Taeyang (real name Dong Young-bae, 태양) is officially a dad. The BIGBANG member and wife Min Hyo Rin (민효린) have welcomed their new bundle of joy into the world.
Shortly after Hankook Ilbo broke the news, Taeyang’s agency YG Entertainment confirmed it. “Taeyang’s wife Min Hyo Rin recently gave birth to a healthy son,” a rep from the music label said.
The 33-year-old K-pop star and the 35-year-old actress first met in 2014 on the set of his “1AM” music video. The lovebirds got engaged in 2017 and announced their pregnancy in September 2021. In case you didn’t know, Taeyang is the first BIGBANG member to enter fatherhood.
Here are 5 reasons why we think Taeyang will be an awesome daddy:
- He’s wise and mature – He’s always been a deep thinker and planning out his future.
- Strong but gentle – Despite his hunky physical features, fans have always noted his warm personality.
- He always wanted to become a dad.
- Even his BIGBANG bandmates have commented that he’ll be the best father out of everyone in the group.
- He’s good with kids.
Congrats to the new family on their new addition. Christmas is indeed going to be a merry occasion this year 😉
