful. Welcome our little angel!”
Lin was originally due to give birth in late January but was hospitalised last week and went for a Caesarean section after being admitted into Chung Shan Hospital in Taipei. Huo reportedly halted filming his new drama, “Ruyi’s Love in the Palace”, to attend the baby’s birth.
According to Strait Times, the newborn weighs 3.3kg (7.27 lbs.) and is 50cm (19.7 inches) in length. The new mum revealed that her daughter has 2 dimples. “The two of us have one on one side, she has gathered two, it’s so fun,” she told Apple Daily.
Lin and her 37-year-old beau first met on the set of “Sound Of Colours” (地下铁) in 2006 and were reunited onscreen for “The Glamorous Imperial Concubine” (倾世皇妃) in 2011. Their relationship may have took 10 years to progress from friendship to love, but things started to speed up after they were officially an item.
Shortly after going public in May last year, the lovely couple got married on 31st July in Bali. Although the duo initially kept Lin’s pregnancy a secret, the actress eventually confirmed that she was 3 months pregnant after the wedding.
Best wishes to Lin, Huo, and their growing family. We’ve no doubt that their little angel has inherited their good looks ;)
